Playing Catch-Up

It's hard to believe my last post was almost 2 weeks ago! So today, I am playing catch-up. I have been creating...and I have a bit of a handicap today as I got into a fight with my cutter-bee scissors and my middle finger lost...don't ask.
Anyway, I have been making lots of goodies for the Fall Fest at Emerson Creek Pottery and my booth is on it's way to being spooktacular! Of course, I am making some everyday things too. Here's one of the cards that I mass produced for the event.

I am loving the PaperTrey Ink stamps on this card. I stamped the clouds and then the kite in black and colored it in with pencil. The papers are from a variety of vendors including October Afternoon, The Girls' Paperie, and GCD Studios.

And, in order to get my creative juices flowing and display ideas for my booth, I indulged a little and picked up this:
The women in this magazine have Ah-mazing spaces to create in. And frankly, it boggles my mind how organized they are because the magazine was in the middle of this:
In the spirit of Halloween, I think "EEK!!!" is appropriate. What is all that stuff? I will tell you. Believe it or not, there is a method to the madness!
Fabric coordinated and ready to be made into something really cool.
Fabulous seam binding that I got on Etsy from Prairie Bird Boutique and Bluebird Lane, ready to be attached to cards and other fun stuff.
More fabric samples...
Trust me...they will eventually look like this:
So, I decided to clean up my act. Which was a bummer because I was so ready to create. But, I couldn't find anything! So, I spent the next couple of hours...

Ah - much better. When your craft room is in the basement, and there are many a door and window, you get many uninvited guests. Also in the spirit of all things creepy and crawly, just ONE of the many I found:
He wasn't really that big, but that doesn't mean I like him any more. Yuck! But I hate to kill them because I think they do a lot of good. So, I released this guy and added "Spray around doors and windows with Spider repellent" to the Honey-Do list.
Ok - enough babble. Here's just a few of the Halloween greetings I've been working on for the Fall Fest.
The papers and embellishments on this one are mostly K & Company and I picked them up recently at Michael's.

(This one's for you Donna!)

And the papers here are from the Martha Stewart halloween stack that you can also find at Michael's.

Have a nice weekend. I'm off to the Flea Market today!
