If I told you I didn’t have Halloween decorations in mind when I designed and built the chicken run I’d be lying. It was barely done before I strung it up with with twinkle lights. I considered putting my giant spider webs down there but considering how often the geese go barreling though where they are in front I didn’t think they’d last long that close to the barn (the geese are no longer cute and tiny). I needed a new idea and it just so happens that a few years ago I saw a few pictures of ring-around-the-rosy style ghosts and fell in love. I wanted to do something like that but I wasn’t sure where or how. After we finished the run the where became pretty apparent but the how was still eluding me.
My fridge was looking a little neglected this season, we collect magnets from all the places we visit but none of them really say ‘Christmas’. Besides it was time to clear out the clutter of expired coupons and calender magnets from 3 years ago anyway. On my craft store travels I picked up three three packs of wooden ornaments from Michael’s to make these holiday magnets. My favorite is the little reindeer with his gold antlers.

We’re giving lots of photos as gifts this year. I was in Micheal’s checking out the frame sales when I found this metallic red frame (there were a few other colors and some with glitter but we stay away from that lest we have another Disco Baby incident). After a quick stop at in the scrapbook paper aisle I headed to check out with this holiday sign in my mind. Yes, for once, something actually turned out like I had imagined!
