Halloween Gift Boxes!

If you have the day off from work due to Labor Day, I hope you enjoy it.  We have the Labor movement that began over 100 years ago to be thankful for the holiday, our 8 hour work days and 5 day work weeks, safer work conditions, child labor laws and much more.  Today we think of the holiday as a time to picnic, the end of summer and the beginning of school.  There is so much more behind the holiday. Thanks to those individuals so many years ago we have the life we live today.  I don't know if I could work six days a week without any vacations?


Now to share my Halloween gift boxes with you.  Need a cute gift box for that little something... here are a couple of ideas for small Halloween Gifts!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
