SwAp GoOdiEs GiVeN BinGO & HaLLoWeeN Fun!...:)

Good Sunday morning to you!! Today I thought I would share with you some swap goodies that I made for 2 gals..The above one is for Nancy Huggins friend thats house burned and she wanted to give her she asked me if I would swap with her...I said sure!!!...who doesn't like to swap..;)She asked if I could add "lynn's coop" to I asked my good pal Cindy from Cynthia Lee's Designs if she could help me out..I don't have the technology to do this Cindy being the doll that she is did..:) she sent me to different fonts to choose from and away I went..;) I got some wonderful smelling soap and a cute little ditty bag that has a crow on it from Nancy...

These two photos are for a swap I did with Lynn of painting thyme needfuls..I asked her if she would do a swap with me as I love her painting ..and she I made her a towel..then it hit me..I could add Lynn's coop to her towel as a surprise...I used the different font on this one..I love how they turned out..;)Thank you again Cindy for your help in this..;)
Abby has found a new home at Lynns and currently sits on a rocking chair.;)

okay are you ready for your two bingo words.;


Below is from an email I got today from Factory Direct..I figured since we are all in the "fall" state of mind..this would be a cute idea to share..;)
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone..and thanks for stopping by..;)

Spider Pumpkin Tealight Candle Holder Using Pipe Cleaners

Here is a quick and simple way to make your own Halloween decorations! Create your own creepy crawly spider pumpkin tealight candle holders with pipe cleaners.
spider pumpkin candle holder Spider Pumpkin Tealight Candle Holder Using Pipe Cleaners
Materials Needed:
Mini Pumpkin
Tealight Candle (we recommend battery operated flameless tealight candles)
Weldbond Universal Glue
4 – Black Pipe Cleaners

To make this spider pumpkin tealight candle holder with pipe cleaner legs simply scoop out the middle of a mini pumpkin and then place a tealight candle in the hole. You may want to try the battery operated flameless tealight candles for a safer and longer lasting candle. Next, take four black pipe cleaners and cut them in half. Bend each black pipe cleaner and shape them to look like spider legs. Finally, take your Weldbond Universal glue and glue your black pipe cleanersto the upper part of the mini pumpkin. Now you’re ready to decorate!
