My fantastic family went away for the weekend.
What did I do you wonder.
Did I do the laundry?
Did I clean the dirty bathrooms?
Did I mop the sticky floor?
You so no I didn't.
I did all of these fun things instead. So-I loved this cute paper-orange with cute witch shoes/plaid on the other side. I had to do something with it. Something that I could see all the time. Cause I need more Halloween crap! Why did I make three plates? Well, the big one is mine, and the two small ones are gifts. The best part about this little craft-it was FREE! Just goes to show it pays to hoards craft supplies!
This is my witching hour clock. I didn't have to redo the numbers-they were already spooky/orangey looking! Sweet!
I don't know if I love it, there is just something about it that bugs me. What do you think?

So-my kids bring home so much crap every single day. Between their papers and the mail-Mom has got paper overload! I have been meaning to do this for a while now-just never got around to it. I told myself I would get it done this weekend if it killed me! I picked up the clipboards at the di-$1.00 each. I did have 3-not too sure where the other one is. Dang-guess I'll have to go thrifting again!

See that cute little yellow thing? What is it you ask? An old mailbox! This was a $1.00 too! It was white with tape marks all over it (guess you can't ask for too much-it was only a buck) I couldn't get the sticky stuff off. So-I covered it with paper. It did say MAIL-right there on the bottom-but I didn't like the looks of it when I sprayed it. So-I covered it! Now the bills have a pretty place to live.

Now-everything how has a place. This should mean that my kitchen should never be dirty again!


Guess I'll clean tomorrow. Unless of course the cleaning fairy comes tonight. Keep dreaming Taush-keep dreaming!

Ahem!!!! You were supposed to go to dinner with me! I love the stuff you made. My weekend was way less fun than that (but my house is clean) We'll try again next week.

What a fun and busy weekend!!!

beth at aunties said...

Talented and Creative one~ It looks like you were busy. Let me know if they really control all the paper mess and I will be an invester. We have way too many papers around here and our kids are grown:)

I enjoyed your halloween cuties!

Oops I got to get to the dollar store and get me a couple of clipboards and do those for Christmas gifts...bravo Tausha!

Lori said...

Nice job. You are way ahead of the game - I'm just starting to collect halloween stuff. Not one of my favorite holidays. I guess I could probably start making stuff but for me - it't just so much easier to buy it!

Shannon said...

You are so crafty!! I love the plates and clipboards!! So cute!

PS I only put stuff on my backporch because you can see straight out there from the french doors in our kitchen. :)

Darlene said...

Hey Tausha,
I absolutely LOVE all of your crafty creations!! The witching hour clock is my FAVORITE!! You are definitely a crafty DIVA!! I don't care what your hubby says!!

Oh, and after the cleaning fairy comes to your house send them my way...deal?!?!

Valarie said...

Thatnks for stopping by! I love the plates, and I love the clipboards and mail box. Actually I love everything. :) I have been meaning to do the clipboards just have not gotten around to them yet.

I got my pumpkins at Old Time Pottery the little ones were 4.99 and the two big ones were 9.99. I didn't even want to spend that much on the big ones, but since there were only two and I had been pricing them for $20.00 a piece I figured might as well go ahead. I can't believe they are so high where you are.

AJ said...

Love Love Love your projects!! I think the witch clock looks fine just the way it is! And the clipboards-I've been wanting to make some for years. Have the stuff just haven't gotten around to it. Where are you going to put yours? That's part of my dilemma! Oh, and I'm guessing the cleaning fairy missed my house. We did have the tooth fairy last night though:)

Good luck with that cleaning fairy thing.

Jessica G. said...

Halloween is my favorite! And if you don't like the clock...I'll take it! :)

At a craft show I went to this weekend, they had long boards with three clips and the words "Look What I did!" I thought that was a cute way to display homework/art projects.

Chelsie said...

could you send the cleaning fairy (aka marci) over my way after? jk...glad you had a nice weekend my dear, good to see you the other day, love ya

The Huffies said...

LOVE everything...especially my new plate that has a prestigious spot right in my kitchen...seriously though, you made my day and I love ya for it! I'm so glad to have such a crafty friend...now if you could just rub off on me we'd be in good shape!

Lorie said...

Cute stuff! Thanks for sharing!

Joy said...

My goodness you have been one very, very busy crafting lady! And every single project looks wonderful!!!
Maybe I need my family to leave so I could get some things accomplished.

Wendy said...

You've got some lovely things here! I've made some clipboards for my kiddso when school started this year, but now I see I have to go find me an old mailbox too. HOW CUTE IS THAT?

If I can still find the owl towel that I gave Jen, I will send you one ;) Although it is not a secret that they are at Target and like 2 bucks! If you can't find it at your Target I'll see if ours still have them!

Heather said...

I got some clipboards at the dollar store too wanting to do what you did. How do you get the paper to fit nicely around the clip part. Know what I mean?

hadfam5 said...

Very cute stuff, you are very creative. How have you been? it's been forever since I have seen you. Love the blog, I just started mine a month or so ago. Keep in touch, shauna.

Shiloah Baker said...

Wow, I'm totally impressed! Way to go!

Meg said...

I LOVE those clipboards! To answer your question about what kind of books to use for the paper pumpkins, they need to be fat. Because the "spine" of the book must be able to curl into a circle if that makes sense. I love your blog and will enjoy reading it.
