Fall Crafting with Friends

Last weekend Carrie and I had the pleasure of spending time with a group of our crafting friends. It's always such a treat to spend time with these ladies, and our hostess, Barbara, went out of her way to make it a special time for us.

I told Barbara she wouldn't be in clear focus and I was right. Now I wish I'd changed my aperture so you could see her better!
Barbara loves Halloween, and her home was decorated so beautifully. It was so fun to walk around and look at all of the lovely details around her home.

I told you I was going to put your photo bomb on my blog, Carrie!
Barbara's daughter Summer did the witch painting when she was little. I love that Barbara has it in a frame!
Barbara had made kits for each of us and we spent some time covering matchboxes with a fun selection of papers. It was so much fun to be making something with a Halloween theme in the company of our creative friends.

Hot air balloon paper is Graphic 45's "Steampunk Spells" collection
Ghost paper is Little Yellow Bicycle's "Graveyard Ghosts"

Hooray for fall!
Hooray for Halloween fun!
Hooray for creative friends to love.

What a lovely evening that must have been ...I'd love to have an evening's crafting with my daughter! And such beautiful decorations.(Though it seems a tad early to me!).

What fun! I also have a friend who's a huge fan of Halloween and does incredible decorations for it.
