Creepy Halloween

Hey y'all,

Last year, I put popsicle sticks together to make this miniature "crate":

To make this was simple....I inked the edges with TH's ink; then stamped different images using Michael's "dollar" stamps.

I had die cuts that I added in various place and used designer paper on the inside of the basket.

This kitty is a paper die-cut.

I added a ribbon for the handle and made bows to cover the ends of the ribbon.  It makes a cute desk accessory (fill with candy for co-workers).  How cool is that?

Halloween is around the corner...


I haven't done much crafting because too many things are going on - school, volunteering for President Obama's re-election campaign, work, etc.  But I am loving it!  I just wanted to drop off something from the past that was fun creating - check it out!  :-)

This is a box I painted, ink distressed the lid and bottom, papered and embellished the bottom and sides with a cute little ribbon pumpkin on top.

I added the witch from die-cuts in a pack (can't remember the designer) and used a spider and bat to bring on the spooky theme.

I filled the box with chocolate treats because it was for a swap that I joined with my Georgia Peach buddies!  This was a lot of fun!

Hmmm...sampling the little treats was a lot more fun...yum, yum!

Welcome to my new blog home!  Crafter's Delight was where I started in August of 2009.  I then started Tellen's Place Designs - a challenge blog and ended it in 2012.  I took the year off to regroup and deal with the changes in my personal life (e.g. unemployment since December 2008, family upsets, etc.).  Soon, I'll start blogging again as I get my crafting mojo back....stay tuned. :-)
