Spooky Halloween Word Art Buttons

It's Halloween! It's Halloween!
The moon is full and bright
And we shall see what can't be seen
On any other night.
Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls,
Grinning goblins fighting duels,
Werewolves rising from their tombs,
Witches on their magic brooms.
In masks and gowns we haunt the street
And knock on doors for trick or treat.
Tonight we are the king and queen,
For tonight it's Halloween!
- Jack Prelutsky

Trick or Treat Word Art

Here we go, a few days ‘til Halloween … a little more Halloween Word Art for you this week. After costumes, the best part of Halloween has to be trick-or-treating. At least for my kids it was! Door to door trick-or-treating has changed in many most places, replaced with parties and mall shopping/treats. We are more cautious but it’s still a fun night and a great opportunity for scrapbooking photos. The title below is whimsical and cute for digital scrapbooking or crafts. ENJOY!

Dance, Love, Sing, Live Word Art freebie

My weekend was busy and fun as usual when my dd visits. This time, she decided to explore her brother’s and dad’s shop.


She tested out her brother’s newest & latest acquisition … a ‘69 VW bus!! He actually drove that thing from KS to SC!!! And it’s still running :)

… and as if that wasn’t fun enough, she tried driving their forklift -

The last time dd was here, together we made some Wall Art Word Art. I made the 8 x 8 layouts (credit: Fiddlette Designs, Brandie Butcher-IsleyHGD by Laurie Ann, & Miss Tiina) to highlight one of my favorite quotes – had them printed at Persnickety Prints (no smudging/smearing like with some home printer inks) – mounted to 8 x 8 canvases with Mod Podge – applied 3 more coats to seal – glued on some grosgrain ribbon hangers – and hung them in a hallway next to our extra bedroom.

Power of Words

For a long time, I have been intrigued by the effect of words, our language, on our lives and those around us. My quest has led me to many great teachers. One of my recent discoveries, that I adore, is Christine Kane. She is the real deal (and from my neck-of-the-woods Ü). Here is an article from her newsletter - you should subscribe to her eZine!


Watch Your Language: 7 Rules for Getting What You Want


by Christine Kane
 
Years ago, I was in a car with a music promoter. He had picked me up at the airport and was driving me to my hotel before my performance. On the way, we talked guitars. We got onto the subject of Olson Guitars, arguably the best guitar in the whole world. At one point, the promoter said, "Yea, well, in my entire life I'll never own an Olson guitar."

There was a time when I'd let a remark like this slide on by, even adding my own "me either" to the mix.

Now, I can't.

So, I turned to the promoter and said, "You are NOT allowed to say that!"

This is because I know the power of language. When you understand that words become things, you just can't let language slide.

Now, I have a rule I live by:

Friends don't let friends speak crappily.

Listen up!

Your language is a powerful tool! Words create reality. Even if my promoter friend doesn't know how on earth he'd ever get his guitar, it doesn't mean he should cut off the possibility with his own words.

If you're wondering how to begin watching your words, here are 7 rules for getting what you want!

1 - Eliminate "never" and "always."

Never and always are words of hysteria. "I always mess everything up!" "I'll never figure this out!" "I'll never get an Olson Guitar."

First off, it's not true. If you always messed everything up, you wouldn't have made it out of the womb.

And second off, extreme words are designed to hook you. It's just your emotions taking a joyride. You're more powerful than that.

2 - Use AND instead of BUT.

"But" dismisses the statement before it. "And" includes it. For instance, "That's a good article, but it needs some editing" isn't nearly as encouraging as "That's a good article, AND it needs some editing."

"I love you, but..." is another great example of the dismissive power of "but."

3 - Avoid "Should."

Should is a heinous word for many reasons.

"Should" is victim-speak. It disempowers its object. It negates desires, thereby making it harder to make choices. It adds a nebulous energy to the decision-making process.

Use empowered language instead: "I could..." "I would..." "I am choosing to," "I would like to," "I don't want to," or "You might consider..."

4 - Stop calling yourself depressed.

Also stop allowing anyone to tell you that you are depressed. When you call yourself "depressed" or "obsessive compulsive" or "ADHD" or whatever - you're claiming this thing. You're calling it forth with the most powerful two words in our language: "I am." Stop claiming anything you don't want to be!

5 - Delete the word "hate" from your vocabulary.

"Hate" has lots of energy. When you use it, you send lots of energy out into the very thing you "hate." Even if it's negative energy, it's still a powerful force, adding its charge to that thing. You're also depleting this energy from your own spirit as you say it.

6 - Be "great." Or "wonderful."

A disease of the creative temperament is a belief that we must be authentic at all costs. So we can't answer a simple "How are you?" without delving into an in-depth scan of our emotional temperature.

Try this instead: When people ask you how you're doing, just say, "I'm great!"

I used to think if I said this, then I better have a darn good reason for saying it, like I just won the lottery or something. I thought it would make me look suspicious, and people would start to wonder if something was wrong with me. But then I did it.

And you know what? Most people don't care why you're great. You're saying it for YOU.

7 - Pay attention to the music of your speech.

You know how some people? They talk in question marks? And you have no idea why? But it makes you think you shouldn't really rely on them? And it makes you not want to hire them?

The music of your language says a lot about you. If you let your sentences droop like Eeyore, ("Thanks for noticing me.") or if you do the uncertain question mark language, take note of what attitudes are causing this. These patterns are created for a reason. Even if it feels like faking it at first, generate confidence as you speak.

Halloween Ima Goner Tombstone

Before I tell you about today’s Word Art element, I wanted to tell you about a new url shortening service by Google - http://goo.gl/ – nothing wrong with bit.ly or tiny url or any others … this is just another option to check out. Now, about your tombstone.

Here I am with a birthday coming up, making tombstones! LOL It ain’t right … birthday … tombstone … birth … death … but actually it’s the way it is, isn’t it.

Anyway, for your Halloween digi-scrapping/crafting projects, you get this shadowed tombstone as well as a plain one, both in a zip file. It looks very cool on a dark background. Other TOMBstone sayings to come to make a spook-tacular graveyard.  ;)

Halloween Word Art “Mummy”

As I mentioned before, my daughter likes to dress up for Halloween. One of my favorite looks was “Frida”. She drew on the thick eyebrows, braided her hair, and got the look exactly like Frida! Pretty good likeness, huh. I created these layouts digitally with my own Halloween kit from last year (eeek week Word Art HERE). Can you tell it’s digital scrapbooking? I love the “no glue, no mess” concept of digi-scrapping.

it over. We got 2 big pumpkins from it. They were ripe and ready last month, so I
brought them in to store away from the sun and rain. Our pumpkins are going
back outside now as decorations for the season. Yayyy :)

Memory Word Art and Oregon pictures

Ever been to Oregon? My daughter has been living there over a year and loves being there. My son visits often. (my kids both love traveling the world) Between the two of them, I have pictures aplenty to enjoy. Here are a few pictures showing the varied landscapes in just one area west of Portland to the coast. Being a lifetime resident of the Southeast, I think it's a pretty cool place that I would like!
