Okay, I cant wait any longer! Gonna post the ornament-exchange meetup picture of me and kbrison. I was so excited to meet her (and Zalphinian). Fun times!

Kbrison, if you have a better picture I can take mine down and you can put yours up instead. Just let me know. Thanks again!

Hope the small differences are acceptable. Cant wait to start swapping!

3  Halloween Cake in Halloween Decor and Parties by endymion on: November 01, 2019 10:58:39 AM
This cake isnt my best work, but I have been crazy and sleep-deprived this week!

For an event my son was hosting.

The dancing skeletons and fence posts are candy melts. Trees and pumpkins are fondant. Haunted house is a chocolate cookie with chocolate frosting and melted hard candy windows. We put a little battery-operated flickering tea light behind it.

Woo hoo! Halloween projects done. Can move on to Christmas! I feel like dancing like the skeletons on the cake!

4  Autumn Cookies in Dessert by endymion on: October 31, 2019 09:39:29 AM
Made these cookies for an event at work today. The apple-shaped ones are apple-flavored, and the others are maple-flavored.

Made about 6 dozen total (including some chocolate Halloween-themed ones that I posted in the holiday section). Whew! I think Im gonna leave early today and go home for a nap...  Cheesy

6  Vintage Kitsch Elf in a Baking Tin in Winter Holidays by endymion on: October 28, 2019 10:38:05 AM
Made this for the Sweat Shoppe Ornament Swap... Inspired by the fun, kitschy wreaths and decorations of Georgia Peachez.

Almost all the components are vintage garage-sale or thrift store trinkets:
Star-shaped baking tin
Bottle brush Christmas tree
Plastic elf from a 1970s DIY Christmas ornament kit (inexplicably, with an unseasonal lady bug on his leg!)
Plastic bells from a vintage garland
Vintage seam binding bow
Lurex yarn and vintage sequins for hanger (not pictured)

The only new things are the Merry Christmas message from a Tim Holtz pack of chipboard holiday slogans, some sparkly scrapbook paper as a backdrop, and the tinsel around the edge.

Do come swap! This particular swap is closed now, but there are always fun ones in the works!

Here is the first Vintage Kitsch Elf in a Baking Tin. I really admire the wreaths and decorations sold by Georgia Peachez and Ive been collecting garage sale Christmas trinkets for a couple of years to try to make my own. This is just the nudge I needed to make the ornaments-in-tins Ive been wanting to do.

The little elves are in different positions, so they wont all be climbing the tree like this one. Also the phrase will vary, because I have a box of them and they are all different. Trims may also vary, but they will all have the little bells at the bottom and the tinsel all around.

Hope thats okay; if not, let me know and Ill figure something out.

8  Monster Window Silhouettes in Halloween Decor and Parties by endymion on: October 13, 2019 05:38:57 PM
On my task list for today, was to break down a bunch of large cardboard boxes to be recycled. Ended up getting a little more creative with the box cutter...

I had seen something similar on Pinterest and happened to think of it when confronted by those large pieces of cardboard. I taped the cut-outs to the curtains, on the inside. That way, they dont show in the daytime, only at night.

UPDATE: Temporarily moved some furniture inside, so that the pumpkin guy shows up better.

9  Autumn wreath with yarn, felt, and crochet decoration in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by endymion on: September 07, 2019 03:53:48 PM
Cant stop making yarn-wrapped wreaths! For this one, I crocheted a long chain before wrapping the wreath form, which gives the wreath more texture.

Embellishments include felt leaves and flowers, a burlap rose, metallic-painted acorns with crocheted tops, crocheted leaves, and various trimmings.
