Stay safe on this scary creepy night!

Thursday, October 17, 2013



My hubby and I went to the home show this weekend mainly to look for a compressor that would keep our electricity on through the storms this winter . I really didn't want to go. It is always the same old thing. Countertops, windows, doors, faucets, hot tubs, oh yes lots of hot tubs, those special pots and pans and gutters that trap pine needles. Yep it is always the same old things but every time we go we end up finding something we didn't know we needed.

This year it was a new pest control company. We found it and what drew me in to the booth were these little guys that were displayed on the front table. They are little chocolate mice with almonds for ears, Cute as buttons (or should I say chocolate mice) and they were delicious!

I just had to share this with you all. These would make a really great trick or treat candy!

Oh and here is my entry to the Halloween Art Contest at Creative Souls this year.
The theme was cracked and crackle. 
I call it "Haunted Saints" and you can find the credits for this artwork at Creative Souls in the gallery

Gearing Up For Christmas

 Yes I am getting ready for the Christmas Rush in my Etsy Shop, Altered State of Tin
Over the past two days I created four new tins but these aren't just any old tins. They are kits!

Yep, two of them are Traveling Jewelry Maker Kits. They have a package of beads, the stretchy thread, needles, thread guide and sicissors. AND it all comes in a beautiful altered tin.

The other two tins have sewing kits inside. Thread, pins, tweezers, snaps, buttons, safety pin, needles and scissors, and it is all inside a beautiful altered tin box.

Both of these kits will make a great Christmas Gift or stocking stuffer.
