Celebrations: The Owls Have Landed {Halloween Décor}

Halloween Owl Decor via homework | carolynshomework.comI usually like to wait until October 1st to break out the Halloween décor but since tomorrow is The Inspiration Board creative party, I’m starting a day early. Considering some malls already have holiday décor up, I think it’s okay.

Extra Credit: Good Taste for our faithful pets

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of ALPO® Brand Dog Food for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Feeding our faithful pets. ALPO dog food via homework | carolynshomework.comI’ve mentioned before that our family dog Sammy is my faithful companion and assistant. She follows me from room to room and keeps me company in my home office. Today she finally gets to help for real on a product review. Here she is waiting patiently while I take a few shots of the product and several of her “waiting patiently”. Confession: This is the only “waiting patiently” shot – the other 29 are of her jumping around, twirling, awkward down dog poses and general out takes.
