Yesterday I had the day to myself to do what ever I wanted.. It started out on the computer as it usually does, talking to my daughter Jen on facebook at about 7:30 am.. when we decided to go to breakfast! so off to Bob Evans we went and had a big ol' bunch of food! double blueberry pancakes, and a breakfast bowl of eggs, sausage, potatos, cheese and gravy!!! yes.. I ate pretty much all of it. well, Jen and I split the pancakes.. and I didnt eat the bisquits. anyways.. it was fuel for the rest of the day! lol!
So when I got home, I spent the the day in my craft room. I didnt do any house work.. and I didnt even make dinner. I had popcorn for supper and I dont think my husband even ate last night... (whoops.. ). I puttered and played and hung out in pinterest and had no interest in making dinner! lol! that happens alot around here...
(not making dinner...well, and hanging out on pinterest!)
Last year we had done round robin halloween books. Myself, Natalea Kandefor, Sandy Camarda and Elizabeth Andrus all did pages for each other's books.. but I never finished mine. so finally today I took the time and finished it. I also had started another very similar book last year that still had a few pages to do and it also needed its cover and back cover.. so I finished that too!
Both books turned out so neat. These pages with the scalloped edges are from the first book with the other girls and the cover for that book is the second picture above.
The other book doesnt have scalloped pages.
I love buying halloween papers and embellisnments.. And since I dont scrap book, this gives me the perfect opportunity to buy and use them!
It seems that it shouldnt have taken me all day to do these.. but it did. Im a slow crafter.. and Im a very unfocused person.. probably have ADD.. I have issues... but I them all done!
Then last night I made these little guys! I used Super sculpey, which I havent used in a long time. I would have used paper clay, because I like it better, but I didnt have the patience to let it dry.. and the sculpey can go right in the over for 15 minutes and then be ready to paint!
I love their little toothies!
OK...So... yesterday, I got looking around here.. well first, I have to tell you that on the way home from breakfast I stopped about bought 8 small pumpkins and a dozen gourds to put in my window boxes... I already have a bunch of big pumpkins out there.. but I convinced myself that I needed more to put in those window boxes...
then I started looking around my house, inside and outside .. and Ive come to the conclusion that I think I must be crazy. Most people dont do this.. My house is pretty much wall to wall halloween.... but its all so cute, but maybe its too much... Maybe I have some mental health issue.. sort of like a controlled hoarder... I am obsessed, not normal... I wonder if there is a name for this .. or, perhaps, Im just a creator and collector.. and maybe a little tiny bit eccentric..
what ever it is.. I do know that Im already dreading putting it all away in a month!!
I have no room for any more.. I have a small house! Oh well, I guess it is what it is and I am what I am!
and for right now, I really have to tear myself away from the computer and get out of my halloween induced stupor and go get ready for work.. toodles ghoulie pies!!
