Halloween is on the Horizon

Yes, yes, I know its not the 1st yet but I really can’t help myself.

I have had some fun the past few weeks.  TRYING to get into fall.  Even tho the first day of fall was almost 100*  :(

I made a super cute BOO banner.  Cousin did a class at her LSS in Stockton.  I'm glad I went it was super fun.


Look at all that Yummy goodness!  The new Basic Grey there is glimmer mist and cute little skull beads! It was so much fun.   I think Cousin has a few kits in her Etsy so hit her up if you love it as much as I do.

I also saw a super cute template on Martha’s site.  Its for a little coffin candy box.. I really like it I'm pretty happy at how it came out and I think I'm going to make up a few for a party.. I could put treats and stuff in them I guess.. I hate that I make cute stuff and don't have a use for it.. Its a bit lop sided but Eh, its for Halloween so who cares…



So there you have it some fun stuff.. I need to get my kids out to the pumpkin patch for some pictures.  I cant wait for the weather to cool down!

Ok if you are like me then you were wondering what the difference was between the new fall glimmer mist colors of.. Pumpkin Pie, and Jack-o- Lantern, Raven, and Cinder and just what does Haunted shadows look like?  I have the Blog post for you!


Ok I first bought some of the fall colors the day they were out.  I got Carmel apple, Cinder, Pumpkin pie, and Indian corn.  I like cinder and Pumpkin pie but then found that Tattered Angels made a Halloween stencil  pack.. Those colors were Haunted shadows, Jack-o-lantern, and Raven..

I wrote to Tattered angels asking what the difference was.. and NEVER got a reply.. I wanted to know if it was just slight change or heck the same colors in but different names..


so here we go Ill tell you what I see.

Haunted shadows is a purplish color with gold or coppery  glimmer.

Indian corn is a red plum color..with a coppery shimmer

Cinder is Black with a bluish purple  shimmer

Raven is I would say is a Deep blue, navy even.. with a bright purple glimmer

Jack O Lantern is Warm orange with kind of a green copper shimmer

Pumpkin Pie is a bit more orange with a copper shimmer

Carmel apple is a tan color with a warm copper shimmer.

IMG_4360 jack-o-lantern shimmer


so there you go, some of the new fall colors for you to compare.  My biggest complaint with Tattered angels is of the sample colors of their products.  I also do not like how they do not tell you the color of the shimmer.  I know its hard to photograph this stuff. But that is all the more reason to post the colors of the shimmer..

But I'm kind of a nerd that way .

I hope I can help others anyway

In the morning I'm going to go be on Good Day Sacramento.  I entered a Pizza building contest .. I made it to the top 5!!
