HaPPy HaLLowEEn !!!

I hope you had a wonderful Halloween!
Mine was very uneventful.
Me and Peter passsed out candy , Mo took his buddies
and Kassandra out trick or treating.
I did NO decorating this year.
I just wasnt into it and Halloween
is my second favorite holiday.
I have tons of decorations I didnt put up.
No haunted houses, no haunted woods.
I just didnt want to do it this year.
I didnt even take any pictures!

No MoRe GiRLy KiTs !!!

I have come to the conclusion,
that I have way too many shabby chic, girly, vintage kits.
I love these types of kits, because they are so gorgeous.
Problem is I hardly ever use them.
I probably have 30 kits untouched!
I need to quit buying them!
I need to start using the ones that I have.
I need to do more pages for my boys.
I dont think they want shabby chic, girly, vintage pages.
Kassandra has over 100 pages in her book
and Mo and Simon have half that or less.
Peter (my sweetheart) has 6 pages in his book!
I think I may even quit my sub to Bad Girls for awhile,
because I cant stop myself from buying
those beautiful kits and add-ons.
I need to buy more boy (family) friendly kits.
I am holding myself accountable
to use the kits I have and not buying anymore girly-girl kits.
I got more pages done!

I LoVe OcToBeR !!!

My FAVORITE month!
I love the colors, smells, cool nights,
warm camp fires, four wheeler rides through the woods,
leaves changing, Halloween.

Autumn Fires
Robert Louis Stevenson
In the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!
Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The gray smoke towers.
Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!

Here is my ATC for a
Zombies, Vampires & other Horrors ATC swap

and my pages for the

Halloween chunky book swap
both at ATC's For All.
