Thank You Mary!!!

Mary thank you sooo much for the great idea!!! I've taken the pumpkin idea to heart and here is what I began with!!! Close you ears and eyes if you own a sweater like this....but....ewww yuck!! I purchased these at a sale for .50 each and this is just the tip of the iceberg....I bought a lot of! These are some of the wanna be's! They're not quite there yet.....

Here are 2 of my favorites!! I love them sparkles and all!! I decorate for fall not Halloween but how cute are these???

Another set! This sweater had the fringes on the ends of the sleeves already. I wish you could see bling in the center of the bows. After the cost of .50 for each sweater I figured I have all of about .25 in each pumpkin. I used stuffing from an old pillow for the bottom....plastic grocery bags for the filling.....yarn and twine from around the house.....tulle from a yard sale bag of stuff....The only things I actually purchased were the gems and I did pay $1 for a pkg. of 150 at the Dollar Tree!!! Woo Hoo!!

I'm so excited!! I think I may be ready to come back!! I have lots of treasures to share this week!!!

Week 2 VOTECH House

I'm still working on the house!! We spent week 2 & part of 3 building and putting up two outside walls. The morning class put up the left side and my class built and put up the right.
So far this year building walls is my favorite part!! They go up so quickly!! I'm enjoying school more this year.....less overload of information! Can't wait to show you what we did last week!!!!
