Halloween Greetings


Good afternoon, my friends!

Just a couple of things to share with you today…I’m at the end of my Halloween creating for this year…can’t believe this is the weekend!

Got to put away my messes for a few days—we’re having a Halloween party for our girls and their friends on Friday night—time for Mom to stop playing in all the glitter!

Here’s a little card I made last night…


A cute little vintage image from Crafty Secrets’ “Halloween” Creative Scraps… “Hallowe’en Greetings”, it says…

Some fun Halloween colors tossed together, a bit of platinum Stickles for sparkle…some pumpkiny orange buttons, lace, rick-rack & pom-pom trim to finish it off…

What is it about rick-rack & pom-pom trim that makes me smile so much?


I don’t know…I just love them!

Next, a little crown for Viv’s Halloween Crown party…


THE last Halloween project on my table…so I used some bits and pieces left over from past projects…

A pumpkin girl from Elizabeth’s Halloween Garland Swap…

…stars from my Halloween chipboard album


…and lots of lovely images left in my Crafty Secrets’ “Halloween” Creative Scraps…all used up now!


Some tulle sprouting up at the top,


rick-rack on the bottom, some buttons and a bit of platinum Stickles glitz, and that’s it! 


Thanks for the fun, Viv!  Can’t wait to see everyone’s crowns!

And finally…a real scary bit of Halloween past… ready?


This is my brother Steve and I…Halloween night, 1970…just getting ready to head out for a night of Trick or Treating…

Steve is Superman, of course…and me?  I’m a geisha girl…well, obviously! 

A kimono and sash brought back from Japan by my Grandparents (so I felt really authentic!)…and the cherry on top…a long black braid fashioned from black tights with the legs braided together…


I hope your Halloween preparations are in full swing…have fun getting ready!

See you soon with something new…
