Practical Magic Blog Party – voodoo doll? – Zombie Giveaway info!

Hi Folks,
My post is so much weaker than I had wanted it to be – but life interfered with my high hopes to create an awesome post.  Instead – here is a WIP picture of my witchy doll with button eyes.  Her arms and legs aren’t attached yet but soon soon.  Hopefully I will make her a sister to sit along beside her!  See Giveaway info below the photos!!!
Practical Magic has always been one of my favorite movies as soon as I watched it.  I know that it’s a bit silly sometimes but I love it – and it displays the kind of fierce sisterly love that I have for my sister! So here is to some Midnight Margaritas!!

GIVEAWAY NEWS!! - while I am not hosting a giveaway this time around – my sister Rinni over at RINNI’S PLAYGROUND  certainly is! Just click on that big bold lettering and witchy your way over to her blog – that is the direct link to the giveaway post.  She has a super awesome Practical Magic Post going up tomorrow that she has spent a lot of time setting up the photo shoot for so I don’t have the link to that yet – but if you follow her then you’ll see when it does pop up.  I know she’s going to be doing another giveaway during Halloween!

Imagine Rinni the witchy witch brought back her precious pets and this is what they’d look like! Thanks for visiting and now go see Rinni! Or jump back to the main Practical Magic Blog Party post HERE.

Daydreaming of When We’ll be Together – Painting finished!

I know I’m so slow sometimes getting things done – but I have several projects that are so close to completion!  I plan to finish my first polymer clay doll TODAY!  I was very unmotivated and mopey the few weeks that the hubby was away in Japan that I didn’t touch any of my projects.

Here it is – made with Choma Aetelier paints (that I bought on Dick Blicks - love them they are so workable for acrylic paint, supposedly good for someone who is used to working with oils), Shetland white wool roving for the dandelion fluff balls and some very light blue embroidery floss.  My favorite little guy in the picture is the kitty.  Each of the critters is someone in my family. =)

FYI - folks - Rinni and I are going to be participating in the Practical Magic blog party.  Rinni is going to have a giveaway on her blog.  So if you aren't following Rinni's Playground blog yet you should be! - I've added her etsy shop to my sidebar on blogger.  Perhaps someday I'll list something in her shop since I'm so doubtful I'll ever have time anytime soon to get my own up and running.
