26 days to Hall-o-ween...

Halloween has been sneaking up on me this year and when I woke up and realized it was October already, I knew I had to get my behind in gear for the holiday.

As I mentioned, I'm having a small trick or treating party in the afternoon. (The days of drunken soirees til the middle of the night are over - most of my friends have kids now) Its very casual so I wasn't going to do invitations but then of course I got an idea in my head and had to do it.

Viola - here they are.

Its Xray inspired using a inverted photo of my house. I had to hand cut the black frame with an exacto and that was a major pain. Remind me never to do that again.

I made the very foolish mistake of making too few (and running out of time to make more) so not everyone invited is getting an invitation. Very big faux pas on my part. But Im excusing myself in the following ways: a) It was never meant to even have a formal invitation so who would miss it? b) those people probably don't read my blog.

Hope all of your Halloween plans are coming together!

  4. Who knew such a beautiful limestone could look so sinister in the 'right light'? =) Those are fabulous!
    I hear ya. Gone are the days of drunken debauchery on Halloween. Now we also have to make sure our costumes are G rated, what with all our friends' little kiddos around!
