Bub and I spent a bit this afternoon making witch fingers to shock Trev with when he gets home from school. Of course Bub being Bub he had to go a step further and make an entire hand...I think they turned out cute in a gross sort of way of course! Every year we are going to try making something new for Halloween. Traditions have to start somewhere, and what better place then in the kitchen!

This was tough to do...Bub saw me working on it and said Oh great...the worst day of my life. I explained this was for me not so much for him...he wouldn't have this page as a memory unless he wanted to. I then went on to explain that maybe he could see the picture as change....things changed after that. If only I could convince myself to see it the same way. This was the picture...the only one that turned out from his 8th grade graduation. I hadn't seen him in a group setting since first grade...Since his diagnosis this picture haunts me. It screams at me to wake up and see what's there.
I wasn't going to share it...but then I decided by not sharing it might be that I'm ashamed. I am not ashamed. He is still my baby. My sweet sweet boy. I just don't want to add pain to pain. Here's to healing...

I don't remember how I found these but let me tell you when I sat down last night to see if I could just fold a piece of fabric remotely close to the real deal...I was hooked! 15 petals later...I had to redo this flower OMG so many times I lost track! but!!! It is so gorgeous! My only dilemas are 1. boys and flowers don't go together, and 2. the bulkyness. I have to find some thinner fabric. Anyway, here is a picture of my little-not so little flower. This fabric was cut at 3"...I think I'm going to try 1 1/2 next. The flower is called a Kanzashi flower. I'm ordering a book on all the folds...this is one of 3 that I know of so far. Click on Kanzashi to see a video and get instructions. I hope you all can use these beautiful little creations! I do recommend using starch and a bone folder for your creasing. It made life so much easier!

Finally!! I didn't think this would ever get done! I was so picky with it. This is the third layout...the other 2 I tore apart. I printed out the sheet music for Jesus Loves Me and inked it and roughed up my edges which gave it the ooomph I was wanting! All in all I think it turned out OK. Now Trev wants one too! First request he's made for a page...I am so excited to make him one!

I wanted to try something new and fun with the boys this year. Tyler loved it and Trever...not so much. He is making a ghost that I have to finish. Tyler made a pumpkin and I made Frankenstein for Tobias. It was messy but oh so cute!

Tobias has been having problems sleeping. For days now... BUT!! he took an hourish nap and I was able to get a layout done HOORAY!!! Sometimes I feel like I have to create or I'm going to stop breathing. I hope I'm not alone in that feeling! Anyway...here it is...I hear him stirring...Just in time! Happy Monday! P.S. I used a sketch from Beggahuna...her sketches are AMAZING!! Check them out!

I still don't feel like myself but my addiction to all things paper has kept me creating! Everyone else is totally over this crap. Thank God! For some reason I'm going on two weeks with it tho. I love the way this turned out. Not sure I'm totally happy with the lid tho. I've got 3 others I'm working on as well. I will post those when I finish them.
