Countdown to Silver Bella - 5 days!

I can't believe in 5 days I leave for Silver Bella. Woohooo. My sister will be staying at my home with my dog and kitty's. This is a very good thing.

Ok so here is a sneak peak for some of you on my swaps. The first 2 photos are 3 of the 4 fabric flower pins I made. I am not sure I am digging the red and cream one so that is why I went a totally different direction on the remaining ones. The bottom photo is one of my ornaments. Now I am off to finish the backs of the flower pins and start labelling everything so tomorrow it can be a crinoline and gift tag day. That and I must go to the grocery store at some point. My sister would kill me if I left her with an empty pantry again.

Every since my niece was born I have spent Halloween night at my brother's house. I go trick or treating with my niece, nephew and family. This year I may forgo this plan and stay home and pass out candy. When I live din amy partment just about a mile away from them it was a no brainer to go over. Now I live almost 20 miles away and in the car it is a 20 to 30 min trip, thisis my second Halloween in my own home and I want to hand out candy this year. Plus I still have tons of things to work on before I leave for Silver Bella. I can't believe it is right around the corner. I have my ornaments, charms and ATC cards completed. I finally started working on the fabric flower swap and then that leaves me with 22 tags to do and my Junk Gypsy skirts to make. I can do all of this no problemo by next Tuesday night right?!!!

Lately after I get home from work I am just too tired to do anything and I hate it when I leave work when it is dark outside then when I get home I really do not want to do anything. I am so glad we move back to normal hours this weekend. woohoo!

I hate waking up in the dark even worse than I hate coming home in the dark! I do not get up with an alarm clock. Most people are shocked when I say that. I have one in fact; I laugh when I think about this because I even have a double alarm clock. LOL. The only time the alarm clock gets used is if I have to wake up at some horrid hour before 5:30am to go somewhere. Any other time no alarm clock going off in my house. I tell myself when I want to wake up before I go to bed and sure enough every time I wake up at that time or 10 minutes earlier. Never fails. I have never been late anywhere because I overslept in the morning. So don't forget it is FALL BACK this weekend! Now I am off to go buy candy to hand out tonight!

What Your Halloween Habits Say About You

You're a friendly person, but not the life of the party. You like making someone else's day - and you'll dress up if you think of a really fun costume.

You definitely think of yourself as someone who has a dark side. And part of having that dark side means not showing it.

Your inner child is open minded, playful, and adventurous.

You fear people taking advantage for you. You are always worried about protecting your own interests.

You're prone to be quite emotional and over dramatic. Deep down, you enjoy being scared out of your mind... even if you don't admit it.

You are picky and high maintenance. If you wear a Halloween costume, it's only when you really feel like it. And it has to be perfect.
