Back home again - but experiencing problems with blogger!

I did have the following message from Denise which may be of help:

I did notice that if I am really fast, I can click in the daily heading for the post, which gets me in where I can comment. Otherwise, that link disappears really fast and I can no longer comment. I have checked on both my laptop and from my regular computer, and it's the same.

And I find I have no problem on my phone - just my computer.

Hope you can access the commenting and linking page.

Look at yesterday's blog for a reminder of the spot prizes...

and some of you know that I usually offer my makes as a giveaway, posting anywhere.
 If you would like my 31DOH book please add one of your Halloween makes to the linky at the bottom...

My idea was to make a book of ATCs this year - combining this with my 'Year of ATCs?'

I made a book, upcycling some packaging and covering back and front with gelli plate pulls.

 I added pages and then started decorating the whole with Tim Holtz ephemera, stickers, embellishments and my ATCs.

Each day I will add a new ATC...

This is today's ATC for Day 29 of 31 DOH, Day 302 of 'A Year of ATCs?':


Base - Black card
Background - Distress Oxides with stencil
Shaping - Tonic ATC Collection Dies
Image - Smeared Ink - another favourite!
Embellishments - Bats - stamps from an unmarked set in my stash, stamped on gelli plate background and cut out.

You might remember the little pegs I made with a few favourite images last year.
Here are two attached to this year's October calendar...

And now... a collage of some of the pictures from yesterday's pumpkin decorating...my daughter carved the one chomping the little pumpkin!

While we were in Australia, we came across a wonderful deli - Tully's on the Mornington Peninsular. Here is their display of Halloween pumpkins:

And here is my version of their bat!!

Happy Hopping!

See you again tomorrow!

    2. I have rearranged by blog page to try and sort out the problems but I don't think that made any difference. The followers button is still not working...

  4. Love the blue cat. he looks
    a little frazzled. Glad

    I guess the gremlins were
    playing around.
