Yep - Thursday - gotta loooove Thursday. It's a half day for the kids so I don't have to make them a lunch (we always head to McDonald's and then run a few errands and/or go to Grandma's house for a playdate) and there is just enough time in the mornings for me to get a few things done before I have to set off to pick them off. Today we are off to the other side of the world for a dentist appointment and then Sparks tonight so there is not pressure (or time!) to get any "real" house work done. Oh darn ... THAT breaks my heart! *lol* (yes .... I'm on my second cup of coffee and feeling FINE this morning!)
Right! On to Halloween. Once again I STARTED my Halloween Treats for the kids' friends back in September but once again I FINISHED them this week (actually I'm usually finishing them the night before like 99% of the other Moms out there!) Well I'm happy to say they are done and ready to go. Here they are:
Fun! They were a bit time consuming to make but easy. The stuffing of the candy corn took the longest. I hand colored each of the witch's stockings with the "drirect to stamp" method, using the markers. It wasn't that bad, really - I did it while listening to a webinar to pass the time. I used the 1 3/4" circle punch and the 2 3/8" scallop punch. It took 2+ pieces of 12x12 card stock in both the orange and the white so they weren't the cheapest treats to make either but they were something a little different.
Now the NEXT project had me just giddy with excitement while I made them :) (yes, I could probably use a little therapy sometimes ... or less caffeine!) I cased them directly from the FABULOUS Tamye Dunbar. They were quick, easy, fun and ADORABLE!!! Lookie:
Have a fun day everyone :)
