Crafty little witch.....
Ripstick Boy has been home sick for 2 days. (in fact, he is STILL sick, poor thing....nothing serious though so don't freak out....)
Anyhoo, he is NEVER sick but he has the whole high fever, chills, cough, runny (I mean, come ON) nose....his nose looked like your knees do after falling off your bike and landing on gravel.
I mean, REALLY! Talk about ground beef....yuck.
But, I digress.....
Since he was sick, he slept A LOT.
So I got to craft A LOT!
Yea! (is it bad to say 'yea' in a post where you just mentioned your son was home sick?)
So.......look what I did!
I finished up these little "skelepins"......... I crocheted the roses using a pattern I found here and then added the little decorated skeleton heads and pins to finish them off.
and here is how one looks on April
I made up a small batch of "Beetle Juice" for a Witches Cupboard I am creating....
I altered a teeny cigar box....
here is the inside...
Remember this post?
Well, I managed to add a 'finishing' touch to one of the little plaques...creepy, huh?
I won't pull out the Halloween decorations until the last weekend of September, but wanted to get some fall decorations up.
I put some flowers in the letter holder by the front door.
Mr. Crow looks mighty snug!
and I added some fall garland to the grapevine I keep around the front door......kind of funny to see the happy ferns still there.....but they are about 200 pounds each and I refuse to kill 'em off!
I'll add some 'fall' stuff to them later....
a close up of the garland......it is VERY pretty but hard to see at a distance.
Now, sweet readers don't forget about my little Halloween swap!
