A Halloween Postcard: Quick & Easy!

Hello friends! In case anyone is wondering I am happy to report that I finished the parent/student cross country race yesterday. I was really hoping there would be some out of shape parents in the race instead of all of the fit military dads joining in. There were only a few moms in the race, what’s up with that? I didn’t overdo it, I jogged/speed-walked with another mom and we had a grand time gabbing and catching up as we navigated the course. I figured there was no point overdoing it and being sore for a week…I wasn’t “in it to win it” as they say but it does give you a respect for the kids who run this every day. My daughters ran the race too (and did far better than their old lady) so I think I will have 3 runners in the family next season when they are old enough to join the team. OK, today I have a quick Halloween postcard for you, this can also be adapted to make a 1 layer card or tag. I used stamps from About Art Accents and if you have not entered the prize draw on last Fridays post be sure you do so you have a chance to win some of their stamps!

I filmed 3 videos yesterday and I have to say it was quantity over quality, really I think I was a bit off my game because I was nervous about the race. With that in mind here is the video:

Remember you can use my coupon code: Lindsay10% whenever you shop at About Art Accents, I think you put it in the paypal comment box and they refund the savings. That’s it for me today, I still have to walk the dog (she does not understand that I did a race last night so I am all set with exercise today LOL!) and get ready to film this weeks Ask-a-Crafter episode with Lorraine. I guess I better get cracking! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Paintin’ Pumpkins!

Last week the local cub scouts had a pumpkin sale and they asked if I would paint a few pumpkins for the sale, here is what I came up with:

It was really fun, I think I will paint some with the kids too. Wanna try? Here are some tips:

  • Wipe the pumpkins with a damp cloth before you begin and bring them inside and let them warm to room temp before painting, make sure they are dry.
  • Use acrylic paint. It is permanent, wear a smock:) Also cover your table with newspaper before you begin.
  • Have fun, it’s only a pumpkin, anything goes!

The best part is that they will last longer than a carved pumpkin so you can paint it now and keep it around til Halloween (as long as a squirrel doesn’t get to it!)

I’m going to go out on a limb and enter this into some craft challenges: Challenge up your life (farm), Creative card crew and cutie Sunday , paper sundaes (fall), Delightful Sketches (pumpkins),

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
