You know, I have a girlfriend who SWEARS I’m Martha Stewart.
Really, I’m not. I mean yes, I do have a few more “Martha” habits, like baking bread, and making preserves. I even come up with some great and useful tips from time to time. But I don’t have that eye (and unlimited budget) for making everything perfect and beautiful.
As a matter of fact, I don’t even read Martha Stewart’s “Living” because it stresses me out. There are just too many ideas to try, and I know that I’ll never get to all of them. Plus many of her projects seem to require unusual (or expensive) supplies.
All that being said, I do love the craft projects on her website. Especially the free printables. I love when you can get something wonderful and classy looking for free!
For Halloween they have a bunch of projects, ideas and printables. My favorites are these really cool little printable Halloween candy treat boxes. Although Martha suggests using them to hand out your candy to trick ‘o treaters (yeah, right, we get over 200), I think they’d be cute if you get guilted into sending treats in to your youngster’s class. After all, even cheap candy or homemade cookies/caramel corn will appear to be extra special in it!
The Edward Gorey-esqu printable Halloween wine labels (Murky Merlot and Queasy Reisling) would turn a basic bottle of wine into a great hostess gift!
And there is a whole slew of great creepy silhouette templates-mice climbing up stairs, bats, witches.
Ahh, I just love free printables!
