As a boy, crafts and decorating guru Stephen Brown found himself in post-holiday doldrums after every big celebration, but he learned that through crafting for the next upcoming occasion he could turn those feelings around and "make every day a holiday!" After working as a costume designer for television and film, Stephen launched Glitterville, his successful line of giftware and home decor products that has been featured in Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion, Southern Living, Country Living, and numerous other publications. When he's not crafting, Stephen is traveling the globe producing new Glitterville products.

As one who leaves my Christmas tree and decorations up far longer than is considered appropriate, I really agree with the idea of making every day a holiday through crafting, as author Stephen Brown asserts in his book. You may recognize the author’s name, as he is one of the judges from Craft Wars, that addictive show on TLC. In Glitterville’s Handmade Halloween, Stephen Brown has assembled the “kookiest compilation of Halloween crafts and decor” and the main thing I noticed is how the projects are fresh, new and so creatively fun! I have to also comment on the design of the book, which is filled with gorgeous, beautifully lit photos and eye catching design elements on every single page. There are a wide range of projects in it, including edible treats, wearables, and decor items and each one is accompanied with a fun and funky poem that lets you know a little more about them! My daughter chose the Chenille Pumpkin as our first thing to make, as it only used pipe cleaners, crepe paper and a bit of felt to make this little cutie, and we had all of the items already. We got a bit carried away and made about 12 of them since they were so simple to make, and we think they will look adorable hanging on our front door to greet the trick or treaters this year. I really hope Mr. Brown authors another book for the winter holidays, I’m sure it would be just as magical!
Adorable figures and decorations, especially for a family with kids. Something different - love it!
