Funnel cakes and ghosts

My hubby wanted a snack tonight so I thought I would make funnel cakes! For some reason they always sound better to me when it's a bit cool out than they do when it is hot. Around here you can usually only get them at the fair. Anyway, I made these from pancake batter! Super easy; I just mix it a little thick and since I don't have a funnel, I used a plastic baggie with a corner cut off so very little clean-up either! Mmmm!! :)

I have been trying to work on Halloween beads and fall things for my Etsy shop, but I seem to have trouble staying on task. Tonight though I did get a trio of candy corn listed and a family of ghosts that are also my entry for the LEST team Halloween challenge. (Click on the LEST logo to the left to go to our page) I think they turned out rather cute! If I were a more creative writer, I could have come up with some little story to tell about why the gray one is laying down while the rest seem to be peering down at him, but my brain is gone on vacation....I wish it would come back!

Inspired by Mallory...

Ok, here are some pics of the disks that I have been talking about that I made from my "shorts" after being inspired to try it by a fellow beadmaker and LEST team member Mallory aka rosebud101.

And here is a picture of one of my first hollow beads! :)

Also, you may have noticed I changed my template. In doing so, I lost my blog list so for those of you who were on it, it isn't that I'm not still interested in what you have to say but that it will take me a bit to get it put back together. That is the one thing I hate about changing templates is loosing everything I put up! :(
