Halloween Goodies

Happy Halloween! Sorry I have been missing, but I have been getting ready for a Holiday Bazaar I will be in that starts today.

Here's what I made for Gman's class & his treats that he gave out. Have a sweet & safe Halloween! hehe
I want my mummy!

Arrrgghhh! We have an INFESTATION!

Oh whew! Just bats, which I like because they eat mosquitoes!

I will be posting various Halloween costume pictures, as well as our Trick or Treating Ride from tonight. Be safe!

First Grade Teacher's Gift

Howdy, sorry we were hit by the sickie bug this weekend. Luckily it wasn't the flu, but Lgirl has a double ear infection & I get to enjoy a sinus infection. What a joy it is... NOT!

I am busy as a beaver this week & don't need this sickness wearing me down! I've got 3 fall parties this week (thought they'd be next week!!) AND I need to make some cupcakes & one child has fall break this week while the other has it next week. Isn't that a bit crazy?!

Here's what I made for Lgirl's Teacher for her birthday. Mrs. Lowe an AWESOME First Grade teacher & we love her to death! Hope you guys like it. I purchased the directions from Becky Roberts who lives in Idaho. Small world w/my parents living there and all!How AWESOME is this purse? It holds 6 cards w/their envelopes. I will post what a couple of the cards look like later this week. The front does open via a velcro closure. I used the retired riding hood red IN color from last year. I LOVE that color!

October is Flying By...

wow, this month is going by sooo quickly. Sorry I didn't get to post last week. It was Grandparent's week at Lgirl's school and I volunteered and ran around a lot last week. Not to mention I was a bit blue with all the rain!

Here's a gift I made my daughter's Kindergarten teacher from last year. She turned the big 5-0 this year so I filled the backpack with her favorite snack-Reese's peanut butter cups and made her this card. She loved it!
Hope you like it! I used the retired Riding Hood Red. I LOVE that color!

The Riley Rush!

Sorry I have been incognito, but I am trying to rush around & get my goods ready for Riley Days.... what is that you ask?

Well, every year, my town of Greenfield hosts the Riley Festival. It's in honor of James Whitcomb Riley and includes a 4 day craft and vendor show. I don't normally do craft shows that are more than one day because of my kiddos. But my girlfriend who makes Photo Quilts needs something to sell in the booth.

Long story short, she called me and now I'm madly dashing around lol. Getting my greeting cards ready and different sorts of crafts. The only bad thing about this show is it is outside so I must put everything in bags. Yes, it's as tedious as it sounds lol. Not to mention trying to make things look nice in plastic or cellophane! Yikes.

Soooo if you get a chance to come by Riley Days, please drop by and say Hi! We'll be on Main Street where Memories in Time used to be. I am planning on being there on and off the next 4 days. I will be volunteering at the Humane Society Booth from 11a-1p on Saturday so stop by if you are there! :)

Here's a card I made for a friend's Daughter who turned ONE last month. What a FUN age!

I better get back to the grind. Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend! Glad Fall is finally here! Woo hoo. I love this weather.
