Dotted-Swiss Ghosts

You've got to get up every morning
With a smile on your face
And show the world
All the love in your heart
(Carole King - from "Beautiful" lyrics)

Really enjoy doing crafts, adding to my store of decorations. These are some of the "ghosts" Felicity, Mack and I created from paper bowls, fishing line, glue, duct tape and old material I had in my closet. Every time the wind would blow, the dogs could see them through the windows in the door and sidelights and set off barking. It was a noisey couple of days but so, so worth it, especially the moment when Flea realized they were save-worthy and would be brought out NEXT year. The look on both of their faces - now, that is when I wish I had my camera in my hand.
Cool black and white! I like your POV.

@loragill thanks! i actually didn't take it in b&w, it just looks that way due to the processing. it is so much fun doing crafts with the kids. used to do them all the time with my children - now i am doing them with my grandchildren when them are here after school or when school is off for the day.

@henrir i saw them in a magazine and then we butchered the instructions and made them our own. i often do that with recipes, too - so often they are bland. the children liked making the faces and we bought paper bowls instead of plastic ones that were originally called for.

@claireuk i believe it is a toss-up, Claire, as to who enjoys it more. we had a great time. we also made spider webs from the duct tape. even mike's tank got decorated. they used the entire roll of tape - malcolm had taken his knife and cut it down the middle so the 1/4" roll went a very long way. my house was covered.

@sarasdadandmom idle hands - no good for anyone. my stepmom used to always tell me the best medicine when you are down is to wash your face, put on something nice even if you aren't going any place and DO SOMETHING you like.
