It's a little hard to get an entire shot of it, but the idea is from The Crafting Chicks website: it's a neat place to visit but I recommend blocking off a bit of time to explore it all!
The Boo blocks are also something new this year.
I have seen variations in all sorts of blogs, and I believe the Crafting Chicks website has an example as well. I used a scrap piece of two by four lumber for those; scrapbook paper and wooden letters from Michaels.
I even managed to finish up my quilted Halloween table runner:
I started this one in February and it has been sitting around unfinished ever since. Getting it done the week before Halloween is better than the week after though right?!
Yesterday was a family affair in the making of gingerbread cookies. I love watching the kids decorate their cookies, and am especially pleased that all the spooky characters look so happy.
This last week I have also managed to complete an Hermione Granger and Super Mario costume. I tell you I'm on a roll! I think I should buy a lottery ticket :)
I am attributing all this energy to the woodland walks I have been taking.
It's chilly outside, but those changing leaves can't be beat.
This was my walking companion on Thursday: isn't he cute? I mean, if you could see his little face? I "borrowed" him from a friend. He is a five month old Westie and very curious!
