Hold on to your heads, MissingWillow sent me an arrrhmazing house! I love it!

My very first chunky house is a zombie house. What could be better than that?

Thanks so much, MW! So happy you are an admirer of the undead too.  Cheesy

rackycoo's bitty box finally found its way to my door this morning...are you ready to see?!

Wait for it...(did you notice that my OTT is wrapped like trick-or-treat candy? How clever she is.)

EEEEEK! I didn't outright ask for one, but I was keeping my fingers crossed for a peggie, and I got two! Plus toys! The BOO blocks are decorated with Hallowe'en paper and are 3/4" tall. The box she mailed them in wasn't even 4x4. Now that's OTT.

The little witch has kittykill's hair. She is adorable with her mini broom! The black cat is itsy-bitsy, and has the cutest face.

And those jack-o-lanterns? Who knows how she gave them those faces because they fit on the end of my pinkie.

Here is Pam the Sweet Witch looking lovely with some of my other Hallowe'en treasures. Thank you for another awesome swap, racky. You are the best!

3  One Tiny Halloween Bunny in Halloween Decor and Parties by pottermouth on: September 23, 2015 05:24:49 PM
Here's a flurfy little Trick-or-Treater made for rackycoo for the OTT Hallowe'en Holidays 7, a swap chock full of magnificent Craftsterers. Keep checking the gallery because it is about to get fantabulous.

The bunny has a wool pom pom body and head, with cotton chenille stem arms and legs. The chenille stem was white, which made it look weird, so I needle felted over the wire with a cream coloured wool that matched. The jack-o-lantern is wool felt from the stash, and all was glued to a painted wooden base.

Thanks for the great pics, racky!

4  Happy Halloween Book Pages in Halloween Decor and Parties by pottermouth on: September 06, 2015 01:11:36 PM
I got to mess around with a few really cool chipboard houses from Alpha Stamps for an upcoming Haunted House Swap. They are a pretty nice size, ranging from about 7" to 9" high. That's a lot of room to decorate! I left mine fairly simplistic, with the idea that the recipient may want to bind them as a book. Here are a couple of the houses I embellished for the swap.

Satan can be removed from the house and posed. I can't figure out if he's doing a goofy jig, or if he's in need of the restroom.

This one has little postcards you can pull out of a pocket.

There are a few more pics on my blog and go join the Alpha Stamps Haunted House Swap! Turn your houses into a book, a wall banner, or make stands and have a Haunted Community (that's double sided!)

Came home from out of town to two little gems in the mailbox from DearBluebird! She chose my Children's Book Illustration theme and sent Stuart Little. She also sent a wonderful handmade card. Thank you for the lovelies, DearBluebird!

6  Hallowe'enie TM Wall Hangings in Halloween Decor and Parties by pottermouth on: August 24, 2015 07:22:31 PM
Two TM styled wall hangings for Ludi in the Vintage Halloween Swap. The buttons and lace are from the stash of things I received from my great-grandmother many moons ago. She worked at a button factory and probably made a few of those! The witches' faces are polymer clay painted with acrylic and then varnished.

Check out the Little Imp she sent me!

Happy that you enjoy your stuff, Ludi! The inspiration for the patches came from some magazine ages ago; I uncovered my little notebook I carried around and doodled all the interesting things from craft magazines (because I was too cheap to buy the magazine). The buttons are truly vintage, since they came from my great-grandmother who worked at a button factory. The lacy bits were hers too. And Ernest's face in that shot just makes me laugh, so he was necessary.  Cheesy

Holy cauldron, ginormous pictures! Ack!

lookit that face!

Thank you so much, Ludi. I love him!  Kiss

9  Matchbox Circus ABCs in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by pottermouth on: August 10, 2015 07:13:22 PM
Here's something I made for our dear sweet rackycoo in the IYP 25 swap- 26 bitty circus works of art that fit into a matchbox. I had been struggling with my art at the time, having abandoned painting and drawing for a long while, and these minuscule pieces made easing back into it a bit less daunting. The cards are made from mixed media ATC cards that were cut to fit inside the 2 3/4" x 1 3/4" matchbox. It was exhilarating to paint, stamp, doodle, and draw whatever felt right on each of these cards, probably because they were so small, but maybe because I had all of that bottled up for so long it just had to get out in a manic kind of way!  

The backgrounds are mostly acrylic paint, various stamps, black pen, crayon, coloured pencil, and pastels. All of the images are either collage images or hand drawn.

The completion of this little work helped me feel more confident in my art and I've since enjoyed drawing or painting every day (even if they are only ATCs!)  Cheesy

Thanks to rackycoo for the in-focus shots...the rest are mine. Phtttht.

Received an excellent card from StickerChic for my Hallowe'en theme! The house stamp is too cute, and how about that ghost? Thanks, StickerChic!
