I Put A Spell On YOU!

From the side...

I've been trying all day to post and for some odd reason Blogger wouldn't let me! I found this fun potion looking container at Hobby Lobby. It's filled with bright green Sixlets (which I also purchased at HL) with random blue Skittles to match the tag.

Cancer Blows!

Since Breast Cancer Awareness Month is October, this project totally counts in the daily Fall projects! Question is...have you scheduled your mammogram yet?

This project just might be the "pick-me-up" someone fighting cancer needs to brighten their day because cancer does blow!

A Little Corny...

Where did the week go? I had mentioned I was going to post daily Fall projects due to a challenge given to me. Sorry the days slipped away! I made a set of these corny guys and took pictures earlier in the week. I immediately ate the candy corns without waiting to download the pictures. Let's just say I polished off the whole bag of these yummy (are they really yummy? or just nostalgic? I think it's B) candy corn. The pictures were terrible! So off I went to the store to buy yet another bag. (Just wait until you hear my owl project story, but that's another day). I was very tempted to eat them again. But I resisted! Finally! These are super easy, yet super fun!

Here's a close up.

DDS SpookTastic Challenge

Did you pick up this awesome Halloween freebie from Dustin Pike/Doodle Dragon Studios? If not, be sure to go snatch her up before she vanishes!

Snow fell here in Utah this week. Quite depressing. But it does mean Halloween is just around the corner! It did helped me get in the mood for this week's Doodle Dragon Studios Challenge, so I guess there is one positive to it. Now it's your turn to get in the Halloween mood. Select your favorite Doodle Dragon Studios image and create something SpookTacular with Halloween colors! Then link it to the challenge by Sunday, October 18th.

This cutie is actually 4 layers, if you count her vellum wings.

One of my followers challenged me (thanks Cari) create 31 Days of Halloween like I did for 14 Days of Valentines. If I would quit eating the treats before I finish the project that would be fantastic!!! Obviously, it won't be the 31 Days of Halloween, but check back to see the Halloween/Fall projects I come up with this month.

Kookies with the K-9 Contest

Dustin Pike/Doodle Dragon Studios does it again! Don't you love the AWESOME dog?! It's perfect for our school's Kookies with the K-9 contest! This is the display that greets you as you walk in the main doors.

What's a Kookies with the K-9 contest, you ask? As you may remember, I am the Ongoing Fundraising Coordinator at our school. The goal of this contest is to get the students to actually turn in all the ongoing fundraising items they have collected over the summer. Points are given to each thing such as Box Tops, Campbell's Labels for Education, My Coke Rewards, ink cartridges, linking store cards to our school, joining the PTA, parents "Like" our PTA facebook page and becoming a "Follower" on the PTA blog. Plus weekly bonus point opportunities. The top three classrooms with the most points at the end of the contest wins a Cookie Party with our city policeman and his trusty K-9 companion. At the party, the police officer will give a short assembly of a K-9's job on the police force then eat cookies! The kids are freaking out over this contest! What's crazy is the older grades are more excited about this contest than the younger grades.

Each week the class that earns the most points (for the past week) receive this "Top Dog" trophy in their classroom all week and have a special "Top Dog" week winner poster to hang up in the hall. The classroom/teacher also receives a big shopping bag full of school supplies. (Weird, I didn't take a picture of that yet). The classrooms are really funny about their posters. They will keep them up all year.

Here's one of our 5th grade classes proudly showing their posters. They won two weeks in a row.

Oddly enough...the 5th grade class next door won the next week. We still have two more weeks before the contest is over.

The awesome K-9 with cookies image is on all my weekly flyers and Box Tops collection sheet too. LOVE IT! Thanks Dustin!

Operation Write Home Blog Hop with Christmas Candy

Ho! Ho! Ho! Thanks for stopping by today! The Operation Write Home Christmas Blog Hop has been amazing so far!

Can you believe it's only 85 days until Christmas? I am lucky to be surrounded by family and friends during the holidays. But I know how hard it is to have loved ones far away. My sister served in the Air Force and my brother in the Army. I remember we would count the days until we were to see each other again. I support Operation Write Home because I am thankful for the sacrifices so many families give to our country. Hopefully, my cards will put a smile on someone's face, making the miles and days seem closer to those they love.
