Halloween Trio: Cat, Ghost & Pumpkin

I'm back!  I'm so happy!!!  I've been dealing with some pretty nasty nerve damage in my dominant arm since last Spring.  By about June, it got so bad that it took everything I had just to get through the day, so I had to stop doing pretty much anything that wasn't absolutely necessary.  I had surgery in August and the recovery has been less than fun.  I'm still not operating at 100%, but I'm tired of not being able to do the things that I love.  I didn't realize how big of a part of my life crafting and being able to express my creativity in that way is.  It truly makes me happy, and when I can't do it, I get depressed.  I hope that  I never have to go through another "craft-less" time in my life again!

Sooo anyhoodle, my first project back on the "job" was this Halloween trio for my porch.  My fabulous hubby cut me this wood:

This is what I did with it:

The ghost stands 2 feet.  The cat 18" and the pumpkin is 12":
It looks so adorable on my porch!  I'm so glad to be back to being able to craft again and look forward to getting back to 100%.
