Happy Friday! 2 more sleeps until Halloween! Yay!
I completed 30 of my 40 monsters, they are named,
tagged, and stowed away from my craft sale tomorrow
in Didsbury! I might possibly get the other 10 done
but I have a stock of 60 ish for tomorrow if not.

You can check out some newbies on my flickr :)

I'll be back to post on Sunday!

Do you have your costume all picked out???

Hi! Happy Wednesday!
A quick little monster update, I have sewn up my
40 monsters! All of their mouths finished, arms attached.
That is my least favorite part.. arms. So tedious.
Tonight I hope to finish up faces and tomorrow tag
them :) So Friday we can spend the night watching
scary movies, and carving pumpkins! Dinnon has his
pattern all picked out!

I have some fun little snacks to make and post too :)

This Saturday is the start of my Christmas Craft Sales.
You can find me at the Didsbury Curling Rink
from 10 am to 5 pm.

Monster Motivation

Hi :) Happy Tuesday!
Just popping in to give a quick monstery update.
I have 6 sales coming up over the next month and
a half, and I have to admit that I have been lacking a
wee bit in the sewing department. No particular reason,
I seem to have lost my October mojo. I finally put up my
halloween stuff this last week, it's my favorite holiday!
I dug out all my sweater stock, and again vowed not to buy
another sock. The pile is ridiculous.. and have been plugging
away. My goal, is to have at least 40 done by next weekend.
I'll keep you posted!
My next sale is on October 30th in Didsbury, I will post more
details on that next next week when we are a little closer.
Hope you are having a great week!

I better get sewing...

Thank You !!

A quick post to say thank you to everyone who came
out and adopted a monster at the Red Deer Market
yesterday and throughout the entire season!

It was my BEST market ever, and it was awesome to
see so many little guys get adopted! I hope to be
back there next year with a permanent spot ;)

So Thank You! And You, and you...and you!

Candy Turkeys!!

Hiya :) Happy Friday, and a long weekend too! Woo Hoo!
Tomorrow will be the very last Red Deer Market!
We'll be there from 8 to 12:30 :)

For Thanksgiving, I thought I would share these
cute little turkeys with you.

A few years ago, a dear friend of mine, showed me
these and now they are a thanksgiving tradition :)

They are super cute place settings at the dinner table!

All you need is these few ingredients :
- Candy Corn
- Chocolate Icing
- Lindor Chocolate Balls
- Mr. Christie Chocolate Wafers
Firstly put your icing in a piping bag with a small tip, or
even in a ziploc bag, and snip a tiny bit of the corner off.
Then with a steak knife, cut the bottom portion off of each
cookie, as shown. You will need 2 of these for each turkey.
Then, around the edge put a wee bit of icing, for
the candy corn to stick too :)
Place the candy around the edge in a fan, pressing into the
icing to make the feathers. Let this dry for approximately
10 minutes before handling them.
Then apply a line of icing along the bottom of the back piece,
as well as along the edge of the bottom piece, and a little
dot of icing to add the lindor ball to. You have to do this
little step relatively quick. Once you have the back
and the bottom together, pop the little ball on there
to act as a bit of a prop, so the back doesn't fall off.
Then I prop it up again something, to hold it in place
while the icing sets. Once you have all your turkeys
together, you can personalize them, and then add a little
dot of icing to the top, and a little red m&m.
And Voila! Done! Super Cute & Tasty :)

Happy Thanksgiving!!
