Guess What Holiday I Am Getting Ready For

First I want to thank everyone for all their best wishes. I had a wonderful birthday.

Yesterday I dropped off the Halloween Mini Mask for finishing. While at my LNS,
Stitch by Stitch, the mail was delivered. We were all drooling over the Halloween catalogue from Grandinroad. I saw something I wanted but was determined to find it for less.

This morning I went to Michael's to see what I could find.

I found two perfect pumpkins. The smaller one will be for the Halloween mask.

I also found this fun witch's hat with a headband. It is perfect for the medium size pumpkin.

Still could not find the stands I wanted. Where to go? Then I had a light bulb moment and off to Pier 1 I went. They were considerably less then Grandinroad
and they were also 20% off. I was one happy little shopper.

I also purchased two small ornaments and two bracelets for Halloween. I think the ghosts and candy corn would make great scissor fobs.

I made one other purchase but it is too well packaged to unwrap so you will have to wait until I decorate.

How do make the bracelets into a scissors fob?

It is had to tell,you how to bead without seeing it. The first thing I do is take the bracelets apart and decide how I want the beads. Will go through my stash to find other beads that would go with what I am doing. The best way to see what to do is to watch a video on your computer or go to a beading store and have them help you. You will need beading tools like pliers, tray, wire, etc. Denise showed me one evening how to bead and it is not hard at all. The more you do it the better you get. Good Luck.
