Is it too early for Halloween crafts? I don't think so!!! The 4th of July is over, it is hotter 'n HADES outside and I'm dreaming of a serious cold front. That is plenty to get me in the Halloween/Fall crafting mood.
A while ago a saw a BOO sign that someone had created. I wish I could remember where I saw so I could give cred for the idea.
I picked up some chip board letters from Hobby Lobby and I had everything else I needed.
I used black satin finish spray paint, some Halloween papers, modge podge, an acrylic sealer, some tulle, and some "spooky" little doodads I had in my craft room. And here's is what I created to hang on my door come October. I can't wait!!
As part of our 'stay'cation we actually 'went' away! Just a 2.5 hour drive into southeastern Oklahoma near Beaver's Bend State Park. We stayed in a lovely cabin - with air conditioning. Which is why my picture is fuzzy looking. My lens kept fogging up when I ventured outside for a picture. Whew - it was hot and humid. Inside the cabin, however, was lovely. Lots of board game playing and reading and laughter. Lots of laughter!
There was also some pancake makin' for breakfast one day!
And the little town of Broken Bow had a lovely thrift store. I'll post more about my finds there later.
And although it was too hot to do much communing with nature, the fella above spent time on our porch. I don't know if you can tell by the photo but this is a HUGE moth. I was so glad it didn't get into the cabin one evening and dart around blindly 'cause that really would have creeped me out!!
