It's October 1st...you know what that means?

I've browsed through these, gathering up ideas.

I am so sad that I didn't have a new Mary Engelbreit, to draw inspiration from this year, but I am sure thankful for the past issues!

I've pulled these out of storage. Disclaimer--- this is not all Halloween, it's Halloween mixed w/ fall & Thanksgiving. I do not have as big a problem as it appears.

And I've dug out these new things I've bought over the past year.

OK, so maybe I do have as big a problem as it appears *grins* but I'm working on it, I'm working on it. I bet you $20 bucks that I'll get it all packed up in 3 bins this year...counting the new stuff. ;o)

I'm ready to put the scare on! I'll share pictures when I'm done. In the meantime, here are posts w/ pictures of last year (didn't do much) & the year before last's pictures. I'm real big on horror novels & movies so I LOVE Halloween!

Update: It's official....I have a problem. There was another huge bin in the storage shed so y'all can't hold me to that $20 bet!

Oh girl, I am printing this post out and giving it to my husband!! He thinks I am the only crazy with a closet dedicated soley to past issue magazines. I also relate totally to the bins of decorations. We're helping the economy right! Lisa

That's nothing girl! I'll bet I have at least 10 boxes for Halloween and Fall/Thanksgiving. And about 30 for Christmas. And I still have boxes in my parents shed. I definitely need to start purging.

Oh my.......you have Halloween like I have lace.....it is an addiction, but one I can live with, and if others can't....oh well..... LOL! You girls disappoint me.....I keep my mags out in a designated bookcase to easily access....I don't hide'em. I've got to be able to get to them quick in case I need a fix.....xojana

Oooh, can't wait to see whatcha' got, and hopefully steal, err, borrow some of your ideas :) My crap is all still downstairs even though I've been saying since waking up this am that I'm going to decorate today. LOL. Maybe not so much.

Cami, I've been looking all over for a "followers" here. I'll just put you on my blog list! Oh, it's scary how much alike we are. I have tubs and tubs of old magazines, I just hate to throw them out. Heck, what if I needed an idea. And as far as boxes and such of decor I won't even go there. My husband knows it's useless. I just have to deal with it all myself!

You make me smile. I think I only have a pumpkin on the front step. But you know I love coming here and seeing how a person with real talent does it. Someday, maybe I'll go crazy and maybe buy a wreath or something! LOL

Laura said...

It doesn't look like a problem to me! In fact it looks familiar and normal,


Sandy Michelle said...

Oh I have a huge bin with Halloween creations and supplies as well.I think all artists are hoarders of art things. I can't wait to see what you do with your lovely stash :)


Elise said...

Charlene said...

PS was such fun to meet ya! I'm sorry not a chance to get together to talk, but we need to meet for lunch one day! :D

Hey Cami!
Oh it was so much fun seeing all that you found, and catching up with you...I love that dresser, girl I don't think I'd even paint it...I love that shade of green! I cannot ever pass up table linens either, even though it's been a while since I've created a tablescape.... I still keep picking up placemats and napkins whenever I can! LOL! I am lovin' your pink gingham ones and the florals too for that matter. Can't wait to see what you and hubby found at the estate sale...yep, sounds like he's hooked on them sales now! LOL!

Seeing your Halloween bins remind me of my dreaded bins that I need to still go through for the flea market sale. We have so many bins of junk that we are gonna take to the flea market...(mostly things I've picked up.... and then had one of those...what was I thinking moments) LOL! Do you ever have those? It's okay though...I'll fill you in on a little secret that I'm not telling the hubby about. I want to get rid of some of the junk that's in our bins in the storage room, so that I can make room for and get more junk!I think it must be the thrill of the hunt thing! LOL! Hubby will figure it out later!

By the way....I loved the post about your Halloween Bins,that was too cute! Us girls can always find a way to fit in one more thing...can't we?! LOL!

Hope you have a great night! So glad you stopped by!
Big Hugs,
