Halloween! Swaps! Owls!

Hello Friends!



Well, Halloween is almost upon us!!
I did not do as much Halloween crafting as I did last year,
but I did get a few fun ones to share:

I made this altered matchbox for a swap at Vintage Dragonfly:


 There is more texture and color variation to the matchbox
than you can see in this picture.
My partner prefers Fall colors and not too creepy,
so we were a perfect match! 

These little shadowboxes were samples for a swap in my Paper Soiree group:





I never did post this altered paper mache coffin box I made for last year's Paper Soiree:






Side view:
Stuffed with fun Halloween goodies of course!

We made these tags for our make and take:






I altered the images from Paper Whimsy to give them an edgy, eerier look.

Time for some Halloween owls:

Black and White Halloween! Freebies!

Hello Friends!

I love the idea of a black and white Halloween,
so I thought I'd have a little fun today
and challenge myself to make this a (mostly) black and white post.

Starting with this little spoolie doll I made last year:




This is a pic I took last year of NYC Anthrolopologie's October decor:


From my Pinterest board:
 
I took this photo last Fall in a mystery book store in New Hampshire:


From last year's NE trip:

Ironic and spooky!

From my Pinterest board:


and
book page pumpkins
and


Mini marshmallows, pretzel sticks and white chocolate!

Last Fall at Vignettes...Halloween Chic:


I just love these ladies,
there are so many possibilities:

October! Halloween ATCs! Freebies!

Hello Friends!

I am playing in ArtJoyStuff's ATC swap,
the theme of which is "Masked Beauty".

I love Art Deco Halloween images
and thought this one would fit the theme just right:

I used some spidery paper as the background and
edged the card with washi tape.

I made each one a bit different, just cuz.
 

Yay!
It's October!!

 
 Another reason I like October is because it is my birthday month!
And that means guilt-free shopping all month long ;)

Here are some Art Deco freebies for your own use:

Haunted Computer! Halloween Card and Tag! Freebies!

Hello Friends!

My computer is haunted.
No, really.
I am working on a matchbox for
Vintage Dragonfly's matchbox swap,
and thought it would be cute to make a little
label for it that says "Magick".
OK, it's actually not my computer that's haunted,
it's my Paint Shop Pro program.
Which I will never give up, never!

But every time, and I mean every time
I type Magick into the text box,
it shuts the program down.
Every time.
Spooky, no?
I type Magic into the text box,
no problem.
I purposely misspell other words
to see if that's the problem, but no.
If anyone out there has PSP7
could you please try this and let me know what happens?
Many thanks.
Meanwhile, it's "Magic" for me,
but it's just not as cute.

Enough.

Here's a little card and tag I did
for a swap at A Swap for All Seasons:



Yeah, I'm not a creepy/gory Halloween kind of girl.

And some freebies for your Halloween crafting:

Nature's Blessings Art Journal! Freebies!

Hello Friends!

I am delighted to be participating in the
"Nature's Blessings" Art Journal Swap,
hosted by Karla Nathan of "Karla's Cottage".

 We were to make a four page layout
with any nature theme,
with plenty of space for journaling and doodling..

I chose "birds" as my theme.
I think this page has lots of space for journaling:


 I added the bow and trim for texture.

Pages 2 and 3.
There is space on page 2,
and when you lift up the top page,

there are a couple of blank pages underneath.


Page 3 is a page ripped from 
The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady,

with a glassine envelope
filled with tags for journaling.

Page 4 has two pockets for tags
and space around the page for journaling.



 And here are all six of them,
ready for mailing.
        I'm going to miss them!  :)

Well, can you guess the nature of today's freebies?

Yep.







Some of my favorites!!
