Halloween Craft


A while back Dollar Store Crafts had a blog on making a haunted birdhouse village. I thought what the heck. We had some birdhouses laying about, why not give it a go.


This is how my birdhouses turned out. (There were before pictures, but sadly I accidentally deleted them on my camera!!! ) It was just a fun project that even I, the craft challenged couldn't mess up too bad. The best part my four year old son LOVES them!

Something to think about....



My friend has this posted on her Facebook wall. When I read it, my first thought ~HOLY COW! That is exactly what I have been feeling for a while now.~
I LOVE my friends. Would do anything,well, almost anything for them (meaning -no murder/jail time/ in general any illegal activity is off limits.) I have come over late at night to console after a bad break up, been the voice of reason when truly there was no reasoning, and been the ear for some to bend when they just need someone to listen. I don't do these things because I am keeping track I do them because that is who I am. Heck, everyone needs a release at some point. After a while though, when you only call me for sadness/tragedy/advice it gets old. Or when I call just to say  Hi and the first thing I hear is "it's about time YOU called" or "I would have called but I have been so busy!" That space in my heart gets smaller. EVERYONE is busy. EVERYONE has tough things going on in life.
I think it is good for us all to take a good, long, hard look in the mirror of life.  Are you making/keeping up the efforts to stay in peoples lives? Are there people not making the effort to stay in yours? Perhaps a little restructuring is in order. Just say'n.
