Our Halloween Candy Jar

I made this jar several years ago when I was on the FiberMark dt. That was a fun gig. Anyways, I sort of went nuts with punches and dies and the lovely FiberMark textured papers, plus a few DoodleBug stickers thrown in for good measure.

This jar is sooooo very me. Mini scenes, some with a little macabre humor, and loads of color and texture. Not surprisingly it was never picked up for publication. I guess the decapitated paper dolls were too much. Heck! The dolls are not even holding their bloody dripping heads the way they were in a haunted house scrapbook layout that I did years ago.

BTW, the freshman received her Halloween package and loved it. I'm a cool mom once again. Go me! And she HAD read my blog after all, but at least the rest of the package was a big surprise. Best yet is that it arrived and was opened in time for Halloween.

Thanks for visiting today.

Halloween Treat Box

This mini-gable box won't hold a lot, but I figure it'll hold something sweet and cute, that will be a surprise for the Freshman, who I don't think looks at my blog. If she does, woopsie! :D

Anyways, I sprayed the box with home-made shimmer mist made from Perfect Pearls, Concord Grape Distress Ink, and water. The stamps are Crafty Priscilla (no longer available), Priscilla Devilish Cat, Priscilla Perfect Cat, Priscilla Witchy Cat, Tricky Priscilla, and "Happy Halloween" by Odd Bird Planet.

Bwa ha ha! I'm wicked and like prolonging the anticipation.

Suffice to say, the images on this kit's unmounted rubber sheet are really, really cute! Better yet, this time, the sheet includes sentiments!

Stay tuned for further peeks!

Feline Arachnophobia!

Kelly's Ragdoll Cat is definitely afraid of Teresa's Spider and thinking "EEK", though she has the Kelly's Patchwork Pumpkins to guard her.

The patterned paper is very old KI paper and the images were colored with Copics.

This is NOT a realistic scene. My real Ragdoll/American Tabby cat and my Tuxedo cat stalk spiders and them eat them for the added protein. Yeah. You needed to know that.

Fall/Halloween invitation

I've been remiss in updating the ol' blog, but I've got two good excuses. (1) I went to visit the Freshman for "Family Weekend" and had a great time. (2) While there, we went to the Aquarium and some children sneezed on me or something since I've been sick since Tuesday, complete with chills, fever, weakness, dizziness, muscle aches, muscle cramps, sinus headaches, stuffed nose, runny nose, sore throat, and a cough. Lovely. Just lovely. I've been napping a lot and drinking inordinate amounts of tea. I'm totally irritated because I had lots of cleaning, exercising, crafting, and job hunting to do and all I've been good for is sleeping and whinging. Lots and lots of whinging.

Anyways, this card is to kick off the Halloween season. Halloween is my favorite holiday. I love to wear my teeth-chattering skull pin, one of my head bands with devil ears, cat ears, etc, and my ever-so-fashionable plastic skeleton earrings. Plus, I really love watching the little ones come to the house Trick or Treating.

It'll be a bit bittersweet as this will be the first year that I don't have a herd of teenagers hanging about. But I'll get over it and save candy for the little people too.

Anyways, the card features the Spring Tree and a variety of owls from Odd Bird Planet stamps. The paper is by Flair Designs' Autumn Harvest line, which is one of my favories. The sentiment is computer generated. Coloring was done with Prismacolor pencils.

You should definitely visit Odd Bird Planet's store since there are four Halloween-themed kits, including a special edition A La Tarte kit! Check them out by clicking here!
