My sister came to visit us this weekend and we did a whole lotta crafting in a short amount of time...it was great!!
I wanted to try some pumpkin painting, so I picked up some medium sized black pumpkins at Mike's and we free hand painted them with fabric paints. The kind in the squeezy bottles.
This was fun, but time consuming...I had debated about buying the large pumpkins for this craft. Thank goodness I didn't or we never would have finished!
Then we made some bird cage pendant necklaces using Tim Holtz bird cages. I love how these turned out! I put an owl in my cage and my Sissy put a raven in hers. Then of course we added some dangle charms too.
I named this owlie Timmy ;)
It was an awesome weekend that also included bowling, fall festivaling and movie watching at home and at the theatre! Love having visits from my sister, miss you Jay! xoxo

My first completed layout from an Art Journal Club I went to today. It was a MUCH needed outing for me and I had a blast! I didn't know a soul in this club, and everyone was very friendly.
We used the Distress Stains and stamps from the Dylusion Stamps line.
On the right page I added an envelope I made journaling tags for. I really liked the stamps, and I could see wanting all those Distress Stains too, the colors are beautiful!
