Happy Halloween

Ghoulish greetings to everyone! We're hosting a party tonight, so today's note is going to be short and sweet because I've still got a loooong list of things to do. (Yep, that's loooong with four O's. LOL! Good thing I've got help, huh!)

But, as you know, Halloween means costumes (I'll show you photos of ours tomorrow)...and this got me wondering about what YOU have dressed up as? Let's do some BLOG CANDY, too! No tricks on this one, only treats. Just leave a note in the comments section of this post telling me about your favorite costume you've worn in years past (or will be wearing today). I'll accept entries until Monday, November 2nd, at midnight Central time. Two winners will be randomly chosen on Tuesday morning, and each person will receive one 10918MC Gobbles Turkey Clear Stamp Set:

Remember, if you post anonymously (in other words, without signing in), be sure to add your name or we won't be able to include you in our drawing. It will be the winners' responsibility to contact me via email no later than November 6th. If we don't hear from the winners, we won't be re-drawing...so please remember to come back and check. Good luck!

I love this set! Perfect for Thanksgiving which is my favorite holiday.

Living way out in the country, we didn't trick or treat as I grew up on a dairy farm and my mom didn't have a driver's license. But the favorite outfit I've ever seen was a little girl that came trick or treating here one hear as a raggedy ann doll. She was only about 6 months old and was the cutest little thing ever!

My favorite costume would have to have been my Indian costume. I dressed up as an Indian and my middle daughter was a pilgrim. (She was in college when we did this). My poodle was dressed up as a princess too. We had a big decorative turkey too, so when the kids came to our door we were dressed too. We had so much fun doing this we dressed up in these same costumes on Thanksgiving day - we had to drive 1 1/2 hours to my sisters and talk about funny looks but we had a blast ringing the door and see everyone's looks. I also dressed up like pink panther one year - I always dressed up when I took my kids trick or treating. They always thought it was fun when Mom dressed up too.

I would love to win the stamp set. I don't have many Thanksgiving stamps.
Thanks again.

We had a Halloween party at work one year and I dressed up as a hobo. It was a really fun time, but when I got home I was shocked to find out the red and black makeup I smeared all over my face wouldn't come off after having it on my face for 10 hours that day. I tried everything I could think of to remove it, but it had stained my skin and I had red and black streaks on my face for a couple of days after the party.

fun! My favorite costume was when my oldest daughter went as an American Girl Doll (molly), my middle daughter was a princess in a gold lame dress that I MADE, and my youngest daughter was a dalmation. It was lots of fun!! My personal favorite costume was the year I went as a blue M & M! Gotta love it!!! Because I can't get it to post, I am going to add my e-mail right here...just in case!

I didn't go out much for Halloween when I was young. My favorite costume, though, I made for my niece was a dinasour costume!
This stamp set is wonderful! I'd love to win it - I think I have one Thanksgiving stamp set!!

My favorite costume was the "feathery" witch costume complete with flashing ghosts that I wore at my school's Halloween Carnival this year. (My grandchildren thought I was absolutely beautiful!)

Thanks for the chance to win these adorable stamps.

My favorite costume would be one that I made for my daughter several years ago. She was a fortune teller. We had a table with a crystal ball connected right to the front of her! She looked great and even won a prize at the costume contest!
Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy!
Trick or TREAT!!!!

My favorite costume was a hobo in 5th grade. A fellow classmate (a boy) dressed up as a gypsy and we were the last two left in the class that no one could figure out who we were.

My favorite costume was a "Flapper Dress". I didn't have the money to buy looong(3 "o"s) fringe so I carefully pulled strands of thread out of the taffeta until I got 12" fringe. It took forever but the fringe was a perfet match to the rest of the dress. Now I will have to look for picture as I travel down memory lane. Thanks for reminding me. These are good memories!

I always wanted to be Strawberry Shortcake when I was little but never was. I was thrilled this year when one of my 3 year olds chose that as her costume. Her red hair meant that we only needed to add a couple of curls and she was done. Her twin sister was Padme from Star Wars and her hair was awesome but a bit frustrating to work on with a 3 year old. I was lame and just wore a Halloween shirt, but that's ok since I had the baby in her carrier anyway. She was a lady bug and as cute as could be!

What a cute set! Probably the best costume I wore was when I was probably 12 or 13. I went as a twin joined at the hip. My "twin" was another girl that was named Amber Joy which is also my name. I can't completely remember what we wore but it held us both. Of course we had to explain our costume a lot that night.

I don't have clear memories of any of my childhood costumes. Isn't that strange? I'll have to ask my mom what she remembers. I remember 2 vaguely. But my fave as an adult was when I was the tooth fairy. I had a gorgeous gown and sparkly wings and a set of rotten teeth to top it all off.

My Favorite Costume was when I was in 1st grade. A LOOOOONG time ago. I was the purple pie man from Strawberry Shortcake. The best part was my mom even made me a real pie to carry with me that day.

As an adult I once dressed up as Auntie Em. My girls were all Wizard of Oz characters, so I decided to play along too. I was the "grey" Auntie Em. I wore an entire grey outfit, and painted my face and hair grey too. It was kinda fun playing along with the girls.

My favorite costume is a hippie costume - a vintage silk batik top with wide flowing cuffs, extremely faded jeans, and knee-high suede boots with fringe. Peace!

My husband and I attended a Halloween party years ago and I dressed up as Slash from Guns 'n Roses. The tall dude with the black top hat and frizzy long hair??? Yeah, that was me w/fake tattoos, pack of smokes rolled up in my t-shirt and a wig so long and frizzy I ran into everyone and every wall that night. Beer had nothin' to do with it Ü
