I got my hubby in the garage to set up my band saw and sander!
I wasted no time and made a couple of ghostly trick-or-treaters for a late-ish night craft party
Don't you just love them!?!
I made them up all by myself.
I actually have a couple other trick-or-treaters waiting to be made, so if I can get Lindsey and Mary B. back over here, we will get a few more painted.
Here is Lindsey's Ghostett :0)
She used a real brown bag to mod podge her trick-0r-treat bag.
Get a load of her socks! I want some for me too.
I covet Mary's ghost's socks.
I had to remind her that our legs actually got switched and those zig-zaggedy leggers are actually mine.
It got me nowhere.
Mary wins the prize because she went after the task of figuring out eyes and totally rocked it. I just sat there waiting for someone else to make the decision. I finally made eyes, the ran my finger through them and had to paint over them....eventually just glueing on googly eyes. So, round of applause for Mary's braveness...
for Mary's sugar cookie bars!!!
These guys were good...seriously GOOD!
I will be getting the recipe. It is probably something simple like...sugar cookie dough in a pan instead of shaped into cookies, but I am going to take detailed notes because I want to make mine JUST LIKE THESE! I may have to wait to make them until there are several people at my house though. Maybe then I won't eat every last one ;0)
Here is my little cutie. I think she needs a name. Hmmm...what goes with ghost? or maybe Boo? Boomhilda? Na, I will keep thinking.
My trick-or-treat bag.
Don't you just love the fuzzy laces???
Ahhhhh, it feels so good to finally craft again, the woodcraft way. Now to start thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas. Surely I can come up with something fun for both of those holidays, right?
