13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop Day 12

 Welcome to my blog! There is lots of fun stuff
happening today so if you are here for the "13 Days of Halloween blog hop you are in the right place" if 
you are looking for the "Bootiful Halloween Blog Hop post"
you can hop on to HERE

Welcome to the 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop.  This hop is scheduled from Oct. 19 at 8:00 am through Oct.31 at 11:00 pm (central time).  It's that time of year when the nights are all spooky and creatures are known to wander the forests.  So sit for a spell with a nice cup of hot apple cider and check out all the great projects.

If you just happened to come to this blog, you are at the beginning with Lisa Peters-  

We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and a great grand prize for this hop.

The hop is a 13 day hop with only 13 blogs to visit so you will have plenty of time to make it through the whole hop lineup 13 times.  Check out each blog and see what blog candy you can win at the individual stops.  Please come back all 13 days to see great projects.

Here is the complete lineup:

 Here is my project for you today! I made an advent calendar for my little boys. It has pockets to tuck in little toys or treats or you can take a little puppet on a Popsicle stick and move it to each pocket. I made the black background with just yardage of felt material from Joann's that was on sale for 50% off so it was only a couple dollars =D I purchased some Halloween theme wooden pins to attach to some of the pockets. I used the " All Mixed Up" Cricut cartridge to create the numbers. I used Little Scraps of Heavens "Its on the calendar October" to cut out the title all with felt. I used the "Hello Kitty" Cricut Cartridge to cut the title Happy Halloween"

Thank you so much for hopping by to see my Halloweeny project =D I have a fanpage on Facebook and would love for you to come by and "like" my page and keep in touch!
I will be giving away some blog candy at the end of this hop to a random lucky winner. All you need to do is be a follower of my blog and leave a comment along the hop. The more comments you enter each day helps you to win! I will be giving away this Halloween Making Memories Flocking and foiling kit:

and also remember to be eligible for the grand prize at Lisa's blog, you must visit each blog and leave a comment and become a follower of her blog.Now for the blog candy she is giving away,It will be a big treat bag full of goodies you don't want to miss! Lisa will also be posting an individual prize for each day of the hop also that everyone who hops that day will have a chance to win.

  6. I know I'm a few days behind but wanted to stop by and see some of the stuff I missed during the hop. I was in it but so busy unpacking and doing the trick or treat thing that I didn't get to visit everyone's blogs everyday like I had planned. Your calendar idea is adorable and I'm sure your little ones loved it! TFS Jearise in Lorby's World.
