Wicked Blog HOP, Year 3 has Begun, Day one with Wyndham Fabrics, Reliable Irons and Bird Brain Designs as our Sponsors.

Welcome to a couple weeks of  daily WICKED Projects
from some pretty amazing Wicked Creators.

If this is your very first visit here, you are in for some very nice
TRICKS and TREATS. For those who join us with their DAILY BREW
nice to see you again! YOU know we just LOVE YA!

Ohhhh Wicked Wendy  looks forward to this year as much 
as many of us who just love any reason to be WICKED!

She is cheering us on again this year and I have heard
she has some wicked projects to share. Totally Wicked.
I got a sneak peak....Wahhhhhhhh ahhhhhhh 
She is really one of the best Wicked  Cheerleader's we can find...wink...
We are in our 3rd SERIAL THRILLING year of WICKEDNESS! 

Here is a photo of our front door! 
Halloween has always been a very special day for my
DH and I... We met on Halloween at the largest Medical Show in Canada
and 10 years later
after numerous proposals...we married on Halloween...
Many would be very surprised at that...
It had been shared by many they thought we would marry on Valentines
day or Thanksgiving, very special days for us too...

HOWEVER the story is... Halloween is our DAY! 

The day we were married it was the warmest Halloween
on record, on our front door my dear friends
 found this groom and his bride...
We married in our previous home...
Every year since, it adorns our front door...

 Many of our neighbours have remarked
they think we are pretty wicked in a nice way...
I like to think we are still  WICKED IN LOVE!
Now who of thought we would begin WICKED
with such a romantic love story lol....?

We have this week and next filled
with a lot of WICKEDNESS from our Wicked Creators..

Looks who flew in on their brooms today.
( schedule is on the top right of our blog, it will take you to the 
other wicked creators who are standing by with their brooms
to sweep in)

  41. I am really enjoying all the inspiration from this blog hop Thank you

  42. Wishing you an upcoming Happy, Happy Anniversary! I think many of us from an "older" generation have fond memories associated with this "wicked" season. We never thought about having our candy scanned for needles and such. We went trick or treating any place, knew people who soaped the store windows in town, dressed up and went to our neighbors, and had a good time. We didn't associate it with evil. It was just a fun, fun time. I didn't even think of it as a scary time and I'm a person who used to lock my husband out of the house when he went out to mow the yard - lol. Thanks for another great hop. I found a great little "quilt" made from diamonds that I'm going to make from solids and fall (Halloween) prints. I hope to get it down very fast and bless the lady at church who is helping me put together the memorial for my ex-husband. His family is doing nothing to remember him, so I'm doing it. It's been a real eye opener to see how his family of origin and his children have no respect for him. He was found dead in his apartment and laid in the ME's office for over a month. I have joined the grief group at church. I honestly believe we endure things so we get later help others through similar circumstances. Bless you for this forum which helps others.

  43. Hi, someone told me on my last blog post that I should be part of the Madamm Samm Wicked Blog Hop. Had to google to find out what it was. What a fun event! Looking forward to looking around more.

  44. There is so much talent out and about. What a fun time of year to be a crafter. I love all the talent, but because boys rule my home, we love spiders and webs. What a cool design.

  45. Thanks For Doing This And Happy Anniversary

  46. Thanks For Doing This And Happy Anniversary

  47. First time following your hop. Can't think of a more perfect one, I love Halloween. Thanks to everyone who is sharing their talent and time.

  48. Love your Halloween romance. Happy Anniversary to you both on the 31st. It is another fantastic blog hop. Love the spider web that made it into the Hall of Fame today.

  49. What a wonderful wicked day! They are all so scary and fun! Be back tomorrow!

  50. Halloween! What a great day for an anniversary. Warm wishes to your and your DH. Now I'm off to see all the wicked delights (and make a web of my very own!).

  51. That is super cool to be so unique! Wishes to your and your DH for the fast approaching anniversary!

    This blog hop has been so much fun. Its just the beginning...can't wait to see what wickedness is in store for rest of the week ;).

  52. This Wicked hop is such fun and I am enjoying all the amazing projects made by everyone. The web quilt is Best of Show for me...so far! Thank you for all the work and joy you are giving us. BOO-tiful...

  53. I'm so glad that Linda still got to participate after the fire. I loved being in the Wicked hop last year.

  54. Finally had time to check out the first day of Wicked. Love the spider web! Great projects all around.

  55. What a fun love story for you and your dear husband! I think Halloween might have been my niece's holiday as that is how he proposed, carved "will you marry me into a pumpkin" Unfortunately, it did not happen as it was supposed to about two weeks ago. Late getting around again but busy, busy trying to get my entry done! Now that it is down to handwork, I can stitch between hopping, LOL.

  56. As to be expected, lots of wicked goodies to adore. I look forward to this hop every year.

  57. Really like that spiderweb. This is the best blog hop of the year, I always look forward to it. Thanks for all you do.


You think they are just words...they are sew much more than that...your wee messages tell me, you are kind, smart and important...
