Happy Belated Halloween

Look at these precious smiles!

It wasnt easy keeping this candy in tact and away from Ronnie but he was on notice...

we had quite a few visitors and I was so proud of them, being in a lower income area, sometimes the kids tend to be a bit wild but each & every trick or treater was grateful, festive, and extra polite.

I was so impressed with some of the Moms and Dads, working all day, coming home to cook a quickie dinner that no one was interested in eating, since they were focused and jazzed to put on their costumes and the door closing behind them...Gosh it brought back so many fond memories. But still the Moms and Dads were patiently and politely embracing the kids "Big Night Out".
I posted this witches hat that I am waiting to mail out to a customer, Im having difficulty finding a tall enough box for it. I finally found one but then the Post Office was closed, so its on my list of things to do in the morning.
As is making a promise to remain in the house sewing, painting, attatching body parts and making carrots for plenty of snowmen in the birthing process. I have thee best news. I met a woman who owns thee most delightful and facinating primitive shoppe a couple of towns away, and after chatting, well she was chatting, I was drooling...I left feeling nervous for agreeing to show her a few of my pieces, shes very interested. Then Saturday I got an invite to her huge Candlelit open house this Friday night. I am J-A-Z-Z-E-D.
She again invited me to come, make a date with her to introduce her to some of my work...eeeeekkk! Some of her extreme prim dolls sell for more than $100.00 each. Im not sure what to wear, & Id like to bring my camera to see if shes allow pics. Id also like to bring some pastries, maybe a ride into the Italian section of the big City of Hartford for some cannolis at any of their local bakeries...Im just so excited that she was so interested in seeing my work. She doesnt sell on a consignment basis either, she purchases outright. YIKES!!!!
Halloween is over but still " I do believe in spooks, I do... I do... I do...ohhh the bless-ed pressure!
I promise to come back & tell you all about it, Ill probably post a couple of pics of the dolls I select and make between now and then. Ill be extra busy since the schools are closed tomorrow for an in- service day & again on Tuesday for Election Day..I will however take a privilidged break to vote though..I hope you will too.

Kat, that all sounds so terribly exciting. Don't sell yourself short or let your confidence wane, you are a very talented crafter! I have proof of that fact in the darling garden angel from you. You're gonna blow her away with your creations!

This is so exciting! I think your work will be a big hit! This could be an answer to prayer!

Don't you just love those little Trick or Treaty faces? I remember the excitement when I was little too!
