We have quite a few Halloween crafting traditions around here and I think these semi-spooky glamour-witch hands are at the very top of Kinley's fave list. I love them too! It's hard to go wrong with any project that involves both washi tape AND warts, amirite?!

I saw this old monster hands post on The Happy Hooligans' blog a couple of years ago and, after adding a couple of twists to make it more us, it was an instant every year must.

Instead of wallpaper sample skin and band-aids, our fancy witchies are more into nail polish and sparkly rhinestone bling. Less cold and clammy, more haute and glammy 😉😎

Good news, my fellow dinosaur-loving friends: Gigantosaurus, that hilarious/super cute must-read-aloud picture book we all know by heart and adore, is coming to the Disney Channel in the form of a brand-new must-watch preschool kiddo TV show! Kinley and I had the privilege of a sneak peek at the first episode and we both loved it. The dino buddies are charming, the colors are super bright and happy, the story lines are smart and engaging, Gigantosaurus is just the right mix of goofball and ferocious, and the theme song is so dang catchy you will probably find yourself humming it even after the kiddos are in bed (not speaking from personal experience or anything 😉).

Because I am both amped about the premiere and in full on egg-carton-critter-making mode, I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate that big fierce wild bookish dinosaur getting his own show than to make a cute little slightly-less-fierce egg carton version of him. Wanna make one (or 12) too? 😁


I don't know which I love more about that project: the rainbow doily remnants or the finished art itself! Doesn't it all just make your eyeballs so happy?! I've got some good news for ya, too -- if you've got a teeny tiny person at your house, you might just be able to make this one happen! I used to do it every year with my daycare babies -- if you can sit up, you can make a pretty heart doily painting.
