I have LOTS of exciting things coming up.

     {Do Me A Favor Workshop on the 6th}
     {The Club with Amy Totty on the 7th}
     {Scrap*A*Go*Go Workshop on the 13th...Friday the 13th...with the crazy and clever chicks...Jamie Andersen and Susan Mast}
     {Off  to Inspiration Unlimited with Joey Otlo to teach a class before the BIG event begins}
     {Off to a destination wedding for a "not so little" gal that we have known most all her life}

                  -----Gosh, I hope I will have some time and energy left for my day job!----- 

Here's some sneak peeks of the projects we will be doing in Tuesday's Do Me A Favor Workshop.

This little brown Kraft box is one of the newest items in stock at ETC.  I am in love with these little gems.  They are the perfect size for homemade sweets or treats!  We'll embellish the sides with the cute new My Mind's Eye Cut and Paste paper line designed by the talented Jen Allyson.   

This mini treat sack is created using the new Halloween Stamps from the amaZing Teresa Collins and some glittered paper from My Mind's Eye.  I love Teresa's clear stamps.  I placed three of the stamps on my acrylic block to create the design I wanted and it was that easy!  No hassles trying to create my own artwork and run the bags through my printer.  It doesn't get much easier than this!

We will take this adorable printed kraft sack and fold it into a pouch that holds 2 mini Hershey bars.  A big black spider, custom tag printed on Bazzill cardstock and some fun new trims in stock at ETC add the finishing touches.  Any little goblin would be happy to receive such a "spooky" treat.

I am starting to dig out the Halloween display.  Oh my goodness, it is growing every year!  Instead of being a nice big centerpiece in the middle of the dining room table, it really has taken over the entire table!  But how can I condense it?  It's a collection of handmade items, purchases from Arkansas trips with girl friends, a "find" at the Ross Jenaye used to work at, old bottles from thrift and antique stores and items given to me by friends and family members who know I LOVE Halloween. 

OK...I just noticed the candle is crooked, I need to straighten that up before taking any more photos! 

Here's to a craft filled three day weekend!  :)

Kinsley will be here soon

She will grace this great big world with her little presence in about one month.  We took some pics this morning of mommy and daddy before her big debut. 

It was a little hot out there, but it was worth braving the heat to capture these shots!
