Chicken Soup With Rice
In October I'll be host
To witches, goblins and a ghost
I'll serve them chicken soup on toast
Whoopy once, whoopy twice
Whoopy chicken soup with rice
- Maurie Sendak

I can't believe it's almost the end of the month.  I have been super busy at home, at work and on scrappy projects. 
. . . and today I have to finish up the grandsons teacher's projects for October so they can go postal tomorrow.

Here are 3 sets that are finished and ready to be packed up. 
I got the spools at JoAnn's along with the dowel sticks that Randy cut in half for me.  I then painted them with black paint, sanded the edges a little and then covered them with paper from Ehco Park; the Apothecary Collection.  I made the little rosettes using the Martha Stewart scoring board (love that thing!) and attached the letters.


  1. omgosh, Joan, these are so stinkin' cute! Very fun and clever, and soooo cute.

  2. Oh Joan! These are freakin' adorable!!! What a great gift.
