Well, its officially October now, and there are exactly 28 days to go till Halloween. What special treats, parties or decor do you have planned for this spooky season? Do you go “all out,” or do you keep it a bit more simple? In another week or so, I’ll start pulling out the decorations. Its always fun and the kids enjoy seeing the transformation. Then, I’ll start planning our annual pumpkin carving party. To help keep track of these fun activities, I created a Halloween Ledger Book. I’m infamous for jotting down notes and ideas on scraps of paper, and its so hard to keep all those little scraps in one place. I’m counting on this to keep me organized, and I’ve put a few in the Etsy store too, to maybe help with your seasonal planning! You can find them HERE.
These spiral bound notebooks are just the thing to write a quick reminder, or a new Fall recipe. Or, they can be used as a mini scrapbook to record the kids’ Halloween costumes or school parties.
The notebooks themselves are made from a spooky embossed ivory chipboard cover (4×7 inches) painted with sheer black paints, and backed with firm corrugated cardboard, also painted black. The ornate frame is painted orange with a layer of crackling. It looks just like a piece of hard candy, similar to what the kiddos will be bringing home this Halloween! A vintage Halloween image, backed against vintage book paper, creates the focal point, and vintage black seam binding tied in a bow tops it off. Old fashioned green ledger paper completes the notebook, and provides ample room and lines for notes.
I would love to hear what you have planned for Halloween! What are your special traditions?
Have a great weekend and Happy Creating!
