The artist of each of the houses (Right to Left).......Jennifer did the gorgeous house with the Frosted Mini Wheat Roof, Morgan created the delicate mini chocolate chip roof and the ice cream cone tree with green M&Ms and silver edible shimmer spray, Andie made the very detailed roof with white icing and red icing. Her ice cream cone tree was frosted white with mini sprinkles. My house had a pretzel, starlight mint and Frosted Mini Wheat roof.
We all ate our way through the construction....Andie opened presents...... and then we topped it off with pizza for dinner. An absolutely perfect day.

This is the last Sampler for 2017......the "Angel" Sampler.
It's a much simpler Angel Sampler than we've done before....no making hair and faces for tiny little angels...but the paper that I chose calls for simplicity. I even left out one of the units, just so the flowers would be more visible. I like the way it turned out....and really hope that everyone else does too.

She's a very artistic and organized witch....everything has to be in it's place for easy crafting and spells. The witch's artful assistant paints a portrait of the witch, while a very animated ball of yarn and sewing machine look on. The bulletin board is ready for lists: craft supplies, fresh orders of eye of newt and bat wings and....candy. (She has a sweet tooth.) There is a spinning wheel for those "Sleeping Beauty" type spells and an array of bottles of acrylic paint, glue, brushes and vampire blood. (Every artist has his or her own methods.)

This year for Halloween, I used the old window that Jennifer and I got at an antique show in Rockford this summer. It had old dark stain on the wood and the glass had ripples here and there...it was perfect. To "Halloween" it up, I painted a chipboard haunted house black, stacked the house on four paperback books that had black fabric draped over them....and then leaned the window over the entire vignette. I tucked another smaller window (A gift from a friend) to the left of the larger window. After attaching a few bats and a Halloween moon to the windows.....it was complete. These windows are always a work in progress...but what a fun progress to be going through!
Some of my Halloween decorations are old and well loved. I've had this little bubble night light for years and he is always very pleased to scare a few people as they go into the powder room. Beware of things that go Bump in the Night!

The layout was done mostly with Graphic 45....great colors and patterns that worked well for Fall and Halloween.
