Happy Halloween

Trick or Treat!

A few years ago I had opened the door to head out and to my surprise I had been Booed! (no not for writing a terrible blog post). It was a small little jar of goodies in a cute package sitting on my doorstep. It brought joy to my day. I’m not too sure how many of you are familiar with this little tradition but it is fun! Instead of candies though, a goody bag of fabrics and notions for quilting would be fabulous!

Halloween Quilting Fun

How to BOO someone…

  1. Start a few weeks before Halloween
  2. List 2 or more people that you would like to “Boo”, secretly
  3. Gather supplies for as many people on your list.
  4. You will need a container and what goodies you will be placing in it.
  5. Assemble package in a fun or spooky way as per your choice
  6. Deliver packages anonymously
  7. Smile knowing that you have made someone’s day by “Booing” them and they don’t know by who.
