3 new patterns HALLOWEEN PATTERNS!

 I have three new  Halloween patterns. As I am sure you know I love Halloween. It is one of my favorite holidays. My creativity seems to be at its best when I am creating for Halloween. I don't know maybe cause anything goes, spooky, sweet, whimsical, just down right scary or creepy. Any and all. I hope to do a few small piece this month but time is running out and I am going in circles. Running about at warp speed preparing for the baby shower for my DIL, grandson this weekend.
 so here is the first pattern. My Mummy Publishes in Celebrate365 magazine
here is the link for his purchase

Next is my favorite doll of all time. My Peter,peter pumpkin eater. He is so quirky I just love his up to something grin! he was publishes in Prims magazine last year. Making his momma very proud.
here is his link

and Last but not least is my Grumplin! She is a bit more wicked then the others but still so fun. I loved how she turned out so unique. Bit ol' hump and all.
here is her link for purchase. If you prefer you can also purchase them on the side here on my blog just click on my ETSY banner and it will take you there.

well lots to do before the weekend so best get to it. Sewing some baby blankets tonight and then hitting the hay early.

I cracked the Eiffel Tower

 Hello Everyone,
 I thought that might get your attention! LOL

 I have been busy. In wasn't kidding. I did about 8 projects in a week which for me that is a lot! LOL Including write a new pattern but we will get to that later.

 Here is the first project. a tag for a dear friend. Inspired by the Prima designer Anna Debrowska! She is wonderful and I love her style. The two part tag is all I borrowed.
Used the pink paisley London Market papers and ephemera pack for the eiffel tag and teacup. The spoon is prima from the printery paper. I really love how this one turned out.
here is some detail.
For the crackle I used one step crackle by Delta. I love this stuff.
 Here is the low down on supplies
chip board- medium weight
Pink Paisley- London Market papers, ephemera tea cup, eiffel tower tag, spool tops 

Prima- clock, velvet trinkets( beads on bottom tag),lace- on top tag, and say it in pearls bling
Rose applique- gift from Juliana
Crafters workshop- stencil- mini chicken wire reversed
Wild orchid crafts- rose
Dusty Attics- through LSG- dress form
Melissa Frances-crystal stick pin, resin shabby butterfly
Recollections- corner pieces
Tim Holtz, spinners- on clock
 Michael's -chain
Epson- printer for bottom tag
Mircron-005 pen for "beautiful" written on paper from collection
Delta, ceramcoat paint-white( on corners) & one step crackle- on eiffel tag
Karla001-etsy- pearl trim on bottom tag
 Here is the second half of the tag. I really love how this all came together.

For the second part of this is a picture frame. I wish I had taken a before shot. It was so ugly. It was beat up, dirty and with broken hinges in a bright gold. I coated it with Gesso-2 coats, spray painted it with rustoleum paint and added prima tea time papers to it. I love how it turned out and it matches the dress form I made her last month perfectly.
so that is what I have been up to. I can't show you everything tonight. I have to hit the hay. It us 2 am and this gals get up and go has retired for the night.
many blessings,Pea
