Halloween Swapportunities...And Some Ghoulish Delights!

Disney 1937 ...cutest Halloween wolfie ever!
 
George and I had a blast at Disneyland last weekend...I always hate to leave.  The park seems to get more Halloweenish every year.  I found a lot of inspiration for some of my projects...there were a lot of Haunted Mansion Holiday items, but I only picked up a few things.  I did find what I was looking for, which was a package of "Nightmare Before Christmas" figures for a shadow box to go in my office.  All in all I came home creatively refreshed!
 
Two Halloween Swaps!
Cookie Cutter Swap hosted by Sandy of  521 Lake Street and Deb of Garage Sale Gal
 

The plan was to make an ornament using a large round cookie cutter.  Here is one from Sandy's blog as an example.
 
Fun From Kim K.
Treats from Kim of Musings From Kim K.
Kim is like...the Queen of Halloween!  I was so excited to see what she sent me.

One of the tags she sent...had to hang it on the tree.
 
My cluttered table top tableau...the more, the messier I say.
Thank you, so much!  I loved it all...especially the treats...lol!

Happiest Halloween Greetings!

Have Fun!

I can't stop looking at all the great creations. Kim is awesome and so are you! Such great ideas. I scroll through and try to make some mental notes for ideas. You guys are the best! Rainy day here on Long Island so I think it's a perfect day for crafting and decorating! Maggie

Hi Shirley!
Thanks so much for coming by and commenting. And I couldn't agree more, Golden's are the absolute sweetest of poochie pies. So very dear. :)
Oh my! Love all your Halloweenie stuff, given and received. Everything is so darling.
How fun you went to Disneyland - how was the heat for you? We've been having horrible high temps - hope you were there when we had a small window of cooler days.
Wishing you lots of spooky October fun!
