Halloweenie 2011 pt 1-decorations

I had a lot of fun this year making some Halloween decorations, and I promised I'd show pictures of said decorations!

I just glued some moss to a wreath form, then attached a piece of tea-stained paper to the back. (Our door is black, which made it impossible to see the crow without the paper.) Then I just glued the ribbon, crow, and spider on.

Poor Ben had to build me this huge chicken wire...thing...for me to hang on the wall. I change out the displays, and I love the thing.

I just cut some weeds from the side of the road and put ribbon on them, and printed off some clip art from, and cut out some bats from Martha.

This is my ugly witch from my awesome Aunt Teresa. I think she's so cute!

I meant to finish making labels for these bottles buuuut I didn't! Maybe next year.
Then I got all crafty and made this:

Out of these:

Here is our pumpkin, again from Martha Stewart.

James helping me carve the pumpkin. He had SO much fun playing with the pumpkin guts. Cute little stinker :)

I'll try to post the good stuff (James' costume) soon!

Halloweenie 2010 (better late than never...?)

Witch's night out!

James was this guy:


I was Rosie:

(Although one person hadn't ever seen the poster and thought I was referring to Ben and I being able to reproduce. Seriously? One of my super powers is making an uncomfortable and/or inappropriate situation out of a-ny-thing.)

People of America-you should know who Rosie the Riveter is.

Scaring Ellen's Staff with Dance!

I will always find Ellen scaring people funny, and this is amazing! I love it that once most people get over the initial shock, they pay little to no attention to the man dressed as a garbage bag break dancing. Made my day!
