I love Halloween! It's finally here, the chill in the air is always a welcome sign for me that my favorite time of the year is at hand. Halloween is the beginning of "THE HOLIDAYS", that time when we all bundle up and hunker down for the whirlwind of what is the last three months of the year.
For people like us it's the perfect excuse to showcase our talents to put a smile on people's faces. Whether you crochet, knit, sew, paint, scrapbook, sculpt, or one of the many other countless mediums, it's your opportunity to share your creations with all the people you love, or just put them on display to share with the world. It doesn't matter if your a master craftsman or just like to dabble in the creative arts your offerings will usually be well received if not just simply because you took the time to make it with your bare hands. Of course nowadays our high-tech mass produced world has seemed to drown out some of the appreciation for the simpler things. I think there is a lot to be said for something you put your time, heart and soul into. So no matter what you like to create, take the inspiration of the holidays and use it to bring some joy, and some really great items to the world.
