Happy Halloween!

This has been a very weird halloween experience. Never in my life have people broke it up into neighborhoods, but welcome to NC! Last night our town sponsored trick or treat, and tonight they did it in the neighborhoods! Anyway, here are the pictures we took last night!

This is the family taken courtesy of a complete stranger that just really thought our Bob the Builder was adorable! He really was cute!
This was Matthew before we left the house LOL! I told him Soldiers were serious and didn't this was him trying to have his serious face! hee hee hee. I think he looked bored! And probably tired of pictures, but he'll thank me someday :-)

We drive by this fire truck every time we go into Fuquay (it has a cool American flag in the front...wish I'd taken a picture), and everytime Zachary hollers "fire truck, fire truck"......we'll ask and you shall receive. The firemen let him in the truck.....he was scared at first, but then it was cool!

This was out at the Depot Square in Angier, the town including the Fire Department, Police Department, library and local business give out candy as a safe for kids trick or treat! Notice the cute little Bob the Builder costume.....thanks to my sister Maureen for making the awsome shirt (that she hand stamped because we couldn't find one), and hard hat with tool belt (tools included), and the great uniform for Matthew. He actually wears this pretty regularly!
These are my three musketeers: Nolan, Matthew, and Matt! They have been buds for a while now since they were all on the same basket ball team, and funny they all showed up at the same time - ha.....go figure. They had such a blast hanging they usually do.

What I've been up too!

My dear sister will not quit bugging me to update and post, and I have been very busy with some wonderful things happening in my life right now........I will go into that soon :-) But here are some of the projects that I have been making for the craft festivals and cards I have been demonstrating at shows. Enjoy!

The candles were actually so much easier than I thought they would be, and make sure wonderful gifts too. This will be one of the projects I will be doing at the Quick Christmas Gift in the begining of December, so watch for the email. You can RSVP now too if you would like :-) Just email me!

This is my Witching You.......I love the simplicity of this card and I only used our basic black ink pad, one stamp set and a punch. So much fun!!!!!!!!

This was so easy and so much fun...I used the designer series paper to do all the work. By the way..........keep an eye for that paper sale coming next month. You can make these too :P I am actually going to use this exact card for my Thanksgiving Invitations this year......who wants to come.........Yum FOOD!

And yes I always say my favorite, but what stamper would have just one favorite????? hello......that's why we are stampers right! LOL This is from our Merry and Bright set and I just absolutely do love it! It's great for cards, gift tags, and scrapbooks. Too easy!

Well have fun and keep watching for the next post!

Here they are! And Christmas is coming.....

Hello hello hello! I have missed you all so much! It has been one thing after another, but I guess it always is right! LOL Zachary was sick for a week with a fever.......then I got it......thought it was the same thing.......but I'm running 12 days now with a low grade. But it's dropping :) Here is what I've been up to! I know I said no more craft fairs..........but, I am making some wonderful contacts through these events! So I have been working on some different cards to sell! And getting ready for another one! hee hee hee!

Near and far follow his star! What a wonderful saying! I used Star Studded Season, from our Holiday Mini Collection.

These are from the Festive Favorites stamp set. I love this set. It has snowmen, and Christmas trees and reindeer all on one stamp and you can use them together or all three seperately too, and they come with coordinating tags. Too cute!

And who couldn't love Frosty! He's just too.......I guess perfect. I love this little guy. And using this whole window technique was just too much fun! Really opens the doors to some awsome ideas!

And who wouldn't love a simple kind word......Joy! Snow does make me think of joy, or should I say be joyful. Think of how giddy you feel when you see it start to snow, and how pretty the snowflakes are..........I think I just miss the weather up north LOL!
But this is what I've been up now I chanllenge you! What will you do for Christmas? Some of these cards will be included on my Christmas card classes as well so call me details!
