Happy Halloween!

Today's Before & After Friday is a little scary and
might not be too popular with all fleaChic readers.

We're going to look at creative face painting for Halloween

And here's a B&A of The Mystery Machine:


These two best friends have spent Halloween together for years.

This is definitely the most brilliant
use of scrap wood for Halloween:

You wouldn't have to actually cut out a Jack-O-Lantern
face on one of these cans.   Just use black felt or paper.

Why decorate spooky when you can decorate
