We saw this cute pumpkin bat someone had made in the gallery and HAD to try it. Here is what we did.
YOu take a average sized pumpkin. Paint it black. I used making memories black paint.
I cut the wings out of cardboard and Bella and I painted both sides. After it dried completely I went around the edges with a white paint pen. we took shish KA bob skewers and used that to attach the wings. Painted him a silly face. I uded a circle punch for his eyes.
THere is the Finished BOO the Bat Pumpkin. (NO we didnt carve him and take out the insides first a few of you have asked)
Bella was worried about him getting cold out on the front porch haha. But so far he has been fine.
We don’t do alot for Halloween, But I wanted to do something fun for Bella. She has had such a hard time. She is going through the 4 year old scared of everything stage. I told her we would give out fun little coloring tracts (christian little hand outs) with our candy and she said “OK we will give it to the scary ones!” I told her ” No, we give them to everyone, Jesus loves ALL people scary or not” she was not sure on that. note to self to work on that one!!! So I am not sure how this is gonna work with the trick or treating and all the costumes. We are going to try to go early. Bella is going to be a “beautiful princess” she says. She is all excited and ready.
I will be sure and show you all photos tomorrow :).
Here are some new creations I just made for a special project I am working on.
I was not real happy because Her teacher got cut off of this photo. IT was my own stupidity though because I HIT the button for the wrong photo before I hit submit. SO I have to just be mad at me. I will change the photo out before I am finished to the one where you can see her teacher with her head in the scarecrow.
I WAS VERY HAPPY though that the printers did print my sonogram photo. I wanted it printed professionally and they did it!! (wal greens did IM so happy thank you thank you wal greens)

Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You may be feeling positive effects from this Full Moon in your 5th House of Play. You may be ready to enjoy yourself, but you aren’t willing to slack off and let the day slip by. It’s time to put your creativity to work. And, even if your dreams seem far away, pay particular attention to them, for they will play a growing role in the new few weeks.
OK…. so I WISH my moon would LET ME GO TO SLEEP!!!! MY creativity has been in HIGH GEAR. I have been scrappin’ like a wild woman with a mission. OH WAIT that is TOTALLY WHAT I AM! I have a huge project I am working on, and some other stuff too. Can’t share all the juicy goodness yet but will show you some fun stuff I did make. ALL FOR THE CAUSE all for the cause! HEre are a few little samplin’s
I found my Be Blessed Rub on’s I had been looking for FOREVERRRRRRR! SO I put them to good use. I used the card sketch from my buddy DI HICKMAN. GO LOOK at her blog she has mad talent. We have fall festival this weekend. I want to go SOOOO BAD and IM PRAYING SOOO HARD. IT is OUTSIDE… and It is gonna be cooler but not COLD, The shingles are more sore looking now than blistery.It is Bella’s schools thing they do instead of Halloween stuff. Which is fine by me. But I hope they dont care that I show up in costume cuz I am lookin’ like shrek these days and it aint alot I can do bout it yet. GRRRRRR. SO we will see. Im hoping and praying so hard. My poor baby girl wants me to go so bad. I told her That mommy is sick still, I don’t know if I will get to. I got the “BUT THATS NOT FAIR!!!!!” and it broke my heart. cuz ya know.. ITS NOT. IT IS SOOOOO not fair for her. IT sucks actually. SO, Im gonna sweet talk my hubby, Pray really hard these suckers will not be blistery.. see if I have something that will fit me besides sweats. And do my darndest to go. I may have to sit in the car but I wanna see her walk for a cake!
PS: HAVE YOU HEARD that the new book THE DARING BOOK FOR GIRLS, will be out soon? I can’t wait. IT is based on the book The Dangerous Book for BOys but is geared to be a girl version. It teaches them all kinda cool stuff like how to things. Like all those hand clappin games the sing songy ones. Jump rope songs and fun games it has all kinda cool stuff in it. I CANNOT WAIT! Now… Gotta get Bella where she can read!Till then I guess I can read it to her and we can learn this fun stuff together.
SHE IS ON HER WAY with the reading though, she is recognizing words and is kickin’ it big time with writing her letters. I GUESS we won’t be spelling around her anymore.. ESP the naughty words! OH I have story to tell on that one too.. BUt I cant now I MUST SLEEEEEP!
I am in total awe right now. YALL CALL GUINESS cuz I AM SPEECHLESS!
THIS MEANS the absolute world to me. Thank you Jacinda from the itty bitty and allt he big spots too in my whole heart! IF you cant get the link to work. here is the photo of it.
whehewww. I got the rough draft of my article written.. my stuff set aside to mail. My photos set. Design Team Items done, well, ready to photo and upload, circle journal all done, except my question pages, My life challenges finished,
WHEHEW. THAT was a productive day! I worked my tail off today, but, got caught up and done. well, with all that anyway. Tomorrow I will hug extra on my hubby and kid. Have been in bed and with the medication they have me on.. I turn into a hermit. Makes my nerves really bad. So I come out and look at them some and then go back in the cave. SO tomorrow, Im gonna spend more time and pray that the meds aren’t bothering me. I feel better too, knowing these things are finished. I don’t like procrastination. I want my stuff finished as soon as I get it. That way I can get the perfect photo, or the final touches just so, in the week or days before it is due. Sometimes though, Life just doesn’t work out that way. I did finish my scrappin and I did an extra page JUST CUZ. yep JUST cuz I wanted to. You ever get that creative flood when you havent been able to create in a while and your just ITCHING to do something even if it is wrong! Yeah that is how I was. SO I did an extra. I have to say I LOVE LOVE this new basic grey chipboard. The letters are so fun and you get so many. We have our Reminisce Designs upload at Treasures tomorrow also..err today. I was really fortunate last time, all my uploads are gonna be published…(I am just a LITTLE BIT excited if ya can’t tell) I doubt these are gonna do the same but OH well. I like em’
After I take the photos tomorrow (too bulky to scan) I will post them for you to see. Deal?
NOW I must scoot mini me over so I can get in bed and catch some Zzzzz’s.
Hopefully soon I will actually get to get out with other people in the world again. Till then.. here I sit … scrappin’ 🙂
Edited to add:
I finally got my Reminisce DT projects Photographed. They were so generous with their collections for our entire team. Thank you so much! Here is the Live out Loud Line with a little girl that is definitly livin’ loud (you should have heard her earlier haha)
I redid this entire board book. I used one of her pony tail holders to keep it closed. LOTS of bulky goodness in there and MORE TO ADD!
Here you can see it open. I didn’t post all the individual pages here but you can see them in the Reminisce gallery at Treasures.
This layout had to be done. She is so funny and I just LOVE these photos. Also got to add these pages to my moms album and my mother in laws album and IM sure my sister in law will want some too. SO now you know why I duplicate photos. WE had SOOO much fun this day. Playing in the dress up clothes, Dancing and singing. Man it is going by so fast…
She is getting so tall! She has completely skipped a size in clothes just for the length!
OK I need to go check on her and her daddy. Just wanted to come back and add the photos of those pages.
Hope you have had a beautiful Sunday.. I know we have.

SOrry I haven’t updated my sad little blog. IM sure you all have seen The Hunchback of Notre Dame” movie huh? Quassimotto the bell ringer guy with the big hunch on his back and the big swoll up eye. Well we look like first cousins right now. Minus the hunch in the back. I have been sick ONCE AGAIN. I know I know whats new huh. I had a big BIG ol kidney stone (we named it payne) then because of the trauma of the kidney stone it made the shingles come back out. YEAH not pretty. IN my eye and across my ear looks Horrible. TOTALLY GROSS! Today is the first day I feel human so I thought I would post. I had done this page back in between illness on a day I felt productive. It is for my new adventure, Doing the all about me challenges and classes at the diner. Is a really fun challenge and This is just the first page of my challenge I have another one to go (havent done it yet cause well Ughmm.. havn’t been able TO SEE) and my brother is supposed to e-mail me a photo of our house what it looks like now. (didja forget bro? is ok I been illin’ so this weekend will be good)
I hope you are having the little bit of cooler weather like we are. Not that I have been outside much to enjoy it.
Thank you for all your prayers. I think we are almost out of the woods just praying for no more damage to my eye, and hearing. (pause for my husbands laughter since he thinks I dont hear good anyway or rather have my ignore feature on) From now on anytime I get a cold, or a hangnail ANYTHING, the dr said I HAVE to take this shingle medicine that any little thing can bring it back out. OH well such is life. I keep saying COULD BE WORSE!
ANYWAY, IF you want to be a part of the all about me challenges just shoot me an email and I can hook you up 🙂 OR Just respond to this post. 🙂
