Tonight Harry POtter and Tom Brady will be in the house... we got a practice run at Spooky Zoo Sunday so I was able to grab a few pics of her practicing her spells!

Morticia Adams candy tin

another of my projects for Halloween... I did this for the final entry (even though Im expelled, Im still playing along) for the Bad Girls kits Top Designer contest... I love to alter things...
Made a little spooky treat container out of a thin wood box... covered it with mod podge, pattern papers, lots and lots of fun trims and inked it up pretty good! lol
I kept thinking of Morticia from Adams family as I was making this... can you see it in her house? lol
Happy Halloween!!!

and since its been awhile since I posted... I"ll be back later with a few more projects!

a week in my life

album is finished... what surprised me was how inspiring it was to gather, collect,photograph and jot notes all week... so many more page ideas from this... Loving the idea that no matter what goes on in our lives, we all have important stories to tell...
I chose my favorite color scheme of the moment... very us as a family too... kept my pictures in black and white for unity and my style of handwritten, jotted note style journaling, etc...
After completing it, I have gone back and wrote more stories from the week included in a envelope /memorabilia pocket...
Thanks to Ali Edwards for the inspiration for this... please check out her blog ( I have her blog linked in "my favorite blogs" section to the right) to see the many other examples of peoples weeks in their lives... so beautiful and so fun to see how different and yet very much the same we all are!
thanks for peeking
