I received my package from Witchhippie today!!! I love everything!

Here is the whole package!

Here is an action shot of the scoodie her mom made! Its so soft and warm!~ Love it!

She sent a pair of these cool candle holders and some peach incense (which smells great!)

She said she was unhappy with the way this pumpkin turned out but I really like it!

She made the magic bag and here is a peek inside the bag...some magic candles with sage..

She decoupaged this book/box! Its really cool! And the really cool thing is I am always drawing spirals when I doodle! I like spirals!

Inside the box was a bunch of goodies!

Little ATC sized notecards, a twig pencil, a large crystal, a pocket stone, and a pretty pendulum that she made!~

Thanks so much Jeannette!

12  Painted pumpkin in Halloween Decor and Parties by mandykaye on: October 26, 2013 02:43:42 PM
So my work is having a company carved/decorated pumpkin contest. I cannot carve very well so I decided to paint one. I was really inspired by this pumpkin I saw on Pinterest Wink http://alisaburke.blogspot.com/2009/10/messy-pumpkin-tutorial-giveaway-winners.html  SO I decided to go for it! It took a few hours since there are a lot of layers of paint! I used shimmery metallic paints for the background and finished up with a gold glitter glaze over top! The office ladies loved it so we'll see how well it does in the contest Wink (The winner wins a company sweatshirt lol)

Thanks for looking and hope it inspires you too!!! Happy Halloween!

15  Nightmare Before Christmas chunky house/shrine in Completed Projects by mandykaye on: October 18, 2013 11:11:46 PM
I made this chunky house or shrine for the Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap. I used a pre-made birdhouse and demolished it hehe! Then I had my hubby help drill random holes in it for a mini string of Christmas lights. I made the pumpkins, the moon, and Zero out of ploy clay. The hill with Jack and Sally are cardboard.

Thanks for looking!

I made this painting titled "Nightmare of the Fandoms" for the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap. I'm a bit out of practice with my painting but you can tell what it is lol! I added some cool spooky glow-in-the-dark stickers I had saved for something special. See if you can pick out the different fandoms....

Thanks for looking Wink

Yay! I'm so glad you liked everything Rachel! I also received yesterday but had to work extra long hours so I couldn't post last night Sad

So without further ado, here is my wonderful package from dharma_rebel!

Here are the beautifully done pages she made for me! I love the aged look and the calligraphy! She sent lots of info on different divination methods! I had no idea on some of them!!! And I love the dragon's blood ink and feather quill!

Here is a closer pic so you can see the details of the paper a bit better....sorry, I could only get a chance to take photos in the dark lol!

Here is a great palmistry page and a pendulum page!

Then she sent me some other wonderful goodies to go along with the pages!

This gorgeous acorn/tree of life pendulum! What is so extra special about the pendulum is that the wooden beads were gifted to her daughter (she was given the power of nature) and she wanted to include them! Then a very lucky bottle of wishes!

She sent these really neat Mayan candles with little dolls!

And that's not all! She made this beautiful wand from a (madrona tree?) and piece of quartz from her collection.

I love the little details on it! The wire and beads..especially the little pentagram bead!

Thanks so much Rachel for an awesome swap!!!!! LOVE it all!

20  Beach sprayed t-shirts! in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by mandykaye on: June 16, 2013 01:24:47 AM
So I've been meaning to try the bleach sprayed shirts for awhile now and finally "sat" down to do it! I made my dad a couple of t-shirts for Father's Day. He likes eagles and wears a lot of skulls so I used those as my inspiration. I found some pictures online and copied them free-handed onto some card stock type paper. I placed the paper on the shirt and sprayed away lol! For the eagle shirt, I just flipped the stencil and moved it around. After each shirt had dried, I rinsed in cold water and let hang dry again before washing.

I just like how cheap and simple it is to turn a $5 t-shirt into a more expensive-looking custom piece!

This shirt I made for the IYP 23 Swap with edelC! She loves flamingos so I came up with this design! This was actually my first attempt at bleach spraying.

The latest bleach sprayed shirt for a swap!
