This blog is a place for me to talk about all things Fall related. I'm hoping it'll be a place to help keep me organized and on the path to stress-free holidays (if there is such a thing)!

August GPD

For those of you who don't know, GPD stands for Great Pumpkin Day. You are supposed to spend some time on this day doing things that will help you be ready for Halloween. So in honor of this, I decided to get my little treat bags ready today.

I spent the better part of this morning driving all over town looking for Halloween crafting supplies. It is absolutely amazing just how hard it is to find orange paper. Who knew?!? I finally decided to go a cheaper route and buy paper in a pack ($3.99) as opposed to $.25 a sheet. Now, there's only 10 sheets of orange but there's also 10 sheets of purple so I figure I can use both. And I bought a pack of white cardstock to round it all out. I did manage to find some orange sheets at Michael's that were marked down to $.15 so I grabbed those.

I also bought some stickers and a pumpkin hole punch. I saw a bunch of rubber stamps but they were a little on the expensive side so I'll wait until they go on sale or use a coupon to purchase them.

Now I get to go and cut out 50 bags. After this, I may just BUY the little gift bags on sale after Halloween for next year! :o)
