of a baby dragon!!!!! Made by none other than Sprite !!!!
Look at all the cute cards and wrapping paper and box with a skelly trinket too!!!
A better shot, He really is such a sweet baby isn't he?
So sweet and adorable just like a real baby!!!! How did I get so lucky you ask? Well I will tell you, we did a swap together, but my swap piece isn't anything like what Sprite sent me,I sent her a bonehead cause that's what she wanted, go figure.... I know I made out like a bandit
but don't tell her, ok?
The details are amazing, she used real silk threads for the cobwebs and it is a luminescent figure too, I charge it under a light then turn off all the lights and it glows!!! The eyes are glossed and they look so real that when the light hits them
they sparkle!!! Sprite even added little bones for Baby Boo to much on, too too adorable!!!
I'm so glad he finally made it home, we had a bit of a scare, the post office
wasn't too sure where he was? Sprite and I called around and found him!!!
Thank goodness there wasn't too much drama!!!

They are done!!!! YAY!!!! I'm hoping that this coming year I will learn how to
manage my time better.....I've got some ocean front property in Arizona....
Here ya go,
I caught him red handed, that white-bearded bandit !
I'd waited all year for him to appear.
And there he was, like a thief in the night.
He caused such a ruckus it gave me a fright.
So I made a mad dash , but he was too fast
then gone in a flash !

The Great Pumpkin
As an Autumn wind begins it's nightly call ,
that an early frost will surely fall.
All goblins, ghosts and sprite a like,
excitedly do hear...
“ Do not tarry, be prepared ,
All Hallow's Eve is near ! “
Tis' the time the witches cheer ,
for “ The Great Pumpkin “ to appear !

" Krampus Visits "
The truth will out come Christmas Eve,
When many a child shall be deceived!
As stockings still hung and filled... quite meagerly,
Are opened by the naughty child, so eagerly!
No toys, nor trinkets, not even a sweet,
Just chunks of coal tumbling to their feet!
With a naughty list and switch in hand,
The laughing Krampus shouts " How grand! "
No Saintly Nick with his bag of toys,
Just old Krampus, visiting naughty girls and boys!
by F. Thompson
I'll leave you with a few before pic's...
Something wicked this way comes...
The devil is in the details....
speak of the devil and he appears
wait I've got more!!!!
Oh! I can hardly wait
For the new STJ update
the time is nigh ,

Well just a small section of it, my " Glitters" snowman is on the upper right hand corner of the page on the new upcoming issue of Celebrate 364 Thank you Connie!!!
There are more SpookyTimeJingles artist ornaments there too, let see if you can spot them...
Old Man Winter had come to town
bringing with him a magical gown.
Delicate snowflakes all earth bound,
which glistened and glimmered as
he placed it round...
Gently,softly to blanket the ground.
Mother Earth gasped as she looked down
at this wonderous beauty that he had found.
by Flora Thompson
SNOW!!!! SNOW?...Yes!!! It's snowing in Texas!!!! This afternoon we saw an accumulation of a few inches of that wonderous snow, some places got more than others.I know you northern states are used to it but it is a rare sight where I live,I do hope it gets heavier, but I can see that it is starting to melt....sigh....

and never enough time....I just barely finished my newest updates for SpookyTimeJingles
A cautionary tale about a clueless male,
who took a shortcut through an
ominous trail !!
He did not tarry but quickened his pace,
heading towards his appointed place.
Much to his relief and delight,
he welcomed a stranger that fearful night.
Resplendent in costume, he did say
he too was going that way,
to the very same soiree...?
By Flora Thompson
Winters chill is in the air,
A glimmer here and a shimmer there!
It's frosty harvest laid out bare,
when winter folk begin to appear.
It's a time for merriment and
for loved ones far and near.
This is that time of year
for all that we hold dear.
by Flora Thompson
So scoot on over to our favorite place , at SpookyTimeJingles and make no haste, or you'll miss all the goodies,cause that would be such a waste....
I'll leave you with a few wips ....

Had a storybook Challenge again this year!!! My doll was my own interpretaion of
Susan Pearson's "Grimericks" Ghoul and Goblin love. I went for a cuter ghoul and green ( what else could he be?) goblin than the scarier ones of Gris Grimly...
and I called mine "Love At First Sight".
It was on display at the Houston International Quilt Show that just passed.
Joyce Patterson took this picture,from the show and I was so excited about
going after speaking with her a few days prior, but it was not to be...
I was unfortunately, not able to go, I was in charge of caring for my sweet grandies while their mama was nursing a flu. None of the grandies came down with the bug, that is except for all of us adults ....
I will be doing a small Christmas show with the group, this Nov. 21st at Holly Hall, here in Houston, my Kris Kringle was used for the invitaions, isn't that grand?
So I've been busy making dolls for the show or at least trying to do as many as I can...

A while back I told y'all that I had sent a doll to Cloth Paper Scissors and they said they were interested in her? Well looky looky ....
Isn't it WONDERFUL???!!!
I was speechless..but only for a nano second, then I emailed some of my friends and family. My run of bad luck is just a distant memory.....:)
I had to show you what a sweet thing my dh did, he came home with this beautiful bouquet of flowers for me , to celebrate my doll being on the cover of the magazine!!!He also brought me some crullers along with other yummy sweets
that I really didn't need but LOVED ... notice the past tense?!!!!:)

What could you do? When a couple of cute little boys turn two?
Welllllll....I would throw a FANTABULOUS, FANTASTICAL,BIG BIRTHDAY BASH, if I had lots and lots of free cash... I would order 3 cakes, cause I DO NOT bake, I'd fill up some jars with gumdrops and gumball and steak?...No No NO!!!A Ginormous big cake with the fish in a bowl and thing one and thing two, I think that should do, don't you?!!!!
But I'd have cookies and sweet drinks and candies GALORE and maybe some more!!!
Next a gigantical pool, filled with big colored balls in red and yellow and blue!!!
And still so much left we could do!!!?
Even a big blow up place to bump in and jump in at once, down and up ,up and down,
till the train came around.
It would be scarey with just me and you, but mommy and daddy would ride with us too!!!
And when that was done, we'd filled up our bellies with YUMMY GOOD cake, we'll open the presents and play a bit more!! Till your mommy and daddy say "Time to go home , this way to the door !!"
So we'll collect all our stuff, with goodies in hand, as we head out the door to our car... we'll all turn to say "We will never forget, all the fun that we had at the best birthday party by far!!"....
My Adorable twin grandies celebrated their 2nd birthday with a Dr. Seuss themed party
that their mom, my crafty and talented daughter, thought up and created ALL by her lonesome!!!!I was so proud and very in awe of her!!! Here she is with Jason her husband.
