ZOMBIES! Yearly Family Photos - HALLOWEEN - photography - {{BEWARE}} creepy/bloody - OUTTAKES

So, I know it's hard to tell from all the Halloween ZOMBIES, PARTIES, DEAD BODIES, DECORATIONS that we absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Halloween. 

Our family tradition for Halloween is to take family zombie pictures!!! We look forward to this every year and if the make-up wasn't so labor intensive, we would do a Christmas one too. We plan a theme and use the photos for a Halloween card. So much fun!  Can't wait to post this years photo but for now lets take a look back on past photos. Awe! Look at my little zombies getting so big :)

Oh and sorry for all the watermarks. I'm having a problem with people taking my small little watermark out and stealing my photos and using as their own and even advertising with them. :/ {{not a happy blogger}}

2009 Graveyard

Even the dog is a zombie :)

2010 Dinner Time

2011 Bath Time

Even the rubber ducky is a zombie. This is my personal favorite. I love all the details and I set-up and planned for weeks.
2012 Sightseeing

I used the top photo as the stamp on the postcard. We had lots of looks driving around town that day. Lol!

2013 Family BBQ

This was very very last minute. I was working so much I didn't have a chance to get everything together. Still love how it turned out.

Now for some more pics and outtakes :)

The bottom smile is soooooo creepy. Oooh I love it!

DIY- Wallpaper Filing Cabinet Makeover - Tutorial - Office Project - SKULLS!!!

So with being a tad OCD I'm also a huge pack rat. One step from hoarding so officially NOT a hoarder. :D My logic anyway.

On fbook we have a local "swap" site that people list things to sell or giveaway. The giveaway part is my problem and I frequently need to remind myself that my husband will kill me if I bring anything else home. BUT I couldn't pass up a functioning piece of furniture, right!?

A functioning piece of furniture that needed a mini makeover.

Pictures don't do it justice. It's amazing! 

Raised and velvety

Oooooh! I instantly wanted to cover every room in the house!!! Since that's not an option, I thought of 50 things I wanted to craft. In addition to that I'm stalking watching glancing on the swap site for any giveaways. It's really really fast pace and you have to post "I want it" first and then for the rest they type "next" just in case they pass on the item. Not bragging but I was first. What is it? 

Filing cabinet. :) I know, not that exciting but I was super pumped to do a mini makeover with the new wallpaper. It's so pretty I needed to craft something for my office so I can see it all the time.

First I took the hardware off...well, tried. The lock was a little tricky but the "fang" looking piece to the far left slides off to release the lock after the bolt is removed. I didn't know that but finally figured it out. 

Hardware finally removed and I could continue

Measured and re-measured and re-re-measured before I cut. For the lock I traced it from the inside and cut.

Ready to apply

I put a coat of Mod Podge on the cabinet and pressed wallpaper firmly. 
re-attached hardware and DONE!!

Oooooh ahhhhhh! I LOVE it! 

Oh the possibilities! Check back soon!
