Where would we be without the dollar store? Those of us who are on a budget and can't get enough of crafting would be "up a creek without a paddle." As I've said before, I'm not really into Halloween, but I can't help but get on the bandwagon when it comes to crafting. I got several Halloween items from the dollar store in hopes of participating in a few of the parties out there in blogland. I think everyone has gotten the cute little orange pumpkins that are readily available there. The problem is knowing what to do with them so that they end up looking a bit different from all the others. Can you imagine a party where all the dollar store pumpkins showed up and they're whispering to each other saying, "Can you believe it? Look what I've been turned into." Ha! I know I sound crazy, but isn't it fun thinking of ways to make that little orange pumpkin over? I've been racking my brain, and looking at my stash of crafting aids to come up with something. And you know the lover of purple would have to come up with something that involves purple. Yes, that's right, I'm doing something in purple. Please, don't yawn.
A few years ago I made a "purple" dress to wear to my nieces' wedding. It had a lace insert and I had a little bit of the lace left over.
I've always admired the black lace pumpkins out there. Something about the black lace . . . Well, I have purple lace and I decorated my little orange pumpkin and a few tiny little pumpkins, too!
Whew, that's enough purple and orange for now.
