I've been so invested in my home improvement projects lately, that I have not been paying attention to how quickly Halloween is approaching. Having purchased the girl's costumes last month, I wasn't too worried about it and we decorated early due to the children's desire to set up the decorations. I often think how fun children make the Holidays. I'm so glad I have their enthusiasm to encourage me, or I think I could just not do any of it at all. One of the main projects I would like to at least have closer to completion before Halloween is our Living Room mantel. I have been working on it for quite some time. It was quite tricky to know what to do to start with, but now it's just a matter of finishing what we started. I'm itching to get it at least to the point of decorating. Here are a few motivations from my pin boards to get me in the mind-set to get the ball rolling!
