Computer out of commission

Test post to see how it is blogging from my phone. What I really want to know is how big the photo will be since I can't figure out how to change the size.

Last Year, Halloween Mail

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to send mail for. All these photos are from last year when I had a little Halloween party with a mail art component. Some of these I sent, and some of these my friends made and sent to our friend Ian, who moved away.

 This was a cool thing I bought at a Halloween sale the year before when everything was half price after Halloween. Holographic image.

 Clay has had a book of R. L. Stine's Goosebumps postcards forever. So this year I commandeered it.

Fun, fun, fun!

Transition your castle for the new season!

For those of us with a small budget, the changing season offers a challenge to transition our summer castles over to a more appropriate look for fall and Halloween. 
Here's a simple how-to for revamping your look!

First, find that castle you've been enjoying all spring and summer with those bright blue skies and flower pots out front

 With a few simple supplies I can show you how to transition into fall.

- a black sharpie (it goes much faster if you have one of the King Size ones)

- orange glitter glue

First, using the Sharpie color in those blue skies and flower pots.
Next, trace the outline of the castle with the orange glitter glue.

Ta da! A Halloween castle, made from simple things you can find in your craft closet at home!

If you want to layer on some more accessories, don't forget to wait until the glitter glue dries.
