Halloween always sends me a little mad, I LOVE this time of year and being the ghoul that I am, had to make these biccies for Joshie to take to kindy (and me to take to the retreat)… don’t ya love ‘em?
Ok, so they’re short and fat for fingers but who cares, you get the idea! LOL
The Eidou Cropstar competition starts this Saturday and we’ve got 5 weeks of challenges all lined up for you! The grand prize is a Wacom Bamboo Drawing Tablet – I use one myself and LOVE it… seriously cool toy to have! Roll on week one…
If you haven’t checked out the Eidou Forum there’s a growing community of digi/hybrid scrappers hanging out and chatting away. With the economy the way it is, going hybrid with your scrapping is a great way of making your obsession more affordable. Very shortly we’ll be adding regular tutorials to the site for all levels, and Sarah has just added some stunning angel wings to the freebie section – get ‘em quick!
Steve and mum are taking Joshie to the Trunk or Treat event up at the Plaza tomorrow night, it’s organised by a church to make trick or treating safe and they have bouncy castles and lots more going on up there. I’m sad to miss it (AND the guy fawlkes thingy down in Orewa on Saturday) but then it’s just a very busy time of year. My birthday is coming up shortly, as are some rellies from Wanganui and somewhere around then I also want to do our own fireworks night.
We always did bonfire night when I was growing up. My grandmother would make bonfire toffee and we’d invariably have some near-miss with fireworks, but fortunately no-one was ever hurt and apart from a fire engine callout when a fence caught fire it was just one of the magical nights of my childhood that I’ll never forget. Whether you’re pro or against fireworks, it’s still something I want Joshie to have the same fond memories of. I think it’s a shame that each year some idiots ruin it for everyone and I do feel for the animals (ours are locked inside with the radio and lights on and they’re fine), but it’s something I’m going to do while we can. No doubt the nanny state we live in will ban them sometime in the near future, we’re on probation each year as it is.
Ok, off to finish up my packing for the retreat – have a great Halloween and stay safe!
