Halloween is always my favorite holiday and the feeling doesn't ever seem to die (uh, sorry) over the years. You'd think I'd outgrow it, but I just don't. I love it too much. The house gets transformed, we dress up, and we make lots of fun foods. This year, Jamie had a small get-together with her friends for Halloween so we spent a lot of great mother/daughter time making goodies together.
Molded chocolates are easy and fun.
Decorated chocolate sugar cookies. We kept it simple with the designs this year.
Chubby witch fingers made from Pillsbury bread dough and plan whole almonds for fingernails.
We also made mummy dogs (hotdogs wrapped in bread dough), popcorn/candy corn balls, flatbread shapes with pizza dipping sauce, but I failed to get a photo of everything.
Jamie and her buds watched scary movies and played games. And ate, of course.
Meanwhile, Paul and I went to a Halloween party of our own. Just a couple of zombies in Halloween costumes. These M&M costumes got resurrected from the attic. We first wore them when Jamie was 3 years old and was a blue M&M, her favorite.
Getting into character.
Looking good, eh?
And of course, there were many Halloween crafts this year. I've posted most of them already, but these were some quick treat bags I made with the We R Memory Keepers Gift Bag Punch Board and Graphic 45's Rare Oddities papers.
Then Sunday came and it's November already. This Florida girl would never believe it if she didn't turn the calendar page. It's so warm here still and muggy! Icky.
It was a big clean-up job for Jamie from the Halloween party, but she did a fantastic job. Sunday morning was spent setting up for my afternoon Fall card class, which included moving most of the living room furniture out to the back porch. This is one of my most popular classes each Fall. I had a house full of ladies creating together and we had a great time.
Several of the cards involved veining and cupping leaves using Susan's Garden Tool Set and her lovely dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
Here's another look at the cards we made. I just love Graphic 45's Botanicabella collection, don't you?
Well, today I would've like to rest, but there's so much coming up, there simply is no time for that! I'm working on a fun journal spread that I can't wait to share with you in a very special Blog Hop this Friday, so stay tuned.
Thanks for stopping in today. Have a great week!
