Grounded the Kids?!

I so love this time of year and sometimes I feel like I’ve seen it all. I think all of the Halloween manufacturers are scared this year (pun intended). A few years ago it was so fun to go shopping for Halloween. Every year they seemed to come out with the coolest new props. I’m so glad I spent the money then because there is nothing but the same old crap out there this year. Seriously?!? Did they run out of ideas? Are they not producing as much because of the state of the economy? I was in Party City, Halloween City and Spirit Halloween yesterday and let me tell you, they are pretty much cleaned out. I was looking for something specific I had seen online but with no luck. I think this is the first time I have ever walked out of those stores with nothing in my hand. It got me to thinking about going more old school. You know, making all of the decorations yourself. Maybe in a year like this when there isn’t much to write about I can get inspiration from other people. I decided to go online and see what other people have created from basic stuff. I found this Grounded the Kids decor that is absolutely hilarious and a little creepy too. I just love the idea and what makes it a really great idea is that you can go simple like this or make them really scary. I found this on The Fun Times Guide.

Frog Zombie

I usually stay away from blogging about things on Etsy. Not because I don’t like it, but because I think I like it too much. Well, that and the fact that a lot of the things sold are one of a kind items. This time I had to make an exception, though. I came across this little Frog Zombie and just fell in love. You know I have such a weakness for zombies. He’s made by Plushroom Soup. Check out some of the designers other zombified animals. I’m especially partial to the Unicorn Zombie since I hate unicorns. What makes them so cute is that they are made to order and the designer will customize it for you. You decide how bloody and gory you want them to be. The arms and legs are held on with magnets, so they are removable. The frog doesn’t come cheap, though. He sells for $48, but totally worth it to get your handmade 10″ Frog Zombie made to your liking. Now if only I could find a real one…
