Faking a Fabulous Halloween :: Flaming Rats

My children were completely creeped out by these rats.  Once they realized they all hated them, it became a game to see who could be around it the longest.  I think Pearl won.  As candle holders, they are perfect for Halloween - and they literally could not be simpler.  Make your own and share them with #weeknightpartygirl.  I can't wait to see your Weeknight Halloween.

Dia de los Muertes {& a Mask}

Tune into Q13 FOX News this morning at 8:20am and we'll celebrate Dia de los Muertes together!

Dia de los Muertes is most identified by elaborate skull face painting and masks made to resemble the dead.  What better way to celebrate than by creating your own mask?  Also - turns out the are unbelievably simple to create.  All you need is a little doodling with a black sharpie.

I searched online for inspiration then just started doodling on the masks.  You can decorate the top with faux flowers, tissue paper flowers, or giant colorful puff balls.    Ole!

You can have your own Dia de los Muertes adventure inspired by the new movie Book of Life!
