We are up to our eyeballs in flying monkey's right now getting ready for our Oct 25 Bash. This year, like last I found myself off to a very late start again. Every year more things seem to get added into the cauldron and before you know it, the thing is boiling over!

It's starting to come together, with a good solid week ahead of me and lots of late nights---I think I just might pull this thing off.

This years invitation. A dark version of the "Somewhere Over" lyrics scrolled up, a Dorothy tag (with the party details on the back), a yellow brick, yes a real brick, some tulle, twisted string and a plastic spider ring.

60 bricks required two cans. I did not clean the bricks first. I thought the dirt, aging and moss on some of them "added" to the effect. All sides except the bottom got misted.

I don't understand why all of my photos upload incorrectly... but here are a couple of today's projects.

The "no place like home" mirror is one of my favorite things so far.

The tin man is a painted pumpkin.

The straw sofa winds in and out of the stalls.

Completely taped off the floor with recycled card board and making tape and then hand sponged the yellow brick road. I will blood splatter it this evening to dry over night.

And I still can't figure out why my photos won't load straight. ....

Suggestions?

Silhouette flying monkey take one.
I am really trying hard this year to use recycle material to re purpose.

On my lay off things to do before the party this Saturday I have that I planned to make 4 more of these in different poses....that is still to be decided.

I also got a few more signs done and the preliminary gates to the Emerald City.

Card board, black spray paint, spray adheasive, and dryer lint.
