Halloween Trick or Treat

We went to our Halloween party last night and I dressed as Little House on the Praire, Bob was a dog and won the "ugliest" contest.. LOL he had the dog parts in all the right places as you can see... :)

There were quite a few good costumes ghosts, funny ones, and Sherry went as a character from Nightmare Before Christmas... ....

I made some candy for Halloween....the white one actually came out tighter, the orange yarn was a little too soft...I also made a cute Halloween bag for my daughter....

This is foxy's Halloween costume, she is a "Bee"...I am not too pleased in the style of the hat...but it works...she is not too happy with it either.. :) I finished my "Monster" Halloween guy, I think he is really cute...I made him a little different than the pattern, adding my own little touches..:)I got the pattern from, then I worked on the bride and groom Frankenstein from Vicky Howe and , I also completed the cutest Ghost "Boo" trio, designed by Beverly Mewhoter still have to add their eyes... ........along with my hat for my costume. I am going to be a "Little House on the Praire" mom....carrying a basket of flowers.. :) The dress is coming along too..... now I want to start making some Christmas decorations and presents...the Candy Corn bag, from Lion Brand, still needs to be felted, this is it before felting......and this little kitty candy basket I made last year.. :) Crochet Today has some great designs this month and I also have a "Holiday Door Hanger" book from Annies Attic that has some more designs I may make yet, Have you seen Lion Brands Halloween cuties, candy and lollipops...great ones for the table.. :) Plus Purple Kitty has a cute bag I would like to make and maybe make it with a Christmas design too????

Crafting Fun

Christmas is right around the corner and here are some wonderful gifts to make friends and family that can save you some $$$....

I was blog hopping and found this wonderful "instructable" site and it had a step by step instruction for making a pencil or change bag from any potato chip bag. How cute is that?

Then I found a wonderful paper bead "tutorial"

I also love tea bag folding...

This jewelry was made with plastic bags. Wow!! Now I can really get into this...

My Dachshund Doggy

I was in this swap for "Doghouse" in "All Around the House" over on Yahoo. And my partner. "M" has a Dachshund, so I thought I would design one for her. I just kind of designed it as I went along... I am so pleased at how cute it turned out that I think I may design other breeds as well... I used both felt and crochet....it even has eyelashes and a bell, with 2 charms that say "best" on one and "friend" on the other...details....Isn't it the cutest?
