Halloween Fun

Good morning and Happy Friday!

Today I am posting two Halloween creations.  What a fun time of year!  My family went in search of the perfect pumpkins for carving last weekend and we had lots of luck!  My two teenage sons like to use those sketch books to find the creepiest carving designs.  They always turn out spooky and spectacular!

My first creation is an October calendar.  I have this hanging on my refrigerator!  The mini calendar was a freebie from My Favorite Things months ago, but you could print any month you need right off of the internet.  There are quite a few calendar sites.  I also found a fun Halloween paper pack from my local Archivers.  The pack is called BooVille by Little Yellow Bicycle.

Calendar Recipe:
Paper-White, Basic Black, BooVille Design Paper
Ink-Basic Black, Printer Ink (black)
Image/Stamps-Halloween Ghosts & Frankie Digital Set by Studio 313 (availabe at www.mcmahonfivedesign.com), Cloud template
Accessories-Sponging, Machine Stitching, Buttons, Wire, Dimensionals, Small Circle Punch, Word Window Punch, Copics

I used the Halloween Ghosts & Frankie digital set for my second card, too.  The images are just so darn cute!  I had fun coloring Mr. Frankie!  I also used the same design paper pack.  Don't you just love the purples, oranges and greens?!

Halloween Air Freshener

Hi!  Hope you are having a terrific Monday!

Today I am posting a picture of yet another air freshener.  I made a Halloween colored freshener this time.  I found this great idea on Pinterest a few months back and now I give them to everyone I know!  Hee Hee!  They are so easy to make!  I found a 4 pack of half liter wide mouth mason jars at Walmart.  Then you add 1/2 cup of baking soda along with 8-10 drops of your favorite essential oil.  I always use orange or lemon.  Cut a circle of your favorite design paper and punch several holes in it.  Screw on the lid and decorate!  Easy and oh so cute!!!

Air Freshener Recipe:
Half Pint Wide Mouth Mason Jar
1/2 cup Baking Soda
8-10 drops of essentional oil ( I order mine from www.rockymountainoils.com)
Design Paper
SU! Buttons
Colored Wire
Small Hole Punch
Hot Glue (for buttons)

I hope you get a chance to make one of these fun air fresheners!  Enjoy your day!
