"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?" by Marianne Williamson

Christmas Cards

Friday I was able to make 72 handmade paper Christmas Tree Shapes! My plan is to use some for cards and some for gift tags. So today I started on the cards. I've made this design before without the red background. I wonder... what style is your favorite? With or without the red?

Jack O'Lantern (Fruit Cup)

I saw this idea in a magazine recently. I wish I could remember which one it was. There were so many neat Halloween ideas in it. This is an orange that I hollowed out and filled with chunks of orange, apple and grapes. This is such a neat idea! The saw from a pumpkin carving kits works very well on the orange. If you do decide to do this, the orange pulp you carve out of the inside will be pretty mangled so you might want to have an orange on hand that you can slice into better looking pieces. :) It's a great gift to give to friends or to use for a Halloween party. I wish I would have though to use something bigger like a grapefruit or on a larger scale, a watermelon would probably work nicely!
