Spooky business

Its my day on Timeless Twine and I made 3 spooky projects. We are going to our grandkids house for halloween so I am making some little gifts to take. I am going to make dipped pretzels the real long ones to put into this tall skeleton bag. I don't have them done yet cause I want them to be as fresh as possible before we go, although when you read this I will be getting ready to leave.


I made a tall treat bag for both the bags its the same one I just opted to fold the one over and punch holes in it and tie it a bit differently. I used Tuxedo Black on that one. On the skeleton bag I used Tuxedo Black and Graphite Gray twine. I braided some of the Graphine Gray and Tuxedo Black twine to make handles for the bag. The tags are also Silhouette files. The skeleton is put together with brads and he is moveable! How fun right! Then I put a hole in his noggin and tied some more twine to have him hang. I would have liked to create a noose and put it around his neck if his neck would have had the flexibility in it....hmmmm modification is what I am hearing here. I wish I would have had time.


I was feverishly working on these projects because my first DT project for Jessica Sprague was due the day before this project and I hadn't been able to craft much in the past few weeks because we were remodeling the area my craft room is in and several rooms connecting. So it didn't leave me much time.
I love the way they came out though. The card is also a silhouette file. I added just a pop of the Olive green twine and curled it to just be that pop of the pumpkins vine.

I hope you like the project and stop by the store to see all the goodies you can get to create some awesome treat bags. Right now Stacy has the cutest ice cream cups that I think would look adorable filled with candy and a cellophane bag over it all and tied with some Timeless Twine and a cute tag!

Monster Mash Up

Well....long time no talkie! I have been so busy with so many things that I have neglected my poor little blog. I also have been sick for weeks with a nasty sinus infection that still hasn't gone away completely but life goes on.

We moved a few months ago and have been remodeling our little old house and so as I am writing this my craft room is being ripped out from underneath me. We are getting new flooring Friday so I get some new floors in my craft room, kitchen and dining room so I am super excited. Then my hubs is taking me on a much needed Ikea trip to buy me an expedit workstation unit and another desk to make my room look better. I have a nice desk but the other tables are just those cheap plastic folding tables but they have been such a nice space to work in and I did abuse them a bit on the tops because I knew it didn't matter if I stained them etc. Now I will have nicer stuff I will not be able to do that...well I will try not to do that.

I still have so many things on my list to buy a new wide format printer, and a couple new desk chairs. Mine is getting all ripped up and worn and it has had several years of my big butt to wear it down too so that will come soon. Ok enough of my babbling but just wanted to catch you up for why I have been away.

Today is my day on Timeless Twine and I used all my stamps for the images on my card just to show my stamps. This card is humongo because my images are not small. I hate to buy stamps that the images are so small you can't paper piece easy or color. Now that being said I do not have copics or any kind of markers I only have watercolor pencils and I am NOT at all someone who enjoys coloring images so that is my disclaimer. I know alot of you would have done an awesome job....me...ah it is what it is.

I used the Olive Green and Purple Passion twine to wrap down the creases of the card. I cut out just a little jagged flag for my sentiment (also my stamp)

Stop by the store Stacy got some really cute new items to make some awesome treat bags, containers etc. Check out the cute little ice cream treat cups. This would make an awesome gift if you put some candy in a treat bag and then put it in the ice cream treat cup or candy in the cup and a bag to cover it all with some great colored twine to tie it together! WOW so many possibilities!
