Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

Making Halloween Decorations is Fun

[step 1 supplies]

I have been working a lot on Halloween...one of my "fav" holidays...and this little "Graveyard Ghosts" decoration came out really cute.. :) I got the pattern over here... here are stages of my project...I couldn't find the right gloves until I went to the $1 store and there they were in the cosmetic department...who would of thought??? I used glitter glue to paint the bow ties and also acrylic florescent paint. The bats cut out of black foam was a little harder so I enlarged the pattern a wee bit and the base was a black ceramic dish from Michael's...worked out perfect with a little florescent paint.... [step 2 and 3 paint bottom and stuff gloves]
[step 4,5,6 paint gloves, cut out bats and moon and cardboard grave sign and gravestones, glue to pop sticks as shone and write on as shown]
[lastly put all together and into bottom as shown]

Then I worked on a prize for my groups party coming up on he 22nd...this clock turned out really nice, I still need to add a few more jewels and the title "Stitching Time" on it but I think it came out nice.. :) I have a whole bunch of these old 78s so I will for sure be making more of these....they make great presents....and they are not hard to make.....see it here

Then I made this cute spider...I twisted 2 pipe cleaners fo get the legs multi colored...used large and smaller fur balls, and google eyes...
