OK I Confess

I played hookie this weekend
and forgot to even do Monday Montage.
So besides going out on our dock for some relaxation,
cooking on the barbie every day,
I was able to get a few more goodies done for the store.
I said just a few. LOL
I bagged up my Halloween candy and added some candy corns too!
For those of you who asked how I thought about this...
well one day about two years ago,
I went Trick or Treating with my grand kids...
and I saw these in their bags.
From one of those candies, I drew out a pattern and forgot about it,
until I pulled out my many drawings this year.
(maybe I can do a tutorial on it soon)
Would you like that?
Next I drew up these witches.
I call them the Salem Sisters.
Bob calls them aliens.
I also made small pumpkins such as this blue Hubbard.
Then lastly I made this pumpkin on a stick.
Bob cut up a small branch from our kindling wood last year,
so I could make some Christmas trees on a stick....
but I never made them...maybe this year.
On another note,
today was the first day of school here in our neck of the woods.
Grandson Michael was ready.
So was my little kindergarten gal Mikayla.
She just had to pose for me.
(notice my messy slipcover on my couch)
They were wrestling earlier. LOL
before they got dressed.
If you noticed their outfits,
they go to a school which requires uniforms.
Well, that is what I did on my mini vacation.
Hopefully you all were able to play hookie at some point over the weekend too!
Prim School Hookie Blessings to all
(I actually did play hookie a few times in school)
Will have to do a post about that soon.
Take care everyone!

  4. Janice, everyone needs to play hookie now and again. I never got to do that in school because my mom worked where I went to grade school and my dad was a teacher in high school. LOL I would love a tutorial! I need all the help I can get. Love all of the things you made.
    The kids are darling. I love schools that require uniforms.
    Have a great week,
