Halloween Treat Box & Hello Kitty Ornament

If you haven't already heard what happened to me this past weekend, I hurt my leg because of a toad that scared me. How can that be since I'm bigger than he is right. Well as I was walking over to the back house just before I reached the stairs this toad jumps out of the dark and I almost stepped on it. It scared that crap outta me and I tried to avoid it and took a double step and tried to get on the first stair but I missed it. I felt my calf snap and then I felt PAIN! I waited until the next morning to go to the doctor because I thought I could handle the pain. WRONG! First thing in the early morning I called my doctor and he said to go to the emergency just incase because he was worried it was bleeding and may have a blood clot. Thank goodness it wasn't bleeding!! They gave me pain meds and crutches to walk. The calf muscle has micro tears and feels like I'm having cramps in the calf all the time. Call me crazy but I may go back to work tomorrow. It's too hot at home. I don't know we'll see how it feels in the morning. My son said mom you should have just squashed it. I was afraid of it splattering! YUK!

Anyway since I am at home from work not being able to walk around much because of my leg, I thought I'd sit here at my craft table and create something. I finally got to make something today! Yay!! Anyway I've been seeing this treat box through other blogs and been wanting to try and make one too. It's not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I finally got this stamping bella stamp that took almost 1-1/2 months since I ordered it. I think it got lost in the mail somewhere in Canada. I don't know but I thought that I should use it before Halloween is over.
STAY TUNED FOR HELLO KITTY HALLOWEEN ORNAMENTS GIVEAWAY TOMORROW!!

Here's a Hello Kitty Halloween Ornament that I made today. I made a bunch of Hello Kitty heads earlier and realized that I put the bows all on the wrong side. I didn't want to get rid of it and thought maybe I can still use it. I decided to make a witch hat for it. It turned out cute.

OMG...I hope you feel better. I think I would've done the same thing if I saw a toad. But I would've probably broke my leg...lol. The HK Halloween ornaments are really cute. Well, take care.
