Halloween or Christmas???

It snowed yesterday. It was a pretty good snow storm and the snow was great for snowball fights or snowman building-- not so great for driving to work.


Here is our snowman. It was a blast to make, because the snow was sooooooo good! The only problem is we had a hard time getting the middle ball up it was very heavy-- so we used a wheel barrow which helped, but I think the neighbors thought we were crazy as we were the only ones outside and we were using a wheel barrow !!! Who uses a wheel barrow to put their snowman together? Tonight we will be putting on the face and arms.





A request was made to make Halloween trick or treat bags... so as requested this is what we have. My oldest helped cut them out and do the felt applique. She is becoming pretty good help, but she is too much like her mother... no patience at all and wants everything done right now!!!!

The kids love the bags-- and they were simple to make..... I have several tutorials that I had printed out on making totes... I ended up using a modified version of this one from cluck cluck sew. We skipped the paper adhesive since we did not need the extra stabilization with the felt and just sprayed the felt with spray adhesive (it worked fabulously) and I will be using the spray adhesive more often-- less work!!! and faster!!!!

  2. The grass is still green and when the weather said snow, we figured the usual light dusting that we get before Halloween and we woke up to a couple of inches of fluffy white snow it was a suprise. We are in Eastern Idaho. 80's sound really nice right now.

  3. I was watching world news last night and saw one of the news people in Golden, CO and it was snowing around him.

  4. When I was a child in Indiana we would have the occasional white Halloween. We have a storm, SANDY, on it's way to us. No snow just lots of wind and rain. Cute bags!

  8. Super cute bags - I'm sure they will come in handy for all the candy on Wednesday night!
    We have had a bunch of snow here too - but ours was the light fluffy stuff, not good for snowmen.

  9. You can have the snow - i'll stick to shorts and short sleeves. The bags turned out great. I couldn't like without the spray adhesive

  10. Supposed to be 90 tomorrow in So. Cal. What is it with the weather. Too bizarre that you had snow for Halloween.

    Have fun!
