A Pumpkin &Treats

 Hi friends,
this is a fun,festive and easy project that makes a cute centerpiece for your Halloween treat table, and the kids can do it!
Kasen did one for his show & teach at school.

                                             You need a pumpkin...

                 A sharpie, or if you want to get fancy some craft paint.

                                            A toothpick or two...


Draw or paint a face on your pumpkin, then pre-poke holes with your toothpick, then insert your suckers, and wallah.... a JOL with Sucker hair!

Just 2 more days until HALLOWEEN!!!! YAY!

Have a fantastic day ;)

Mr. Skelly

Happy Saturday friends!
Are you all getting ready for Halloween night?
I cant believe how fast it has snuck up on us! My grand kids dad, picked them up last night for a Halloween carnival at Kasen's school. I forgot how much fun it was getting kids ready for Halloween, and just to think that I get to do it again this Wednesday. YAY!!!

Do you dress up for Halloween?

A Ghost, Goblin or Witch? Maybe a Skeleton, perhaps?

Or, do you have your own Halloween party?
With spooky Halloween decor, and temptacious sweets and treats galore?
I love Halloween parties! We like to have one every year. More like an open house on Halloween night, with plenty of food and fun.
We missed last year, but this year we are planning on having a little something.
Mr. Skelly said he may be late to the party as he's all tied up over on Ebay
in fact, he said he may be headed to another party???
 If you would like Mr. Skelly to join your party, then just simply click here.
and to get ready for Christmas?
I have some Santa ornaments just listed
on ebay, with FREE shipping!
Hope you all have a Happy weekend!

Snowmen & Dominos

Good Sunday Morning to all :)
And what a beautiful one it is here in Northern Utah. I have another creation to share...

About a month ago, Alan and I went to a swap meet with my Brother and Sis-in-law. I was so excited when I came upon a box of old domino's, and I was even more excited when the fella told me the price of $ 3.00 I believe there (were) is 96 super nice domino's in that box.

I've seen many artists and crafters make them into some really, really cute artsy pendants.
 What I really wanted to do with them was to create sets of 3 ornaments and sell them for a low, low price on Ebay.
Yesterday, I listed 2 sets and they were gone within 5 minutes of listing them.( That was the fastest sale in my whole life of selling on ebay ).

This set is what I have listed now on ebay. It is a buy-it-now for the low price of  $ 8.00 with FREE shipping.
They also make a great little extra to attach to your Christmas gifts.

Thanks so much for your visit ;)

Now that's A perfectly magical day!

Good morning lovely friends!

Like so many of you, I keep an inspiration (or 2,3,4 ?) board on Pinterest. My Autumn board is my favorite, and I thought it would be nice to...


take a little walk, within a magical season of color and beauty...

maybe pick up a pumpkin or two along the way..

remember what it was like, to jump into a big pile of leaves?
Come on, jump in with me!

and after all that play, return to your warm and cozy nest..

maybe snack on a ooey gooey, delicious caramel apple, or two...

or get covered in punkin' guts, to make the perfect pumpkin pie.

Now that's a perfectly magical day!

Thank you friends, for a wonderful walk on this magical day.

A Little Inspiration

While taking a walk with my daughter and grand kids one cozy Autumn evening, I noticed beautimus pieces of driftwood scattered here and there.
I  enjoy looking at all the curious shapes and sizes, but this small piece of old wood surely screamed Santa!!!

So, whats a creative girl to do? I surely couldn't pass up this moment of inspiration, so I scooped up the little piece of wood and tossed it into my bag.

A few bits of clay, a little paint and wallah!!!! It's Santa Claus :)
I love those beautiful and inspiring walks :)

This driftwood Santa is listed on Ebay with a low starting bid of .99 cents.
if interested you can visit eBay here

thanks for stopping by today, I hope your day is great!
