Happy Halloween!!

I know it is early, but we are getting a headstart on our Kiddie Hallowee party. I did my best to do a simple invite for the girls. I wanted them to be able to help me put these together (unattended) while I tend to the babies etc. So, I did all of the prep work one day between preschool drop off and pick up. A basic postcard invite. Then Madelyn did the glueing of the stamped circles on top of the black circles - it did not matter to me if they were not in the same place from piece to piece or card to card. She also glued the patterned paper to the chartreuse cardstock. I then had Gracie stamp things that go bump in the night in the bottom right hand corner.

Stamps: Batty for you (SU!) and Bump in the Night (
Cardstock and Paper: chartreuse and orangerie cardstock; Simply Spooky (TAC's wingincollection)
Ink: Palette inks: noir black, chartreuse, charcoal and orangerie

Ceramic Tile Magnents
These were something that Madelyn and I did together as out Geo-Caching trades. When you geo-cache and you take something form the Cache you much leave something. So, we took these 2x2 ceramic tiles and stamped images from the Very Punny SU stamp set. Once dry we painted the images with ceramic/glass paint. Then, once that was dry we put a sealer top coat over the tile. Madelyn placed the magnent on the back and bagged up the tiles. Each time comes with a business card of sorts with our geocache name etc on it along with a matching stamped image colored in Bic Mark It markers.
I also made a photo box of sorts to practice taking better photos along with editing. Here is the link that I found that helped me out:

One of my things to do was to post to this blog weekly - well I haven't done that yet since I started - so to keep this one going it is my goal to post 143 times in 1001 days - averages to be weekly but since I have fallen behind I will post extra times as I can. I have lots of projects to complete so I will have things to write about on here and share with you while I complete my list!
