Halloween fun

Had a fun creepy dinner with Grandma and Grandpa tonight, here's one of the dishes we served!  It was soooo GROSS!
It's suppose to be brain and chopped up heart pieces.  How do you make this you ask?  It is a head of cauliflower lightly steamed and two cans of whole beets chopped up, make sure and keep the beet juice in the can so that you can pour over the cauliflower for creepiness!  Hope you had a fun and spooky Halloween!

My two Ghoulies!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!  have a "ghoulish" day everyone! xoxo

Doillie Decorated Pumpkin

Good Morning!  I haven't had much time for stamping the last few days,  spending time getting ready for Halloween!  I thought I would post a fun pumpkin decor project you can try.  It just requires a pumpkin, (you could use a white pumpkin as well).   Take a doillie and cut around the top of it so that it fits over your pumpkin, now take black spray paint OR you can use a sponge brush and black acrylic paint, and paint the lace design around the pumpkin!  Isn't this just a beauty!  Halloween is almost here!  hope you all are having a fun weekend with family time, parties or just eating a bunch of chocolate!  (yes,  I'm guilty!)

Test Tube Spooky Bingo Bits

Getting some last minute treats made for school and family Halloween party this weekend.  I found these Test Tube candy at the Dollar Tree.  You get 12 in the package!  great dealio I think!  They are filled with the pixi stick type powder.  Anywho,  I used the Spooky Bingo Bits stamp set and those lovely scary spiders I got a few weeks back.  I had to use them up,  I think there were a 100 in the package!   I love how creepy they look!  too real actually.  Have a fun weekend preparing for Halloween or any parties you may be attending and be safe!  Muahaaaaaaaaa!

Rat Eyeballs, Spider Legs and Ghost Poop

Yep,  you read that right!  Aren't these just the cutest!  I saw these out there in blogland and thought I would give them a try.   I used My Design Studio to make the words, but you can easily make them on Mircosoft Word.  I used a heavy white cardstock measured at 4 x 4 to fit the cello bags.   Inside the bags are Pretzel sticks for the spider legs,  red hots for rat eyeballs and mini marshmellows for the ghost poop.  I purhcased some plastic spiders and used the spider web stamp from the Stampin Up! "Wiicked Cool" set and stamp it in the corner of the header.   How cute and easy are these!  I think I made about 50 to take for the Teacher's for Halloween.

Spiders, Spiders, everywhere!

Okay,  so I am such a jokester that I had to do this to my poor family.   I have freaked out everyone all day long!  It is not a suprise that I love Halloween, and with that said I was at the Dollar Tree this morning and found this vinyl cling for your toilet!
Yes,  I know,  like you all want to look at my commode, but I tell you this looks sooooo real!   As you can see!  the cling goes right on TOP of the lid, but sure looks like it is open with creepy crawlers coming right out of the toilet!  I also added some little
spiders that come with it to the sides.   I'm tellin you, the best dollar ever spent!  I am lovin' it!   Muaaaahhhhhh!

Vintage Witch Hat

    So I was cleaning closets and found this very old sage green cone that held some potpouri.  I threw it aside for trash looked back at it and realized it looked like a witches hat!  I went to town with some black spray paint, and started decorating it.  Here's what I came up with.......

As you can see I have used quite a bit of Stampin Up! product.  The shiloute pin I purchased for a dollar at a wholesale outlet local to me.  Since I know many of you do not have the cones I thought I would try and come up with a papercraft way for you to make this!  Here it is complete with a Halloween card.....
