Elegant Glow in the Dark – Stick or Treat

Here it is!!  My entry is in!!  I’ve entered these fun glow in the dark duct tape pumpkins in the Duck Brand Stick or Treat Halloween duct tape crafts contest.  Tell me what you think!

Would you make this for your home?  I used my filigree duct tape die cuts in glow in the dark duct tape (yes, they have that now!).  Duck Brand duct tapes also now come in little duct tape mini rolls that are thinner and easier to work with for more detailed projects.  The glow in the dark comes in the mini roll too.  I used this for my glow in the dark chevron pumpkin, which is kind of my new favorite!

I’m still working on getting a good night picture to show them glowing in the dark.  I think I can get them to glow better if they were in more direct sun, but they are on a north facing entry way that sees a lot of shade throughout the day.  I’d love to hear any suggestions on this!

What would you make with Glow in the Dark duct tape??

Breast Cancer Warrior

It’s PINKtober!  I love that every year we all rally together in October and celebrate the survivors of breast cancer and support those still fighting.  I love that it has become so common place to see pink everywhere, even on the NFL!  One of my favorite websites and campaigns is the Ford Warriors in Pink line of clothes.  The website is well done and the clothes are cool and gorgeous.  Plus, 100% of the proceeds are donated to help breast cancer charities.  Check it out!

I’ve always been a fan of spreading PINKtober year round.  Check out my PINK duct tape wallets.  I donate 50% of all PINK sales to breast cancer research.

We are more powerful in numbers… I know we will see the cure for cancer in our lifetime… we just have to!

I’d love to hear your Warriors in Pink stories, share them here.

I also love custom orders and would love to donate PINK duct tape items for your charity events.
