Easy DIY Halloween Party Favors

There are so many cute Halloween party favor ideas floating about the web, like the witch's broom goodie bags for example, though they do require some DIY experience. These tin-tie bakery bags are the perfect size for a Halloween goodie bag, and they require no crafting skills. I love howthe favor bags I made them with are cute enough for kids but still nice enough for the grown-ups as well. All you need are the bakery bags, ribbon, and 3D Halloween stickers from the craft store. You can use the smaller bag pictured above or a larger bakery bag with a window display. I like to fill the larger ones with treats to give out as holiday presents to neighbors and teachers.



Simply fill the bags with a Halloween treat (homemade or store-bought), close them up and tie them off with ribbon, then affix a sticker to each bag. These are food-grade bags, so they're perfect to fill with homemade fall treats like popcorn, kettle corn, or Halloween chocolates. Try my DIY gourmet popcorn

Krisztina's Blog: Just Ignore the Frantic People


It's the week of Christmas! It has come so quickly just as it does every year, and I just wanted to remind you guys to not get sucked into the last-minute panic. Affirm to yourself that you "are calm" and that you "don't need to do anything else", well that is of course unless you really do still have shopping to do like me. If that is the case, affirm that you "will have time and will get it done". I know it seems cheesy, guys, but positive self talk is a huge tool in keeping a positive and calm attitude. And words have so much power over our moods. Run around telling yourself, "I have so much to do. I don't have enough time," and you're likely to get so stressed and exhausted that you probably won't have time. When it's down to the wire, you simply have to assess what your priorities are and what you actually do have time for. Then forget about the rest! Who cares?! If my kids don't get to make both sugar cookies and a gingerbread house this week, are they going to be disappointed? No. Is it going to ruin Christmas? No! But what will ruin it for me and my family is if I'm running around like a crazy person all stressed out and complaining about the things I don't have time for.
