Getting Ready for Holidays!!

   Fall is my favorite time of year just because of the weather and all the beautiful colors. I am not a fan of raking leaves, but I consider it good exercise.
Lotta pumpkin pies here....

  We had only 8 kids come to our door for Halloween. I was hoping for a few more, but I had plenty of trick or treat bags.
  I found this idea on Pinterest and thought it was so cute. I changed it a little because I liked the eyes attached to the back of the bags. I used the template the site provided for the cat face and just put orange paper inside the bag to make the face "glow".
Spooky, huh?

Very spooky.... ???
Hobby Lobby in Bangor , Maine


 I got these black bags at Big Al's in Wiscassett last year so I thought this would be a great way to use them.
 I am so excited to hear from a number of people that Hobby Lobby is coming to Auburn, Maine. This is much closer than the one in Bangor. I don't think it is going to open until after Christmas, though. However, I could be wrong.
  I am working with my sister, Rochelle, on a photo album for our friend, Sally. Sally wanted an album of our sister, Terri, who was her best friend.  Terri passed away in 2009.
  It has been hard at times, but working on this album has brought Terri closer to me again.
I would change the paper background, I think.
I could use this idea!




  I plan on starting my Christmas cards soon. I haven't chosen a design yet. Here are a few ideas that I would love to try and case.

Like this one cause it is simple..
  Anyway, I am going to be wicked busy with Christmas and all. I will try and post the Christmas card I make and some pics of the finished photo album.
 Have fun eating turkey!!
