It may seem far away, but Halloween will be here before you know it. Pick your costume now, and you'll have a head start on picking up everything you need, not to mention plenty of time to make it. And don't forget the decorations! Whether you're having a party, or just want to decorate your home or office, handmade projects are unique and fun. However, they can take a good chunk of time. As a mom working full-time, I personally have very little time for crafting, so if I don't get going now, I may only have a single knit spider to hang on my door come October. 

For inspiration and projects, check out this booklist. Another great resource is from the Queen of Crafts, Martha Stewart, who may love Halloween even more than I do.  So get to work and make this Halloween the best one ever!
