What I sold at Marge's Pumpkin Patch. Anybody want to know?

This is the Spooky Spider jar I made to show everyone our Decor Elements.I ended up selling it to a lady for $30 including the goodies inside. The spider was so easy to put on and what an eye catcher it was!

Chipboard coaster memo pads. Sold 3 @ $2.00 each

9 Felt Flower pens @ $1.00
3 Greeting cards @ $1.00
3 Small decorated glass jars @ $2.00
1 Mini scrapbook @ $5.00
4 Kid Cards Kits @ $3.00
14 Test Tubes @ $2.00
22 Owl's head treat bags @$1.00
2 Mini comp books @$2.00
2 Mini comp books w/matching pens @$3.00
It was a beautiful day! Lots of stuff for the kids to do. Lunch was served for a free will donation, which this year went to the local flood victims. Marge always picks something or someone different to give the money too. She is a very nice lady, along with her whole crew, put on a great family filled day. Ok, I'm done yapping! I've got to get off here and order another spider!

A couple of spiral cards and some more goodies for the Pumpkin Patch

"Color Me" Kid Cards

Halloween Test Tube Favors
I bought these test tubes from Oriental Trading last week-end when they were having a sale on Halloween stuff, plus FREE shipping with a $5o order!
Flower Fusion Pens
I cased this idea from a fellow SCS. I've got to go and check out who it was so I can give her credit for the idea. It's a great one, don't you think!

Bugs and Kisses Spiral Card (front)

Star Spiral Card (front)
After doing do alot of these finally decided to try and cut both my spirals from the cirlces at the same time. It worked and made the card making alot faster after that. Plus I knew the spirals would be the same size.


This is one of the table decorations a gal I work with (Janice) made for my mom's "Class of 53" reunion. Notice the circle the numbers are in. Look familiar? It's the bottom of the little basket sizzix die! Of course I had to add a little something to the arrangement.

Vacation Time

I'm going to be gone for a couple of days. My husband and I are going to take a little trip to Branson. Hope to catch a couple of good shows while we're there. Be back soon to show some more things I've been working on for the Pumpkin Patch.

"Happy Birthday to You"

Aren't these cute? I made these cupcakes for my cousin's birthday. I used the stamp set WOW Flowers, the round scallop punch and the 1 3/8" circle punch and the new In Colors, also added a pink brad to the middle of the flower. I stuck each on a toothpick with a glue dot. Thanks for stopping by.

Mini Scrapbooks for Craft Fair

5 1/2" x 6" Scrapbooks

These little scrapbooks are so cute and EASY to make! Did I say EASY? I got the instructions from a Splitcoast Swap I took part in at convention. It only takes 2 12"x12" DSP and 2 12"x12" pieces of colored cardstock and some embellishments. I used the BS and the Go Go Boots Alphabet for the words on two of the books. The top two were made with retired Scrapkits and the other with Summer Picnic DSP. I'm so happy SU kept the Summer Picnic DSP.

Washington Apple DSP

Small Comp Books and Matching Pens Covered with
SU's new Washington Apple DSP.

I love SU's new DSP and I want it all! I'm busy working on goodies for a craft fair on Saturday, September 27. So I'm going to be sharing pictures of some of the things I'm making. Hope you like them.
