This is month two of giving recognition to things that make me happy, and less on the negative aspects of life.
Making connections with my dance students. It’s always difficult to be the new teacher at a well established dance studio. And just as the students are apprehensive about me, I need to find that perfect balance of being in an authoritative role, and not being a meanie! So when I make a connection, with a student who has a slight learning disability, it really makes me feel great. And I enjoy the hugs I get at the end of class too!
Teen Nick released The Splat at the beginning of this month. It’s a lineup from 10pm to 6am that runs every night showing the Nickelodeon programs I grew up watching. I have enjoyed reminiscing, and laughing when they show the great prizes the kids won on Double Dare. Such prizes include, a typewriter, VCR, and Nickelodeon Slime Shampoo.
3. October is the best month for scary movies, and the childhood movies from Halloween’s past. November 1st is always a little bit of a let down. 😦
4. I’m prepping for a craft show. So in every spare minute I am trying to get some sort of craft done. I’ve been rolling prize puffs, gluing cupcake toppers, folding origami curio cones, and crafting like a maniac. I have two that I am hoping to attend in November, and at least one in January. We will see of this little crafting dream of mine will fly!
5. My wild “pet” lizard. He lives on our bathroom window, on the outside. We started seeing him a few months back, and he made our bathroom window his home base. He spends the night there, and comes back several times a day to chill out. I got worried when I didn’t see him return, but so far he is still hanging around.
What things made you happy this month!
Today I am popping in for a short post. It’s Halloween week at dance class, and I am also planning a Halloween themed dinner for the husband and I, as well as prepping for my craft shows! I am a busy girl.
Today I am showing you a preview of some of the items that will be on display at the show, and will be in the etsy shop afterwards. If you want any custom prize puffs, curio cones, or other vintage goodies and gifts, please let me know!
I know it’s Halloween week, but I have been turning out Santa and Snowman prize puffs and party crackers left and right!
I love Halloween week. Do you have any fun Halloween activities planned!?
I’m getting really excited for the spooks to roam on Halloween night. I always have a blast teaching my little kids, (and big kids too) for the Halloween week of dance. I love playing all of the Halloween music that I grew up with in dance class.
Who else caught a few showings of Hocus Pocus already?!
Today I bring you three easy Halloween Makeup Looks using drugstore makeup of course!
