Halloween fun!

I wanted something fun to put with my little bags of Halloween candy to pass out to the trick-or-treaters this coming Saturday. I found the idea for the pumpkin and Frankenstein on a website called splitcoast stampers. But I came up with the other two on my own. The green goblin with the big round eyes was my first idea but I switched to the oval eyes since they were easier to punch out. I thought the little devil was fun too! It is amazing what you can do with one shape. I tried to make a Ghost but the shape just didn't work right. I think if I punched the paper out in brown I could even make and owl. Thanks for looking!!

First Cards in a Long While.

Okay so I have finnally gotten around to making some cards. Now I really need to get down to getting the kids some Halloween Costumes! Kaia wants to be a mummy and Jou a scary lady. Jou's I think will be a bit easier than Kaia's. I hope to go to the fabric market next week and get some white material for the mummy. I think Jou is really wanting to be a witch so hopefully I will not have too hard of a time finding something. Once the costumes are together I will post pictures of them.

Hope you liked the cards! Thanks for looking!

Scrapbook room.

It has been awhile since I have made any cards and I am very happy that I have been able to get into my scrapbook room. Here are some pictures of the room. I still need to get a few totes to put my stamps in but I hope here in not too long I will have my room at full function. I spent a lot of time in my scrap room in Belgium but I don't know if I will get as much time in here now that we live in China. Since I am able to attend the kids school so much I want to take advantage of that. I have been spending part of one day a week in each of the kids classrooms. I am on the Lunchroom Committee so I have those meetings twice a month, I have play group with Bhavik every Thursday, and one Tuesday a month is Lunch Bunch, and one Tuesday is Explorer day. Not to mention all the other shopping there is going on. But I suppose there are always the evenings!

It has been a bit of an adjustment working in this room since it is a bit smaller than my room in Belgium but I really don't think I will be having people over to scrap with me, at least not very often, so it really is plenty big for just me. I really have enjoyed having my punches hanging on the wall. I have seen this idea many times and always wanted to do it, so I was excited when I bought this racks to hang my spices only to find that I didn't have space in my kitchen. So right to the scrap room they went. James was even happier that he didn't have to hang them. Since I just called the workers from River Garden to come and hang them. It cost me 5 RMB per hole they have to make. So for 40 RMB I was able to get them hung. Which is about $5.50. The best part was I didn't have to wait for James to get around to it.

I'm so Lucky
