Halloween at Work

Not a lot of pictures and some people didn't want in on the photos. We played Pin the Tail on the Black Cat, and played a Halloween Bingo game.

Happy Halloween! Some More Humor

Some more fun stuff for today!

Last Night

I decided to get out last night, having received another booster two weeks earlier.  I'm gradually getting back into the mode. Even before COVID hit, I wasn't going out that much. I was last out on Halloween in 2019.

I went to two different celebrations in town, staying at one longer than the other.  I got far too many pictures to include, but here are some.

This is my costume. Taken at home.

Was surprised to see another
the same skirt as mine!

And yet another mermaid!

A lot of Mario Bros costumes
last night.

Liked this shirt.

Scary clown!

Painted Pumpkins and Pumpkin-Face Quesadillas

This was a craft project at the center and food from cooking class for October.  The jack-o-lantern faces were cut out of the tortillas before baking the quesadillas.


This is my pumpkin.

And my quesadilla.

My Handmade Mermaid Bra

I wasn't sure where to find a seashell bra so I searched for ways to do one myself. Most of the ideas I found seemed a bit complicated. I opted not use real shells, so I looked for paper shell templates and found this link  with a free printable template. I enlarged the designs and changed the colors to to find ones I liked. I then mounted the seashell designs onto poster board and punched holes in the top and side of the large shells to insert ribbon for tying. I painted the shells with Mod Podge to make them shiny and then added glitter glue stripes. I then made the starfish (also from the link above) to cover up the holes . They too, were mounted on pasteboard and painted with Mod Podge and glitter. The green ones were decorated with actual green glitter I happened to have, whereas the rest were decorated with glitter glue.

Below is the completed project.
