Happy Halloween! You can tell where I am from these photos....in Memphis with little Clayton! We printed this photo to hand out to friends and it was a big hit.
Clayton is ready with his Trick or Treat bag! I have been here a week and Allison had LOTS of projects for us to do, including making Halloween cookies to take to the hospital for all the nurses in NICU that took care of Clayton while he was there for seven weeks, for fellow teachers at school and friends at church. I began making these Jack-O-Lantern cookies when Allison was in elementary school. I make sugar cookie dough and then add an orange egg wash and faces made with candy corn (indian corn looks great also). I bake the cookies and the candy corn melts some, making really cool faces. I add stems and curly vines with green royal icing. Allison also had a cat cookie cutter that she had reallocated from my kitchen, so we made some black cats also.
I also decorated a box for Clayton to store his special cards in, like the ones below. In addition to the ones I made him, he received one from our friend, Yunetta (on the right)....a very cool card!
Hope you have a great Halloween....I have several things to catch up with on posts, like Jackson's birthday party and other projects on which Allison and I have been working. Have a great day!
I enjoy papercrafting, scrapbooking, photography, travel and sewing. My latest hobby is knitting. I have been married for 37 years to my college sweetheart and we have two grown children, two more children (added through marriage...our children's spouses) a granddaughter and two grandsons. I love to create artwork and share with my friends.
