I was going to give you a sneak peak at some of the fun Christmas projects we have been working on, but I thought we could take just a second to celebrate Halloween. We just finished some of our “treats” for Saturday and they are crazy cute!I I mean… scary!!

We wrapped Hershey bars in muslin and glued on eyes.

We also made bags of baby mummys. Whaaat?!?!

And some humongous black widow  spiders (bagged with white jelly bean “eggs”).

And of course we have bags of candy, appropriately labeled…

We have this great gothic Halloween panel with all of these sketchy labels. I just ironed fusible web to the wrong side, then fused them to card stock. How cool to get a bag of “Frog Eggs” and “Dragon Teeth”. Yummy!

We have a few more things to do, then we’re ready for Saturday…. Eeeeek!!

So…. we haven’t talked for forever. I’m sorry. It was a bad month, then turned into a busy summer, then I just fell out of the habit. I had a medical procedure, a few complications, a daughter’s wedding, a death in the family, a magazine article featuring the shop, a new location for the retreat house (selling one house, buying another, remodeling, decorating, all in a period of two months…), and this month, my husband hit a deer and totalled his pick up, then a week later cut off half of his thumb in an accident at work. So, good things, bad things, crazy things. I realize my life is never going to be calm, but I just couldn’t sit at the computer and fight with it. It still takes me so long on this dang thing. I’m too “old school”.

But it’s a new day. Time for a new commitment. TIme to get back to blogging. I have so many fun things to share.

I am SOOO busy right now making things for our Christmas Open House coming up (I know…. horrible to talk about Christmas already, but if you are crafty… you get me…) I thought you would like to see some of the things I have been working on.

I am going to take some quick pictures and give you a sneak peak, and this is my promise to you… I will stay in touch. I will get back in the habit of blogging at least once a week. Thank you for not giving up on me.
