22  Boo Shrine in Halloween Decor and Parties by SonjaBoo on: October 15, 2014 05:38:31 PM
I made this shrine for my partner in the Vintage Halloween swap -- in a former life, it was a cigar box. I painted the edges black and sealed them, and left the brassy finishings on.

Here's the front. Boo. I love these papers together, and have been searching for a place to use these glittery letters. The pumpkin is from a new sheet of ephemera/stickers that I fell in love with after I promised myself I wouldn't buy any more Halloween stuff. Oops.

The back - more polka dotted happy paper, a black cat image and some fun sticker border stuff.

The inside -- I have had this skeleton paper for a while, and it's been looking for the right place to haunt. I cut the sheet into two parts so that it would take up both of the inside panels. Then I wanted it to have a spooky/vintage/sweet feel, so I added some gray/purple flowers, a vintage skeleton key (get it?), some little potion bottles, a lizard and some bats, and some mini mirrors for the heck of it.

I was really pleased with how it turned out, and it was seriously fun to put together!

Thanks for looking! Happy Halloween!  Grin

23  Vintage Style Haunted House in Halloween Decor and Parties by SonjaBoo on: October 15, 2014 05:23:19 PM
I made this vintage style haunted house for my partner in the Vintage Halloween Swap. I have had this kit in my stash for a little while, and have been waiting for the perfect project. (The kit shows it as a little cottage or Christmas church -- the makers didn't realize that it's obviously supposed to be a haunted house. I mean, duh. Cheesy)

Please pardon my super rad cubicle photos.

A close up of the little owl who lives upstairs:

And a vintage photo look for a vintage house. I made the pumpkin from paper clay, and the trees are bottle brush trees. I sent along a little faux flickering candle so the house can light up at night. Grin

This was a super fun project for a super fun swap, with a super awesome partner!
Thanks for looking!

I received an AMAZING package from stitchzBstitchz -- I am totally in the Halloween mood now! Grin We agreed to do two mediums, since we couldn't contain ourselves to one.

First, a look at all the awesomeness! stitchzBstitchz made (and drew) a beautiful canvas, a super-cool shrine and sent along some extra goodies. Grin


A close-up of the canvas -- not every witch lives in Salem! Ha! This is awesome -- I live about half an hour from Salem, so this is extra funny around here.

And close ups of the shrine -- I love this so much! There are so many fun details -- and the lady who lives inside is super creepy! Grin

Thank you so much for swapping with me stitchzBstitchz! I absolutely love everything and had a great time. Grin

25  Snarky Cocktail Tray in Completed Projects by SonjaBoo on: September 20, 2014 04:08:11 PM
I made this cocktail tray for Smmarrt in the Snarky Housewives Swap -- after all, how can you be a snarky housewife without a drink tray?

The text says, "I'm on the martini diet -- so far I've lost two days."

I went with a red, aqua and white color scheme. The martinis are stamped on, and the little retro stars I freehanded.

Just a peek at the aqua on the bottom.

I was chuckling as I made this, so it was definitely a fun project! All it needs now is a few martinis.

Oh my goodness, so many incredible things here! I am in awe of the mini tree-trimming kit -- it's so beautiful!

Speaking of being in awe, I received from silentblair -- I have spent much of this afternoon laughing and near tears at how awesome this box of goodies really is. Like, she nailed it.

Here's the entire haul, and then I'll do individual pics:

As you can see, amazingness, right? The first thing that I opened was the birdhouse, which has the adddress of 221 Baker Street. How freaking awesome is that? I can't decide if the birds will ever see this or if it's just going to stay in my living room forever. Grin

Next, hilarious dishtowels that I can't wait to use. I needed some snark in my kitchen.

Then, an awesome mug to declare my love for delicious flavor -- and Psych.

Then, moving on to my all-time favorite show in the world, The Golden Girls. Words cannot express how much I love this hoopla and these magnets! The magnets crack me up!

Then, and this is the part that got me teary, the fingerless gloves based on the show Castle, which I also love. I am a writer, and have always wanted the writer flack vest that he wears. silentblair totally trumped that and made me fingerless gloves that I can wear when I am freezing at the office so I can continue typing away! I am the worst knitter ever, and anything like this feels like so much work to me. Knitted gifts make me emotional.  Roll Eyes

Moving on to a hilarious item, a mini-Jenga game with quotes from Statler and Waldorf of the Muppets, so that you can laugh whenever you pull a new piece out:

And the frosting on top... Benedict Cumberbatch plant markers for my Cumberpatch garden. Ha. These are hilarious.

Blair also included a Fozzie Bear Pez (I collect Pez), vintage Gremlins stickers, a Makit & Bakit kit (I was obsessed with these when I was little) and a bag of googly eyes that will be used extensively this Halloweeen.

Whew! I think that is everything... honestly, I am in a state of swap euphoria. Thank you so much, Blair. This was an amazing swap! I hope you like your goodies as much as I love mine!  Kiss

I received from the ever-talented and snarky Smmarrt, and let me just say, I am thrilled!

This will be hung in a place of honor in our laundry room. Grin

A peek at the back, which of course is also super cute:

And a bigger photo with a couple of extras -- I have been attempting to collect ATCs off the states, and she sent along this gorgeous one for California! And of course, maybe the best pendant ever made. Grin

Thank you so much Smmarrt for an amazing swap! I hope your package gets to you very soon. This has been a fun one!

28  Mumford & Sons Lyrics Via Wood Burning in Completed Projects by SonjaBoo on: July 25, 2014 04:43:18 PM

I made this for Mr. 'Boo for our anniversary this year in May. (We get that they are overplayed -- we just can't deny our love for them! Ha.) Anyway, I picked up the wooden piece at Michaels and then had at it with my wood burning tool. I designed it myself, and made up the fonts and all that. It was really fun to play around with lettering!

It's currently hanging above our fireplace, which I guess feels appropriate for a wood burning piece. Cheesy Here's a dark shot of it.

Thanks for looking!
