Welcome Home & Halloween

Well, the week here @ mom's has been eventful. The water heater died on Saturday morning. The dogs chewed a hole in the leather couch. The plumber LOST the credit card number on some random piece of paper... I'm ready to go home to a "normal" and "calm" life!

BUT I was glad to have full access to the crafting room. This card I did over the last several days. I had a brilliant idea to use popcorn in a shaker card a few weeks ago, right after I ordered my The Greeting Farm stamps. I waited for them to get here, and then I forgot the popcorn kernels... Anyway, finally after two weeks of a good idea, I finally got to use it. I made this as a Welcome Home card for my parents. The usher's shaker stuff is Diamond Dust from Twinklets.

I also finally got inspired for Halloween costumes. A friend has five costumes for her little boy, and she only needs one! She said she has TWO lion costumes, so I asked T if she wan'ted to be a lion, and she's all for it. So a lion it is. And for H, I *could* do Tinkerbell (I've got the costume...) BUT I've had the same Tink costume on T for the last two Halloweens. SO I decided to make her a pirate instead! My inspiration came from these gals. I had originally planned to go straight skull/crossbones, but saw the glitter kitty one, and fell in love! The onesies came in a pack of five, so what is a gal to do but buy more decals to practice on! :) So Meg and I spent yesterday evening playing with the iron and onesies. Today I cut up the bandana (but may do another one, a litle bigger), and I'll get to the tutu after I get back home, I think. Anyway, the onesies are crafty (enough) so they're featured as well!

Super cute! I made a red & black tutu for my niece to dress up as a ladybug this year too!
