Well, It's Over...

... Halloween is --- for this year... Did you have a lot of Trick or Treaters? Did you go to a Halloween party this year? Was it fun? What did you dress up as? I'd love to hear about your Halloween - leave me a comment!

I spent mine sitting outside with my neighbors so we could be a "one stop" candy shoppe... We got quite a few kids this year, mostly younger kids (i.e. less than 2nd grade). I'm not sure they even understand what it's all about, yet, but they look so cute in their costumes.

And it was comforting to see whole families trick or treating this year, with a lot of the parents dressed up, too. In many instances, it appeared to be groups of parents who just happened to have kids to take trick or treating! LOL

Anyway, it was fun for all involved.

How about this for a Christmas home decor idea?


















It's a clear glass block that I picked up at a local hardware store, and to which I applied Definitely Decorative Decor Elements Holiday Mix (page 30 in the Holiday min-catalog) in red (# 117675).

This would be a nice decorative item to sit out through the holidays. Maybe you have room on a mantle or a table. Or maybe it would look good on your porch or patio. This one could even be left out all winter, since it says "Snow".

It needs a bow yet, but I didn't think of it before I photographed it.

Or it would look stunning with lights inside it - those little white lights. There are a lot of ways you could "step up" this idea to make it your own.

And here are the same Holiday Mix Decor Elements applied to a mirror I picked up at Big Lots. I paid $5 for the mirror. Look how adding the Decor Elements dresses it up for the holiday.



When the holidays are over, you can just peel off these pieces, and re-decorate the same mirror for the next holiday!

This time I used the White (# 117676). The price for each of these is $9.95.

These also come in Black, or Chocolate, and are so easy to apply! There are 25 pieces in each set, and would easily mix and match among colors to add even more versatility.


There are a lot of other vinyl rub-ons available in this product. There are items for your kitchen, your bathroom, your living room, or a hallway -- even items for your kids' bedrooms (or your own!).

And remember the family ones (3 cats and a kid) that I put on the back window of my car?



Just click on the Definitely Decorative catalog on the left side bar to check the rest of them out. Let your imagination run wild with your own creative ways to use this product.

And then call me and let me know what I can order for you. Or go to my website and place an on-line order.

If you'd like a real catalog (vs. a virtual one), give me a holler and I'll get one to you.

In the meantime, look at that catalog and let your imagination run wild!
