Sharpie Spooktacular

October means two things here at Sharpie; Ink it Pink and Halloween.

The past couple of years we have presented the Sharpie world with our favorite creations surrounding “all hallows eve” and this year is no different.

Hold onto your broomsticks for this year’s edition of the Sharpie Spooktacular (cue creaky doors and creepy soundtrack).


A little air, an original black Sharpie marker, a dash of imagination and you have some gravity-defying decorations.

Need a solid muse for creating your macabre mansion? Start here, then add Sharpie paint markers and permanent markers and you’ll have yourself the best home in your ‘hood.

HINT: Sharpie Oil Based Paint Markers work best for projects involving; glass, metal, pottery, wood, rubber, plastic, stone, and more. They are quick-drying and resistant to water (but not waterproof), fading, and abrasion!

Sharpie Boot Camp

total body workout pushupsThere’s nothing better than the feeling you get from a good old fashioned kick-in-the-pants, early morning workout!  Your body feels amazing, your mind is fresh and ready to take on the day and frankly, it’s just nice to get it out of the way!

The Total Body Boot Camp and Nostalgic Catering took group fitness a step (a lunge and a push-up) further with the 1st Annual Total Body Pumpkin Bootcamp on October 18th at OZ Park in Chicago, IL.  Ten challengers were asked to bring one pumpkin weighing between 3 and 10 lbs. to assist them during the morning workout and were put through an hour of intense cardio, strength and core excercises.

Wait.. What is this, a fitness blog? Show me the Sharpie!

Ah ha, well my Sharpie loving friends, here is the cherry on top of the non-fat, zero cal. sundae!   Sharpie markers were provided to all the participants to uncap their Fall festive mark onto their pumpkins.  The bootcamp not only pushed physically but also creatively, encouraging the challengers to write down favorite excercises and give each pumpkin a personality of it’s own!

Not only were creative minds at work making Sharpie Pumpkin art, but after the workout Nostalgic Catering provided Homemade Chili and Fresh Apple Pie, putting those taste buds to work as well!  (OMG,where can I sign up?)  Now this is what I call a total body workout! :)
