Christy, my Sweet Sister Swap partner sent me her package of Halloween goodness.  She gave me a sneak peek at her project, but it was not as lovely as the finished item and only one small part!  Check out the goodness she bestowed on me…

She made me one of her Morsbags in the appropriate color for the holiday, a cute decorated tin filled with my fav Reeses’ cups (most already gone), some cute Halloween buttons for projects, one (of two) Tootsie Pops that her son Nathan sent to me (he had them covered with white tissues and decorated as ghosts), and a handmade Halloween card with such a sweet picture and the glittery embellishments and buttons added.

Now that thing that was part of the sneak peek.

Thank you, Christy….I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!  I appreciate all of the handiwork you put into this and have placed it proudly on my front door for the holiday.  Thanks to Nathan, also, for the most excellent ghost lollies!  I loved them so much it was the first candy I ate!

I spent the last 2 days working on some smalls for the craft show on the 4th of November.  I decided to play with my felted wool and create some small holiday brooches.  These whipped up quickly and I had a lot of fun making them, too.

They are teacups, oak leaves and Christmas trees (or should it be holiday trees??).  I used some templates I located using the google image finder for each of the objects and then used a simple blanket stitch to sew it on.  I then sewed on the pin back.

Here’s hoping your week is filled with scary, but sweet surprises!
