How do you turn a fall wreath into a Halloween wreath? Add a bunch of spiders. (You can see the original fall wreath HERE)
I had already gone with a pretty orange-y color scheme for my fall wreath. So I picked up a package of those plastic spiders and simply added a handful of them to my wreath. Then when Halloween is over I can take the spiders back off and keep using my fall wreath right through Thanksgiving.
The kids want to add some of the spiders to our spider webs and who knows where else. There were 50 spiders in the package we got, so they can have lots of fun.
“I’m not addicted to reading, I can stop as soon as I finish the next chapter”
I don’t know where the quote came from, but I read it recently and discovered it’s pretty truthful about myself.
We had a pretty quiet weekend at our house. I’m taking two classes this semester as I work towards finishing my degree (it’s getting closer!) and instead of taking two full semester classes this time I signed up for 8 week long classes that run consecutively. The first one finished last night and I spent the weekend working on my final paper. I’ve taken quite a few online classes and this one has been my favorite by far. It was a contemporary American fiction class, and it had the most diverse syllabus. We read Beloved by Toni Morrison, White Noise by Don DeLillo, and Good in Bed by Jennifer Weiner. The over arching theme of the class was how to decide if a work of literature is “great” and what that means.
My next class is going to be a children’s literature class. Hoping I get some good idea’s for my own kids!
