hello, october!

{halloween} altered paint can
This is my very first altered paint can. What fun it was to make, too! I made this Halloween themed one for my charge. She's only a year and a half and won't be getting candy so I'm going to fill it with toddler-friendly goodies. I was inspired to do this when I saw this 2peas post. This was also my first time using my two new stamp sets! I used this stamp from Wendi Speciale Designs and this alphabet set from Paper Wishes. The weird thing about the latter is that it doesn't look like the photo in the catalog or online. My set is black letters on a foam faux wood. Funny, huh?

How sweet is this candy corn?! My 13 year old sister, Sarah, made this for me in her woodshop class. I've made it through Sept. wondering why decorations were already out (straight through Christmas!) but now that it's October- I'm game! :)

I just love it...wow, I have to have one. I NEED one. :o) Sarah did a great job on the candy corn. We just went shopping for some very cute decorations. I am going with a fall theme (so it can stay up until Christmas) but we did get quite a few pumpkins and other fun goodies. We are going to carve them until the end of October, but we we do, Vince and I are going to have a contest. ;o)

Wow...so many typos. Oh well, I would a grave yard shift last night, for 12-1/2 hours and only slept 3 today. Goodnight.
