{Halloween} Boo to You

Hello Sweet Friends,
I just posted the Halloween Printable Party Package at my etsy shop. This set includes party punchers/cupcake toppers, a banner, mini note cards and treat bag toppers.



Don't forget the games!
This Pin The Tail on The Black Cat game is just what the witch ordered!




Hugs,

All About the Cupcakes

Lately it's been all about the cupcakes. And this brought to mind a painting I did for my oldest daughter a few years ago. This project combines a few things that I love. Those are recycling old furniture into art, painting and using multiple art mediums.

So the Cupcake is actually painted on a piece of an old cabinet that was primed with a little gesso. Once I had the cabinet door primed I painted my cupcake. While the acrylic paint was still wet I sprinkled a little white clear glitter over it. To top my cupcakes I went with a fun variety of buttons that I simply attached with craft glue.

Spinkle Bakes

So my sweet cousin Heather has this fabulous blog all about her adventures in baking. She's super creative. So when she mentioned wanting an animation of a dancing cupcake my head almost exploded :)
I was off on an adventure of my own to try my hand at stop animation using Adobe Flash. I have to say... I'm quite pleased with the outcome.

P.S. Her dog is too stinking cute so I had to include the pooch!

Ichabo's Fall

Hi Friends,
In the spirit of Fall and all it's spooky goodness I created this painting over the weekend. It was a quick but fun focus on the end of the Headless Horseman story. Poor Poor Ichabod....

Enjoy!
