Winning, Cheating, & Mummies

How’s that for a post title?

Today we are having a meeting.

First order of business:  Winning.

The winner of the Soggy Doggy Super Shammy Giveaway is entry #45…Lisa!  Congrats and I’ll be in contact with you!

Second order of business: Cheating.

Today is the Random Acts of Craftiness challenge reveal.  This month’s challenge was “Odds and Ends from the Hardware Store.”  I am cheating.  Erin said it’s okay.  I am linking up our console table.  It’s only sort of cheating.  We did originally go wandering through the hardware store trying to figure out what we could cheaply/uniquely use for legs for our distressed top. Copper pipe for the win. Be sure to check out the other unique ideas from people that put forth effort this month.  (You can do so here!)  I’m just ahead of my time.  I totally like bands before they exist.

Third and last order of business:  Mummies (and ghosts)

Today is a big day at work.  Almost the entire medical clinic dresses up for Halloween.  It’s always a good time. There are prizes for group and individual costumes.  The pharmacy always goes the group route.  This year we are going as the Peanuts (Charlie Brown and company). I’m Pig Pen.  Check out my Instagram feed on the right side of the blog for photos.  Halloween is also cause for a potluck (as is Columbus day, Flag day, etc.).  I whipped up these cupcake mummies and Nutterbutter ghosts.  I don’t mess around on potluck day.



Both are super easy to make.  The cupcakes are from a box with a powdered sugar + butter + vanilla + water frosting.  My frosting was a tad too runny but I was kind of over baking by this time so I went with it.  The ghosts are Nutter Butters coated in white chocolate with mini chocolate chips for eyes.  Easy peasy Mcsqueazy.

Are you dressing up for Halloween?  The kids?  The dog?  What are you/they going as?  What’s your favorite Halloween treat?  Did you participate in the Random Acts of Craftiness challenge?
