So I am a big fan of Halloween.
It’s always a huge stress to get all the costumes together, and somehow juggle all the fall carnivals, parties, trunk or treat events and colton’s birthday into everyday life. that is what this weekend was all about. Friday night cory had a Halloween party… then sat. morning I taught a clock class at scrapbooks etc… eric took quincy to daddy daughter campout over night… and when we all got home, we had to decorate the car, make chili for the cook-off and get all of us in serious make up and costume, complete with tattoos and fake eye-lashes, which incidentally is my FAVORITE part of Halloween (false eye-lashes). By the time we got to the party, we are all sweating our make up off, and I managed to spill a bunch of chili on the floor of the car- and well- that didn’t exactly add to the party-spirit! (sigh-will I NEVER learn to put a towel under ANY food I transport in the vehicle????????? can you tell this is a sore spot in our marriage?) well, despite the chaotic beginning, the kids has a great time. and, eric and I did as well. we love the excuse to dress up! that wig of mine has now been through a few costumes! lol. The stress translated in less than fantastic photos, but at least we have some documentation of the effort. We will have to get dressed up again on Tuesday, so I will need to make more of an effort in the photography department…
Here is a little peek at the clock face that I did as another example of what you can do on the inside of a clock…I have so much fun with these! I have been needing a good excuse to use this cutie basic grey paper. if you need an awesome Christmas gift idea, try a clock! (this is all that would fit on my scanner…)
I have to send a BIG thanks out to my little sister Katie, who is currently in Tokyo with her husband… they went over to represent me at the first every CKU in JapaN! Sounds like everything went great, and she has had a great time touring around with Ali Edwards, Anita Oldham, Rusty Pickle Lance and Tracy White…sounds like I am missing quite an adventure! Thanks Clark and Katie!! You guys are the best!
And while I am sending out thank you’s….i can’t thank you all enough for the sweet comments and emails that I have rec’d in reference to my last blog post. I think it further reinforces the similarities between all of us!
I am looking forward to my Monday morning! I am going to write a week’s worth of to-do’s and goals… and hope for a wildly productive and happy week! Gasp… this week begins NOVEMBER! yikes
