Happy "Early" Halloween

Hello my friends, I am so proud of myself. I actually finished something early and not midnight the night before. It's that time of year again when I prepare goodie bags for my staff and the school staff  on the campus where I work. I am always looking for something different that I haven't done before. I found some really cute Halloween stamps in the dollar bin at Michael's. These were too simple, but that's what I needed. I think they turned out really cute. One stamp, circle punch, scallop punch, pop dot it up on some orange paper. Tape that to a piece of green paper folded in half and stapled to the top of the bags fill with trail mix. There ya go. Oh yeah a few doodle lines and some liquid glass on the eyes.
The pretzel bags I bought a long time ago. I was going to make chocolate covered pretzels, but that would mean I would have to go into the kitchen. Not my thing, haha, maybe someday. So I chose to fill them with trail mix. Here are some pictures of them I think they are cute. Simple but cute. Well there you have it, Happy Halloween everyone, God bless and be safe.

Hello, Hello...

Is anyone out there? I have been trying to post for a couple of weeks but just can't get the computers I am on at the time to work with our blog. I told myself tonight no matter what I was going to post something. So here I am. I have been in a crafting slump as of late. Becky and I went to the scrapbook expo in Ontario last Friday. I haven't had a planned day off from work in over two years, I felt like I was playing hooky. I did have to go in for an hour and a half, but then off we went. We had so much fun time. We usually attend these things on Saturday and the crowds make it sort of hard to get around and see everything. But Friday was so nice, we were able to leisurely just walk around and see  most everything. I think we got lost and turned around just like always but it was still a lot of fun. We were able to take a class and learn some new things. We saw Elena from Charity Wings and talked to her about some of her new endeavors. One was an Art Center she is trying to find a "home" for. We were very excited to hear this. It was so nice to see her again.
I made my hubby an anniversary card tonight. We are celebrating 36 years tomorrow. But since he works third shift and I work afternoons we won't be able to do anything tomorrow. So this weekend we are leaving town to spend some quiet time together. Things get crazy around here sometimes. Here is picture of the card. I found the stamped image in a box where I keep my Valentine stamps. It was perfect, it says "I'm nuts for you". We are all a little nutty around here. Have a great rest of the week and God Bless.
