A Lovelorn Halloween

The months fell away and he never returned to her.

Happy Halloween, folks! I'll be having chocolate and wine for dinner as the neighborhood kids shiver up to the front door. Bad example? Meh. :) Something has to keep me warm!

Cheers,
Susan

Introducing My Fabulous Sister Lora!

Hi folks! Today I'm excited to introduce my big sister Lora to all of you. I won't gush about her too much -even though I could write paragraphs about her wonderfulness- but I will tell you she is extremely important to me as a person and an artist. :)

Here are some of her recent works:


She is an Alpha Stamps October Guest Designer - you can see her tutorial on articulating skeletons HERE. I want the one on the far right SO MUCH, but it's not for me. *sadface*

It's hard to pick a favorite, but "Snow White's Heart In A Box" is really high on my list. This was made for a Craftster swap. The heart is polymer clay and the box is matchbox-size.


This is called "A Traveler's House" and is made from polymer clay. HERE is her original Craftster post with loads of photos!

8 inches tall... 8 inches!

This last share is made from a vintage matchbox that's even smaller than the matchboxes we use today. I actually can't wrap my head around the scale of this one... Click the photo to see the whole house on her blog post and HERE  to see the details on Craftster. It.Is.Amazing.


She has a new website to share her incredible work, Cackle and Hoot. Please visit. She will inspire you, too!

Cheers,
Susan

Alice In Wonderland

Hi folks! I'm finishing up my Grease-themed invitation order and will return to more paper-based bloggy fun soon (I can't wait to start Christmas cards!). I took a little time off to make 30 Alice-themed pins for a party. The crafty customer is making mini hats for the guests and will attach these pins along with other froofery. I'm dying to see photos!

Each pin has an Alice-themed charm!

I'll be scheduling tomorrow's post next. I'm over-the-moon excited to introduce you to my sister and her new blog. She's got crazy talent and mad skills all rolled into one wacky chick. :)

I hope everyone in Sandy's path stays safe. Maryland is under a State of Emergency and is a Federal Emergency zone. We're on the coast and even though neighborhoods around us are losing power, we still have it. The most worrisome part for me is that my dog won't go outside in the rain. *sigh* These big storms are tough on him.

Cheers,
Susan

Pins, Glorious Pins!

Hiya friends! Thought I'd pop in and share what's on the work table. I've been busy with the baubles again and have sparklies in my eyes!


If you're a bauble kind of girl, I'll be adding loads of new stick pins to the Etsy shop today. :)

I have a neat skeleton shadowbox project in the works, also. I'm hoping to finish it BEFORE Halloween. Thanks for visiting!

Cheers,
Susan

Custom Invitations

Hiya crafty peeps! Here's a small stack of finished invitations on a big order. I have a wee bit over a hundred more to make and I'm thinking it will be one heck of a festive event!


I'm hoping to eek out a few more Halloween projects in the next week. I think the invitation process is streamlined enough that I can afford the time to get a little more spooky. Maybe... :)

I hope your creative juices are flowing!

Cheers,
Susan
