Halloween Treats Revealed

It's now time ... below are the Halloween Treats I made for someone(s) special. I posted a hint earlier with the little spiders you see in the first image. They were so much fun to make. I decided to make the whole project "spider" themed - as you can tell. For some reason, the colors in the photos are not true. The "grass" in them are a vibrant purple, not blue. All of the colors are much more vibrant than is showing. Oh, well, chalk that up to poor photography skills - not my forte', duh!

The next image is for a little boy. It has glow-in-the-dark spider stickers and a pair of neon green spider socks in it. I've, also, put a package of Spiderman window decals in the bag with the bucket. The spiders were made using Rolos since they were a little smaller and worked better.

The last image is for his mom. These spiders were made using the typical York Mints. This little bucket has Fall/Halloween stickers in it that she can use for different things. She can use these on pictures she takes of him if she wants to.

These little buckets will be placed inside a yellow bag (not shown) with Halloween and Spiderman stickers on them. Hope they like it; just a "little something" I've made. What do you think??

I love your little treat buckets. Those spiders are adorable.
The Tic Tac Toe board is by "A Stamp in the Hand Co.". I'm sure any stamp store in your area could order them...that's where I picked mine up for three dollars.

Well, since I was the recipient, I will just say that the finished project was WONDERFUL!!!! My son and I each received one each of the buckets. It could not have arrived in my posession at a better time. I had just gotten home from having some dental surgery. It truly made my day knowing how much work and effort my precious friend had put into these gifts. I love you and appreciate all you do for my family!!!

Love ya'll ... Rob

Blogging Without Obligation

After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
