Boo!



I'm starting to get ready and geared up for Halloween. I made this kit for a gift flood I'm involved in. I'm hoping to jump start the recipient with her treats for the kids.

I think it's my favorite holiday...have you ever sat outside in the dark shadows of a warm night and listened? Especially right now. The crickets are in full song and the critters are prowling.

Several years ago...and occasionally even now, I sometimes can't sleep...if it's after 2 AM, I'll venture outside and sit on my porch and just listen. A few times I took a BW film camera and had a field day playing around with night shots...but instead of helping me relax and ready myself for the covers again, it woke me up. I ended up watching the sun rise, making the work day somewhat unpleasant. Which reminds me...it's almost tomorrow here on the east coast and it's not Friday.

Here's a close-up of the card. I'm doing a workshop in October. This is one of the cards we'll be making.



Cheers and...creepy night to all!

Yummy card! Ha ~ who wouldn't want a tasty treat! Love how you made the spider paper ~ I'm all for spiders as long as they stay outside (or on paper)!

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice
