Happy Halloween!

well, yesterday I had pink hair with pink spiders in it.  that was fun!   I dont know what I was "supposed to be".  I just told people that my hair was a pink spiders nest and that I had bugs in my hair!   I did my hair with pink hair chalk.  Im trying to decide if Im needing to do it again today.  Im not sure Im going out anywhere as I have a million teddy bear orders to work on. so probably really no need to go pink again today.  I could just throw the spiders back in.  I just painted the spiders and glued them onto hair clips.   they stayed in all day.

Then, I thought I needed a queen spider necklace to wear, so I needlefelted this one before I went to work yesterday.  but she needs a crown!  I may have to make her one this morning.  well see.  
Im feeling that I could very easily be convinced to go somewhere fun instead of working on bears... but Im going to try to stay focused!  lol!  
Torry pie is staying overnight tonight after he goes trick or treating.  So my evening will be totally unproductive in the bear department.  
This funny girl,  Betty bone Cracker, rode around in my car all day yesterday.   who knows how many people noticed her.  I did get a few comments.  like from my son who said,  did you really drive around with her in your car all day?   lol.. well yes I did..  is that so unusal?   lol!  ok.. so not everyone does stuff like that.  but I just think we gotta have fun when we can! 
Anyways..  I need to go eat something and then get busy on some bears..  so Have a great Halloween my little ghoulfriends! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

party teeth!

Jennifer, my friend Brenda and I spent the weekend in Ohio with my friend Kelly for her Halloween party.  We had such a good time.  I really didn't take a lot of pictures, but when I did, I mostly used my phone so they are not great quality at all. 
 Kelly knows how to throw a fun party..  its those little details that bring it all together...  you know, like fun rubber teeth for everyone!  OMGosh did we laugh!  or CAckle!  Im pretty sure I was screaming in laughter over this next picture....
 I about split a gut over this one.  seriously.   Kelly has fun friends and we had a great time and it went by way to fast! 
We had time for a trip to the world market before we came home and I found this awesome glasses that I just had to have!  And don't they look marvelous on Boney Betty? (I have three skellys and Ive never named the third one til just now). I also bought the cutest melamine Christmas dishes. 
Have to hurry off this morning..  after being gone all weekend.. the house needs my attention!
Happy MOnday!  its mammogram day for me..  such fun!
Happy Day my friends!

good morning!

MOrning Ghoulfriends!    Just messing around on the computer this morning.. wasting a bit of time that I should be sewing!  lol!    Heres afew pics of our porch this year.  I didn't decorate or even buy a pumpkin  for outside this year because they are still working outside.  the weather isn't cooperating .. which irritates me..    If my husband would have started in early summer instead of waiting.. like forever, it would be all done by now.   but Whatever..  just what.. ever!  (this topic does really sort of tick me off...  but I shall deal with it.. what other choice do I have?  lol!) 
So anyways, since he wasn't going to get to the inside of the porch for a bit still,  I decided to go ahead and decorate out there.. so boney and Bonita are hanging out, out there greeting anyone that stops or passes by! 

 Heres Bonita, kicked back on the porch swing.  Shes hanging out with her raven, 
Ive been a bit obsessed with the skellies this year.  I just think they are cute.  (but are they? )  well, whatever.. beauty is in the eye of the beholder!  lol!
So as I was looking at that picture of Boney with the flag behind him, he sort of reminded me of a politician.. so hows this?
Haha!  better they some of the knuckleheads and criminals that are running for president.
why not a bonehead!  lol!
ok.. no nasty comments on my political views  K?
love ya ghoulfriends! 
toodles for now!

pinterest and halloween fingernails!

  happy sunday!   Ive been waiting to be able to blog again so I could share this day with you!  a few weeks back we had a pinterest craft day.  Each of us had to choose a project from pinterest, buy all the stuff that we needed for each of us to make them and then teach the "class" for it.   We had such a great day and we played from about 1:00 in the afternoon until midnight!

I made a bunch of food..  mummy dogs, veggie pizza, fruit pizza, pumpkin pie and something else.. I cant remember..  and later that night we ordered a pizza.  or did we just talk about it...   yikes!  I cant remember!  LOL!   A few days prior to our craft day, I had Marla over and we made these Halloween kabobs.  they turned out so cute and Marla LOVED making them.  However, we didn't eat any of them and I threw them all away days later.  but they sure were cute!  lol!
 Bethany had us making these wreaths.  they were made out of pool noodles!  and they turned out so cute.  mine is the black one about.. which I still haven't finished!  maybe I will do that today!  They all turned out cute though.
 Vanessa had us making these really awesome "spell books".  we used old encyclopedias and glued things on the covers and then modge podged damp papertowels over them and then when they dried painted them black!  they really turned out cool.   Then Jens project was these cute little magnetic chalk boards. 
My project which I just realized was not off of pinterest..  was these little pumpkin and gourd folks!  The whole day was so much fun.  they only thing that could have made it better was if tiffany would have joined us, but she was not available that day and isn't really into Halloween.  
We are planning a Christmas craft day for sometime in November though. 
 so that was old news.. this is new news..  LooK at my cute Halloween fingernails!!
 I do believe I have been struck with a new obsession.  Its sort of like Crack.. you know you can get addicted to crack after one try..  well It may be the same for  Gel nail art!  My dear friend Brenda took me to get my nails done yesterday for my birthday!   OH my goodness!  what fun!  Im already planning the next trip!  lol!   and then Christmas and winter and valentines.. etc!    Ive been collecting pics on pinterest in my "If I had finger nails board"!    wanna see?  so many awesome ideas!
And so I shall leave you with this.. I have to admit, just because its funny.. that I just had a bit of a blonde moment. (ok.. white moment..) anyways.. I remembered that I could use my computer to take a pic of my oh so very cute finger nails! so there I was.. all posed with both hands up so I could see all ten fingers.. all ready to take the picture... and then.. I realized I had to use one of my hands to press the button... DUH!!!! so I cant show both hands.. but they're both the same anyways.    I like to make the little skellies talk!  LOL!
OK.. Im on call and have three unpleasant visits to make today  I should go get those out of my life so I can hopefully relax and work on bears the rest of the day. 
toodles ghoulfriends!

we are siamese if you please!

I haven't done as much Halloween crafting as in most years past.  but I did make these Siamese Siamese twins!  aren't they hysterical?  I got inspired one night by something I saw on pinterest and then could barely sleep that night because I had all these ideas rolling around in my head about how I might make them and  I couldn't wait to get up to get started!  I think I got up at 4:30 that morning!  lol!
I love how they turned out.  They crack me up.  so they keep me company now here, next to my computer.   my new favorite halloweenie
Ive been working on this Halloween kitty mat on and off for a couple weeks but keep getting side tracked with other things.  I really should finish it.  but for now I have to concentrate on bears.   I have a bunch of orders. 
I want to tell you about a craft day/night we had..  my daughters and one of my daughter in laws and I had a PInterest craft party one sunday a while back.  but I'll have to tell you and post pics in another post.  we made some really neat things that day!
Speaking of pinterest, Have you seen the stacking pumpkins with the mums in them?  Ive been dying to do them.  Nessa, Bethany and I made two stacks to put in front of their house this weekend. they turned out so cute.  Im really thinking I should make one for myself.  Ive been avoided doing anything outside because the house is being worked on and painted.
 I guess I can just live vicariously through them.  But they really are stinking cute and cheap to make!    And aren't my little pies stinking cute too?  lol!
They are all sooo precious!
and smart! 
(this pic stolen for tiffs facebook page!)
and beautiful!
OK.. I really need to go get ready for work.  Plus figgy and frannie are wanting their breakfast. 
I have gone through about a third of a box of Kleenex while sitting here this morning..   not impressed with how I might be feeling...    like Im getting a freaking cold.   oh well.. too much to do to have a cold.. working late the next two nights and then Im on call for the weekend and next week...   toodles for now my friends!

glad to be back!

finally back.  Well I don't even know where to begin.  Ive been busy.. but with all the same things that Ive always been busy with.. grandpies and family, crafting, decorating, working, playing..  
lets see.. I had a birthday a week or so ago and turned 29 again.  My family surprised me with a little surprise dinner party and they all pitched in and gave me this awesome new computer!  I just love them all so much.  I told them NOT to spend their money on me.. and of course, they did.   It was a pretty chaotic party at the restaurant.. but that's how my family rolls...  in a totally beautiful chaoticness!  It can not be helped.. there are a lot of us.. and we are always trying to fit in small areas!  lol!  anyways..   I am truly blessed and I thank God every single day for the people in my life.
I of course am all kinds of obsessed with Halloween.  You know I cant help myself.   this year I finally have some blowmolds!  I see some of my peeps on IG lighting up whole cities with their collections and I had to find some of my own!  lol!  I had one already.. the pumpkin on the cat.  then I mentioned to a friend at work that I was wanting to find some and the next day the little ghost was sitting in front of my office door!  sweet little thing!  (both my friend and the ghost!)  Then that same day I found 4 more on Craigs list!  and my awesome hubby drove down to Dansville and then out to Penfield to pick the the others up!  now I have the little crew in this picture... and yes.. I am feeling the urge to have more...  LOL!  just a little problem, I really don't have a great place to put them.  I would have put them on the porch, but I have not decorated the porch as the house is under construction and the porch has been being repaired.. 
well that's another crazy thing that is going on.  our house is over 100 years old.. and the porch was dropping in the front.  Tony managed to fix it with out having to tear it off and rebuild it.  I didn't want new windows or to have to pay for new windows.  he managed to save them all.  so that's being done and our neighbor is painting the house and my hubby will soon be putting a new roof on it as well..   lots of work. 
So what else?  all the pies are good..   did you know that we're expecting another one ?  I cant remember if that announcement was made before my computer died or after.   Any ways.. yuppers.. getting a new baby!  Rob and Tiffany are expecting in April!  we love us some babies round here!  lol!
So my son thinks that my Halloween decorating is a little extensive.  lol.   I think so too!  lol!  Im glad that I know some others who are just like me!
Tomorrow Im going to visit someone who is also a Halloween fanatic.. I'll ask if I can take pictures!
such fun!
have a great day my little blogger buds!
