Happy Halloween!

NO ERASING involved to create your own personalized chalkboard from technology...well, at least it only takes a click of a button to erase. I did this one really fast and Nest of Posies has great ideas and links for Free downloadable fonts and chalkboard backgrounds. This will do for now, but I have a real repurpose chalkboard project that I want to make...looks like I will be doing a lot of erasing to achieve this perfection.

Scare those crows away!

I thought maybe I scared him off or the Wizard had problems getting him home...well he is back for the fall season! Scarecrows are fun to make and you can add your own special touches too. Just take some old clothes and stuff with newspaper. Make a head out of muslin and use craft paints for his features and stuff with poly-fill pillow stuffing. Stuff garden gloves too for his hands. Take a dowel stick or baseball bat to prop up his body and head. For his hat, I used an apple basket. Finish off with a little raffia to stuff around his head, feet and hands and to tie the ends. Use your imagination!
