Frankenstorm's a coming!
So as the saying goes "When you are given scraps, make a quilt!", I decided to make little snacks for everyone at the retreat and make a party of it. I remembered that one of the stamp sets I got from my friend Joan had a Frankenstein in it - very cute I might add! So I went to work. I made little tags with the Papertrey Lmitless Layers dies, stamped with the Paper Smooches Frankenstein and colored with copics. I added little flags to the tags saying "Happy Frankenstorm", and googly eyes to Frank. I attached these to little paper bags filled with chocolate covered peanut clusters. I was going to label them "bat droppings", but just ran out of time. Here's a picture of the individual bag, and then the basket full of 34 of them! They are soooo cute!
As I write this, it occurs to me that someone may think I am making light of the storm and not taking it seriously. Actually, I have thought a good bit about not even going to the retreat and hunkering down at home. After much thought though, I have decided to go and leave my fate to God - He's in control. So I'll let you know how it turns out next week - Susan :)
