Halloween... Swaps and some crafting

Mum and I were overjoyed when on our shopping trip yesterday and found all the Halloween items on display in TK Maxx



.... not for much longer as we purchased them all!!





These items will be used to decorate my sister in law's Halloween themed Baby Shower




Today I managed to get some crafting done for swaps I've signed up for.




First up is Artsy Mama's Sweet & Sinister swap




My partner is Melissa Heid from The Turquoise Pony and here's some sneak peaks at what I came up with today





Then the Wizard of Oz swap over at If I Could Set My Soul Free.



My Partner is Suzie over at Suzie Button Creations.



Here's her sneak peak!



Well it's now time for me to get ready for my friends Pampered Chef party this evening... I can see a few more ££££'s being spent!

OOHH! I'm excited just seeing a glittery red letter! Now I MUST get busy too!
I love all your fall and Halloween decorations for the shower! Looks like a lot of fun!
My oldest daughter, Megan, is 27 and married last August, and we just found out 3 weeks ago she'll have our first grandchild in the beginning of April! We're so excited!
