It's Halloweek: Witch Crafts

As a kid, the first time I saw Samantha twitch her nose on Bewitched, I have always wanted magical powers.  Who wouldn't? Making things happen with an incantation or a  wave of the hand is the most awesome thing ever.

In fact, witches have been making a serious comeback over the years, from smash Broadway plays like Wicked to kicking monster booty on shows from Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Charmed  to The Vampire Diaries. This fall, they are ruling on TVD's spin-off The Originals and the latest witch dramas, American Horror Story: Coven and The Witches Of East End (which I just watched Sunday and love!). So of course, today's Halloweek post is all witch crafts.

How adorable are Dimple Prints' Witches' Brew drink bottles? All the paperware you see are courtesy of free printables she is sharing as part of her blog hop.

Speaking of drinks, don't forget to check back at Sunday's D.O.W. for this Witches' Brew cocktail from Pillsbury.

One of my favorite party tricks for added ambiance is playing muted movies in the background (depending on your audience of course). Here are a few classics...

Practical Magic
Hocus Pocus
The Craft
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters
The Witches Of Eastwick
The Blair Witch Project

Tune in tomorrow for reanimated ideas...
