Kentucky fried chicken bones

They say the third time is the charm.  Not at Kentucky fried chicken;  it's my last time.  The chicken looked so good on the commercials but is a total fail!

First time we got grilled chicken tho we ordered  the new boneless skinless.  It was so dried out we could not eat it!!!   it looked like something forgotten in the  bottom drawer of a refride!  Horrible.  So
We tried another store. Second  time we got bones!  All dark meat!  This time hubby went and we got bones again.  

So the commercials are right you will be eating  the bones!  Just to prove it is bones here is a picture of a piece.  Tiniest chicken breast I ever saw.  Hardest crust you had to peel most of it off to get to the driest chicken on the face of the earth.  

Three stores three MAJOR fails!  Why are they still in business????  Don't try it.  They are the worst!  

We did have the receipt but now I can't find it but it said boneless.  To top it off it was almost 20.00 dollars of pure shit all three times!!!! Are these stores a cover for a drug business like in breaking bad????

Pumpkin Obsession

I have been doing papermache halloween things. 22 pumpkins, 15 LARGE witch hats, lots of skulls...these two floor cloths, about 11 altered halloween books and about 15 graves. Some ghouls and a great pumpkin chair...which isn't finished. Here are some examples of what i have been doing...sorry about the quality. I will get around to taking some better pics soon. At 3 in the morning I am not about to obsess on getting great pics. I have made three dragons...which Paul wants me to take pics of so I have to get to clicking.

Memories of Mom

My Mom passed on Jan 26,2010. We are a close family and love each other a lot. My pain was deep and will probably always be just like the rest of my family.

To remember her by I have been experimenting in glass and made some lockets while I perfect my glass work. Here are some of the lockets. Not all of them tho. I already gave out a couple to my daughters. One I could not photograph because it is with one of them already. You can see a snip of my mom's hair on back of one. The Victorians use to do this. I didn't do it on two of them. Some people think it's kinda creepy

Halloween Reaper Swap

I signed up for a Post Halloween Reaper Swap. Sounded fun...and I was working with paper mache so I figured I would make cool coffin to ship it in. Now I am not so sure I can do that! i also made a paper mache witches hat that holds a pin/necklace that contains a drawing I did that is specific to the reaperee. I also put a hanging vampire bat in there that I bought. A blinking light too. Oh and a picture with the drawing.

Sisler FAST 5 minute ghost - in three easy steps

5 minute ghost in three easy steps .....with stuff you probably already are tossing away.

Click on the pics for bigger image.

Supplies for this ghost will be slightly different as I don't have another spring-bag laying around. The whole point is cheap but cool.

2 packages of cheese cloth (about 4 yards each)
Home depot is 3.67 but they will meet plus 10% our McCoys price plus 10% off. Our McCoys was 2.29.

white milk jug
2 metal coat hangers
string or ribbon to hang ghost
scissors for the cheese cloth
wire cutters

I have a green house so I can do the really messy work there....LOL You need to hang this while you are working on it. I have some metal plant hangers that I use to hang work from. You could use string even. What do you have laying around?

Step 1: Rinse and poke two holes in the bottom of the jug with a nail or the scissors. Don't stress on the size as the string will be what it hangs from; just make sure that you leave the middle between the two holes intact. This bottom will be the top of the ghosts head. I was frustrated and cut the handle to poke my hand thru so I could string it fast. Hint: Try to remove the label.

Step 2. Cut two wire hangers. I cut near the twisted part on one side to get maximum length. Use the nail again and and make a hole on either side of the spout of the jug. Thread the wire thru the holes then twist each side together. I curled the hook part of the hanger into a circle. In retrospect I wouldn't of made such a big circle. I use it to catch the edge of the cloth on for draping

Step 3. Drape the cheese cloth. I cut the first package in half. As you can see by this pic it isn't enough. I cut the second package in 1/3's. Don't stress. Maybe it was maybe it wasn't. It was just sort of. I used my hands to make a hole to string the cheese cloth over the ribbon hanger. You could use scissors if you want. Making a hole in the cheese cloth section makes it so you don't HAVE to glue stuff up. My idea was to drape it over the thing and when it is time to pack up halloween I toss the jug and hangers.

My other ghost had a bridge between the two arms made of a hanger. I didn't think this one needed it. I also dripped white paint mixed with glue and wall mud. I am not going to do that to this one. It started to rain and I needed to get back to the house. The puppies need their beauty sleep!

More papermache pumpkins and graves

This my door pumpkin...papermache of course. The others are just flat.

Here is my 30 minute ghost. Hangers, an old spring type candy bag and two packages of cheese cloth...with some monster mud to hold it together. Total 6.00. I will add to it next year and make it a flying one! How cool would that be?

Ok...still working on stuff. I have a large box that I cut up into pumpkins. I painted those in the window after filling in the sides with spakling. I don't count the cost of that or the paint as I always have that on hand but if I did have to buy the paint it came to 2.00. The cat is a piece of tissue paper I cut into that shape. The monster cost me 29.00 at Walgreens tho. I already blew my budget of 20.00!

The stryo stuff was also from the box. I cut it up into shapes and quickly painted them. Cost zero...the bones are just rolled up newspaper that I papermached. Did 23 and it didn't take me long. I had the pumpkin so I am not counting that cost. Like I said...I don't count the paint but if you did a .50 bottle of white and black acrylic would be all you would need.

Here is a picture of my giant papermache spider. Left over box and coat hangers. Cost zero. It did take me three days and I haven't finished spider 2 which actually is a better looking spider. I would like to add spider led eyes but I just priced those at the shack and WOW. 15 for two leds and batteries. Gotta rethink that.

The witch I had from last year.

I should be finishing the othe spider and adding my festoons to the stairs to the porch but I bought some cheese cloth and am going to start me a ghost. THIS wont store well. Yickes. The other stuff will store flat.
