Spooktacular Sale - If you could cast a spell...

Halloween is right around the corner.  Everywhere you go, you see spooky {yet fun} decorations for this holiday, many include witches! This reminds me of a brief moment in our countries history in 1692-93 - the Salem Witch Trials.  During this time 200 people were accused of practicing witchcraft and 20 were executed before admitting this was a mistake. 

This kind of gets me thinking...
If you could cast a spell, what would it be?
Here is how a few of my fellow Etsy shop owners in the Handmade Circle Team answer this question.
Holly at Holly's Homemade Goodies said:
"If I could cast a spell...I would stay skinny and 29 forever. Of course, everyone around me would continue to age and add on poundage. Oh! and I would make candy corns calorie and fat free"
{Be sure to check out this adorable Owl and Birds Quilt/Blanket}
Carlin of Polly-Wog Patterns said:
"My spell would be that everyone in our HMC team would feel very loved and appreciated and would sell everything in their shops by the end of the year."
{How cute is that Vintage Art Trading Card Ornament?!}
Ashley of Brenny's Bibbies said:
"A spell to get rid of financial woes.  Not to be rich, just to be able to get by without worrying."
{You must check out this cute Felt Witch Hat and Magic Wand set}
Neena at Handmade Exclusives said:
"If I could cast a spell... I would eliminate the need for folding laundry. The clothes would shake out, fold and in individual drawers they will go.  More time consuming and thankless chore I am yet to come upon... Not to mention how much more time there would be to paint."
{And painting Neena does well! These Hand Painted Note Cards are amazing!}
Jessica at The Prismatic Peacock says:
"If I could cast a spell... I would turn everyone I meet into a loyal customer of The Prismatic Peacock! That would make my business thrive for sure!"
{I am sure this smells delightful - Witching Hour Scented Natural Soy Candle}
JoAnn of I Sew Much Time said:
"If I could cast a spell... I would have groceries appear in the cabinets, pantry, refrigerator and freezer without going to the store!"
{I would love that! And I also love this Pumpkin and Crows Table Runner}
Marsha of Bags by Hags says:
"I would cast a spell,
For all of us to be well,
And it would be swell,
If everyone would sell, sell sell!
(very cute!!)
{As is this Pumpkin Hot Pad Set - perfect for fall}
Jayne of Twiggy and Opal says:
"My spell would be cast upon my Etsy shop! No one would be able to resist my creations and would have to buy! It would become so successful, that I could finally quit my day job and devote all of my time to the one thing I love to do-SEW!"
{And how could you not want to add this Red Quilted Pillow to your home?}
Shannon of A Moment in Paradise says:
"My spell would enable me to click my heals together and be transported to Key West any time I wanated."
{I just love this Graveyard Coffee Mug Candle... spooky and perfect for the holiday!}
Troy of California Mermaid says:
"If I could cast a spell, it would be that financial and other resources would always be available as I needed or wanted them!"
{And this Witch Bottle Cap Necklace is so fun!}
I think these are some great spells!  They all seem to be along the same line - making lives a little bit easier!  Wouldn't that be lovely?
