I am burning mosquito repellent candles like nobody’s business in my backyard heaven but was getting annoyed by having to throw out all the half-finished candles. Because of the way candles burn, you just always seem left with no wick or a drowned wick and 1/3 of the wax left in a sorry, twisted shape. I decided to recycle it all and make new candles and was surprised how dead simple the process is.

Well….another Christmas season has come and gone and this weekend was the last for our little tree’s comfy stay in the corner of our living room.
But we’re not kicking it to the curb this year! Instead, we relocated it to our front porch.

I love the Fall – and the awesome holidays that come with the cooling temperatures. Back in the day, my mother used to throw Halloween parties for the neighbourhood kids where we traipsed through cardboard mazes, stuck our fingers in bowls of witches’ eyeballs and monster brains, and of course there was the food. My dad worked a lot, so having him come home early to help us carve the pumpkin was always really special – and family pumpkin carving is a ritual my husband and I continue with our boys.
I’m not ready to host the neighbourhood yet…but I have come across some pretty awesome food and décor ideas online that I can’t wait to try out in a year or two. Here are a few project ideas to check out if you’re planning a Halloween bash for your little ghouls this year – and one project I just couldn’t pass up trying (with my own spin of course!).

I have piles of empty picture frames sitting around my house. I’m not talking one or two…more like 12-15 split over several rooms. My intentions were good when I first purchased them but then “stuff” got in the way. So, to appease my husband and perhaps my cleaning lady too, I decided to try an Easter craft that would help get a few of these frames off the floor (albeit temporarily) and onto the walls.
