Here are the 3 signs that I have finished.

This on I made for my mom. Gave it to her and she loves it! She doesn't want to put it down in the basement just yet, since it's geting close to Fall. Sorry sbout the darkness. I have a lighter picture somewhere


Not really Halloweenie, but I made this for my friend to put in her new shop. I thought it fit perfectly in with her them (Shop's called Warped) and it fits her and her son perfectly as well


Last of the completed ones. This is the first stencil sign I made a few years ago. It proudly sits on my breakfast bar year round

I just joined up because I found the Harry Potter Craftalong! I'm super excited!

I started on a charm bracelet based on this one I saw on Etsy.

https://www.etsy.com/listing/81886984/bertie-botts-every-flavor-bean-charm?ref=col_view

I could have just saved my pennies and bought that one, but I really wanted the beans to match the ones I've found on Pottermore. I'm that big of a geek.

I've already gotten the beans made and painted. It took me all day today, but I'm pretty pleased. I still need to get them put on some kind of bracelet.

I also started a pair of knit fingerless gloves. I tried a new method for the striping, but I'm not liking how it turned out. My five year old pulled my DPNS out of the project, so I might just frog the whole thing and start over.
I am ALWAYS thrilled to meet a new HP crafter! Grin And super excited to have you join the HPCOh, your Bertie Bott's Bean Bracelet sound fantastic!  I can't wait to see all your crafty magic! Cool

...yes, all the exclamation points were needed Cheesy Grin

Those are great, dawnkatdead!

I especially love the tray you made for your Mom.

Do you make your own stencils? I really like the fonts you used.

Okay, I got all HP giddy and forgot to add....

@PaperSongBird: What lovely pieces! I absolutely adore your quilled tree. Grin

@dawnkatdead: Fab Signs!  Love the witchy ones, especially the Black Hat Sisterhood (I would have that up year round). Cool

Thanks everyone Grin! They are a lot of fun and they help me destress  Tongue
@LimeRiot I haven't tried to make any yet. The ones I use are usually from Stencil Smith. They have tons of awesome Halloween stencils. I'm going to try to make my own in the next few months. I have a large coffee table that I want to stencil with a vintage Ouija board.

These are the projects that I'm working on now.

It will soon be a Man Cave sign. A friend of mine is an avid hunter and asked if I could make him a Man Cave sign for his garage. Since hunters wear camo I thought I'd give it a go trying a "camo" paint.


My best friend just moved in with her boyfriend and is currently in the process of making the house less of a bachelor pad. And I thought that these would help make the kitchen start to fell like hers. There is a 3rd one that will say "Tattoo Fund" but I haven't had a chance to stencil it. This is also the first time that I have used the Plaid Peel and Stick letter stencils, and I really like them




And one more. I've been painting mannequin heads for my friend to use a displays in her shop. The shop is all sorts of different things, steampunk, goth, punk, ect. So she asked if I could do a mannequin head for the steampunk stuff. Still trying to figure out the lips


Finished heads

LOL! I thought it would be cool Grin Hubby's not too sure on it, but is going along. I think doing it in sections will be the best way to go. I want to try a bit of an easier one first, just so I can get the idea of actually how to cut out the stencil. Then start sectioning it.
