Randomness

Ok so I have lots to share. Let's start with Halloween. My husband collects comic books and so we decided since he was carving his pumpkin with the Batman symbol the rest of us would follow suit.

Right to left: Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Batman, Flash.

Now on to the costumes. We had Tinkerbell & a Rock Star! Oh what fun it was!

Now for some Thanksgiving crafts! In the Nov/Dec issue of Scrapbooks etc I found the cutetest idea - a turkey made of foam balls, buttons, paint, ribbon, googly eyes, flowers & feathers. Reanne and I made one to send to my mom. Can you guess how many buttons are on this guy? Around 150!!

Since I want to make about 4 of these turkey's (hehe pun intended) I knew that I didn't have nearly enough buttons to do the heads and the bodies. So I decided to make a girl.

I think she turned out soooooo cute! Now, last but not least this furry guy was crawling around in the driveway. I couldn't help but get up close and personal with him. I can only imagine what a beautiful butterfly he'll be.
