It seems I have forgotten to write!

I have been busy, I swear! It seems that I am so busy that I had to pull out the "family room craft table". You always read about crafts people that have a designated place to craft but always create out in the living/family room where everyone else is hanging out. This is where the "family room craft table" came to be!
This is also where many projects tend to pile up. So you may see a melange of craft goodness. Many of the projects have been Halloween related, which I will present on October 23rd during Artsy Mama's Autumn GatheringOoh, I can't wait to see everyones spooky Halloween decor!
I can't resist, here's a sneak peek! I purchased the pumpkin pots last year after Halloween for $5 each!

What ever happen with the spools you ask?

They became mini spool people! This is a photo of one that was gifted to the one who purchased some mushrooms. These spool people can be used for gift tags or cupcake toppers. I'm playing with the idea of the recipient unrolling a quote and being inspired, what do you think? Hopefully these will be available soon in the shop. I hope all is well out there in blog land!

Spools, spools...what do I do?

I purchased a huge bag of these adorable mini spools at the thrift store awhile back and finally decided to make something of them! But oh so many to paint! I created a prototype of some sorts and will reveal the secret project soon! Other things that are being created in the wood shop are more mushrooms! I am so happy with the way they came out!
The brown on these mushrooms actually has a bit of a maroon tint, I love it!

Can't forget the pink mushrooms. All the mushrooms are packaged and will be in the shop!

I also went estate sailing recently and was actually overwhelmed by the place! The owner was definitely a collector of all sorts! But I did manage to pick up a few items
A tin filled with random bits and pieces.
Not a birthday card, but a mini book. Very adorable vintage images
More books.
Now don't you think this is a cute little package? I thought so too! I picked it up threw in my basket and didn't think twice about it (as I usually do with cute packages). When I got home I decided to check out it's contents, what can possibly be in this adorable pouch...oh yeah toilet seat covers! Hilarious to me!
Yeah, yeah...I got more! I can't resist, do you blame me?
