Mini Halloween notebook.

Good Tuesday morning!  How are you today?  We're in for a warm day today.  It was pretty cool several days last week so it will be nice to have a warm day today.

Last week when I showed you the thank you cards I made for my cousin, I thought I would make something for her daughter too.  She's in first grade this year and I know how my daughters love little notebooks and notepads so I whipped up a little Halloween themed one just for her!


This is a mini composition notebook I picked up at Walmart for $.77 in the office aisle.  I covered both sides with Halloween paper and distressed the edges.  After adding a bit of  ribbon, I embossed a pumpkin with some orange embossing powder and matted it on black paper.  Just a fun place for her to keep little notes this fall!

So, for dinner last night we had spaghetti squash.  Have you guys had this?  My neighbor Leah LOVES it, my friend Joy LOVES it and various other people have raved about it lately.  Last night was the night and I have to say, it was a big hit at our house!  We will definitely be having it again!  So yummy and SO filling!

Have a fantastic Tuesday and I'll see you back here tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping in today and sharing a few minutes with me.  :)

  1. That is such a cute notebook! I love the pumpkin, it reminds me of the trick or treat buckets I had growing up!

    I haven't tried spaghetti squash yet, but everyone raves about it! I need to find a good recipe, and maybe a larger group of people besides just AJ and I. I'm glad it was a hit at your house!

  2. That's a nice thoughtful thing to do! I loved (OK, I still do!) writing in notebooks when I was a kid. Love the pumpkin and the ribbon. However, I am not that adventurous with veggies and I've not done a spaghetti squash. I'd have to "try" it somewhere else to see if it's something worth cooking myself...... Happy Tuesday!

  4. Cute notebooks. I love spaghetti squash but the last time I almost cut my fingers off when I was halving it. So I am afraid to get it now. Any tricks?

  12. Your mini note book is so cute.
    I haven't seen these tiny ones yet...mind you I never get to Walmart either.
    I have never had spaghetti squash. Sounds like a lot of work, don't you have to fork out the squash.....or can you buy it pre done, lol.
