Marshmallow Frankenstein.

I came across these cute Marshmallow Frankenstein's on this blog and thought they were so cute. So I just had to make them!! Since I have 3 kids in school that means LOTS of Marshmallow Frankenstein heads...67 of them!!!
I have to say, they were not hard to make just a little aquard. Especially when it was time to figure out how to "transport" them to school. I ended up making boxes for each class and putting them in there. For their faces, I used Wilton's Black Decoration Gel, which I probably won't use again. That stuff looks great on the marshmallow's but I found out that it doesn't really dry. So after being in the fridge for about 3 hours it was still wet. So the idea of putting them in individual little treat bags went out the window. So if I make these again next year, I will probably use chocolate instead of the gel. But they still came out very cute:)

Nellie layed on the kitchen floor the entire time we were dipping marshmallow's in the chocolate. I think she was hoping we would drop something!!

The Final Result!

Thanks craftomania for this great idea. My kids loved them!!!

Happy Halloween T-Shirts...

Last night Tammy and I finally had a chance to make the kids their Halloween t-shirts. I have to say, I am very happy with the way they came out. I made 4 and Tammy made 2 (one for Lilli and one for herself). Before I went to bed, I layed their shirts out so they would find them in the morning when they were getting ready for school. Guess what...2 out of 3 wore them to school. I guess Joel is getting too big for mommy's little craft projects:( I have to say, it made me sad. But I just have remember that he is ALMOST in middle school:( He did say he would wear it to the Halloween party on Sunday (we will see).
Anyway, here they are:

something CUTE!

T Pink Stamper is having a challenge today to make something cute. Lucky me, I had to make a couple of invitations...a baby shower invitation (which I got the idea from here) and an Halloween invitation which I did on my own, with some help of my neighbor. I think they both came out very cute.

I am very happy with the result of both of them. I had a lot of fun working on them. I look forward to what else she has in store for us this week.

New Neighbors

This past weekend we had some new neighbors moving into the house next to us. So to be a nice neighbor we made a little goody bag. I made a stack of 6 blank cards for them to give away. Riley, Jesse and I made them some chocolate chip cookies. So today, Alina, JoJo and I took a trip to Target and got one of those cute tins in their dollar spot (the big ones) and a little halloween hand towel to put it all together. Here is the end result.

 This is just a little note I wrote to welcome them to the Cul de sac.
 Riley and Jesse also made them some cards.
 I know, its not a halloween bag but thats all I had...either a valentines day bag or a blues clues bag. I figured the hearts would be better:) (since they don't have any kids yet)
I think it turned out really cute.

Playing Dress Up...

You know Halloween is around the corner when the kids get all their costumes out. Today we got Alina involved with it too:) Riley got out her old Cinderella costume and we put it on her. I have to say, she looks pretty cute.

Here is a picture of our little "Larry Boy". Terry was getting him dressed for bed and did this too him. He LOVED it!!!

Ok Raluca, I made a new post. Where is yours???
