here comes Halloween

Well, here we are on the eve of Halloween,
and I have yet to share my decorations.

In a few days, they will be replaced with white pumpkins
until the Christmas tree goes up.

Is it just me, or are all of the holidays coming and going so fast,
they are all just a blur?

My photos are a little dark since it's been appropriately gloomy out.

This cute skeleton couple is my favorite find of the season.

Even Violet Ann got in on the fun!

Hubby and I will be handing out candy to all the trick or treaters,
and stuffing a sufficient amount of chocolate into ourselves.

Hope you have as much fun with the holiday!



in my Room

just hanging out in my room today,

playing in my journal,

playing in paints,

making messes, and having fun

hope you're having fun too!


halloween Swapping

For the first time in years, I'm so stinkin' excited about Halloween.
So, I've been playing in lots of spooky time swaps with MAMA.

Halloween Embellishments
(create at least 8 Halloween themed embellishments for our partner)

Halloween Altered Tin

Halloween Sushi Antoinette ATC's

Coffin of Goodies
(I hosted this swap)

A Tombstone Trilogy
(I hosted this one too. We created one tombstone for each of our three partners.)

Halloween Charlotte Doll Contest
I even made a little Charlotte witch doll to enter in the MAMA contest.

Are you a Halloween person?

If so, what fun things have you been doing?


a sweet pink Swap

I participated in a sweet little swap hosted by

Each month, participants create and send one card, one tag,
and something from their supply stash, using
the theme and color of the month.

October is pink! And the theme is Friendship.

Here are the sweet goodies I received from Deb

I love, love the card she created!
How did she know I'm a huge Mary Engelbreit fan?!!

I love the sweet little vintage girl on the tag.

And I'm just tickled pink with all these sweet goodies
for my scrapbooking and art journaling.

Thank you Deb for everything!

These are the goodies I made and sent to Jill.

This was a sweet little swap, thanks for hosting Linda!

If you are interested in participating in the November swap,
sign ups start today, October 1 thru October 5th,
or until there are 25 participants.

Pop on over to Linda's blog and check it out.

Have a great week everyone!
