Happy Halloween!

I had so much fun making this little house... did you see it in the mini? It's just $5.95 and is plain white heavy card stock so you can decorate it however you like, it's a bit like a gingerbread house (but you can't eat it!) I copied a design Brent showed at convention and sprayed mine black, stamped cobwebs onto vellum for behind the windows, punched out some bats to fly around the chimney and stamped a sign for over the door. Finally I spritzed the whole thing with some Smooch Spritz. Easy peasy! I put a battery operated tea-light inside and I was done. Callum wants to do a Christmas one now and I thought that would be fun to do together, and a good excuse to break out the glitter and fake snow, gotta love that!
Happy Halloween!

Eek - You're Sweet!

It's October and the weather has been just gorgeous around here... I love this time of year in Colorado - bright blue skies and amazing leaves. I'm loving it! And now I'm looking forward to Halloween! This week I held a class to make Halloween treats, I had so much fun prepping for this, we didn't celebrate Halloween growing up so I love to see all the kids dressing up and, of course, I love having an excuse to eat all that sweet stuff!

This week I had prepped everything for my Halloween class on Tuesday but I had an extended Christmas card making open house on Monday so I put the Halloween boxes in my office. However, when I went to bed I went into the office where the boys had been watching TV and found that they'd been snacking on the candy corn all night and there wasn't enough for my class! Ack! I had to run all over Bayfield looking for more and eventually I found some at the gas station - needless to say I bought it using THEIR pocket money ;-)

I had a couple of people who couldn't make the class on Tuesday so I'm holding it again this Monday, the 4th, at 7 p.m. Please let me know if you'd like to come along! More info. here

Have a great week, Brenda
