[do you need a laugh?]

[Halloween chalkboard tags ...plus a bonus Thanksgiving tag]

Halloween is my least favorite holiday due to all the evil horror stuff you see everywhere. I like the creative, cute side of Halloween only. I feel bad for the sensitive kids who are scared to death on Halloween (I happen to know one such sensitive girl). It always feels so nice to prepare for Christmas after Halloween is done.
But I'm trying to get into Halloween mood nonetheless. 
I made some tags that you can use for gift bags (I cut them with a 3" circle cutter) or perhaps as cupcake toppers (I'd use a 2" circle cutter)
If you'd like a Microsoft Word document of all these tags, just leave a comment with your e-mail address. I won't post your e-mail address comment.
For personal use only.

We already had our Thanksgiving but I know it's still coming up in the States. Made this bonus Thanksgiving tag just for you.

[totem poles]

Let's get one thing straight... 
If there is a totem pole - you must take a photo of it! 
I sure did during our summer vacation to Vancouver/Whistler.
One of these is not a totem pole though. Can you tell which one?

[fall leaves]

Today was Thanksgiving here in Canada. I printed fall leaves on cardstock paper and we decorated them with markers (opaque markers work the best for dark leaves). It's kind of crazy to be decorating fall leaves because we actually have SNOW on the ground. I so wasn't ready for snow yet! Last year we had a barbecue for Thanksgiving. Those were the days... :)

[light amidst darkness]

Tim Ballard is one of my heroes. His organization Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) saves children from sex slavery around the world. My heart breaks just imagining the utter darkness he witnesses during the rescue operations. I don't know how they can even find the strength to do the work they do. But they must do it. Who else will save these children?

I tried to link up a recent video posted on O.U.R.'s Facebook page but couldn't do it. In the video, Tim and his friend talk about 8 things we all can do to have light inside us no matter how dark it is outside. I wish I could share that video here. It can help anyone who is suffering from any kind of darkness whether it's depression or other mental illnesses, loss of a loved one, chronic illness, abuse, addiction, etc. 

If this sounds like something you need to see, please go to Operation Underground Railroad's Facebook page and check out the video that was posted on September 14th.

I have been using Arbonne products for years now. I love them! They are the reason why people don't believe me when I tell them I'm almost 50 years old. To me, the RE9 product line is so much better quality than any department store skin product line I have used. I highly recommend Arbonne. Your skin will thank you.

I decided to become an Arbonne consultant so that I can get the products with a better discount. So if you live in USA, Canada, UK, Australia, Poland or New Zealand and are interested in these products, just leave me a comment with your e-mail address (I won't publish it) and I can tell you how you can order these products with a 20% discount.

You are worth it!

[cards for teacher]

I can't believe summer is almost over. I'm not excited about school starting. I will miss our mellow summer mornings especially. 
I saw some great teacher quotes online and decided to make cards.
A while back I saw a HUGE eraser that said "FOR BIG MISTAKES" at a local bookstore. Hope they still have them as it would be a perfect back-to-school teacher gift with this card.

This card of course goes with a nail polish gift.
