Horrible Hennie

This is my entry into the Plushteam Halloween contest. It's not really spooky, but I think it's still in the style of my regular stuffies while being different enough that you can tell it's for Halloween. At least I think it does. (Her little buggy pal comes out of the pocket.)

I should make some more stuff for Halloween, especially cards since we're now on the last day of September. Sheesh, where did the time go? I actually have a few new Halloween things, but I've cut waaay back on my craft buying because I still have a ton of stuff I just don't use. My Halloween stamps are old, but I'm tired of seeing the same ones everywhere.

Is it just me or do all the scrapbooking and cardmaking companies start to look like one another?

frog friend

I finally got around to making some pet friends out of the small amount of wool felt I own. I made two frogs--one out of the acrylic felt for N--and a kitty. I still have to make a puppy. And then it will be making the other funny things I'd sketched out. But now I need other colors of felt... and I promised myself I wouldn't buy any more fabric until I sold something. Which I haven't.

So I can make more black or brown cats, a few more frogs, maybe some purple somethings... I think I might even have white (so I can make a few black/white or brown/white animals).

And I need to get around to making some other stuff and putting them up in the shop, which has been languishing. Need to put up new stuff.
