Is it too EaRlY for HaLLoWeen crafts?

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!!

little cabin in the woods

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!!

STAYcation 2010!

STAYcation 2010 has begun for the Woods' family! And we're looking forward to our OFF ~ catching up, chillin' out, doing the things we ♥ and most important being THREE together!! :)

We started on Saturday with lots of lovin' on our precious Aiden. Followed by shopping and movies - Despicable Me in 3D = SO FUN! ☺

Sunday was sleeping in, a family devotional, a swim at the lake, Stephen riding in the back of the truck through a mini cloud burst, and cooking mo mo together as a family!

I captured a few pics! Now...I'm off to spray paint!

running through my mind

i'm in the mood for a chick flick
i wish v would make mo mo for supper
i need to get busy on some of my {many} projects
it is so cold in my office that my nose is running. seriously.
long necklaces are cool
i have fallen in love with chenille
i don't have any chenille
maybe i can get some chenille
my stomach is growling
i should have eaten breakfast
when i'm at work i want to craft
when i'm home, i'm too tired to craft
spray paint is cool
last week was too rainy to spray paint
now its too hot to spray paint
my house is a mess
i hope stephen does his chores today so i don't have to wring his neck
i hate dusting
i hate vacuuming
washing dishes isn't so bad
even without a dishwasher
and I like washing clothes too
and throwing crap away
i love to throw crap away
there's just not too much stuff i think is crap
if i were thin i would wear only vintage clothing
it looks so cool
but not on plumpkins
i need a pedicure
i'm ready for fall
i'm obsessed with witches
but not with witchcraft
is it weird that a 37 year still names halloween as one of her favorite holidays?
i wish there was an apple orchard nearby
there are several peach orchards
i guess apples don't like this texas heat
who does really?
