What a Week!

It has been one of those! You know what I'm talking about 'cause you've had them yourself! Not that Friday makes much difference for me but it does bring my husband home to help with the kids!
I've taken a few days off to get things done here at the house. I managed to smash the right tip of my thumb in a window. Don't ask...only I can do these kinds of things! Really though, what would we do with out that awkward appendage!! It adds just the right balance to our hands...which obviously our 'Creator' knew it would!
I've got a few Halloween things left on my table that I just could not leave undone! 
This is a cousin of Boo and Eek. I've named her Hagatha, "Hag" for short!
The twins were able to make some Fall Pumpkins for their teachers. They always enjoy our painting sessions together!

I've also been working on this guy again. He sold early in September and I really enjoyed making him. 
I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and perused their aisles of Christmas Ornaments. 
I came out of the store with $50 worth of crafting materials (and believe me, that was MINIMAL compared to most times!) and some great ideas that I can't wait to do!
Also wanted to pique your interest in the Old Farmhouse Gathering's (OFG Team) newest GIVEAWAY opportunity. We're all prepping some great 'Trim the Tree' pieces and will show you in another week! 

 I'm off to the "McIntosh 1890's Festival" tomorrow! ALWAYS LOVE going with a friend to this one! I'll be looking for a doll, of course! Can't live without them! Crossing my fingers that I don't forget my camera either!
Hope life is treating all of you well!
I'll have another Giveaway in a couple more weeks so.....

Oooh, I like Hagatha! She looks 3D awesome. Awww, look at the little Van Goghs painting their lil masterpieces for teacher. Good job too!
Well, you'll forget all about that sore thumb while your perusing the festival. Have fun :-)
