A Grand Visit

 The Grands dropped in for a visit yesterday so I spent the day before decorating the house for Halloween.

  I also wanted to make them a card from the October stamp splurge. I had a treat bag for each of them and I never really need much of a reason to stick a card in anything these days.

 There was a lot of stuff in this set. It took a while to figure out how to use it all.

 I wasn't terribly creative but it was after midnight and I think my brain stops working around 11.

 I also had to wrap up a couple of these skeleton soaps I made from the new mold that just showed up. They are a little scarier than I thought they would be but after one good wash I don't think that will be much of a problem. I scented them with Witches Brew so of course I also made one for myself.


  1. Always fun to spoil the grands! Hope your time together was a sweet treat!

  2. The charm of the little trick or treat kids is darling. Skeletal soap: cleans down to the bone!

  3. Lucky grands!!! The little monster in the green outfit is so adorable!

  4. I bet the Grands will get a kick out of the skeleton soap. I need to get cracking with my decorating too.

  5. The cards are just wonderful! Love all the characters. Sure the soap will make bath time special.

  6. More fun soap! I love your cards and your Grands will, too. What ages are your GK? I seem to have missed that.....

    1. The oldest will be 5 in December and the little guy was 2 in July.

  7. You are the very best, making cards, giving away your wonderful soaps, especially to me! Thank you so much for thinking of me. I can't tell you what a surprise it was and how thankful I am.

  8. LOVE the skeleton soap - I think it's adorable.
