Paper Pumpkin Wickedly Sweet Treats

It’s been an eventful week; teaching school and getting everything out of the master bathroom so that it could be completely demolished on Friday – yes, we are finally getting our bedroom and bathroom remodeling started! Everything went as planned except for one thing:

Miss Egypt

Egypt – whose middle name ought to be Mischief! We kept our youngest and most curious cat in one of the smaller bedrooms while the workmen did their deconstruction. When they were done, all that was left of the shower stall was the 2″ x 4″ wall framing and the plywood flooring – and a hole where the drain had been, open to the crawl space underneath the house. After the guys left, we let Egypt out of the bedroom, not thinking, “Where will she go first?”

Straight to where she had been kept away from, all morning! A beeline to the hole in the floor. Down under the house. Well, there was no use calling her; cats don’t mind you. We just shut the bedroom door so none of the other cats would follow her down there, and we waited an hour or two. She finally came back out. On her time.

So, it was great that my friend Anna came over today to work on the September Paper Pumpkin kit with me. A good way to relax after a busy week!

We worked on our Wickedly Sweet Treats kits; here are mine all made up and filled with treats for the ladies from church that I Visit Teach monthly. As you can see, Ziggy is checking them out, because he is quite interested in anything to do with “treats.” We wouldn’t have had to worry about Ziggy being able to follow Egypt down the shower drain hole, no matter how exciting that might have been! His ample girth also keeps him confined to the backyard and unable to climb the fence like Eddie (sigh.)

Here’s what Anna decided to do with her Paper Pumpkin kit: as an alternative to the kit instructions she used her materials to make these jaunty scarecrow treat bags! She will also be able to use the eight leftover pieces of fringed kraft paper strung together and decorated to make a Halloween or Thanksgiving banner.

The Paper Pumpkin box pictured is not the usual orange color; that was the October Blissful Bouquet kit that we just got and Stampin’ Up! donated $1.00 for every kit sold this month to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, plus an additional $1.00 for every new subscription in October.
