It's that time of the year again!!! Yes, I know - you will get sick of reading about it - but it really is time for spooky fun!
With that said - I thought it would be fun to have a give-away. So how about a crow from my Crowullens collection. Yes - it's true - the Crowullens Clan is growing and seem out of control. I can't help myself - I love crows!!!!!
To participate, become a follower and I will put your name in the hat. At the end - September 1st, midnight is the deadline - I will have my beloved beagle - Lacey Jane - choose with her very own nose and paw the winner! Doesn't that sound like fun! Sure will be for Lacey Jane! tehe......
I will post the winner here in the blog.
So without further cawing - here is the pic -

Carlisle Crowullen!!!
Isn't he a fun crow! He sports a hand dyed wool vest that laces in the front and has wonderful vintage plastic ball buttons. He also has on a silk scarf and of course the Crowullen Crest pinned in with his little flower. Carlisle himself is made of muslin, painted and distressed. His stand is a glass candleholder that is painted and dusted with mica. And the pattern came from Soft In The Head!
Good Luck and Stay Well!

Halloween is almost here and I am so excited!!! This is my favorite time of the year and I get to bring out all my creepy creations (well maybe not so scary, but definitely Halloweenish!)
Be sure to stop over at the Pfatt MarketPlace on the 10th of this month( for my latest in Halloween musings.

Since The Twilight Saga is so in front right now (New Moon will be released 11-2o-09, I created The Crowluns. They all have their family crest and really are a disparate bunch.

Here is one pic:

Meet Esme Crowlun - named Mother Esme Crowlun by her clan because of her sweet disposition and loving attitude. Notice her family crest is pinned to her hat!

I want to make more Crowluns - so I am thinking there will more midnight oil burning really soon!

Also - the newest issue of Create and Decorate will be released very soon. I have two projects in this issue and both are simple ones to tickle your Halloween fancies.

This rug is called "Something Spooky"

Isn't this just the coolest rug!!!!

Hannah and Her Spooky Chicken is the other project:

and here is the website for the magazine

Well, here it is 3:21 am and maybe thinking I am tired. Stay tuned for more hauntings!!!
