Halloween Banner and Jar Pumpkins

Here are a couple of Halloween/fall things I worked on. The banner I saw on pinterest. mine is a little different  Made from felt, I actually made one for my youngest sister and liked it so much I made myself one.

I hosted my bunko group in October and made some little baby food jars for everyone. They were easy and fun to make. Even my non "cute" loving teen likes them.  Am thinking snowmen jars for Christmas!!

Chicken Embroidery

Chicken Embroidery

My sister Wendy has some backyard chickens. She has some pics in her blog here She loves her girls and has been wanting some chicken dishtowels. This is a photo of what I embroidered for her. I hadn't embroidered in a long time, but I loved it. Am thinking of what I'd like to do next.

Snow globe in a jar


Looks like I've finally figured out how to post from the laptop. Here's a quick project I did a few weeks ago. It's actually a practice project for a glass teapot I want to create in. But for now it's just a little snowman and trees in a jar. 

 For snow I started with some craft snow that hardens, I realized I didn't actually have enough for what I wanted so I just grabbed the salt box and poured it in. You can see it even made a couple of snowballs when it collected humidity.
The top is done with a snowpen my sister got me and some snowflake buttons ( I just love buttons)
So glad to be back online again.... I have more projects but no pics yet..... enjoy :)
