And the Halloween weekend is upon us! I hope you all have some wonderful plans, whether you are heading out in full costume with friends, or hunkering down at home on the sofa to watch a few of your favourite horror movies. Here's a few things I've found over the past few weeks to help you get in a spooky mood.
I actually went to the cinema as a kid to see Hocus Pocus, so, like pretty much every woman of my generation, it is a must-watch during the Halloween season. These easy to make Hocus Pocus cookies would be perfect for any Halloween party.
I may be doing this over the weekend. I mean, how could I resist a cat-themed carved pumpkin? Have I told you how thankful I am that it's easy to get pumpkins in the UK these days? No way I could have done this with the turnips I carved as a child.
What an ingenious way to add a little Halloween flare to a normal outfit. I think next year I'll be making these in the run-up to October so I can wear them for the whole Halloween season.
This had me at the fact it's a Halloween cocktail with a good bit of bourbon and chocolate. But it is also just incredibly cute.
I love carving pumpkins, but sometimes it's nice to have a few uncarved ones to sit next to the ones with flicker candles. I loved these painted ones, and you can easily make up your own spooky phrases.
I created these freebies several years ago when I first started back into illustration after many, many years. Originally these were digital downloads over on my Etsy store, but as I've always loved them, felt it right to make sure they were available even if I was no longer selling them.
