Perfect for Making Halloween Costumes! Glow In the Dark Yarn from Bernat

Bernat’s New Glow In the Dark Yarn

How cool is this? Be prepared to pay tho. Glow in the dark yarn from Bernat called “Glow” is 3.99 for a small skein at Michael’s craft store. You could start stocking up now with coupons. It glows after being in light . This would be great for Halloween costumes- I see lots of potential for over stitch as an accent on costumes or around cuffs of mittens and hats. This yarn comes in several colors that “glow” and good for both boys and girls.

Great Halloween Treat- Nutella “Mummies”

These would be fund for a sleepover or at Halloween. I found the idea at Unfurled, where you can find complete instructions on how to make. She used bread mix and nutella spread and then added some icing eyes, I thought the idea was simple yet genius:-)

I think you could also use store bought bread dough ( like Pillsbeary brand) and other spreads.

Turn Your Own Hand Writing into a Font for Computer and MS Word

Very cool! Great for scrapbooks and “letter” writing. I know of two highly recommended sites, http://www.fontgod.com/ will turn your handwriting into your own personal True Type font for 29.95.

The pricier Also vletter.com is also a popular option.

9.00 will get you your own font at http://www.fontifier.com/
The personalized font is great to use in journal ling. I like the look and feel of handwritten writing in a scrapbook- but I know many who hate to do it and let fear of making a mistake stop them from journaling. getting your own personal font would be a great idea for some people- also very high cool factor!

If you have expericne with gettign your own fonts- let me know- post in comments section!
