Practical tips and advice for a family friendly lifestyle


Rent a “Body Part” Prop from No Non-cents Nanna at Craft Show.

Are you not wanting to buy a Halloween costume but still want to LOOK like you dressed up as your alter ego?

I know many people are flying into Colorado Springs air port in October then stay at the Hilton Garden Inn- without a halloween costume!

So, I got the crazy idea to be renting out “body part” costume props for 10 minutes @ the rate of 50 cents per person at an up coming The Day of the Dead craft show on October 31 at the Hilton Garden Inn.  ( I will sell for full price, too, staring at 25 cents up to $3.00) READ MORE
