As I sit and look out my window and see sunshine and blue skies, it’s hard to think about Halloween.  Though I look at my calendar and can hardly believe that it is only 12 weeks away.  Amazing how fast time goes by as you get older.  Each day seems like there aren’t enough hours in it.  They must be being sheered off somehow!

Spooks, Goblins and Ghosts are on their way.  We are just 12 weeks from Halloween and I will be showcasing a spooktacular Halloween item every Tuesday until the big day.  To see me live, watch at www.facebook.com/juliescraftlanding on Tuesdays at 10am pst.
