=) What Fun! I found some really cute Halloween fabric at Joanne's and put together these Trick or Treat bags for the kids. It's basically a pillow case (was there anything better to use as a kid?) with a tie near the top. Really easy and I am very happy with how they came out. My fave is the googlie eyes, but the purple with owls is a great fabric.

I had mentioned to Louie that I wanted to learn how to make a teapot in pottery class... so, sure enough, last night she mentions it to Franni. I was in the middle of throwing something else, but as soon as I was done I was set with the task of throwing a sphere for my teapot - and then the lid. Being 5'5 and rather round I have an affinity toward teapots, no small thanks to the teapot jingle - "i'm a little teapot, short and stout.." which is a fine song for one's niece to learn when she's in preschool and not so fine for one's 20 year old nephew to sing while patting you on the back. Hrumph... But, there it is.
Having given it some thought, I'm gong to devise a way to put a speaker in the lid (like those singing Hallmark cards). When you open the lid the song will play... - my voice, singing, "I'm a little teapot, short, dark and handsome..."
