Ready or not

here comes fall...

Hi everyone Tina here to share some fun stuff I've been playing with over the past few weeks. I already started decorating for Halloween and I've been having a ball with crafts too.
I've been making pumpkins out of cans since the kids were in pre school, and still make them today. I start by spray painting the can with desired color.
Once they are painted and dry I begin drawing on the face using puff paints.
I allow that to dry before filling in outline
Once Frank was finished I added some floral foam, shredded paper and Candy apple suckers.

I also did several sizes of cans
another of my favorite halloween crafts are these felt pumpkins
and take a couple of clay pots and paint and you got candy corn
These cute pockets are using an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of paper, some stamps.
and here are my Scaredy Kat bars. A template I made years ago to wrap snack size kit kat bars. If you have the publisher program and would like a copy of this template just drop me an email at
Hope I inspired you to dig out some felt, paint or whatever medium you desire and start playing!

Tina was kind enough to give me one of the "Frankie's" this weekend--and the picture doesn't do it justice!! And those caramel apple suckers--oh my!! Thanks for the treat!

Go ahead and forward that template to me--I'd love to use it for school!

This is great Tina. Thank goodness my kiddos can't find this blog or I'd be making all of these tonight with them!
