had a little halloween crafty time...

kitty and candle
Good morning friends! Ive had a little time to play in my craft room over the past couple days.  (well, when I havent been at work..)  work definitely gets in the way of my creative play time.  but I have to tell you that is one of the reasons I get up so early.  Getting up at  5:00 am leaves me 3 1/2 hours in the morning to putter and play before I go to work.  I love that time!  hubby leaves at 5:00, so it is perfectly quiet and uninterupted time.   though this morning right after my husband left, someone knocked on my door.. scared the bejeebees out of me!  I thought it was my husband coming back and unable to get in because the door was locked so I just opened the door.  I should have turned the light on to check to see before I opened my door!  It was not my husband.  It was ok though,  it was just my son, stopping by before going hunting. but it shocked me when I opened the door and it wasnt tony!  people dont usually just knock on your door at 5 oclock something in the morning!   And we definitely shouldnt open the door with out checking to see who it is!  LOL!  silly me.

Tomorrow my friend comes!  looking forward to hanging out with her this weekend.  We're going to see this production of Les mis tomorrow night.  Click on les mis to see a preview of it.  This is from the lake plains players, a theatre group that my daughter is involved with.  Jen is in it, she plays an old whore! Yikes!  It looks like its going to be really good!

hmmmm.... trying to decide whether to dust and take down cobwebs... or just leave them as halloween decorations!  LOL!  In any case Ive got stuff to do so off I go!  but first I'll give myself 15 minutes of blog hopping.. not nearly enough time, but it'll do for now!
have a great thursday my friends!

Adorable decorations! Isn't it funny how much you can get done before and after work? I did it for 30 years! Now I am retired and can't get nearly as much done:) Love all of your craftiness! Have a blessed and creative day! HUGS!

Love your creations! I can't believe you get up so early - I am not a morning person and couldn't create anything if I did get up then. But work does get in the way and I really only craft on the weekends. Blah!
