21  Category Challenges / Needlework Challenge Entries / Witchy Woman! Sew Lovely Needlework Challenge! Due Oct 1-7th on: September 01, 2016 08:35:52 AM
The amazing peeps at Sew Lovely Embroidery are at it again! They have designed this adorable witchy pin up pattern for the Needlework Challenge.

The pattern is in the next post below.

You can combine stitching with any other media or material but it has to have a stitching component  (cross stitch, needlepoint, embroidery) to it. You can also alter the pattern.

Now for the fine print:

Craft your project during this challenge period (September 1-30th) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.

Each participant can enter ONE project.

 Post your craft during the period of October 1-7th. No sooner.  No later.  On October 1st I will instruct you on how to post your craft.

Voting will happen from October 8-15, 2016.

The winner will be officially announced on October 16.

If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

The winner will receive all of these awesome patterns from Sew Lovely!

26  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Weekend Trick or Treat swap on: August 09, 2016 01:28:31 PM
A few years ago I did a weekend Trick or Treat Swap. Basically you filled one of those small pumpkins and had a weekend to craft one small. You had from Friday till Monday to send out. You would fill it with treats, small crafty items-things like that. It is fun swap with a quick turn around.
27  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Haunted Mansion Swap on: August 09, 2016 01:24:44 PM
It seems that every time there is a Disney swap so many of us gravitate towards the Haunted Mansion. What if we did just a Disney Haunted Mansion Swap?
28  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Solar Chandelier on: August 01, 2016 09:00:05 AM
C'mon people! Party on the patio! This solar chandelier was so much fun to make and it goes great with my backyard decor. You can make your own with this month's Craftster's Quickies. Super easy and quick so it gives you more time to enjoy the backyard. Check out the video HERE

And how it looks with my hanging baskets

Maisy is not amused. She would rather surf the table.
