I sit here on Sunday night like an inert sack of jello.. I am not even sure what to say about this day( 6 hours of meetings, broken down car, dinner with kids, grocery shopping ) besides the fact that I am so glad it is almost over and we are launching into a new week! I know so many people dread Monday's but I love them!... A fresh start, time to try again with a mighty fine chance of getting it right!
The previous week was full to the brim with creative endeavors that will bear fruit over the next few months, some of which I will share over the next week and others that I must keep under wraps for a bit longer ( such a tease I am!).. but I did sneak in a bit of time for some frivolous but fun crafting that I wanted to share with you today!
While it is still hotter than the surface of the sun here in Chattanooga my mind is already straying to Fall and a Halloween party I have brewing in the back of my mind. Perhaps a bit early I know but last year I did not even get out the decorations and everyone was bummed so I am hoping to do it up right this year!
With the party in the back of my mind I was totally drawn to the wonderful crow image that the every wonderful Karen over at the Graphics Fairy had posted up. And while it does say crow I think it looks good enough to pass for a raven and therefore perfect for my hallow-theme.. Edgar Allen Poe
Yes... the Crow is now a Raven.... and looking pretty dang wonderful here on the kraft paper bags that we will be using for party favors! I added the wording since... well you know, it was just too cool not to do it!
I sized and merged the image and then had to play around a bit to get it centered on the bag. In the end I told the printer that it was printing an envelope that was about the size of the bag.. tweaked it a bit more by raising the image above the bag fold and that was about it.
So what do you think?.. does it give you any crafty inspiration?
