Halloween Star

I finished my Halloween decoration that I mentioned from this list. It was a fun transformation from this:

To this:

Much better me thinks.

The spooky, yet classic new My Minds Eye line was just itching to make this star a show stopper. I even got to use glitter modge podge for the first time and I must say, I enjoyed it. It added just a subtle sparkle that I totally dig.

Now, if I could just have this perfect door on my house Fall, that would be great.

My good friend was recently over at my house for a minute and when she left, she couldn't help but laugh at me. I was spray painting outside, tasseling downstairs, cutting fabric in the front room and sewing in the kitchen. She can relate. She's always doing something. What about you? Do you project hop or are we the only ones suffering from project attention disorder?

That looks great. I definatly need to search the thrift store for a barn star now! Funny about the project hopping, at sewing club last night I was talking with my friends wondering if I waste too much of my life on "projects" and not enough life!

Wow - I need to find a star too I'm sure you got it on sale clear back in July, right? I really love it - great job! And my Halloween tassels are itching to share their space with my other Halloween decor, maybe I'll just have to find my way down to my Halloween bins as my 'project' today!

This star is really great! I've never been much for halloween, so I don't have a lot of decorations, but your stuff is really cute! It might make me change my mind.
