Shipment of Mummies!!

The Chazman had a ball helping me make the "MUMMIES" for his Halloween surprise for his classmates. It seems that the artistic genes are running amok in him as well.....that's a good thing!! He is already thinking about what he wants us to make them for a Christmas surprise. LOL

Since there are 24 Li'l Mummies that will be following the Chazman to school on Monday....I figured that I needed an easy way for him to transport them. I didn't want to just put them in a bag and say "Here ya go"!! Although (tapping chin) I do have an abundance of Wal-Mart bags under the sink. No No...they get used by the hubbikins to carry his lunch to work. Besides, I just said I didn't want to just put them in a bag, didn't I?  So..I dug under the bed and found the perfect size box. I didn't want to just put them in an old box either so I decided to make it look like a delivery crate. A little paint here....some drawings and doodlings there and "PRESTO" an old shipping crate.
I am always searching for vintage items and when I find ones I think I might use then I print them off and store them away. In going through my stash I rediscovered the "special delivery and air mail" labels...perfect addition....don't ya think?? Then I found a sheet of vintage postage stamps and OMGOSH, yes YES YES..I had some from Egypt. Not sure what I thought I was going to do with them when I downloaded but so happy I did.
I also had the heading from an old Egyptian mailing label. I really wander sometimes what in the world my mind thinks of at times or what's being whispered to me and apparently just following it's directions not questioning WHY!! OH Well....glad I did......this time.

I used twine to wrap the box with and added a cute "BEWARE" tag with big googlie eyes.  I mean....there ARE Mummies inside....ones with very stinky feet but we will let them figure that out when they open it and the Chazman gives them out..hehehe or should I be laughing Muahahahahaha (evil laugh) OK better just stick with the sweet laughing....I don't want someone running away saying "I want my Mummy". HA...I just couldn't resist that one...sorry!!!

Until next time.....Happy Halloween HUGS, Regi

  2. Chazman has to be the most popular kid in his class! Wonderful job! I thought you'd make a huge coffin, but perhaps a bit too scary!
