They do the mash, it was the monster mash.

Man I have been an updating fool lately. It is all because of facebook. Instead of watching tv I am on this damn puter and to pass the time while waiting for my garden to grow or my food to cook or someone to rob/kill I create and or post blog msgs lol! I have many a scary movie to watch tho so this may have to wait.

On to the Halloween goodies that I said I would post. This one is a super easy and quick banner I made. Just newspaper and c.s. Great recycle project and it looks fab. Love it! (pay no attention to the ugo mantel and paint job...It is currently under construction lol!)

Then I made these other Halloween decos. I was so inspired by Tara Anderson yet again and made this Halloween door hanger.

It made the catwalk over on sis...Yay me!

I kept thinking I REALLY need to use up my Halloween stuff because I know if it sits here I wont use it next year. I decided to make anything and everything I could think of...Here are those things.

For you door knob.

I made an extra one for a special friend.

Just lil things to put on your mantel or shelf.

An atc.

A special Halloween page for scrapjacked.

I loved the girls photos on there so I decided I need a costume photo too. Hence the devil girl pics. I think they turned out pretty ok. My hubs sure liked them lol!

I have soooo much Halloween paper left. Time is running out. Once Halloween is over I am one of those ones who does not scrap it. Only 4 more days till Halloween!!!! Not even enough time to do what I should. Ah well.

Went to the pumpkin patch yesterday. So much fun! I will share pics soon. Oh and my OLW page made the favs. I am so totally bummed they are shutting down. Didn't see that one by a mile. Boowhoo!

I will be making time for the Girls Night Out crop on nov 13Th so if you can join me let me know! I would love to scrap with ya!


P.S. For those of you who care or believe...Pls keep our family in prayer. Husband is still without a job and Unemployment has run out. We are hoping for that 13 week extension to be passed. Thanks!

Pack the moon with coffin, eyes so crazy for the dead.

I went to see Paranormal Activity last night. I was sooo wanting this one to be super good...Nope! I mean in no way was it bad but it wasn't as scary as EVERYONE had hyped it to be. Oh well. I don't regret seeing it of course because you know me and horror I will watch ANYTHING and enjoy it. The best part was I was with hubby and we had a very nice date night. The worst part was all the freakin idiots who were in the theater. I hate when ppl talk thru the damn movie. Someone brought their baby! Who does that? I mean when I had like a 2 year old I didn't bring them to the theater unless it was a kid show and that was one time and I LEARNED my lesson. But to a adult movie? Come on! The movie had a few funny parts in it and a few "make ya jump" parts. Every girl in the theater screamed (except me of course)and some screamed even when something small happened. Light weights! LOL! Anyway my vent/review is over lol!

I was over on sis the other day and seen Tara Anderson is sponsoring a challenge. I really love vintage things as u may know and the challenge was to use vintage stuff. YAY! Not to mention the prize is sweet!

I want it ever so much. I HAD to make something special for it. I have been wanting to make a wall hanging out of a old book now for ohhh maybe 2 years but just never wanted to spend the cash on the old book. I finally broke down and got one just for this occasion. As I was rummaging through things I found some old photos. I wanted to take them all home with me but couldn't of course. I kept going back to one photo and holding it and wondering what his name was, who his family was and how THEY could ever give up such a precious photo. I was reeled in, had to take it home. I wondered to myself what I would do with it. I paid for my purchase and went on my merry way.

When I got to the crop (had a wonderful time with Kristi, cousin, and Beth)I was soooo not feeling any sorta creative juices sooo i stared at my book and all the vintage bits that I managed to shove in my bag at the last min. Nope. I decided to wait till I got home to figure that one out. I pulled out the photo and still my heart wouldn't let go. We all started talking about these photos and old books. One of the ladies that I crop with Cheri said she had a bunch of old books and she would bring them to me because she was just going to throw them out. YAY! She also told me she already threw away a bunch of old pictures because she didn't know who in her family they were....WHAT??? I know you cant hold on to EVERYTHING but I don't have any cool old pics and if I did I would surely hold on to them. But we are all different.

Anyway I did work on the little project at home and I kept wondering what I was going to do with the little pic...As i started to make the wall hanging it slowly turned into a scrapbook about the pics that I will soon rescue and the one I had already.

Wonderful! I just love the idea and I love that now my little boy has a home.

I also love the fact that the book came with a big DISCARD stamped on the front page. I just had to add my little 2 cents to it.

As for the books, Cheri brought me 3 of them and they are sooooo wonderful. When I seen them my heart skipped a beat. No joke! I LOVE vintage stuff and these are to die for.

Don't you agree?!? She is a wonderful lady and I so thank her for these! She says she will bring me more she just has to go through them. She has boxes. eeekk!

Ok so I know I said I would post my Halloween stuff but this post is long so I will do that in a few days. I am sure most of you have seen most of it but there is a few things I haven't posted on the boards yet that I will post here first. Gotta give something fresh on here right? LOL! Happy fall my lovelies!

I have no wallet, I keep my cards together with a blue rubberband.

I guess yesterday the craft bug finally crawled up my butt because I have been creating and haven't stopped. I made a TON of Halloween stuff. I will share those soon. I wanted to make sure I got this one posted on time for once. I have played the last 3 times and each time I forget to post my creation. Boy I made this one just by the hair of my chiny chin chin.

Used the new sass for this. Man is that the best co ever? I think so.

And this one I just made because I was trying to use my new stuff from

My hubby was making her let me take the pic of her. Playing of course.

Cropin tmw with my cousin, Kristi and Beth. Should be a great time. There is a few spots left if anyone wants to join us. I really need to get what I am going to work on ready because if I dont I will sit there and talk the whole time and not do a damn thing.

Ohhh my kittens are getting so big. Anyone want one? Come on they are soooo cute. See...

Hehehe. Those little buggers are quick so it was hard to get a good pic of them. This one is mine and his name is either Charlie or Edward. I have 2 girl kitties named Bella and Lola. So both those names go with them lol. Kittens kittens everywhere!

On the cooking front hubs and I made a most delish stew. We used gravey packs to make it a nice thick one. MMMMMMMMM! Then my daughter Aria and I made Halloween Cinamon rolls.

She enjoyed herself.

Then we watched Hocus Pocus and It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. Man I love those movies. Sadly I havent seen any new scary movies as of yet T but I will be sure to report them when I do. T is my scary movie buddy.

We had a wonderful storm here the other day. Now it is gone and I am left with sun and warm weather yet again. BOOOO! LOL! It would be nice if it was at least 60 ish outside. Not 80! Oh well. Since there are many many pudles I decided it's time to pack in the flip flops and bust out the polka dotted Vans. Ahhh yes fall is here.

Last but not least over the weekend Beth did this wicked cool ZombieLand app on facebook and I HAD to copy her. Hehehehe I love it! Thanks Beth!

Next friday pumpkin patch! YAY! Halloween is fast approaching.

I can't seem to face up to the facts.

I have a few things I need to share. I will be cropping over here at my LSS on Friday the 16TH. She is having a crop till you drop on that Friday and Saturday. I can't make sat because it is my sisters bridal shower but I will be closing the place on Friday. Who wants to come and crop with me? No one? Aww come on lol!

The other thing is I have a class on Oct. 25TH (Home) it is 15.00 and everything is included except glue and cutting tools. Here is the example. It is called a triptych.

It makes a great christmas gift. Of course what says I love you more then a handmade gift anyway?! If you want to sign up let me know or if you want a kit let me know too. I can work something out for ya.

One more class I have in store. We are making 4 pages with the monstrosity line. Here they are.

20.00 on Nov 8th.
We didnt go to the pumpkin patch but we do have tickets and will be going soon. Can't wait. I am hoping to try the zip line. EEEKKK! Love it!

I ♥ this time of year soooo much. I mean I think I say that to you all every year but seriously I love horror movies and this is like a dream month for me. So far I have watched ZombieLand-freakin awesome! Loved every min of it. Trick R Treat-pretty good I wasnt expecting it to be as good as it was. Last but not least The Hills Run Red- again another that I thought was gonna be cheese but I was suprised. If you are a horror movie fan I suggest you check them all out. If you are not but like horror/humor then you def must go see ZombieLand.

I would have seen more things but I have become like the countless million and became addicted to Facebook. I know most of you are saying where have u been? I just didnt want to give into the status quo but I eventually did and I wish I woulda done it earlier lol! I am more addicted to the games then anything. BLAH!

So no scrappyness to share really. I mean since facebook I havent done a damn thing. You would think between waiting for stuff to cook on cafeworld and killing people on mafia wars I would get something done...NOPE! A whole lot of nothing.

Yesterday was my mama's bday. Happy bday mama. The kids made a birthday song video for her. I was still in my jammies and had no makeup on so I wont share it with ya. LOL!

I am starting a accountability post on facebook. We are gonna have to account for our food for the day and share it with others who are on the post. If you want to get in on this let me know. I know I want to lose about 10 pounds more and or at least keep off what I have lost. I think this will help out a lot.

Off with your head!

Well last weekend I went and did some scrapping with a new group of ladies at my LSS. It was all for scrap Pink weekend and I had a pretty nice time. I did however miss my scrappin buddy. Scrappin just aint the same without her (my cousin). I did get a few things done. I mostly just stared at my table and shuffled stuff around. I did organize my bag nicely. I soon messed it up when i got home tho. Anyway here are some of those pages.

My mess I made.

Some of the great ladies I met there.

Sweet ladies cheri and Maria.

These two had me laughing the whole time. They have been friends for a very long time and they were so funny to watch. Debbie and Mary Lou.

And finally I cleanned up my mess good. Hehehe!

Dont forget to check yourself and tell the ones you love the same thing. Also pray for those who have had or have cancer. Everyone could use a little prayer.

This friday we are off to Delosso farms here in lathrop. Love the pumpkin patch. Thanks grandma (mom) for the tickets!
