Halloween Happenings

I haven't updated for a little time now. I'm busy making various sizes of doll. I'm sewing like a mad one. I have scratches and cuts all over my hands. Fortunately, no blood was shed over the dolls... And I have no pictures to prove, but I finished something like 15 dolls this month.

Monster Cake!

Our daily rhythm activities concentrated on spooky things and the like. We made a bean-based cake that Lili can eat, and poured bright green icing on it. On a day we didn't have our little friend home and graced with a nap from Merrick, we painted some paper plate orange, painted spooky faces, and glued green leaves. It was the first time Mariann glued something. She loved it. Now I need a project she can glue and glue and glue and glue over and over again...

We also stencilled on that day. Scary stuff, of course! Mariann was very proud of this one, and proceed to show every person entering the house.

Um... Modpodge with toddlers.

It actually went well. I didn't have to scrape all the tablecloth afterward, just some places. Even Merrick did a great job. We've let them dry and decorated them with sharpies...I didn't want to take out the mod podge again... I love them... We will do some more for the winter solstice.

And now prepare for cute....

Mariann's helping Merrick to walk. It was from last week and now Merrick walk around, alone. They are no longer little babies.


  1. So cute! Love all your crafts.

  2. Love your candle holders! Merrick has gotten so big!!

  3. I love that you take the time to craft with your littles. And they make such beautiful things. I love the stenciled bag and the candle holders.

    I can not believe Merrick is walking. It doesn't seem possible. They grow too fast.


  4. oops so sorry my doll making makes you ache with cuts all over!!! hope you will heal soon and glad i am one of the lucky few to soon be the owner of one of your marvelous dolls!
