Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Witch's Brooms...

43 degrees - 10:36 am - foggy and raining...

Here is another super easy and cute idea for Halloween and you probably already have everything at home to make these.  My sister and I made these a few years ago, they were a huge hit and everyone loved them!

You will need:
- brown paper bag (2 for each favor)
- twig
- yarn
- scissors
- can’t forget the candies & treats!

Starting at the upper edge of the first bag and stopping just above the base, cut bag into narrow strips.  Starting at the upper edge of the second bag, cut strips only half way down the bag (***this is important so you can still fill up the broom***).  (Note: The lunch size bags are sort of big, so we just cut several inches off the tops to make them a little bit smaller.)  Now place the half cut bag inside the fully cut bag and fill the bag up with treats.  Put your twig into the bag, gather upper edges of bags around the twig and tie the yarn around the bags and the twig.

--- Enjoy!
