Halloween Decor

My Halloween Decor is lacking the spookiness, according to Lillie.  
After I put everything up Lillie asked me if I was going to decorate for Halloween.... darn these kids....they are too honest.  
I made two new, not so spooky Halloween decorations.

I made it out of coffee filters that I "tea died", but instead of using tea bags, I used coffee bags. Paper dollies, ribbon, and straws.  I just strung it on some wire.  I used three bags of coffee filters on this one.  You could totally add more.  I also hung bats that I already had.

The next one I saw at Swiss Days and I loved them all so much, but not so much the price tag.  I have tried to find the name of the lady that made them so I can give her the proper credit, but I didn't grab a card or anything.
I pretty much had everything on hand all I bought for this was two fat quarters.

I cut out squares and triangles to make the houses and added trim, ribbon, and some lace.  For the windows I cut out more squares and then stitched around them to make them look like windows.   I then stitched the houses on the main fabric.  For the (main fabric) background I covered the class with fabric.  This was the fastest project I have ever made.

Birthday Girl

My little Easton, my "turd-ston" turned 4 today.  
 She is my last baby, it makes me so sad, but I'm also so excited to see what 
this crazy little girl has in store for us.  

4 things that we love about this girl:
1. She makes us laugh everyday, she is so silly and she knows it.
2. She loves her big sister like nobody's business.  She counts the hours until she is home from school.
3. She will always cuddle with me when she wakes up from her naps.  
4. She is my sidekick all day long, and a good one too.

Happy Birthday, Easton!!
We love you!
