Happy Thanksgiving!

Just want to share a pic or two of the cards I sent out to family. Also, wanted everyone to know how thankful I am for a very long list of things, including, of course, you, my family (that's you, hubby!) and friends. I appreciate your support of my creative endeavors and all other aspects of my life.

Enjoy and THANKS for visiting!

Halloween Projects

Hello All! School started, so I've been M.I.A. Time flies, so "they" say, and as I get older, it flies faster and faster. With Halloween now over, I know that Christmas will be here before we know it. It always seems that from Halloween to Christmas is a blur. So although Christmas music is playing at the stores, I'm going to to go back in time four days and share a few Halloween projects.

My Halloween card this year was inspired by Pinterest. I know one of my nephews got a kick out of the "googly eyes."

These candy coffins were made using my Cricut cartridge. 

And finally, my costume...a cupcake! The bottom is a plastic tub with the bottom cut off. It was then covered with silver wrapping paper (the cupcake liner) and hung in place with suspenders. The frosting was made by sewing scalloped pieces of quilt batting onto a men's 3X t-shirt and has sprinkles of colored straws decorating it. The cherry on top is a dollar store hat with a pipe cleaner stem. It was a hit in my school's Halloween parade!

Halloween ended after seven bags of candy were handed out and I was asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow!

Enjoy and THANKS for visiting!
