Hip, Hip Hooray…we’re off to C.H.A.! Cath and Susan are, right this very minute, roaming the floor of the Craft & Hobby Association Summer Show in Orlando – checking out the goods and bringing back a full report on all the delicious new products being released for fall and winter. Start drooling now…we’re here to get you in the spirit!

And I want to get you in the spirit of our September/October issue (that goes on sale TODAY!), but first I want to touch on one little bit of housekeeping. Some of you may have heard that CK Media (parent company of Paper Crafts magazine) was sold. The dust has settled, our name was changed to Creative Crafts Group, and we’re now an affiliate of New Track Media. Other than losing our beloved Art Director in the shuffle (more on that in a few days), we’re still here every day, putting together this magazine that we all love so very much.

So, right on schedule, here’s our September/October issue, packed full of fun for Halloween and sweater weather (and I hope you didn’t miss Cath’s Moxie Fab sneak peek last Friday!).

Paper Crafts September/October 2009

Our spooktacular September/October 2009 issue! Click on this cover image to order your copy today!

There’s something extra special fun about this issue, too – a You’ve Been BOOed sign that was custom-illustrated by our Lone Design Man Matt Anderson. I had so much fun BOOing people around the office last year that I asked Matt to help us share the fun with you in our own Paper Crafts way this year.

Share a little BOO! with your neighbors or co-workers this Halloween!

Share a little BOO! with your neighbors or co-workers this Halloween!

Use it as is or let the little artists in your life put color in the pumpkins and spook in the skeleton. You can download the pdf HERE. Have fun, and spread the BOO! spirit around your neighborhood or office this year. Tell ‘em Jennifer sent you. Hee Hee!

So tell me: what kind of fun do you scare up for Halloween? Have you ever gone BOOing? Do you make cards? Paper-crafted treats for a classroom or church group? Leave me a comment by midnight MDT on Friday, July 31 and I’ll pick two random winners of both of these spooktacular collections from My Mind’s Eye:
