WIP Wednesday!

YES!! I finally have a WIP post on the correct day! Wednesdays, for some reason, seem to be my craziest day during the week! Hubby and I run errands mid week and we take Tae Kwon Do 3 times a week, one of which is today, and I seem to be on a constant run on Wednesdays--so I feel pretty darn happy that I am making a post today! Plus, Bean boy seems to be sleeping in today! Soooo I will type quickly!

Just a couple updates to what I showed you over the weekend and a few extra pics. Plan is tonight, after class, I will take my pictures and get things up on Etsy (finally!!!) tomorrow! I just want to have EVERYTHING done, but I am going to put up what I have done now and then add over the next couple days!

Ok... first off! Remember the Scare-die Cats I shared over the weekend? Well, I was doing a final grunge on one Cat and it decided to dive into my tea and spice mix and just get COVERED! I let it dry and I LOVED the look!! So, I am asking you, dear reader, to tell me which version you like best! The somewhat grungy one or the EXTREME grunge!

Here are 2 before the extreme grunge--
And here they are after the extreme grunge--

What do you think?? Which one do you like better?? Think is more prim-tastic! LOL I, personally, really like the extreme grunged one! I am soo happy with how they turned out, I am contemplating doing some Mama dolls! So look for them coming soon!

I have also been working on other kitties and kandy korns and even some bats!  

I love this kitty! I love the HUGE nose and the little button eyes--it was supposed to have snaps, but I personally prefer the buttons instead. The little Kandy Korns need to be sanded and grunged and then they will be perfect for a prim holiday! Here are some fabric leaves that I finished up last night--I really like them too--I think they would be perfect tucked under some prim pumpkins or a bowl of fall fixins.

I am tickled with how well they came out! I think they look very realistic, and I am thinking about pinning them together with a rusty safety pin in groups of 4.

Keep an eye here for more goodies to come! Till next time--be safe and happy crafting!!

WIP Weekend

My how time flies!!

Things have been crazy here with the start of school--makes me think of the line from When Harry Met Sally when Harry tells Sally how fall makes him think of bouquets of  sharpened pencils--that is how I feel! My daughter is a Junior this year, and the Bean Boy is trying to crawl--makes it fun and interesting with my crafting! But sewing and stuffing and painting I have been doing!! Let me show you!  

Remember the 2 stars I was working on when we last met? Here they are complete!! I added vintage buttons to both and I think that was what they needed for that final touch! What do you think??

 Here are some new goodies I am working on now and a few in various stages of being finished! Just about ready to get put up on Etsy as early as tomorrow! The owl is made from a pattern from Paxton Vally Folk Art, and she is in the 'nearly completed isn't she cute I can hardly wait to finish her stage!' and the Scare-die Cats are my own design! I am really happy with how they came out!  

More works in progress--after all, this is a WIP post, right?? 

Bats, cats and pumpkins o my! And lots of paints and buttons and other fun things! I am sooo happy with how all my goodies came out! After painting, and after they were all dry, my wip's were sanded and stained with my cinnamon and tea blend and baked till dry! 

Well, back to my sewing and crafting and painting!! Till next time, be safe and happy crafting!!!
