Haunts and Horrors

Whew! What a week I've had. 4 out of the last 5 days I've had someone else's vomit on me.  Usually at 2 in the morning.  And there's no stomach flu in our house, just a genetic fail as I comfort my son dealing with my lifelong stomach issues. While it leads to certain philosophical ponderings such as "How can tiny people's tiny stomachs produce such volume?" but mostly it just leads to exhaustion.  Top it off with the continuing woes of a hypersensitive kindergartener, and I'm wiped out.  Every night once the boys are settled I melt onto the couch and lose myself on Petfinder. The loss of my little dog last Winter has morphed in recent weeks into a gaping hole begging to be filled.  Hence, Petfinder. Sweet, sweet Petfinder.
 Anyway, as the brooding kindergartener requires daily creation, and his Halloween obsession has only grown over the years, we've made a few things.  As you can see the mantel is in Halloween chaos.  Beckett has made more air-dry clay ghosts, this time with googly eyes.
 And we made these yarn ghosts.  So cute.  Becks had a problem with the faces, getting them just exactly how he wanted them.  Sharpies bled too much and the yarn moved too much to draw, glue was too sloppy for him.  So we found that cutting features out from adhesive backed felt and sticking them to the yarn bodies worked the best.
We just wound two kinds of white yarn, varying texture and width, around a cardboard rectangle until it was sufficiently puffy.  Then we tied it at the top, cut the yarn at the bottom, then cut a few of the top layer strands because why not give ghosties rediculous hair dos? We had 3 cardboard rectangles to make different sizes.
And if that's not enough spooks and haunts for you, check out this shadowy phantasm that swiped a spoonful of pumpkin cookie dough out of my mixing bowl.
