halloween blues

it is that time of year again and i just don't seem to really care. usually i love halloween and fall and everything that goes with it, but this year i'm just kinda...meh..
the pic above was from two years ago with some of the kids when our theme was toy story, every year i pick a theme for us and our neighbors and we go all out with decorating the front yards and with costumes. our kids friends and our friends often join in and the cast of characters can get quite large.
i got the inside of the house decorated but i just cant seem to get in the spirit this year, we are doing lord of the rings this year which is one of my favorite trilogys but to be really super honest i just cant seem to care one way or the other. maybe im just overwhelmed with life at the moment and dont have the emotional energy, does that sound like to much mumbo jumbo? i dont have  any other you ever feel this way

Project #2

So project number 2, so I realize that this is a christmas project but I wanted to go ahead and do it, so here it is.

It is actually a paper mache house that I first painted white and then covered with scrapbook paper. The roof was done with strips of paper that I first curled around a pencil and then glued on. I then put on a layer of mod podge and sprinkled some fake snow on.  

The whole thing sits on a wooden spool that I wrapped some xmas ribbon around.
Not sure if I want to put a hangar on it or leave it as something to sit on a shelf.

Project #1 haha

Yes i actually got one done and finished.
so i painted three paper mache mushrooms. two of each color, without further ado here they are.

project one is in the books, now i need to get another one done for this week, maybe i can finish the house.
i do wish there was someway to get them to stand up on their own, if anyone has any ideas please let me know.

52 projects

For several years now i've been trying to do a 52 projects in a year, inspired by a forum on
and needless to say every year i have failed miserably. So this year i am at it again, at the moment i am working on painting six paper mache mushrooms and decorating a paper mache house. hopefully i will get the mushrooms done tomorrow and will post the results. the mushrooms will count as one project and the house will count as another.

i am still doing the orginization challenge. took a couple of weeks off due to the holidays. so far have done my kitchen counters and pantry. have started on week three which is the fridge and freezer. will post pics of that progress in the next week.

so every week i need to get a craft project done and organize some part of my home. ya, i so got this....
