A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN WOYWW #178!

Good Morning, Wednesday!
 
I know it's not a happy day for everyone.  Wish I lived closer so I could help.
 
It's finally Halloween!  I hope you come by the Playhouse today and show me your costume!  I can't wait to see all the adorable little Tricker Treaters tonight!
 
But first, it's time for the Julia Dunnit Show over at What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday (WOYWW) where I show you my desk, then you show me yours, then you move to the right and down and I'll move to the left and up, and so on and so further.
 
Thus, here is mine:
 

You can see the Dee Breeze I created in making yesterday's cards, which were super fun to make using my new spider die.  Talk about waiting until the last minute.  It's all the usual stuff and puff I use to practice my witchcraft.
 
~~~
 
Oh, man, is it ever nice to be finished with my big project at work so I can go back to being on-call.  I suppose it wouldn't be polite to change my phone number.
 
Having said that, I am heading back to the office today, but only for the annual festive Halloweenie dressing up we do.  As a refresher, let me remind you that I have featured a small pillow in my costumes for the last couple of years.  Here is said ordinary pillow:
 

In 2010, it was used as a beer belly in my Paul Bunyan get-up:
 
 
In 2011, it was used as bazooms in my Dolly Parton get-up:


And here I am in 2012:

What am I?  An aged Glamour Girl?  A vampiress going to the Prom?  Where is the pillow?  Has she gone bonkers this time for reals?
 
 
Well, where else could the pillow go? 


In case you haven't figured it out, I'm Kim Kardashian's grandmama!  Now you can see who she inherited her "junk in the trunk" from!

 
Bwahaha!  That pillow has come in handy!  And, this year, so did the "Mother-of-the-Groom-Dress" I wore at DS and DDIL's wedding 11 years ago! 
 
Off I go to the office to see what everyone else has dressed up as.  Then I'll come back and see what you guys are doing.  Enjoy your tricks and treats today and your WOYWWing!  

As always, thank you for stopping by to visit.  Special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower or leave a comment.  I'll return the flavor!

ROFL!! Love those pics - especially with the feature pillow. Sadly, I wouldn't actually need one of those!! I have the real thing :) I thought you were Morticia Addams in the last shot - I always wanted to be her when I was little. Gomez was my first real crush, I thought he was wickedly (and weirdly) sexy!!!!
Hugs, LLJ #68 xx

Annie said...

I'm sat reading my WOYWW blogs on my sick bed this week but have my mask on so you don't catch anything. I'm enjoying reading what everyone is up to this week [it's better than reading magazines :-) ]. I'm leaving a copied comment so you know I've called by because my hands are too weak and shaky to keep typing out my comments this week.
Big hugs,

This had me giggling and I didn't need a drink to do it. This is so funny if a pillow could talk, wow and all the places it has been, if only. LOL

Happy Halloween and Happy WOYWW

Happy Halloween Darnell ! Your costumes are great and I'm pleased with myself, I guessed that you were Kim Kardashian (not her grandma) and where the pillow was added.

Have fun ! Shirleyx

Ok the desk is still just way to neat. So I can't show you mine. Maybe email only . Hope you had fun.

Karen said...

Hi Dippy.......lovely WOYWW photo; very tidy despite the Dee Breeze visiting after your spooktacular halloween card making. Fabby photos of your outfits.......I'n now wondering where that pillow can go next year!!! lol Love your buggy photos - great close ups - and how clever of the twink to identify them eh? Not something you get to see often so no wonder you didn't recognise them.......def the weird weather we've been having everywhere round the world!

Hugs.

Hey Darnell,
I love that cushion - you are such a crack-up in those outfits. And I really like the spidery cards in reverse image black & white. They look great.
Glad you enjoyed my 'naughty' Friday post as well as WOYWW, and thanks for your comments.
Smiles to you,
Ros. #102

Samantha Elliott said...

Hehe! Love that spider on your desk! He/She is gorgeous. As for that pillow...it will be asking for a restuffing shortly!
Cannot believe you have gone to work like that! Here I get teased about hallowe'en brooches I wear!

butlersabroad said...

Tee hee hee, I guessed Kim Kardashian, but you're much prettier than her! I wasn't far off was I! Love the other outfits too. We don't do Halloween at all in our house but it looks like a lot of fun! Andrew and I got married in The Lakes District, not far from where that photo was taken, Hellvellyn backed the little chapel too. The whole area holds many, many precious memories for us. I bake once in a while, but not too often as I like to sample the finished goods too much!

Hugs

Chloe G said...

Hey Darnell, thanks for your lovely comment! You look fantastic in all those get-ups though just slightly more glam this year... great bum shot!! Chloe 106

Mary said...

I LOVE IT! Sadly, as I age, the pillow would need to grow smaller! Your desk looks very organized. Love your little cottage. It rained here and the tricksters were few and far between. More candy for this ole gal....ok, I'll share with the neighbor kids! Have a productive week...and Hugs from California

Queen Lightwell said...

lol with your puffed up self! Its so lovely to see your workspace with stuff all out and works in progress on display. :) Your circle spider thing looks cool and is inspiring me to get into my craft room and use some of my new nesties. Speaking of craft room...thanks for the gold star on my most recent reorg! ;) Have fun and thanks for leaving me a comment already. :) Deeyll

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh, ha! You are a giggle...I love that you're a last minute witch crafter, makes me feel very at home...as I'm so late to visit!! adoring your 'outfit' gal...even I've heard of KK, so it made me roar! am super impressed that you have an eleven year old dress that fits you so beautifully and that you can accommodate a little 'junk' without spoiling your line!!!

Michelle said...

Oh, Darnell, your costumes are awesome! What a handy pillow!

BJ said...

Thanks for stopping by. Sorry I don't do halloween so skipped on by earlier. The AJ isn't mine as it is a round robin, hoping I can do something as nice on the one I started yesterday. BJ#33

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I dressed up as someone who cares. If was a difficult costume to pull off! I had to head the airport to pick up a passenger on an ever-delayed flight from the east so I figured the terrorist costume was out. Love the grandmama costume! Very creative! What plans do you have for next year and the pillow?!?!?!!!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

And oh yeah..... way cool spider die!

famfa said...
