Masked Monkeys

Remember the bats from last week?? And how I wanted to make more?? Well I finally did a few. I moved a few things around to add them to the look of my mantel. Like so.

And while I had the black card stock and scissors out, I made some masks for my monkeys. Yes, I have large green "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" monkeys in my living room. They were a wedding gift from my sister in law. They are a little strange and I love them. Now they are a little stranger for Halloween! You could do the same for the animals in your house. Or do masks for your framed family photos!!

And since I loved the photos I saw floating around the Internet last week of all the other silhouettes, I picked up a package of crows and mice and had Sweet Pea help me put them up around the house.

See, naughty crows in the fruit bowl.

ANd this guy is part of a whole family of mice trying to find their way upstairs. Okay, I really hope not. Real mice give me the creeps. At my old job, I had a mouse that showed up every winter. I'll never forget sitting at my desk and seeing the mouse run under the closet door with a HUGE piece of pizza crust. The mouse made it under the door, the crust did not. But the mouse tried hard to pull it under the door and I could hear it. I had to leave my office. We got a trap after that. Yuck.
