Lonnnnng post.. get ready.. get set... GOOOOO

Sorry in advance for the extra long post you are about to see... Lots of stuff going on...and I promise if you read far enough into the post you'll see my crafty late night stuff from last night! :)

Okay, first.. Tag-I'm it! Carol over at Crazy for Crafting tagged me to put up 7 facts about me, here goes.

1. I'm a Libra and I just turned 28!
2. I was in the Army for a total of 8 years as a Human Resources Specialist
3. I am NOT a morning person AT ALLLLLLL--which will probably have you asking how I made it in the Army.. well when someone is yelling at you at 4 in the morning, you're inclined to just get up so they can shut up... :)
5. I love to paint and draw but can never seem to find the time for it
6. I am secretly making something for my sisters for Christmas this year! It's going to be GREAT!
7. I would do absolutely, positively ANYTHING on this green Earth for any one of my family members, they mean the Galaxy to me! (You know cause the Galaxy is wayyy bigger than the World)

So upon being tagged, doing my tag duties and passing on the tag, I now tag.... Nancy Face, Ms. Sassy Sasha and Lauren, now tag on sisters, tag on! :)

Other news... my blog candy will be a suprise, maybe it will be when I hit 2950 hits on my blog, or maybe when I hit 3000, or maybe it will be at 3101. You just never know, but the only ones that will be entered are the Non-lurkers, the ones that leave real, actual comments! :) yay...

Okay the next story is long but FUN nonetheless. We were sitting watching TV last night about 9:30ish and the door bell rang. Hummm who could it be??? I sent the husband to go check it out, and who is there??? NOBODY! NOBODY at all can you believe it? BUT, they left a gift, (imagine picture here) it was a halloween cup, filled with candy and a scarecrow on a stick, with a paper attached that read:

The "Phantom Ghost" has come to town to leave you some goodies, I see you have found.
If you do not wish a curse to fall, continue this greeting, this "Phantom" call.
First post this "Phantom" where it can be seen, and leave it there until Halloween.
This will scare other Phantoms who may visit, be sure to participate, don't be a fis-bidget.
Second, make 2 "Phantoms" and 2 notes like this, deliver them to 2 friends who may have been missed.
Don't let them see you, be sneaky, no doubt, and make sure they put their Phantom Ghost out!
Next, you only have ONE DAY to act, so be quick!
Leave it at doors where the Phantom hasn't hit!
Deliver at dark, when there is no light.
Ring the doorbell and run, stay out of sight!!!
At last, but not least, come join in the season.
Don't worry, be happy, you need no reason.
Be cool, have fun, and remember don't be seen.. and share in the spirit of HALLOWEEN!!!!!!

My first question is... Am I the only one that has never seen this??? If you have let me know cause it's new to me. Second, what is a fis-bidget? Welllll.. my neighbors are.. shall we say... creative in more ways than one. I think I know who put it there and she's all about fun and games and it's neat that our neighborhood is getting involved and keeping morale up so to speak, but ONE DAY??? I mean really??? ONE DAY??? hahaha.. just kidding, I won't complain and I won't go all Humbug on you so lastnight I made these lovely door hangers which I will fill up with candy and a mini scarecrow. :)

This is a 12x12 paper, rolled into a cone, I tore off the edge so you can see the white under the orange, more Halloweenish I guess.. haha :) just go with me here..
You can see where I drew a web inside the cone, very spooky, right? :) Well I used the Cricut to cut out the BOO and the black tags they are on. I used some orange $1 ribbon as the holders, so I can easily put them around the door knob, ring the doorbell and run like the dickens! DARN.. times like this I wish I was in better shape! haha
This is the back/side of the cone. Bad picture I know but I'm still using the Blackberry to do this stuff.. sorry... but if anyone would like to get me an early Christmas present... NIKON D80 please... :) So I also cut out the black asteric looking flowers that are behind the orange flowers on the Cricut as well.
I added the letters to the tags with a glue stick, and then added a little straw stuff to one of the tag holes on each letter.
The flowers are primas and I used the cropadile to add the centers and make them all stay on the cone.
These little guys took the longest of all, I had to free hand 4 of them, 2 for each cone and I only adhered them in the middle so the batty wings can look like they were flying! :)
So there you have it, that's what I'll be doing tonight... riiiiiight after I get home from taking my girls to see High School Musical 3! Lord help me! :)

Great idea on the door hangers. I might just have to steal your ideas and use them as goodie bags.

Lena said...

Never heard of this! Fun! I looked up "fis-bidget", and I can only find references to it in that very same poem. What the heck does it mean? I love what you made! CUTE! Isn't there a name for the hanging cone shape? Something like a tussie mussie? I'm not sure. Anyway . . . I love it! Have fun! I will be expecting a review of HSM3. I bet your girls are going to LOVE it! I'm not sure we'll see it in the theatre. We'll probably wait for the DVD release. Yes, I'm cheap! Have a great weekend!!

Oh yeah, thanks for playing along with the tag!!

Elvis is awesome! :)

Your door hangers look great! :)

Thanks for the tag...I can never think of anything to say, so I save tags in my drafts folder for a few weeks or months, then eventually I REALLY DO get around to doing them! :)
