A very merry unHalloween to you





A little decorating fun for the coming holiday - I dressed a doll in an Alice Halloween in wonderland (Graphic 45) inspired outfit, and put her in a funky "tea cup" that I found at Michael's in the clearance section - lots of ribbons, laces, and tea implements along with some tarot cards and packets of tea.

I am no longer on the Scrapgal DT so I will have a lot more time for painting, sewing, and knitting; and of course, scrapping.  I am currently working on a couple of fun holiday projects for Gecko Galz, and I just found out this week that the book in which I will have a knitting project will be available by Thanksgiving. I am very happy!  I resigned up with Scrapbook.com as ChrisAiton and am busily finding "friends". I could never figure out my old login' and then I found it on a friends list - I wish that I could delete the old one but haven't figured that out yet so if you find my new one, please send me a friend message.

Hope you are having a good week - I admit this one started out pretty stressful but once things sorted themselves out, I feel so relieved and much happier, and I will be very happy this weekend - LOL! Tomorrow night Dan is taking me for dinner to one of our favorite restaurants to celebrate, and I plan to bake myself a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting so I am wishing everyone a very merry birthday or unbirthday, whichever applies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
