This was supposed to be an entry about my first Halloween craft
for the year, something I entered in to with a certain amount of glee.
It seemed like an easy and quick enough paper task, but alas - no.
In its defense, it's not the fault of the craft itself, but the method I chose.
It's hard to believe, but I had never used a glue gun before.
We bought a cheap little thing at a supermarket 6 months ago,
and it's just been sitting in my craft room ever since. And I should have
left it there, but I thought it would be perfect for this craft.
So I plugged it in, put the glue in and pushed. Nothing happened.
I turned up the heat and a little glue came out, but it stiffened before
I could even put two things together. Two seconds later of course,
there was hot glue everywhere, running down the side of the gun,
dripping on everything - gluing random pieces of paper together.
This craziness went on for about 2 minutes, then suddenly something zinged
- and a red and white spark shot from the gun! I couldn't believe my eyes.
I should have kept to my economy bottle of traditional glue...
After all the commotion the paper craft also turned out less sophisticated
than I would have liked. But that is mostly due to the limited
selection of Halloween themed/ colored papers I had in the house.
Though, I guess Halloween doesn't always need to be pretty...
On a entirely different note;
My Mad Tea Party giveaway is still open (until Saturday the 20th).

I have also noticed that I am closing in on 100 followers (Thank you!),
and I'm thinking about stealing an idea from another fabulous blogger friend
- Mme Mortem - and host another (BIG) giveaway when I get there :)
