Winding down of October


Well, this month is winding down. Only one weekend left of October - and then the BIG day (Halloween) is on Monday. Bunches of last minuet crafts going on at my house!

Really, we don't decorate a bunch of Halloween. Fall, yes! Halloween? Not so much. I did have an idea of a project I wanted to try, so I ended up making this framed piece for my entryway. Really, it was simple to make, and could be made in less than an hour! For the vinyl words, I used my silhouette to cut them out. So simple. I then painted up the wooden frame, and distressed it with a finger nail file. (real high tech materials are being used here, folks!) Add a piece of pattern paper to the inside and then add the vinyl words to the glass font. Ta Da! You're done. There is a hook on the back of the frame, making it a cinch to hang on the wall or do as I will, and just prop it up on a table top!

In my last post, I had friends wanting to know if I was going to be using as a Gratitude Journal/Mini. Well, I am making my own using Studio Calico Memoir Papers. I have the covers done already & will be posting them tomorrow. My plan is to show you our book as we go along. For the most part I will not be making the pages ahead of time. Kinda flying by the seat of my pants! We are still undecided about doing a December Daily...but I do know we won't be using the Studio Calico/Ali Edwards kit. Yes, that I know for sure! My guess is that I will be using what I have and what I have purchased for Christmas this year. More on that to come, though!

I have also been cleaning out my studio, and have a big ole giveaway and a storage post planned for next week as well. Lots of good stuff to be giveaway, so stayed tuned.


And because I love my boys, and photo of them at the pumpkin patch! I will be linking this post up to the Paper Issues Blog - you should could link up any Halloween projects/layouts/cards you have! You just might get your blog featured over there for your great work!
