Jack O’Lantern Halloween Pumpkin Head

OK so maybe I was a bit premature about Christmas the other day especially as Halloween comes first!
I have had some ideas for Halloween decorations and am busy making templates for my felt designs.
I thought I would have a look around Flickr for pictures of pumpkins which are iconic of Halloween and found this excellent sculpture by David Boardman. I may just try my hand at some pumpkin carving this year.
Have you any plans for Halloween crafts?


Prize draw

Thank you so much, I finally reached the 6000 views mark and I did promise a prize draw. So who wants one then? Oh…alright then here we go.

The prize is one of my cute little owls. It will be the smaller size owl (shown above) and in material of my choosing but you can select a colour theme from blue, pink or green. All you have to do is leave me a comment below telling me how you spent your Easter and I will enter your name into the hat. The winning name will be drawn on Monday evening and I will announce it on here.

As the famous saying goes you gotta be in it to win it. Good luck to you all.

Right excuse the bad light it is dark outside and artificial light is really naff for taking pictures in…anyhoo….meet Peri. She is Obie’s little sister and she is very tired.
The iPod Touch is so you can judge their size. Aren’t they cute. I have really enjoyed making these, i think my house may be about to be over run by owls. Wonder what my hubby will make of that LOL

I know I have posted a picture already but it was taken late at night with my iPhone camera and I wanted a better picture so here it is. I LOVE the added detail that the seed beads give this coaster and am already making other coasters with different wording for the teetoal people amongst us!
I also wanted to say a mahoosive thank you to all my followers and people who have liked posts I have made. I have got my 10th follower and my 20th like today. This may not seem much but I am quite pleased with it. To those of you following and liking thank you keep popping back please and bring some friends with you if you want

Wine O’Clock

As a fairly keen camper I strive to ensure that the things we take with us are as light as possible and as my husband is a keen wine drinker (not just on holiday LOL) I thought that this would be quite nice to have on the camping table. Of course they do not just have to be for camping. Anytime is Wine O’Clock so I am told ;o)
