Halloween with Matthew Mead

Today I am finishing decorating for Halloween.  YAY!!!  Stay tuned for a post later this week, probably Thursday.

My go-to source for holiday inspiration is Matthew Mead's magazines and blog.  They are fantastic, and this year's Halloween issue went far beyond my expectations.  :D  I am copying was inspired by the lovely features and photography, and I cannot wait to share with you a project inspired by Halloween with Matthew Mead.

Have you bought your copy today?  I saw one in Publix the other day.  ;P

Here is a photo of my copy:

Don't you just love the monster cake?  It is too cute.


Until next time...

Blessings!

  13. Looks like fun. I seem to have a hard time getting motivated to decorate for Halloween although I enjoy seeing what others do....a bit boring I guess?
