Still a few more things to do...

~~~~Yesterday I hosted a Halloween Crop party at my house, but do to the fires and some stomach virus floating around, only 1 person showed which was fine with me cause the day was mine to work on crafts regardless. We feasted on stouffers chicken enchalada, ruffles with salsa and dip and some delish' desserts she picked up from a gourmet bakery.
~ We watched "The Blair Witch", "Creep Show" and a little bit of "Signs" With the exception of creep show which is fun along with a few other movies of that nature that I own, I personally get a better thrill on the movies that freak out my mentality.
The "what if" factor.
~In blair witch, the tent scenes always get to me. As a former girl scout in my younger days, we camped, alot. And when you are sitting in your tent, having to pee so bad, debating whether to wake up a friend to go with you or brave it alone, it's then you start hearing those night noises of things walking around out side your tent. We camped alot locally but every year we went to Yosemeti.
~ One night I heard a strange noise right up against my tent flap. I woke up a friend and she said the noise was probally 1/2 imagination mixed with snoring from one of the dad's that came along on the trip. The next morning, Bear tracks were found around our tents!
I promise not to ramble any more cause I have alot to do until Halloween.
Here's my To Do list for today:
  1. Have Dyllan help make treats for his Pre-school class: stealing the rice crispie bar on a stick idea, will show pic's later. Done!
  2. Have Dyllan help make mini cards for friends Done!
  3. Prep for MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) Basically a support group for mommies where we have free babysitting, food, interesting speakers and great crafts taught by me!
  4. The craft I chose for this wed, is making a "mask". I have multi colored foam sheets, bag o colorful feathers, assorted rinestones and glitter glue. I'll make a demo to be tied around the head and a hand held mask held with a mini dowl. I'll have basic mask templates and let them do the rest. Teaching for such a large group (up to 50) in 30 minutes gives me alot of practice. Done!


If I get this done, which I should, then these are my other catch up stuff:

  1. 100th post treats
  2. 100th post winner crown, + one for me!
  3. Oct. blog winners
  4. demo's for my "Vintage Village Swap" that I'll be hosting soon and you don't want to miss out on!
  5. Christmas Post Card Swap
  6. Craft challenge of vintage women ( almost Done and should be #1)


  1. Drop Dyllan off at Pre-school
  2. jam over to the pumpkin patch for 2 med pumpkins, 1 for me to make into something special, and 1 for Dyllan to help carve.
  3. finish off on Mondays stuff.
  4. pick up Dyllan from pre-school, then lunch and give him a nap.
  5. bake brownies for ghost and some newbi frenkensteins.

Now off to leave some comments.



As much as I love Halloween, this blackness on my blog is so"over", I can't wait till the 1st when I can change it to a warm vintage Autumn look with maybe the "fall crown" as the banner!
