this, that. and a mini tutorial


as you can see, no big tutorial today.
we were hit hard last week with the flu.
we’re out the other end of the tunnel with kids finally feeling better.
thank you for the well wishes!
currently you will find me still lysol-ing and opening up windows to air out our house “just in case”.
this has also sparked the need to de-clutter and make more open space…this helps with my “mental flu”… the physical purging our house makes me feel healthier as well.
yes i’m crazy. i never claimed not to be.
welcome to my world.
so i’ve decided to use this post to blog about… well, just this and that with pictures of my house as we prepare for the upcoming day of the dead with pumpkins every where (i l-o-v-e pumpkins), and a little bit of planning for the upcoming weekend.
i’ve never really prepared a whole meal in celebration of this coming holiday. (remember i’m just getting into the love of cooking over here)
but this year i think i may give it a go.
though this holiday has crept up on me super fast and i can’t believe halloween is THIS weekend, i’ve decided to celebrate with home made food to go with the theme.
on the menu for this halloween weekend:
PUMPKIN SOUP(because its so yummy)
SPAGHETTI (for intestines and guts, and because i’m pretty sure my kids will turn up their noses to the pumpkin soup)
FINGER BREADS (to look like fingers with nails)
so i didn’t get the original tutorial up and going… between sick kids, and projects for other places and being a part of this:

i’ve been busy but not able to show you anything as of yet. i was approached a while ago and thought “nope, don’t think i can.” it was dana who convinced me to meet up to the challenge… me up against 9 other women who were hand picked for their craftiness…que in the stress diarrhea. just kidding, i’m going in with the idea that when if i lose, it will be to some fabulous crafter.
so yes, i’ve been busy, but nothing to show as of yet…
i did manage to make these images and have added them here so you can add a little last minute halloween decor to your house just as i have:

how to:
right click on image.
hit “save as”
save it to your pictures (or where ever you want)
print what ever size you want.
frame and enjoy the spookiness

see you soon.
i’m compiling flicker, emailed, and linked to pictures of what you guys have been doing with my tutorials. good stuff ladies…gooooood stuff.
