Happy Fall! Today is the first official day, but it's been feeling mighty autumnal around here for a while. I swore I wasn't going to turn the heat on until October, but I didn't want to freeze our little parakeets, so I had to break down and turn it on!
A couple of weeks ago, my daughter handed me this Lefton figurine, Miss November. She had decided that she was going to clean off her shelves and pack away things from her childhood. Right away I knew what I wanted to do with her.
I turned her into Miss Halloween!
Isn't she cute?!
I hate when you have an idea for something, and you can't find the necessary stuff to make it. I was looking for a paper mache moon at Hobby Lobby, but they didn't have any, so my daughter Liz made me one!
See? Isn't she amazing?
And once I had that moon, I was able to make this! The owl came from Michaels, and I made him a little party hat too.
I also made some flags.
I love making these, because they take no time at all, which is my kind of craft.
And lastly, we have a treat cone. I have a couple of other things that I'm working on, but honestly I don't know why I do it, because I have a teeny weeny house and I don't know where I'm going to put it all. But I can't stop!
