This is Halloween, this is Halloween!

Greetings all my fellow handmade enthusiasts!  It's the most wonderful time of the year, and if you follow us on twitter @pineapplecrafts, you'll know we've been thinking a lot about Halloween lately!  From tonight (Thursday, Oct. 27th) through Halloween evening, we'll retweet all tweets sent our way that feature pictures/links/info on anything Halloweeny that's handmade!  Send us your etsy links, your blog links, your how-to articles, your fancy photos of your crafts displayed on freshly carved pumpkins, anything that celebrates the season and is crafty!  And tell all your friends who are makers who may not follow us yet.  It's a win-win situation for all us craftoholics!  We're happy to retweet these posts and give all our crafty friends some easy social media exposure that fits the holiday!  Plus we're excited to see what everyone's cooking up!  You can also send along your handmade costumes or home decorations.  We wanna see it all!  :)

What else is up with Tinned Pineapple?  We're preparing for Steel City Con!  All three of us are very excited to vend at such an awesome event right here in our backyard!  If you've never been, it's basically a geek's dream for a great price.  A whole room full of collectibles and crafts topped off with pop culture celebrities to meet.  Show up in costume if you want (we might even offer a little discount to those in costumes!).  The dates are December 2-4 at the Monroeville Convention Center just outside of Pittsburgh, PA.  Their website is steelcitycon.com where you can see exact times and prices.  It's quite a good deal for one day or the whole weekend!  And what perfect timing to get all your Christmas shopping done for the scifi/horror/sports/TV/movie/anime/pop culture dorks in your life!
Otherwise, we're just prepping for sales and the holidays.  All is exciting with starting a new business based on something you've been doing for ages!  We're also working on getting a kickstarter account to help with an upcoming project.  More about that as it happens!  And now, back to working on updating my personal etsy (I'm the Isn't That Something? piece of Tinned Pineapple), so we can all three of us have a nice full selection for those of you who can't make it out to our local sales.

We'll see you after the weekend when I'll be uploading lots of Halloweeny pictures!  Have a great and safe time at all your parties!
