This is Halloween, This is Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone only 23 more days until the fun begins! I made this Nightmare Before Christmas pumpkin diaroma for a contest at my son’s school. First prize is discounted tuition of $150.00 and 2nd is $100.00.  My fingers are crossed for a win!

This was made from a hallow carvable craft pumpkin, sculpy modeling clay, air dying clay, acrylic paint, etc.

The Halloween Spirit 

As you may know, Halloween happens to be my birthday and therefore one of my favorite Holidays next to Christmas so I thought I would share with you my decorations this year.  I have been slowly collecting and crafting decorations for years.

This is actually not even close to the amount that I own, but my husband already has his patients tested with just this amount.  Next year I want to start working on my graveyard fence in late July to early August so that I can make my lawn look like a proper graveyard the way it’s begging to be.

Well, I hope that you are a little bit inspired and get outside to decorate your house for this spooktacular holiday!  Happy Halloween and happy crafting!
