October Fun.....

October is...

Birthday Month for our family - almost too many to count!  

We often have one big Halloween/Birthday/October Fest towards the end of the month to celebrate all the local birthdays - and that's what we'll do this year - if I can recover from these dratted Shingles in time to prepare!
October brings Fall weather, a welcome relief after all the hot and humid months of summer. Always enjoy the Fall and Halloween swaps too!  Such fun to see what everyone's making and swapping - so much creativity - Wow!

Kimberly's ArtJoyStuff swaps are always so much fun! This time we made 5 tags and received 5 back, along with some really special Kimberly 'goodies'.

Halloween Goodies Galore!

Look at the wonderful tags I received!

Carol Pohl - Front

and Back - EEK! HaHa!

Look what Kimberly added - this cute clip 

this spectacular wooden "witchy" tag!

Oh, Kimberly, you did it again - what a wonderful swap!  Go check out ArtJoyStuff to see all the other tags - over 20 swappers in all!


  1. This was a super spooky fun swap. I love all the tags and Kimberly's sweet clothespin and mini tag. Healing Hugs for your Shingles to be gone! Falling into Autumn Bliss...

  2. Shingles - oh noooooo! You poor things! My Mum had them and they were horrible.

    What a fun swap - can you please let me know if she has another I'd love to join?!

  4. You got a lot of great goodies to look at while you recover. So sorry to hear about shingles. I wanted the shot but doc refused until age 55...unbelievable!

  5. I sure hope you are feeling better! Enjoy your week! We're in the mountains of NC right now but we spend most of the year in it! Hugs!

  6. Oh I do hope you are better soon! I love the creative treasures you shared.

  7. Sure hope you feel better soon! Those stinky shingles really knocked my dad out when he had them. Love your tags from the swap. Sooooooo creative! (Love the "we have cookies" line.)

  8. Hey there! I received one of your tags in Kimberly's swap. It's a precious, sweet tag equally enchanting from the front AND the back. I love the extra beadwork and the pretty black ribbons. Thanks so much!
