Halloween Party 2016

I love this time of year when I get to be super creative and decorate. We had a family party this year with special effects, lighting and of course fun food stuff. My favorite part of the party were the voodoo lights over the dining room table and the beautiful table setting that i finally finished collecting. The best part of decorating was reusing old decorations and finding new ways to display them. Enjoy the photos.

Fireplace with charred witch remains, red witch shoes, coffins with skeletons and glowing handprints.


Food display, brain cupcakes.


Fairy skeletons trapped in cages, hanging bodies in the front windows, witches and a werewolf.

Zombie Apocalypse Baby Bibs with Embroidery

It’s nice to finally get this project finished and in my shop with Fall just around the corner. I love embroidering on this cute fabric from Riley Blake’s Zombie Apocalypse fabric line and I intend to pick up the new line coming out later this fall. There are so many patterns for bibs with snaps, which I’m sure are convenient for busy moms but I miss the little tie bibs as they seem to last longer and these can be pressed back into shape with steam on a cotton setting.

These are just the first of the bibs that I started last year before we had news that my 25 year old daughter was going to have a hip replacement from a strange cyst growing in the joint. I packed all the bibs away for another time to come. My daughter is doing great now, nearly a year later and I hope I can pick up all my unfinished projects and complete everything before the holidays. More bibs to come and have a great day!
