Halloween icon Pictures, Images and Photos

 Happy Halloween!!!
as promised...
I am going to have a giveaway!!! I'm have been blessed to have won at least 3 that I can think of, one just last week from ahlcoopedup and so I thought it was time for me to give back. Everything I have won has been so nice, so I'm feeling the pressure!!! 

I am giving away this shelf sitter snow man!! He is better in person. My camera and I are having 'issues'!!! I haven't mica flaked or glittered him up yet, I will give you the option of either or after the drawing!!  I have actually had the pattern for a about 3 years, I got it out of the Holiday Crafts by Better Homes and Gardens magazine in 2007!!! Yes 2007!!!! But I just checked the website, they still have great craft ideas. Maybe not this guy but others just as good!!!  I So it has just been in my "stash" of patterns the one's I always want to do but don't get them all done!!! I did actually see this guy on an Esty page just a few days ago, so someone else has the same 3 yoa pattern !! 

I'm not going to have a lot of 'rules' to get your name in the snowman hat!! Please U.S.  and Canadian address's only. I don't want to leave anyone out, but the overseas shipping is a little steep for me! sorry!!
  Here are your instructions!! :O)...
You can get your name entered up to three times so here we go!! 

1. If you don't already, please, become a follower of my blog!! If you already follow my blog, awesome!!! But please let me know and that you want to be in the drawing and I will count that as an entry!! You don't get a freebie for being a follower and not seeing the giveaway!! I want to know you read my post!! Make sense!? 

2. Leave a comment on this post for your second chance If you don't have a blog, please leave me an email address so I know how to get a hold of you if I draw your name!!!

3. Mention this on your blog for your third chance. 

Okay that's it in a nutshell!!  
The entries open as soon as I  post this...I'm hurrying!!! And I will close it on midnight November 13th. that will be right after the big show I'm getting ready for.  I may even have a few extra goodies to throw in with this guy!! 
Good luck and I look forward to hearing from you!!!

I've been consumed!!!!

 Okay, so I have been consumed by snowmen!!! I have two shows in the next month just a week apart...so I have been frantically sewing stuffing and dressing snowmen!!
 Some are done!!

 Some are in piles.....
 Some are in my chairs...with no bodies!! OH MY!!
 But they are ALL OVER MY HOUSE!!!

 These guys needs trees and some need faces and hats!!
 This guy is near complete..needs some glitter!!
 I have them in bag and "parts and pieces" laying about!!
Some are in boxes!!!They look like they want out!!!
I am dreaming of snowmen, but when they are done, I need to do some of my arrangements and some ornies and then I always think...."I can do just a few more things".. these shows are my Christmas money so the better I do the better the Christmas for my kids is, so I think if I can get a few more things done that is just that much more that Santa can do!!! I do enjoy it so that does help and thank God for my family being so tolerant of all the snowmen in about every room of the house!! I don't have a lot of storage so it's gets a to looking like a snowman village before to long!!!
Well, I have more faces to put on some of these guys.. be looking for my giveaway... I will pick one and get it on here to go to a new home soon!!!! Have a great day!!!
