I am so mad at Dell!!!

My main computer has been down since before Oct 15th, and Dell still hasn't sent the replacement parts. They promised me on Wed that I would have them no later than Friday. Here it is Sat, and I am still waiting. I did get a package on Fri from Fedex, but it was the wrong addy. I wonder if my parts are sitting in her livingroom waiting to be be picked up again by Fedex and properly delivered?

Computer parts are on their way!

I talked to Dell today, and they promised that my parts would be here within 2 days. Now let's hope it fixes the problem. I will start posting all of the Halloween items I have been working on as soon as I can. I am not sure I will get 31 projects completed, but I am giving it a good try.

My Computer is Down

My computer is down right now, and has been since Monday night. I am on the notebook, but I am unable to post any photos with it. I will continue the 31 Halloween projects as soon as my new parts get here. Hopefully it will not me very long. Meanwhile I am creating more items everyday. I will catch up on my posts as soon as I can.

Halloween Project #11

Here is a card that was made from scraps, and looks it. I don't really like it, but my son does, so maybe someone else will be inspired by it.

Halloween Project #9

Another reprint of a vintage Halloween postcard. I also stamped the background paper to bring it more up to date with the paper designs of now. Then I inked a flower that was terrible dyed in the first place (blotchy), and gave it new life. An orange brad finishes the card.
Stamp: Fiskars' Spooky Frightful set.

Halloween Project #8

This card was made using scraps from another card I made for my mom last year. Yes, I save every scrap and try to use them somehow. What I can't use goes into a recycle bin that I make handmade paper from.
Either way, the scraps get used.

Halloween Project #7

The cutiepie pictured is a reprint of a vintage Halloween postcard. I love using reprints from vintage postcards this way. I usually reduce them in size, and sometimes crop off parts from them.

WCD and Halloween Project #6

I love Halloween so on WCD I had to make at least one Halloween card. Nothing fancy as I still had to have time to make my OWH cards. I will be entering this in Joan's blog giveaway.

The little boy image is a reprint of a vintage Halloween postcard.
Stamps are from Friskars' Spooky Frightful set.

Halloween Project #5

I usualy make more of a Halloween book than card for John.
He never looks at my blog, so let's hope he doesn't change that and peek this time.
Here is one way to use those twinches I made in a previous post:

World Card Day/Stamp Something's Something to Celebrate Challenge

For WCD I played along with Stamp Something's Something to Celebrate Challenge and made a birthday card that will be sent to Operation Write Home. I find it difficult to do much on the size of card they want, so they tend to be more of a simple and clean style.

Sandy is who I send my OWH cards to and she said she needed more male birthday cards. I still added a couple of silver pearls to make it classy, but still more for a male.
