Last week I mentioned the funny article about the “unexpected” Halloween tree decor. I just love the way Vermont Country Store repurposed the Christmas gumdrop tree into a Halloween gumdrop tree. (Not an affiliate link, I’m just a fan.) This transparent gumdrop tree can absolutely be used year ’round. I love it!

If you are following the Can’t Wait for Christmas podcast, then you know about Christmas Con coming up in New Jersey in November. It looks super fun and I hope New Englanders can attend and report back to CM365.

Remember the fireworks cookies? And how I said this technique also works for spiderweb cookies? Well, look what I saw in Walmart. All in one box for less than $5.

On to this week’s prep list…you just need to have some butter around, for Friday’s prompt. All the other prompts this week don’t really need any preparation. I hope you are enjoying this lovely beginning to fall.
