I was beginning to think it was lost forever but I found it! This is what I worked on this weekend.
You all know how much I LOVE playing in salt dough and with Halloween getting closer I was inspired to try my hand at some 'spooky' bowl fillers.
I did a few pumpkins too! I love how the ones with the crows turned out. After coffee staining them they looked so nice and 'prim'.
I also experimented with an idea for a fall bowl filler. How do you like my Indian Corn?? I think it turned out nice.
And of course you can't do Halloween without Candy Corn!
I didn't post about it but the week after I came home from camp, I went to put in an application with the school district in the hopes of getting a job in one of the school's lunch rooms. Well...... I handed in the application and was interviewed right then and there and GOT a job!
I am working part time at one of the local high schools. I am the 'Pasta Lady'! How fitting is that for an Italian girl? *laughing* I have been working there two weeks now and love it. So far the kids are great and I am beginning to recognize a few of my regular faces.
One of the requirements is that we have to wear an apron each day and they can be ones we make. Well... this was all the motivation I needed to bring down my sewing machine and get busy! Here are two aprons I made yesterday.
I had not used my sewing machine in almost 18 months and it felt so good to break it out and actually make something.
I am hoping to cut out a few fall things today after work to keep the creative juices going. It feels so good to be crafting again!
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!
