Skellies in my closet but mostly on my couch……

We’re having an inaugural ball (read, teenage part-tay) here on Saturday. How fitting that it should be on “All Hallows Eve”.

The very thought scares the bee-jee-bus out of me.

If there was any bee-jee-bus to begin with. I’m not exactly sure where to look for that particular ummm…would that be anatomy or bodily fluid? Anyone? Fascinating. Absolutely fascinating.

but I digress…….

So, usually I tend to flee from anything even remotely Martha Stewart-like but these fellows were so dang cute.

So I made a whole “passle” and rounded them up for a picture before I sent them off.

It was a lot harder than you might think.

“Hey! Frank and George! I said settle down not upside down!!!!!”

“Look at me, not the dog!! I promise he is NOT paper trained!”

And so it went, it was exhausting to say the least.

Then (much to my surprise) I made my own envelopes, forced each one inside and sent them off to their new homes.

Martha Stewart's got nothing on you, and she has a rap sheet too. Those skeletor invitations are fabulous- nice work on the handmade envelopes.
