Let's Make Christmas Ornies

Well it is November and Christmas is right around the corner,so it is time for making and exchanging Christmas Ornaments.I am in a couple of craft clubs and we are already doing the ornie swap,so everyone will have the ornies in time to show off on their Christmas trees.I can not wait to see all of the new ornies I get,I am a ornie fanatic.I buy and swap new ornies every year,it is so much fun.Here are the ornies I am making to send out,they are prim ornies,to me they are awesome prim ornies I mean.I love the coffee and tea dye effects you get when staining them with coffe or tea.This pattern was a free pattern off of the internet at Benath The Willo Tree The pattern is by Robin Wein from Mitchell South Dakota.There are lots of great free prim ornie patterns there.Mine are going to be a little different from Robin's in that I added snow to mine and she embrodried the word Believe on her's and I wrote mine with a black pigma pen.I still have to connect the star to the candy cane and add a hanger.As you can see my crafting is done just where ever I decide to craft at,this was in my living room,sometimes I craft in the living room,kitchen table,or my sewing room.Where ever the creative feeling feels right.I am ready to start decorating for Christmas and will probably start this weekend.

Halloween with the Grandkids

We had a fun Halloween with our grand kids,we took them on a hay ride to trick or treat.It was a cold hay ride,we had to bundle up in blankets while we were on the ride,but the kids really enjoyed the hay ride.We saw alot of little ghouls out and about searching for treats on Halloween night.It is so much fun to see all the little ones dressed up in their costumes and having fun.We also went by the local church where they had a trunk or treat going on.There was about twenty cars and trucks sitting in the parking lot,with creatures handing out goodies.After you got goodies from the creatures you could go into the church were they served you hot dogs or sloppy joes and chips for a quick bite to keep up the little ghouls energy levels.Also it kept the kids from eating to much candy.From the church we went to the fire dept. to the haunted house,the kids and their mom,dad,and I went through the haunted house.Paw Paw would not go in with us,I think he was scared of all the ghost inside the haunted house.They handed treats out to the children at the fire house and they had games for them to play.From the fire house we took a little ride just for fun and then headed home,it was a terrific time we had on all hallos night.Be,ow are a few pictures of my little goblins and our hayride.
