My kids are "alternative-beautiful."

Every Halloween I set up this little spooky tableau on my piano.

Notice the holy water. That is 100% real holy water! I got it from a Catholic shop in Salt Lake. I pretty much wanted to buy everything in the store even though I'm not Catholic. I feel so much more prepared for the Apocalypse now that I have holy water.

And check out that photo of my beautiful children!

You too can beautify your children for Halloween by simply covering a photo with plastic wrap and then defacing it with sharpies.

Make sure you keep checking Happy Valley Crafters! I am posting a photo every day this week. It's so good, it will make you want to live in Utah! hahahaha.


  1. I should probably follow your lead and get some Holy Water to have on-hand in case of a Religious Emergency. And I love the photo. They are the most precious demons ever.

  2. Totally agree with Johi about needing to have some "on hand" LOL If you have glass in the frame, you can still deface it with Sharpies!! Just wipe the glass with isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol afterwards! And Happy Valley Crafters does make me want to move to Utah... so sad I'm moving to Kansas instead :( BOO!

  3. BRILLIANT. I think I might even have a little shadow box that I can put the holy water in! haha! and yes, Claire, the Happy Valley CRAFTERS would welcome you and love you and braid your pretty hair.

    Johi, word.

  4. I have no idea why crafters is in all caps.
