Halloween Eve

Friday, October 30, 2009

Excited about tomorrow and
feeling a lot better than I was last week...



Actually yesterday was the first day feeling like myself again and today I brought out some of the projects I’d been working on earlier this month. Below are some papier-mâché cats I made to decorate the fireplace. I'd seen something similar about a year ago at the Disney music center gift shop, but they were too expensive to buy:



Also, one of my most loved Dusty Springfield songs... Spooky:



Lastly, Día de los Muertos charm necklace I’ve tried to make for about a year that I finally finished... and painted nails to commemorate the holiday also!



Hope you’ve had a wonderful week!
I’m off to catch up on my favorite reads…

Someone today mentioned joining in (blogging). I said I never feel I need a blog or to 'join in' as I've been in for ages, highs and lows, but if you do it voluntarily it's probably more fun.

Rebecca said...

You made those cats? I love them! I can't even remember the last time I did anything with papier mache!

And your necklace is awesome as well! Way to go, Gabbi! :)

Nikki said...

The grinning cats are great.

Happy Nov x
