Bewitched Part II

Alrighty!  I'm back!  I have to make this quick, so here goes...

My 2nd pair of Witch Shoes, complete.  I still have to add grungy tags for both pair, but I just couldn't wait that long for "Sharing Time."  hehe

And, once again, please forgive my WAY TOO MANY photos...  I just can't pick and choose, though I will try to not include ALL the ones I took.  lol

That's it for today!  I must now head out to the store, then back home to start supper!

Have a wonderful night, everyone!


Good afternoon, friends!  I'm back with another finished project!  Yay!

I know I was going to try getting back here yesterday, but I just wasn't quite finished with my latest (and most favorite-est), so I had to wait.  ...sorry 'bout that.
Anyway, I sure hope it was worth the wait!  Here is just one of the two pair of witches' shoes I have made up.  The others are just about finished and I will be back after a bit to show you those.  They are from the same pattern, but very different from these.

I'm so excited!  I absolutely love how these came out!  My daughter, Rainy, drew out the pattern for me (she did a wonderful job-THANK YOU, Rai!), and then I went to town -and it was so much fun!  

As is with my last post, with the pun'kins, this is another of my "firsts."  I hope you will enjoy!  :)

My First Prim Pun'kins

Hey there, again, Prim ~n~ Proper Friends!  (I just know you ALL are-hehe)!

As usual, I am on limited time, so I'm just poppin' in real quick to share my very first Prim Pun'kins.  I'm very pleased with how they came out, and I hope you will be as pleased.  I still have grungy tags to add to them for their finishing touch, but it's just about time I start supper.
Unfortunately, these are all I managed to whip up today.  I do have lots more goodies coming shortly, so stay tuned, 'cause I'm really thinking tomorrow I'll have plenty more to share... knock on wood!  *wink*

I wish I had more time to stay, but hungry hubby and children will surely start wondering if I plan on starving them this evening, if I don't get.  LOL 

And here are those Pun'kins...

Thanks again for stopping by!  See ya soon!

What Next? H'mmm...

Been doing a lot of "looky-looing" here, there and everywhere today, and am now trying to decide what I'll be making next. First, I thought I'd definitely be trying my hand at some Prairie Dolls, but the more I think about it, I'm leaning more toward some Witches Hats, Boots ~n~ Shoes, and some probably some Prim Pumpkins, and Ghosts, as well!  Then later, I'll "do up" some Prairie Dolls.
I do believe tomorrow is going to be a BIG sewing day... or at least the *beginning* of a long week of sewing ahead. :)

A Couple o' More Fall Gathering Goodies

Hey, there!  I wanted to pop in again here real quick before supper to show you what I finished up today.

I think I'm finished with these sort of projects for now.  I just needed to get these wooden items I had started out of the way.  

Here is an old bread board that I, once again, based in black, sanded, distressed, and this time, finished with a "wipe on, wipe off" coat of walnut stain.  Then, there are a couple of wooden plates/candle trays that I did all the same to, but also did a coat of paint on in between.  I did one mustard over black and the other a burnt pumpkin orange over black.

And on with the end results~

 This last one's just an overview of all the "like" projects I completed over the past couple of days.

I have no idea what I'm going to try next, but it'll be somethin'!
Now it's time to get my HUGE mess cleaned up and plan my next project(S).  :)

Have a wonderful evening, friends!
