I’m super busy today – Miss A’s class Halloween party is this afternoon and I’m “in charge.” Of course, my crafty side went a little nuts and I probably took on more than I should have – but I think the results will be very cute. I’ll post them soon, you might find a new idea or two for next year (or even this Sunday if I get it up in time!)
At the moment though, Lil’ G is playing with a buddy so I wanted to take a second and share a few cool things with you. I’m not going to say that the “Friday Fast Five” will be a weekly feature, I’m just not that organized – but I will try to make it a fairly regular one.
This Friday’s Fast Five:
1: Bath & Body Works has a great coupon on-line for a free lip item (web code = FREELIP). I just LOVE their C.O. Bigelow mentha lip tints. They changed the packaging and I freaked, thinking the product was no longer available!
2. Paper Glitter, one of my favorite place for printable pretties, just released their free Fall/Thanksgiving set. It is awesome! AND FREE! Looking through it is sure to give you lots of crafty ideas for decorating fun. Like it? Let her know Drama Mama sent you. 🙂
3. Lil Lollipops Designs, the talented Mama who owns the Etsy shop customizing Lil G’s capelet, is hosting a giveaway for a vintage re-fab purse. Check it out here. I’ll be featuring Lil Lollipops as a Monday Muse here soon, and she has graciously offered to host a giveaway to go along with my post! So keep your eye out for that on a Monday soon.
4. Susanna Ives, author of the recently released Rakes & Radishes, clued me in to a fun website: The Toymaker. You need to check out all the funky FREE Halloween printables they offer! I had Miss A’s class do the Papel Picado flags for the Halloween party, hopefully I’ll get a chance to snap a few pics today and post that as well.
5. NaNoWriMo kicks off at midnight on Halloween night! If you’re thinking of giving it a try, please do! Here’s my NaNo author page, buddy up with me and I’ll race you to the finish line…my goal is 20 chapters, around 4k each…give or take. That’s 5 chapters a week. Nearly 3k words a day. No, I don’t think I’ll manage that daily word count, but I’m hoping to average it, if that makes sense.
