Show and Tell Friday!




This vignette is still a work in progress, but I wanted to show you my "BOO" sign. Pretty cute, eh? Well, that Joy is one amazing crafty girl. She shared the "how-to" on this post and I am so happy with how it turned out! Good ol' Dollar Tree! The paper I used is a scrap of ledger paper from work and the font is Black Adder. I think I printed it at 145 pt. The orange matting is just scrapbook paper. Now, I just need to finish my beloved Wendy's little Jack-O-Lantern costume-I'm picturing green tights and turtleneck, a face on her pumpkin dress, and a green yo-yo hat- so cute! I also need to paint my *ahem* "developmentally disabled" white pumpkin whose elegant orange cousin is obviously embarrassed by! Sometimes you can replicate a craft and sometimes you have to buy the original! I do get a kick out of my pathetic replica though!


This incredibly beautiful glittery frosty pumpkin is a result of Andrea's tutorial. Hers are especially beautiful because she used her gorgeous glass glitter. I had to be satisfied with my plasic Walmart glitter! The vintage sparkly earring is just sitting at the stem so I can use it again. That tip is also from Andrea- very smart!


I would love to do a whole pile of white glittery pumpkins on this cake stand. Hey- they're from Dollar Tree! I can afford that!



Happy Friday, Friends. I hope you all have terrific weekends. I don't have to work at OSH this weekend and I am really hoping to get started on the boys' room. Hopefully, I'm not too exhausted from my work week- it's been a tough one!

I love your frosted pumpkin! i'd be tempted in winter to add a smaller one on top so they look like a snowman in progress. So beautiful.
