Where oh where.....

has this month gone to???  Oh you realize....that Halloween is just 6 days away?  I have to admit, we don't do much for Halloween, I prefer to decorate for Fall.  We do pass out candy to the little ones (?) that come knocking at our door....but other than that, I just would rather concentrate on FALL!!!  My most favorite time of year.

I am taking my 18 year old Granddaughter one of these cute little bags filled with her favorite candy!!  She loves Candy Corn,  blech....I would rather see chocolate in there.  :-) But, it's what she likes.

I made up some extra bags for her to give out to her friends at college and also those Turkey treat cups that I showed yesterday.

Need I remind you that Thanksgiving is just 34 days away??? That is just a little over a month.  Then.....CHRISTMAS!!!!!

How are you coming along with the Christmas/Hanukkah cards?  Hopefully, I can help you in the weeks to come!!

To make the little owl bag above with the exception of the nose, as she used the blossom builder punch and SU doesn't carry that any more.  But, this is what we did in class....and I didn't take time to re-do it.  :-(
