Trick or Treat! It's Our Halloween Open House!

Trick or Treat, 
Memory Bound friends!
 I've always LOVED Halloween! I have the best memories of Beggars' Night in the small town where I grew up. Back in those days, my friends and I were allowed to go most anywhere...except to the creepy house on the corner where the scary old man always gave out apples. (Remember what happened to Snow White?!) In addition to Trick-or-Treat, I always looked forward to costume contests at our school. Over the years I dressed up as the Tooth Fairy, a bunch of grapes (in fact, I still have the felt leaves and vines from that costume!), a bottle of Chanel perfume, and a giant face with very long yarn hair, to name just a few of my favorite costumes.

Even though I'm a grown-up now (most of the time, anyway!), I still love Halloween. Instead Trick-or-Treating, now I enjoy making Halloween decorations for our home, so I'm especially excited about all the ideas the talented gals at Memory Bound have BREWING for our first-ever Halloween Open House! Be sure to stop by for all kinds of spooky inspiration! You'll find details below.

New Class: "BOW"Tastic Hair Ribbons!

Hello, Memory Bound friends!
I always tell people that my daughter was practically born with a bow in her hair. As soon as they dried her off, the nurses gave her a pink yarn bow. That tiny bow was just the start of many years of bows. She had bows for every outfit, holiday, and special occasion!

If you have young girls in your life, you'll want to come to our upcoming "BOW"tastic Hair Ribbons class! Bonnie Scott, one of our wonderful Memory Bound customers, is passionate about making bows. She'll teach you how to make your own adorable bows to match any outfit or dress up any special occasion. Check out the details below, then call us at (515) 965-1102 to register!

This is a fun class for moms and/or daughters!

Upcoming Class: Witch Hazel Halloween Book

 Hello, Memory Bound friends!
I've always loved Halloween. From decorating to passing out candy on Trick-or-Treat night, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. 
You can imagine my excitement when I recently discovered a box of Halloween treasures from my childhood. What a find! It was filled with costumes and decorations from days gone by, and they remind me of the images in October Afternoon's vintage Witch Hazel line! (Of course, that doesn't mean that I'm vintage, does it???) Katie has taken this amazing line and magically transformed it into a wonderful album. Take a peek!

Plan to join Katie at her Witch Hazel Album class! You'll create a book which will be perfect for Halloween memories from your past, or new memories from this year. Space is limited in this fun class, so call us right away at (515) 965-1102 to register!
