Halloween Recap

So things were good, kids are happy with all of their loot and I'm sad because I've been eating it. I thought that I would share with you some of the Halloween crafties that I did this year. Since I often post what I think would be fun and you never get to see the finished project. I don't want you to think I'm a big poser.

Here are the pumpkins we carved my Big wanted the pirate skull, my Little didn't care and I decided to do the Boo to make things look a bit more balanced.

Here are the glittered bones that I blogged about making. I thought they turned out really cool but now looking at the photos it makes any sloppy finishing woefully obvious. Note to self, don't get sloppy as you get tired of gluing and glittering.

These bottles were made from Martha clip art on paper that I distressed with instant coffee. The bottles are for taper candles, I had seen some at a store and thought I could make those much cheaper myself.

i have a 25 dollar pumpkin sitting on my front porch that i never got to carving. sigh. And my 14 month old is just way too young for all the goodies she got. So much for my diet :)

Seleta - I know right? Woot woot!

Southern Daze - Thanks on behalf of my Big, he LOVED his pirate pumpkin.

Sara - I need to stop the madness myself. Those Milk Duds in the kid's treats have been calling my name.

You have my picture frame! The only problem is it cracked on the side. The place where I bought it closed down :( Do you happen to know where you got it, because I'd like another one!

Dolce - I hate to disappoint you but I got the frame at least 3 years ago. I got at it a silk plant store, they have fun accesories so I picked up a few frames. Sorry I can't be of more help.
