The Spirt of Halloween

My favorite holiday to decorate for is halloween, not sure why though. Maybe it was because growing up halloween was always celebrated to the fullest. My mom decorated the house, dad helped make costumes, we as a family carved the pumpkins and rosted the seeds and my sisther and I trick or treated until we were way to old to be trick or treating. It's fun to dress up, get a crazy sugar high, carve pumpkins, roast seeds and decorate.

Most of my jewelry ends up in my jewelry box in a tangled mess at the bottom, which means I don't wear any of it. I always mean to, but when it comes down to it at 7:30 in the morning it is not a priority. In the attempts to organize and decorate my bedroom I made two simple racks.

They were very simple to make. And I am very happy with the way they turned out.
  • One 4' x 4" piece of wood, cut in half
  • Craft Paint
  • 14 nails
I wanted the racks to go with the theme of the room, "Starry Night". The white dots were created using the eraser end of a pencil. The rest is pretty self explanatory, but if you have questions please feel free to ask.

Working my Fingers to the Bone

Things have been insane at work. October 15th was a tough deadline with 150 returns to finish and get out the door. Which has meant this past week has been met with long hours and non-stop work. I got through it though, exhausting yes, but done with a smile non the less.

I was even able to relax a little at home and get some crocheting done. I am working on getting my inventory up for the annual High School craft bazaar.

I have definitely come to the conclusion, even though I love doing all different kinds of crafts my favorite by far is crochet.
