Trick or Treat from my little Witch to yours!

My Daughter Kate dressed up for work yesterday. She's my only one still living home, so Mom had to snap her picture!  I miss the days when I had to dress up 4 kids, and drag them all over the county trick or treating!  Back then, it was such a chore.
Have a safe, and fun Halloween.

This is my Niece/Cousin Bevin and her Husband Aaron. I just love the makeup that she did for this
Titanic survivor costume. She's so talented!!
I say Niece/Cousin, because she is the Daughter of my Favorite Cousin, Cindy.
Bevin always calls me,  Aunt Pat!!

I'm working on some new Snowmen

 This is the very beginning of the snowmen. I can't show what I'm making because it's a surprise for one of my eBay groups Snowman exchange. I had to tease.

My little doggie Niece, Sadie the Jack Russell  is here visiting this weekend. Her Daddy, my Nephew Chas, and I share custody.  She's his, but lived w/us for almost 3 years. Now, she comes for visits when he needs a doggie sitter.  I just love her. Never say the word "Treat" around her, unless you have one.
It's a Dogs life!

This has been so much fun. I'm trying  to visit all my new followers blogs.  There are so many fun ones that I want to revisit!
I'm picking the winner late Friday.I'll probably post it on Sat. Friday is my Mother's 80th Birthday, and I'll be a bit busy cooking her a nice dinner and celebrating with family and friends. She has numerous of health issues, so I'm trying hard to make the day special.
Tomorrow, I hope to post my newest Primitive Bear made from an old quilt, and A Snowman that wears a jacket from the same quilt.  I love this quilt, and the first snip was tough to do! LOL... I wish I had an endless supply of this one,  The red and mustard colors suit me to a T!!!

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

The Christmas holiday season is my hands down favorite time of year to craft for!  I've been hoarding old graters that I've collected all year for this project. I got 7 made up today.  I actually found the little one this morning at a neighbors yard sale.

Show pictures.

I have a few pictures of my craft show display.  I wish I could have gotten more. The show starts at ten, but the shoppers start much earlier.  The weather was perfect! Last year the Fall stuff outsold the Winter. This year they were a close call. I used 90" muslin to cover the tables front, top and back. Then, I draped the creey cloth that I found at the dollar store on the Fall and Halloween tables.  I ran a lenght of dark green fabric across the top of the Christmas themed tables. 
It's hard to have the two holidays in one small space. I wanted the booth to look uniform, so I kept the table tops low key, and separated the Christmas and the Halloween the best I could.
My first giveaway is coming soon.  Thanks to all of you!!
