Candy here!…..DIY Halloween sign


Hello fine people….

So love this time of year!

Working on these cute signs to hang about until the fright night itself rolls around.

It is actually a variation on the boo blocks of last year, but with added wire attached and used ephemera for the background.IMG_7813

I used the  Letter M press app for the letters and pointing finger…..I printed directly on the antique dictionary page and distressed with stamping ink.

Have a “sweet” rest of your Sunday!


It’s Almost Halloween….{variations on a theme}

Ok…it is almost that day….the day when our children  increase the dentist bill by 75%.


For us moms that have been justly or unduly labeled “creative”….we have no choice, but to be so.

No store bought costumes will do.  Decorations?  Handmade also.

So here is some variations on themes that the Highnote has done in the past to help assuage the urges to buy anything plastic or made in China this Halloween.



Paint scraps of block wood orange and black.  Use your StayzOn ink and stamp a bunch of these cuties to adorn your table or treat stand.   Click here for the original.



Rip up strips of linen stamp with StayzOn ink and hot glue to a votive or other candle holder.

Using computer iron-on transfer paper is so user friendly that you can put your image on almost anything!

Download a vintage Halloween image from the computer and put it on a tea towel or make a treat bag out of old napkins.   The above images came from A Day in the Life of Jennay on her printable Tuesdays.   Check it out!

So you get the Friday How-2 on a Thursday eve this week!!!  How lucky is that?   Have a great weekend!  dcb
