hmm..........what is WRONG with this picture?

Here at the W Household we try to do our FHE on Sunday nights because Monday is Hubby's late night.

Tonight we decided to 'make' -by we I mean me and by make I mean frost and decorate- a house for Halloween. I have been wanting to for awhile and we saw a kit in Wal-Mart the other day so we thought it would be fun, and easier than trying to construct one myself.

I don't know if it was an operator error or what but I am sorely disappointed about how our house turned out.

We (meaning me) were not able to do nearly as detailed work as the box promised us. And apparently I need to have some lessons in how to frost. I think it looks pretty sad. Plus it didn't help that the candy ghost was broken before I had finished piping the windows (thanks L). Just for your amusement I have posted a picture of ours and a picture of what we were trying to achieve. yeah. have a good laugh.

Stuffed Pumpkins

I am not sure what has come over me but lately I have such an overwhelming need to be creative and make things. I am very lucky to have a MIL who is the queen of crafty and is very willing to teach me anything I want to know. This week she taught me how to make stuffed pumpkins. I had a great time, and I think they turned out very cute. Plus it was super easy! I have more than these, but these are the only ones completely done.

Before pic of the chosen fabrics.

This one is my favorite.
I don't know what I will do for my next project. Any simple ideas?
