Halloween Treat Bags...

...are now for sale in my Etsy shop!

How cute are these?

All you have to do is fill with goodies (I think candy corn would be dee-licious), and you have the perfect gift for a teacher, crossing guard, or a little someone! I found the tutorial for this 2-5-7-10 box here. They were so ridiculously easy to make! I am definitely adding these to my gift-box arsenal!

I stamped the sentiment in black and then accented it with a gold Gelly Roll pen. I used a cool Victorian edged pair of scissors to cut the flap, and then inked up the edge for contrast.

The hardest part was creating the embellishment for the front. Well, not so much hard, as time consuming. I added Gold stickles, and black glitter and Voila! Cute embellie!

In an Effort to De-Fur my Couch...

I whipped this bad boy up:

This giant fleece pillow is a doggie bed for our gal-pal Roxie. I got the fleece at joAnn's for a steal at just $5 a yard. I even tufted the giant pillow to make it look "fancy". She had to check it out...

Before accepting it as her new lounge area...

Anywho, I totally love how it turned out! And it only took a couple of hours to make! :)

Ok, so the upside is...

...I have managed to borrow a laptop from my Aunt while she is overseas for the next few weeks... And I have been crafty too... Soon I will have kinds of pictures of the craftyness I have been up to. Also, be sure to check out my Etsy shop in the coming days, as I will be uploading some Spooky Treats! :)

The wait for a new computer continues...

...money's tight, and life has been simpler without daily access to the internet. I have been able to get online here and there, but there just isn't the budget for any new electronics right now... :(
