Winners & Halloween Projects

What a beautiful day it was yesterday. I wanted to have each one of my 3 kids pull 3 names for the drawing but you know how cooperative they were, they are 4,3 & 1 now. So I drew names from a plate. (Because I don't own a hat) TaDa! and here are the winners!
I'll be packing them up today & shipping them out tomorrow. Thank you SO much everyone for supporting me. I am so blessed to have so many nice friends in the blog world. Here's what I worked on last week. The majority of the projects were Halloween.
These are Halloween Atcs for this swap hosted by Dani of Ambitions Designs Studio. We were assigned to make two and send them to 2 people. I also made one to keep for myself and one to send to Dani. OF course I wanted vintage themed because vintage Halloween Art is so much sweeter and more kind than today. It seems everything today is scary and bloody. Yuck! Honestly Halloween is one of my least favorite holidays. I know. I can hear the gasp coming from all of you. It seems to be a favorite in the crafting world but I hate to be scared and orange isn't one of my favorite colors. However I do love coordinating what my family's Halloween costumes will be like me and my husband being the kind and queen and our daughters princesses and my son the heir to the throne.



I also made a requested project from Monica at Ruby Begonia's to make clip art atcs and put hangers on them like little ornaments for her stores Halloween theme as of now. I added little vintage rhinestone trinkets and vintage buttons. Of course some handwriting. I feel like I can't send out a piece of my artwork without writing on it.

Didn't the sky yesterday look like the heavens were opening up? The rays coming through the clouds. Just beautiful!
