SORRY.....

OLD TEMPLATES AND FILES
I am sorry but I can no longer send out any templates, poems etc. that I may have previously offered in the past, the files were lost when my last computer crashed and I have chosen not to remake any of them them.

Ghostly Halloween Lollies

Oh my life, this seemed such a simple but effective idea when I found it on Google http://blog.makezine.com/ghost-lollies.jpg. But making cute ghost lollies is definitely NOT my forte!!! I seem to have turned them into the stuff of nightmares!!!!! These are just too spooky and would probably traumatise any little Trick or Treaters, who may happen upon my doorstep, for life ......

A ghost without a mouth isn’t quite right….. I think the eyes are too big. But add a mouth, and it takes on a terrifying persona.

I’ve used little Chupa Chups lollies ….. they are so cute, well ……. they were cute until I got hold of them! If I give these out at Halloween I’ll be branded as "The streets’ resident lady of evil” and given a wide berth in the Post Office and Chip Shop!  Back to the drawing board........

LOL... I did these last year - made hundreds of the little b*ggers and I know what you mean... it seemed such a good idea at the time!! I used magic marker for the eyes and mouths in the end and yep... the kids loved them!!
