New Pattern Coming & Some News!

I wanted to pop on here and let you in on the latest..... I am done with my two latest snowmen! I will have another week before the actual pattern for them is finished however. This pattern will feature both these snowmen! The name of this pattern....All My Friends Are Flakes!

I will be doing some fun things for my 30th. Anniversary so part of next week will be toast, I tried to get this pattern done before but it just isn't going to happen. Be looking for it by the end of next week! Here are the sneak peek pictures. This duo will be for sale soon as well, not sure if I will keep them as a set or not yet.

This pattern will have detailed instructions on how to make all you see here including the tag template to print out the tag.
Here is a close up of the sign and one of those cute clay buttons!
And last but not least is a close up of the hat brim d├ęcor.
In other news... I just received my copy of the Autumn Prims! I am excited because another one of my pieces have been published in this issue! This will hit stores the first of September, or you can go online and get it at at that time as well. Right now it shows the current issue.
Here is the cover....
There are so many great things in this issue!! eye candy really.

New Pattern and other happenings....

Happy August! I am popping in here to share the latest goings on. First off I am happy to report that as of today my craft room has air-conditioning....YEAH I am excited because I can now be out there comfortably and may even get something done now. We have been in the upper 90's forever now and it has been tough.

Here is a quote I read recently that I just love by Vincent Van Gogh - "If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint', then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced"

Next up is my latest pattern....Pumpkin Pete & His Creepy Candy Corn! He loves his candy and he has a few missing teeth to prove it! He is a fun one to put together. This little make-do is made on an antique spool and rusty candle pan. He has a polymer clay sucker and buttons, paper clay candy corn too. Here are some pictures....

This is a hoot! I love goofy stuff like this!

buttons are made from polymer clay using LeeAnn Kress technique. See my tutorial links and you will find it.

Polymer sucker is made using the same technique and LeeAnn shows you how to do this as well.
Next up is a new product I found lately that I am in love with!
This DecoArt glamour dust Ice Crystal glitter paint is wonderful! It brushes on about anything including paper tags just fine. It adds a very fine shimmer/sparkle and you can add more layers for even more sparkle if you wish. It is not over-bearing and adds the perfect touch to areas you may not want anything heavy on like those sweet little faces. I brushed on a coat over my new tags, brushed the outfit and face of my ginger and snowman, I absolutely love it!!
I just love this time of year when the sunflowers are in bloom, this reminds me of Fall coming. I think this must be one of my most favorite flowers. I took this in a neighbors garden.
I am blessed to be surrounded by bountiful wildlife at my house, I have lots of deer I see everyday. Here are two bucks off my front yard yesterday, aren't they handsome?

He is sporting some fabulous horns there!

How sweet is this, this baby spotted me in my front yard and his tail went up and he pranced around like he was hoping to scare me off, LOL. I have seen so many babies this year, lots of mamas have had twins as well. They get used to us and hardly give us a glance anymore really.
My nutrisystem diet is going well, since June 30th I have lost 10 lbs so far!! I have a long way to go but I feel positive I can manage this. I am so looking forward to finding the thin me hiding in there somewhere.
I hope your summer is going well! We have a few more trips to take before the snow flies this year. I look forward to sharing the new things to come in the crafting world with all of you!
