Halloween Project

Fall is almost here! I am soo excited. Fall is my second favorite season {next to summer} and whenever it gets close I start thinking about leaves and pumpkins and pie and spices. Halloween is my favorite holiday and I think most of that has to do with how fun my parents made Halloween for me and my brothers and sister. We loved trick-or-treating and my dad even sewed {yes my dad can sew!} these pumpkinny-orange colored heavy-duty trick-or-treat tote bags for all our candy collecting. My dad had quite a repertoire of costumes that he sewed for me over the years; Tinker Bell, a Mousketeer, a bunny and the the black cat costume I wore like 6 years in a row. Funny how my dad sewed everything, and my mom never did.

Above is a picture of some yummy papers and ribbons I got from the scrapbook store. I was there entirely too long, as usual. I am kind of making the decorations up as I go, but these papers and ribbons will turn into some lovely hanging decorations. We'll see how it goes!

You are so creative, I know the craft will be great. Can not wait to see the finished product! How fun that you read my blog. I love hearing from you. I just went through almost all of the favorites on Erika's site to see if I could find you. I am so glad I did. I am also glad that you did not name your blog something starting with a "Z". Finding you would have taken more than the 45 minnutes I just spent. It is hard not to hang out on a site once you are there. point would be, I am glad I found you.
