WOYWW - October, Oh My

Hello Friends -

Last week I was all set to play with all the lovely folks at WOYWW.  I even took the pictures I need for the post but once again, the day escaped me.  Now, in my defense, last week was especially nutty.  I had a huge project I was working on for the lovely ladies in Humbug Hall.  If you haven't checked out the Bah! Humbug! Challenge Blog, I certainly recommend them.  And, added bonus, they have allowed me to be a Guest Designer this month.

So, I need to get my projects done for them but I also had my first paper due in a class I'm taking.  Plato had me all in a dither and finally, it was Fall Festival at the Wonderkid's school.  This is a VERY big deal for his school and as a crafty person I had a ton of responsibility.

Here are some of the pictures from last week's scrap station.

All of those tags became part of the cookbook I made.  I haven't finished decorating them, still, but I am pleased with where the cookbook is right now.  The kraft masks were for the Fall Festival.  I'll tell folks about them later.  I also need to write-up the glow in the dark Halloween decorations.

Here is one more close-up.

But that is enough about last week.  We have moved onto this week's craziness.

Here is my craft island right now.
You can see some sneak peaks of my projects for this week's Bah! Humbug! designs.  I also have a bunch of cards I'm making using water colors from the Wonderkid.  They make lovely card toppers and now I only need to add a sentiment and poof, cards from a little one.  Isn't it fun?  They are very colorful so it is tough to find anything but neutral colors to go with the card topper.

Here is the other project consuming most of my time.
I've been making chocolate covered pretzels and cookies.  I still need to get the toppers made so I can assemble them and give them away.  I am hosting a lunch for some of the teachers at the Wonderkid's school so I may use some of these then.  I may send them to work with some of the family.  The goal is not to eat them myself or let the Wonderkid eat too many.

Here is a little better shot of them.

So that is my day. Here is hoping I get everything done on time.  It is going to be close.

In case you haven't joined the lovely crafters at WOYWW here is Julia's blog so you can check out the crafty folks and poke around their desks.  Julia's been working on some amazing costumes.  I bet there are other cool projects.  I'm on my way to check things out now.  See you tomorrow for more craziness.

My word, you do have a lot of things in the go. I feel quite breathless just thinking about all that. Thank you for your visit and your kind comments. I think the Wonderkid will be very proud of what you have achieved.
