~ Late End of the October Blog Party Update ~

I'm a little late posting about the " End of the October Blog Party " , but here's the final update .............

On Oct 29th ~ I won these orange and black earrings from Mrs. B's " 31 Days of Halloween ". I plan to wear them next Halloween!

On Oct 30th ~ The Grand kids and I made smelly , jack-o-lantern sun catchers from coffee filters , they are really cute. I let them use markers to draw a few squiggles , then we painted them with Vanilla , Butter & Nut flavoring and sponged them with orange paint. When the sun or heat heats them up , they smell wonderful. Sorry , no pics , all batteries are depleted.

Buzz Light Year and Woody from the "Toy Story " movie came by for a visit on Halloween. We also had the cutest bunny and a sweet little tiger that dropped by too , they were all sooo precious !!

On Oct 31st ~ We stayed home and gave out candy to the Grands , they were the only trick-or-treaters we had. I managed to take a few pics of the Grands with some regular batteries I had on hand , they don't look so great , but I least I pictures. Then I watched the " Good Witch " on the Hallmark channel , it was a quiet and relaxing evening after the Grands short visit..
I enjoyed participating in the " October Blog Party " , it was fun and I managed to do a little something for the 31 days. I didn't do half the things I had planned , but I pleased I completed the challenge. Speaking of challenges , I'm participating in a new challenge for November , it's called " Art Every Day Month ". The challenge is to do some kind of art each day , looking forward to being creative this month.

~ Blessings ~
