day 4

Smeared and Smudged 31 days of Halloween day 4!!! wahoo baby is feeling better! that was a terrible terrible thing...worst two and a half days ever...I felt so helpless...thanks for all your comments you guys rock!

ok so onto why your here....I have created some lil Halloween containers take a look

aren't they cool?!? the stamps are from third coast (speaking of did you see my domino yesterday on the Sharpie queen blog....kinda cool huh?) anyways so I took some regular paper and soaked it in coffee then tore the edges and let it dry then dipped the edges in again, then stamped my images, wrote what ingredients I was planning on putting in there...then tied it with some coffee dyed cheesecloth.

I love making these! and these are only the first of my set...more to come :)


now off hopping you go...don't forget to start at Terra's and end at Pam's the list is on my side bar ---->
