Is it too early to start talking Halloween? Never you say? Well great, I’ve got two things.
Tom Nardone, the creator of ExtremePumpkins.com and the man who introduced the puking pumpkin to the world is coming out with a book called Extreme Pumpkins: Diabolical Do-It-Yourself Designs to Amuse Your Friends and Scare Your Neighbors. It will include information on tools, design strategies, carving techniques and special effects as well as a whole lot of truly disgusting pumpkin displays. It’ll be out in early September, I can’t wait.
Martha Stewart has added some Autumn and Halloween items to the Crafts line at Michael’s stores. I am falling terribly hard for a bunch of stuff: Specimen Slide Invitation Kit, Finger Invitation Favor Kit (I love that this one won’t die), Black Gift Box Single Cup Cake Kit, Mice Silhouettes, Spider Confetti (darn cute next to the Giant House Spiders we keep encountering), and Mad Scientist Large Bottle Labels for wine bottles.
