It’s September! And you know what THAT means…! But before the mayhem of Halloween decorating begins, I’ve managed to squeeze in a little blog makeover. And to celebrate, I’ve created a brand new, FREE Halloween printable, available exclusively to subscribers.
Spooky Season is well underway and in a few short hours, the rest of Halloween that isn’t already displayed somewhere in The School House, will be coming out of storage.
Yep. Today is the day!
Assuming you’re reading this on publication day, of course.
When I reminded him THIS was happening today, Beloved was delighted. So happy, in fact, he threatened to stay at work, rather than face the Halloween mountain. Every year, after sweating his arse off lugging boxes, he says: “just because you have it all, doesn’t mean you have to USE it all, you know!”
I’ve no idea what he means. There isn’t that much!! And I can see at a glance that at least one those boxes doesn’t even contain any Halloween.
Clearly, that means there’s room for more, right?
Halloween Hauls 2021
I’m knocking on 40 stores so far and even I have to admit there have been rather more Code Orange hauls this year than I anticipated.
My poor credit card; you’ll currently find her crying in a corner.
I blame TK Maxx and HomeSense for all that Rae Dunn! Not to mention the rest of the spooky shelves. We UK obsessives have been well and truly spoiled this year.
Although I don’t think it’s all going to fit in one box.
But that’s a problem for November.
Luckily, Beloved is the most MOST WONDERFUL HUSBAND IN THE WORLD and also the BEST PERSON EVER at packing.
I think I may have to say a lot more nice things before he agrees to repack all those boxes.
Free Halloween Printable
In among all that hunting (for which I may also have bought a lairy new shirt… as you do!), I’ve also been frantically creating new decoration pieces, restocking Etsy, and generally getting my Halloween shizzle sorted.
Including the blog.
Facelift and Media Appearances
Have you noticed anything new around here?
Yep! The pink has gone.
I’ve been SO over it, for SO long!
And exactly how long has it taken me to add last year’s TV, Radio, and Newspaper appearances? I mean, anyone would think a full page feature in one of the UK’s biggest newspapers was no biggie.
Although I still hate that title. Bloody cheek. I don’t even LIKE horror!
It was also about bloody time I added a new freebie to the vaults and what else this time of year, but a Halloween printable?
I really enjoy designing images and offering them as free downloads – it gives me a legit reason for all that playing around in Photoshop. Sure, I could add them to my Etsy, but I much prefer to make my designs available as free printables – it gives me a personal way to thank all my wonderful subscribers for choosing to drop your email into my mailing list.
Because I really do appreciate each and every one of you.
And so… without further ado. If you’re already a subscriber, you’ll find your new printable in the usual place. (The link and password are in the email you receive from me.) Not a subscriber? Grab yours by signing up HERE.
When you receive your welcome email, why not take a moment to look through all my downloads? There are a few Halloween ones, as well as a host of other resources from my @SuzyHomemakerUK days. You never know, you might find something useful!
In the meantime, I’ll do my best to keep adding printables a little more regularly. Although, whether that’ll be before Halloween is anyone’s guess.
Enjoy your freebies, my friends.
A hui hou,
