We got our little glue ghosts hung up yesterday. It took them an entire day and a half to dry completely. My guess is that we did them a little thicker than they needed to be. But that's okay, because I figure they're less likely to tear now. Don't they look cute, haunting my center piece?

And this is the vase that I talked about in my last post. It was a graduation gift to my brother from our high school art teacher, Mr. Jones. Eric asked me to keep it safe for him, since he has nowhere to store it. (Oh, I'll keep it safe for you alright. Verrry, verrry safe.) Isn't it awesome?

I mean, of course I have my own vase from Mr. Jones, but... I want this one too. It's so pretty. The picture doesn't do it justice.

We've done a couple more Halloween crafts this week, too. Anicka did a cute painting of a tree using apples as stamps. I don't remember where I first saw this idea, but it's floating out there all over the Internet. And it turned out really cute. I'm going to frame it and hang it on the wall for the fall season.

I found some fuzzy black yarn in my stash and tied a spiderweb up in the corner of our living room.

It was super easy to do, and if anyone wants instructions I can tell you how I did it. I think it has a cool, graphic look to it, and I like it better than the cheesy cobwebs that you can buy at the dollar store. (But anicka loves the cobwebs, so we'll probably be putting some of that up, as well.)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your spider web. I want to know how you made it but it can wait until next year. I just took all my Halloween decorations down. Now I want to start thinking about Christmas decorations to make to put up in a few weeks.
