Witches Fingers

I bought a cheap candy mold for these witches fingers
the last time I was at Michaels.
They turned out really cute,
but I don't know if I would make them again...
at least not 50 of them!
I made them for two of my kids to take to school.
My main problem is that
those candy melts can get expensive.
The other is that it is so hard to find a bag of pretzel rods
that are not all broken and in pieces!
Oh, and you can only make 6 at a time.
It takes a while to let each set harden,
so that you can pop it out and start on the next.
The kids did love them though:)
Plus, Sienna (my youngest) and I had fun making them!

Nevada Day Celebration

My kids get to dress up in two costumes each year!
Their school has a Nevada Day celebration,
and they have to dress up
in a costume relating to Nevada.
Here they are all dressed up for the Nevada Day celebration!

Charles is a Desert Tortoise (Nevada's state reptile).
We covered a bowl with a camouflage t-shirt and added straps.
Here is Ramona as Silver (Nevada's state metal).
She wore a silver dress
(that I made using a Lil Blue Boo Pattern and a thrifted shirt),
and we covered and decorated a headband with tin-foil.

A Sneak Peek

At our Halloween costumes:
My son painting stripes on his costume...
Can you guess what he is going to be?
hint: It's a character from a movie.
My oldest daughter's costume accessories.
I bet you can guess what she is going to be:)
She wrote it on her bib necklace!

My youngest is going to be a disney princess, of course!
I was going to make her costume
(because I didn't want to spend $20 on it),
but we lucked out
and found one for $5 at a second hand shop!

Have you heard of Kandee Johnson?
She is a make-up artist that makes the most wonderful
youtube video tutorials.
My 4 year old and I are obsessed
with her Halloween make-up tutorials!
now you can guess what my youngest is going to be:)

Hope that everyone is having fun getting
ready for Halloween!

It's Bigger...It's Better:)

Here is the new-and-improved love bird cake topper.
You can already find this one in my Etsy shop.
I will try to get a custom listing up tonight.
And here is a photo to show the size comparison.
The one with the red rose is the much smaller, old version.

A New Ornament

Here is the new CUSTOM ornament
that I added to my Etsy shop.
It would make a wonderful gift for a new home owner.
I think it would also be a great way
to remember where you lived in 2010
(or any other year that you wish).
What a cute way for military families to remember all of the different places that they have lived or traveled to.

That I just finished. I love how it turned out!
Ornaments are so much fun to make:)
They are such a great way
to remember life changes and happy memories!
The best part is that you can be reminded of those special memories each year when you decorate your tree!
