Swap goodies.....

I have been under the clay for a few days, since my hands are clean I thought I would share some pics. Here is a swap I did with a bear maker......Nancy. Go check out her cuddly critters, they are so lovely. Thanks Viv for hosting a great swap. Check out Viv's blog for pics, might be a tad early, but check back soon :)Also, I wanted to thank all the orders that came from Spooky Time Jingles. Here are a couple of pictures of some new ornies, custom orders, so they will be traveling to new homes. If your interested, drop me a line. I am only taking orders until Dec. 1

The last one is for a breast cancer survivor, her dress reads, "HOPE". There will more of these to come, thanks for taking a peek and enjoy the weekend :)

Some wonderful talent....you gotta see

Just in case you haven't seen the new offerings at SPoOky TiMe JiNglEs....you must hurry and check out the fantastic art. The talent is off the charts and I love all the creativeness. Remember there is only one more update until Christmas, so don't let these wonderful holiday collectibles get away. Thanks for all who snatched up my goodies, I am thankful they are going to new homes. Here is a picture of my new ornies, if interested I am taking orders, just few though. Momma elf needs to prepare for her own little ones. My littlest asked for a pink one, so I off to my workshop.

Have a great weekend......more pics soon and a special swap I will be unveiling~ hugs!

Spooky Time Jingles....oh my!!

Today frost has come......it's a cold crisp morning. I am writing this in my kitchen. The sun is peeking through the trees. I am enjoying the morning. This morning I thank all the veterans of their courageous fight for our freedom....thank you~

I am excited to be back on Spooky Time Jingles. I have been so nervous about what to create.....I think this angst has squeezed my creative juices. I have a few new concepts this month. I will be whipping up some new Halloweenies too. I hope you enjoy the site updates on the 13th....until then I will give you a tease, this was my favorite!!

Bat Boy....

This piece reminds me of my son. How they grow so fast....now my son is in middle school and he has changed so much from the little boy who wanted to wear capes and be a super hero. Have a good evening~

Halloween Festivities

The weekend flew by with all the Halloween festivities. So fun. Our whole family loves to dress up. First of the wild weekend was our annual pumpkin carving at our good friends house. This has become such a highlight of the season and the kids look forward to this as much as going trick or treating....here is my son getting advice from my good friend Katie.....we take this very seriously! Alex and I preparing our pumpkins......
The whole gang proud of their masterpieces!!
The whole family before we went trick or treating. My husband was Forest Gump.....run Forest run!!!I was his hippy girlfriend, Jenny. I even found a vintage 60's dress on Ebay. My son was a dead Cub fan still waiting for them to win the world series. My middle daughter was a sweet baker. I bought the cupcake apron from Garboodles.....scrumptious!! Our littlest was a pink, of course pink, gypsy pirate girl, sparkles and all. We had a blast trick or treating, a bit cold, but when candy is involved.......there is nothing holding back our kids getting candy. Here is a witch passing out candy from her caldron.........BAWHAHAHAAAA!!!!!!! Running from house to house..... Smiling faces.....candy bags are full!!!

We are lucky enough our parents live close. So they spent the night and we went to a big kid Halloween party. I love to see what people come up with....

Mortisha and Fester......love it!

My hubby and I having a good time......peace!!
This was a store bought costume, but sooo cute!!
Forrest Gump and Charlie Brown........so fun!!
Stairway to Heaven and Highway to Hell.......very creative. On his stairs, he had an ipod playing both these songs!! We had so much fun and each year I am amazed at how creative and funny people are.....some are creepy, but lots and lots of imagination.


So, as I put my Halloween goodies away, I will cherish these fun times, and look forward to next year. Only 363 days left.....here are some of my treasures.

Halloweenie Queenie......love her! This was made by my friend Michelle, The Blackberry Briar.

This little sweet is an original from Colleen Moody....I just adore her face.
These two figures remind me of my daughter, a Lori Mitchell reproduction and a creative Noodle and Lou original. So fun!! Next, is another fantastic original from Sam I Am, this reminds me of my sweet Alex too, so sweet :)

Here is one of my fall birdies with a nest full of pumpkins......
Another Noodle and Lou card and pumpkins........love Halloween!!!
My fun and creepy mummy in his own little coffin (actually it is an old carpenters box painted a fun green)and spiders oh MY!!!
