Arizona bound

Wrapped up some loose ends ( and some chocolates for my class) lol, and I'm ready to head out.

Made up some little goodies for my sis and nieces. ( below)

I used these cute little Halloween stamps from Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage on the tags. Filled the Halloween kittys with candy corn and added a little festive ribbon.

My class kits are packed in the suitcase and ready to go. In this class we'll be doing three separate vintage postcard kits , and the shadow box... so.. I was wondering how to go about keeping all the little pieces that go with each individual postcard kit separate.. so it wouldn't be so confusing to figure out what goes with what. We'll be doing them one at a time.. so here's how I kitted them. Each bag has a different colored ticket on it. This should make it easier.

Here is the shadowbox kit.

Jarad and Kate were here for dinner tonight, so we got to spend some time visiting with them .. which was really nice. I'm grilling every chance I get before winter comes. I could easily grill every night in the summer. It's just so much easier.. not to mention usually healthier... tastes so good.
I'm taking my laptop so hopefully I'll be able to share photos while I'm there. Really looking forward to spending some time with our Arizona family! I know mom is too!

I'm leaving you here to hold down the fort once again.
Just for a bit!

Love the kittie bowls...where did you get them? My treat is on the way, right? You better keep in touch while you are gone. You keep me sane and smiling and I will miss you! Your projects are wonderful.

I adore the little black cat favors. The stamps are wonderful as well. It is so fun to make the harvest season special for children.
