Tricked you! you thought I was done yacking for a while! The beam witches have had their day, yes, but still... read on!
To start, since we'll be in Houston for my sister's wedding for Halloween, I elected to do all of our ordinary Halloween activities on my birthday! We ate apples and doughnuts from strings, and we carved jack-o-lanterns.
This is the one I made.
And this is the one Mary made! An interesting thing that happened with it is that the candle was too tall, which scorched the top, and smoke came POURING out the eyes! It was a neat effect.
Then I made me this birthday cake.
With peanut butter frosting. I then took some wax paper and cut out a face...
Laid it on top, melted some chocolate...
Whether or not this was any easier than just frosting free-hand... *shrug*
But where's the witch? You still wonder. Well, before aforementioned trip for Halloween, I worked all in a hurry to get this done!
My brand new Halloween dress! I sewed it all in about a week. I'm very proud of myself. So in the most shocking twist yet, the next witch... is ME!
So we may have done our Halloween festivities already, but this is coming down to Houston with me for the day itself! Mwahaha!!
And here's some more fall pictures. Because I care.
Now I am met once again with the question of what to get as a wedding present... hmm...
