Happy halloween!

So we are getting set for the big night! The whole family is coming over and we have a nice dinner then send the " men " out with the kids to Trick or Treat their little brains out!! Ashleigh ( my oldest) is having a friend joining us this year! She is getting big :(
I have the costumes, we have the candy, and are ready for the glass of wine the mommies get when the kids leave!! I think that is my fave part of Halloween. I am a Christmas girl can you tell?? I hope you all have a safe and delicious night! These goodies are from Michelle! Thanks for stopping by!

I love this house ...October Afternoon is the company and it is a really great set! Kathy has paper pieced it and I love the background paper it reminds me of a brocade fabric or even maybe a wallpaper (you know the kind that would be in the bathroom at your parents house when you grew up)....ya thats the one!! No I am kidding I really do love it! Thanks and have a great day....OOOHHH I have a few new stamps coming...I am hoping they arrive tomorrow!! I am ssssoooo excited!!

the right tools

You need the right tools for the job! You might have to say I love you or thanks for the help!! I love these tools they say so much and I find that they say thing that some ( men ) people might not be able to express!! I am missing the girls...they are still in Disneyland and I think today is the day that they get to go trick or treating in California land...I can't wait for the pictures!!!

Santa's belt

I really think that this card looks like Santa's belt! It was one of those cards that I really didn't know how it would turn out. I love it when it all comes together!!! The weather has changed here and it is getting chilly and wet! I love fall...the cozy sweater, the scarves, the changing colors on the trees!!

I wish I knew...

Soo there is a whole lot of things I wish I knew....I wish I knew what I will buy my Hubby for Christmas. I wish I knew what will happen in the TV show I am going to miss tomorrow night....ya I have no pvr....sad right? I guess I could list a few hundred things I want to know....but today there is only one thing I really need to know...and that is.... what the heck this saying.... says....I think it is Japanese? Ummm I think!!! I stamped it thinking it might say "thank you" or "happy birthday" but down deep I know it might say "I'm breaking up with you" or "I'm glad you slipped"!!! I guess we will never know. Have a "great day"....or.....maybe "whatever"!!
