Halloween Inspiration

Earlier this month I was remembering a post I saw a few years ago by papercrafter Michelle Wooderson from http://michellewooderson.blogspot.com/. She gathered up all of her related supplies (stamps, paper, embellishments) for a holiday and put them together to be her inspiration station. I was in the mood to do this for Halloween, partly to see just what the heck I had collected over the years and then to actually use it! It was kind of fun to see it all in one spot and I did end up making a few things.




Here are some tags that I made:


and a little shadow box:


All made for no particular reason, just for the fun of crafting after being inspired by my stash. What inspires you? I would love to hear!

You always make the cutest things! I especially like the little pumpkin tag, with the newsprint backing. I haven't really done any Halloween crafting... all my spare time is taken with the Christmas projects and baby blankets I'm working on.

Cindy, I do that at times but Im afraid to say I have way too much stuff, so I am going to keep listing items I'm handcrafting and vintage goodies both on Ebay and Etsy. You know what I am feeling real good Dr's appt Wed so we will see what he thinks today was my first outing to an Estate Sale, very mellow I was #15 on the list and they let the first 15 in gotta love that!
