Halloween Season!

It's the 1st of October and the start of Halloween season! Here's a LO using Nikki Sivils Boo-tiful line and following a sketch challenge that was posted for the DT. Check out more LOs and projects using this super fun line at the Nikki Sivils blog.

Title: Spooked

Materials: Nikki Sivils patterned papers, Bazzill cs; Zig & Ranger pens; Ranger distress stickles; Pink Paislee glitter; Ranger embossing powder; Making Memories Slice Spellbound design card

On another note, much of Metro Manila and nearby Rizal province was devastated by Tropical Storm Ketsana (called Ondoy locally). We were lucky to have come out unscathed but a mere 10 minute drive takes us to some homes that are still surrounded by water, 5 days after Manila received the highest rainfall in 42 years!

Everyone is trying to do something to help out, but the hardest part for me is to try to get my kids to understand how lucky they are. They are enjoying their 1-week vacation from school and it irks me that they just do not get it. So today we will be packing up some relief goods here at home to donate to Buddy's office staff who are suffering from the effects of the flood -- at minimum, I hope they learn to be thankful for the capacity to give.

I agree regarding kids not appreciating how lucky they are to have roof over their heads and having food to eat. All they care about is playing and probably what's on tv. Don't worry you're doing a great job by being a good example. Keep it up!
