Coming soon to ACOT...

This is part of my reveal for Oct. at A Cherry on Top. I am completely in love with Helmar products as most of you know. This is a new one for me...I used the Fabric Stiffener and Draping Liquid to stiffen the flowers I cut out of fabric and then raised the various parts with the Liquid Glue Dots. I have addicted more people to these glue dots and hope to enable many more with the stiffening liquid. Thinking this might make a great class but with a shadow box rather than a hat box...What do you think?

Halloween Redoux


Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I've created one or two things new for our house each year. This year it is the shadow box of the kids and our twin grandsons that I did for part of my upcoming A Cherry on Top reveal at the end of the month to demonstrate some of the great Helmar products that ACOT carries.

Every year, we put up our dancing ghosties in the front yard, hang our pumpkin lights in the front window and wait to hand out treats. E and I dress in dark clothes and sit on the porch out of sight. When the kids (only the bigger ones btw) come to trick or treat and start to ring the door bell, one of us in a deep voice, says, "Don't ring that bell!"

We are going to have to change our routine this year for a couple of reasons. One, we cut down the hedge that gave us cover and two, the bigger kids are on to us. Last year, we over heard one little girl say to her younger brother, "This is the house where the people yell really loud at you, so don't be afraid". Games up. So we are going to put on our thinking caps and come up with something new...any ideas?

I'll put up a couple more of my H'ween projects and some free vintage post cards I have inherited. Feel free to snag the post cards and use them.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.
