I still pinch myself to have found this wonderful community of women who so generously inspire with their creativity. I have so enjoyed each and every blog that I have visited this Halloween season and have spent this day making the crafts that I have found...... with some rather funny results!
Has anyone checked to see if Vivian's shoes are pointy? Anyone who decorates this fabulously and colorfully and delightfully spooky just has to have a Witch Hat or two to be found.
And she has a gaggle of friends who know how to party black and orange. I love that Vivian and her friends will get together to make such Cute as Can Be decorations. "Oh my gosh!", I told myself. "If I can't join them, I can at least have an adorable spider or two of my own!"
Vivian's post should read, "Don't try this at home!" Yi yi yi, what travail I had crafting these cuties. Note to self, print an image of said cute spiders. After painting their heads ORANGE, I thought something did not look right.....several trips to the computer later.....they look like me! Even their legs, all six of them are straight!
A stop next to see Laurie's fabulous vintage Halloween collections in her beautiful home that seems to be THE PLACE for witches to gather,
had me thinking again that I could make the cute, fat black cat with his buckle belt. I did make an image this time .....
but something went terribly wrong in the glitter department. Martha Stewart, are you telling me that glitter called "Caraba Marble" is not the same glitter I usually use even thought it looks EXACTLY the same? My cat looks like he has the MANGE!
AND how did I miss that Laurie's cat is suppose to have arms!!! I made a mangy AND armless cat!
So how do you know when you have come to your Halloween crafting limit for the month? WHEN YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE EXPIRES!!!! Glue gun unplugged, Caraba Marble glitter set aside, a trip to Michael's for Christmas glitter can not be delayed a single moment!
AND THEN there was the "bird" behind the counter who would not look at me as she spoke words she utters hundreds of times a day. "Put my glasses on? Take them off? The line to the left? The line to the right? Do I want to donate my kidneys??? I CAN'T UNDERSTAND A WORD YOU ARE SAYING." (Diane's lovely bird).
And just ONE MORE THING my Dear Friends. I only needed one more little teeny tiny bow for my witch ornaments, and above you see how much red gingham ribbon I had left. BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS....
My last ribbon was made, Cute as Can Be ornaments on their way to Lynn. (please contact me with your address at firstname.lastname@example.org)
