Day 31 of 31

Today I have for you a big ol bunch of everything! I am participating in a 2012 CD Calendar swap and of course I chose to do the month of October! It’s for a group called Penny Wise Arts. We do lots of swaps over there. It’s a yahoo group so if you wanna check us out come on over! Anyway they have a store called of course they have a little of everything there but specialize in microbeads! So if your ever looking for microbeads or other things come on over and check them out!
Here is my October page for next year! I have used a StampInsanity image again I love them!
Now on to the pictures of my house decorations. It is bittersweet this year as we have moved to a new town and evidentially not everyone like Halloween here. I live in a huge community and my street has about 10 houses on it and we are the only house that has decorated! That’s sad to me! But Oh well we will make lemonade out of grapes and have the time of our year!!! LOL
Ok here is one of my’s our dining room table

Here is the table in our kitchen, I mean where else would I keep my cauldron and potions ingredients!! Please ignore the wall paper as we are renting this house and I did not pick it out!!!
This is the fireplace in the upstairs living room. It’s where I have a lot of the things I made last year.
This is the inside front door…
and the glass door I guess a screen door…
This is outside, as of now… I have other things to go up just haven’t had the time to get them up! I knew when the hubby said we will get it next weekend that I was screwed!!! LOL It will go up though!!!
This is the front of the house, you can barley see my arch but it’s there and the little pumpkin topiaries and my escaping skellies!!
Meet Monterey and Jack(so named by my daughter for her favorite cheese). They join us every year at this time!
Thanks for looking and go and see what everyone else has made for you!

Day 29 of 31

Hello lovelies, can you believe it’s almost Halloween!  I am so very excited!!!  I can’t wait!!!  As most of you know we moved to this new house in this new town in January of this year and I have had some not so very good times here.  I am sad to say that on our street of 10 houses we are the only ones who have decorated for Halloween!  I have no idea if we will have trick or treaters.. but we are having friends of the kids over so that will have to suffice!  That being said, and actually having nothing to do with my project I just wanted you to know what a weird place I live in, we are moving on to my project for the day!

Several days ago I showed you a charm I made for one of those little branch trees…. I have a few more to show you today!  I think I like this group better than the first one!  What do you think?


All the images are from inkadinkado and all the charms have been colored with alcohol inks!  Let’s see, there is a skull, a vampire, and two spider webs in this group!  The tree will be revealed on the 31st!!!! 
No off with you to see the next project!!!!!

Day 28 of 31

Hello lovelies, today I have for you another Forever Night Challenge and a Bombshell stamps tutorial!

 Yep another twofer!!!

Let’s start with Forever Night, this week our sponsor is Stitchy Bear. Our challenge is an embellishment challenge. Your challenge is to use a flower somewhere on your project! Now for most this is not hard, but although I like flowers and have started making them recently I don’t often just put them on a card!!! BUTTTTT I managed to do it just for you! LOL JK


Isn’t she a bad ass!!! I love her hair and her chains!!!

Now head on over to the Forever Night Challenge blog to see what everyone else has made for you and also to see about getting in on this challenge!!!
Also remember to finish your 31 days hop!!!

Now for the Bombshell Tutorial!

As I hinted at yesterday today I am going to show you how to make the flowers I made for LB’s wreath. There are other tutorials out there but I found, once I started, that they were wasting to much paper to get the perfect flower. If you want that perfect flower then by all means, square off your paper and go from there. I personally think that if they look a little wonky then it looks a little more home/handmade instead of store bought! Just my personal opinion though!

Material needed:
Stamps of choice, I used the skeleton from the digital set skully doll!
ink/or image printed from the computer
copy paper
old books, or if you have trouble tearing up books, some sort of thin paper.
hot glue( lots and lots of hot glue!!! I went through a whole bag when making the wreath!)
lots of patience!!!

Now you didn’t think I was going to leave you with that did you???  No way not me!  How about a box filled with candy to put them on?  Now this box I made using my Martha Stewart score board, but that is a tutorial for another day!!!  Wanna see the finished project?

Day 27 of 31

Hello Lovelies, today I have to share with you some teeny tiny apothecary jars that I made to go along with the regular size ones I made last year!  Most of them are labeled using some sticker labels  I had laying around but a few are made with some inkadinkado stamps I got from the $ spot at the craft store!!!  Love those stamps! 

Ok here are a few I have done….
The Eye of newt is actually white glue with green reinker and gold micro beads!  I haven’t decided what to do with the others yet!  It’s tough!  Any suggestions?
This is the inkadinkado stamp!  Isn’t it cool, it says Witches wart removal…. 
Remember to go and see what everyone else has made for you today and leave everyone some love cause we all like love!!!! 
See ya tomorrow with a new Forever night Challenge and a Bombshell Tutorial…. you just might learn how to make those flowers I used for LB’s wreath!!!

Day 26 of 31

Hello Lovelies, welcome to this months version of the Bombshell Blog hop!  Yep that’s right we are back to do the monthly blog hop because they were dearly missed and the lovely Ms. Alison decided that she could handle all us rowdy bombshells!!! LOL

This month being Halloween and all I bet you will never guess what the theme is!! LOL Winking smile  Here is what Ms. Alison had to say about this months theme:
It's October! It's October! My very most favorite month of the year! Can you tell I'm excited??? So...what's this month's Bombshell Hump Day Hop Theme? Let me start off by saying I was really happy to see that last month's hop had so many Halloween projects in it. Without further adieu, this month's theme is...Halloween of course! :twisted:'s with a twist. You must include skeletons or a skull in/on it somewhere. You can use any of the numerous Bombshell Stamps skeletons, or you can create your own. Just make sure you get your Bombshell Stamps in there somewhere! You may also create a Day of the Dead project for this hop. But I couldn't fit it all in the title! ;)
So here is what I made!  I used the skull from the Man’s Ruin stamp set. 
I am always in need of some wonderful bling!!!  I found this charm at Michaels and had to pick it up, not quite knowing what I was going to do with it, then this challenge came up and I couldn’t resist!!! 
Remember to go and see what everyone else has made and also to finish the 31 days hop!!!

Day 22 of 31

Hello lovelies, today I have for you another ATC I made using the $ spot inkadinkado stamps.  This little ATC has a special surprise! 

Isn’t that an awesome stamp?!  I used distress inks to color him, well not really color but make it so that it wasn’t white!  I used gathered twigs, and ripe persimmon.  Two of the new distress inks.  The patterned paper is also from echo park, I love that Apothecary Emporium collection!  Anyway, the ribbon is from Michaels. 
Wanna see the surprise?  Ok here it is!
The sentiment is also from inkadinkado!  Isn’t that cool!!!  The background is colored with distress inks, gathered twigs, ripe persimmon, and seedless preserves!   Thanks for looking! Remember to go and see what everyone else has made for you today!!!

Hello Lovelies,  Welcome to another Forever Night Challenge.  Today we have for you, a sketch challenge.  We were lucky enough to get to chose an image from the MelJens Monster Mash collection!  Here is the sketch:

Day 20 of 31

Hello Lovelies, can you believe it’s day 20 already!!!  I can’t, it seems to be going by so quickly!  I don’t want it to be Halloween to soon, I love October!  Anyway, today I have for you a StampInsanity challenge!  It’s a wicked one at that!  We Groovy Gurlz challenge you to dress up a treat!  That’s right, How do you dress up a treat? 

I have these test tubes, got them last year on clearance, and wanted to use them this year.  I think they will go great sitting on the bar in the family room.  Not to mention that I am sneaking in portion control for the family too!!! Winking smile  Anyway, I found this cool little tutorial on splitcoast for a test tube holder… on the tutorial she shows how to do one but also has measurements for 2, 3, even 4!  So I chose to do the 3 one!  I think these are super cute and the tubes can be reused so I am pretty sure there will be portion controlled candy on the bar year round!!!  These would be great for a party too!

All of my images are from StampInsanity so be sure to head on over there to see what everyone else has made! 


Remember to finish the 31 days hop also!!!  There are some wicked sweet prizes to be won, and I will be back later with the winner of the blog candy, from the Forever Night Challenge hop!!
