It takes quite the team to pull this off, but we’re here for you! We’ll be here every Monday through the end of the year to make sure you’re on track and able to enjoy everything you have planned.

From our friend Kristen:

It’s OCTOBER!!! My favorite month of the year!! The air is crisp, the nights get a little chilly and the world is ablaze with color. It just feels like everything is alive! One of my favorite holidays comes in October… Halloween!!!
Kid-Friendly, Budget-Friendly Halloween Crafts

Toady I’ll be sharing with you some craft ideas for your Halloween Shindig!!

I don’t know about you, but come this time of year I start to buckle down on the spending. I have just had to buy my oldest a whole new wardrobe as he has out grown every item of clothing- UGH!! So I thought I would come up with some cheap, easy and kid-friendly crafts for Halloween. I tried to also use items from around the house whenever possible.

Mummy Jar Craft
Ghostly Milk Jug Craft
Scary Eyes Craft

When you’re done crafting with the kids, it’s time for some relaxing “Me-Time”! So how about trying these delicious beauty DIYs from our friend Jessica:
