Happy first Monday of October
there is a fire blaziing in the stove
Pardon my mistakes as I learn how to manuver this awesome little thing.
For the past few years we have hosted a Halloween party for the young people in Selfies class.
Part of the fun is putting together a unique party invitation.
The kids and parents are always excited to see the invites.
These Martha inspired finger invitations (2008)
were made with polymer clay
and boxed pretty ..

Last years invitations were the best.
Although the kids were used to my tricks
they were still surprised when they opened these little take out boxes...
because once opened..
Out popped a creepy ghoal!
This year I was kinda stuck... I had an idea of what I wanted to do
(I needed to up the ante)
and then I saw a wonderful idea over at

I am linking up with my friends Halloween linky party over at Eighteen25
