Happy Halloween!! Very late indeed!
Between chasing my 4 month old Boxer puppy, designing and getting supplies for 150 handmade Christmas cards, work and daily life … I’ve lost track of time! A HUGE surprise to me … I seem to have gotten my card making mojo back and in the past week I’ve designed and made 4 cards, 20 Halloween cards, decorated my front porch for fall (which hasn’t been done since I moved to this house 8 years ago) and gotten some handmade Christmas presents in mind. It’s a big thing for me as I had kind of lost the heart to make cards for a while. I think it came from my hobby becoming a “job” for a while and I lost the desire to make new things…BUT it seems to be back and in a big way too!! So I put together a bunch of wickedly cute Halloween cards for friends and family and I want to share one with you even though it’s much too late. Inside the card there was a tag that said … “it appears the witch is back in town”. Everyone enjoyed them which is all that matters. I also want to show you one of the most incredible peacock costumes you will ever see. My friend, Pearlene, who is also a nurse at my Rehabilitation Center, made the costume herself for our annual community party. I had thought I was going to make a peacock costume as well but ended up doing something much simpler this year…. the first time in a many. Had we only talked to one another about our ideas we could have been a “pair of peacocks”!! We’ve decided next year we plan together – us two crafty women! Enjoy the photos and watch out! There are some very crafty adventures ahead.
