And there I was thinking that when the children went back to school I’d have more time! I’m now in major clear out mode which is probably a result of the house being an absolute bomb site for the 8 weeks of the summer holiday. That and we’ve been reallocating rooms to new functions and generally wiping the slate clean in certain areas.

Anyhow, moving on :) The start of the new school term always has me turning my mind to autumn and the upcoming holidays. So I thought I’d experiment on some Halloween treat containers. Although Halloween isn’t widely celebrated in the UK our neighbourhood likes to be an exception to the rule and we have over a hundred little visitors to our door. Of course I do like to inject a little craftiness into my treat bags :)

I loved this mummy from There She Goes Hauntingly Delightful set last year and I can see he’s going to be making an appearance again this year too. I had a ball making this treat container and it didn’t take me long but I think I’m going to need to design something simpler for mass production :)
