I'm haven't been a big fan of Halloween since I outgrew Trick-or-Treating (if you're curious, you can find out why in this post), so October is usually just one more month of lead-up to Christmas. But this year I have three special events on the calendar for October and I'm slightly giddy. First up is Murder, Monsters and Mayhem (or Mx3) - a month-long celebration of all things spooky, mysterious or macbre. You can find out what I'll be reading and watching, in this post.
Dewey's Read-A-Thon is scheduled for Saturday, October 13th - twenty-four hours of reading, blogging, entering challenges and meeting new bloggers. This will be my fifth read-a-thon (it's held every April and October) and it's one of the most anticipated days of the year for me.
And when I'm not reading, reading, reading - I'll be crafting. In hopes of getting lots of Christmas gifts made, I signed up for Trish's Pin It/Do It Challenge. The challenge encourages Pinterest users to stop making plans for "some day" and start accomplishing some of those pins. The projects don't have to be crafts - they can be recipes, decorating, personal goals, traveling, gardening - whatever you have marked as something you hope to accomplish. You can view my board of potential projects here.
For more information or to join any of these fun events, click on the icons in the sidebar to the left. And have an "All together ooky"* October.
