Cloak…?

Well, the cloak I was working on has gotten scrapped. The pattern was not working for the intended audience. Didn’t bother finishing since it is a drafting for a particular purpose. Thus it was all frogged out. Bleh. I am still trying to make a pattern. Just slow going for me. We’ll see.

Halloween Decor Altar

So, as part of the decor Dragon and I had altars and Monkey had something similar with his medical spread. He went as a plague doctor.

This is my altar. And the plague doctor struck, leaving one of his vile rats behind! Continue reading

How Can You Bust That?!

Over the years, I have frequently been asked how I can watch my pinatas being busted up after I’ve spent so many hours working on them. Here’s my attempt to answer that.

First, I love pinatas and enjoy breaking them. I love watching the excitement and energy that surrounds the event. No other event has the same charge as breaking a pinata does. Continue reading

Cauldron Pinata

At about every party our family hosts, there is a pinata. I dunno, I just love them.

Because of that, this ended up being a rather long post. Continue reading

Spell Book

Another decor piece was the spell book.

Used a tea bag to darken the pages up in an effort to give the book a used look.

Huskies

This has nothing to do with Halloween. But I figured I’d share the huskies that I painted for Dragon’s field hockey team. You can’t see it in the photo, but they are painted onto wooden sticks.

Corset

I added elements to the corset to give color to the outfit and to pull it together with the head dress.

I separated out the sections of the corset by unlacing and unhooking it. This made it lay flat and ensured that I didn’t get glue on pieces other then the one I was actively working on. Continue reading

Quill

I took one of the feathers and stripped the end of it. Then cut the tip into a slanting point. Lastly, colored the tip black. Then I dropped the end in a jar to make a writing quill to add to the decor.

Easiest Halloween thing I made!
