A very crafty weekend...

While Chris took the girls across the state over weekend to visit his parents, I was able to get my 10 Halloween ornaments completed for a swap I'm participating in.

I found the neatest wine bags at Michael's for $1 that I used to wrap each ornament. I don't want to spoil the surprise, but in addition to the sweet little witch graphic found here, lots of crepe paper, glue and glitter were involved.

As promised, I even made a few extra for give-aways!!
I've got lots of ideas and tutorials for Halloween crafts.
Be sure to look at my past entries
and be sure to check back often this fall.

PS. Several of you asked where I picked up the Martha Halloween special edition magazine.

I got my copy at Costco, but I've seen her at several chain grocery stores too. There are some new things in this issue, along with some recycled articles. My heart goes out to everyone that has suffered from hurricane Irene! Prayers to my east coast blogging friends.
XOXO

Kim I can't even wait to see what you made...all ten already. I tried 3 different versions this weekend and all were a dud. Off to the craft store today. Yours are amazing as usual. Thanks for the inspiration. Smiles...Renee

Thanks for the little peeks at your crafts. I know they're going to be amazing! And oooooo, I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of Martha's mag. She's the Queen of Halloween!

my girls have decided that back to school means - it must be halloween! Morning discussions to school have been about our costumes. Ideas change daily! :) Love the excitement!

I'm so jealous I wasn't able to participate in a Halloween swap I was invited to this year. I'm so backed up! School starts tomorrow for Mary and Wed. for Nic. Half the town is still out of power from the hurricane and getting around is like a maze because of all the blocked off roads and fallen trees. My head hurts!

Looks like the people receiving your swap are in for a treat!

Have a good week! ((hugs))

Yes, you are the Halloween Queen of crafts and decorating! Thanks for sharing with all of us who are Kim K. wannabes.

Are the girls back to school next week? I bet that Josie is ready to start her first official day!

Let's just pray that I don't go out of my mind with all this kitchen construction. It will really bother me on Friday when everything is gone and the dust is four inches thick.

I am already getting some Halloween party ideas myself, and purchasing some things on clearance for the girls mermaid tea next summer. I guess we both just like to party!

pre-Halloween hugs,
Cindy
