Creepy Crafts!

I love finding paintings and framed art at Goodwill. This one was perfect for autumn and Halloween – the oval frame, changing leaves and a lazy river.

Just print any picture, cut out and modge podge onto the artwork! I thought a rocking chair in a river was a bizarre touch with a nod to Piglet.

Custom Rubber Stamps

I needed a stamp of myself as a zombie. I Googled “custom rubber stamp” and clicked on the first site linked. When I uploaded the picture I wanted on the stamp, I wasn’t sure how detailed it would come out. The preview was the exact picture I uploaded. I was also skeptical since I hadn’t researched custom stamps much (only the top 5 sites in the search) but this was the best site I had found for what I was looking for regarding size, production time and cost. Rubberstamps.net exceeded my expectations and I will be using them for all of my custom stamp needs!

To edit my image, I used pixlr.com and used the PIXLR EDITOR (the option on the left). These are the instructions I found on how to make on of my pictures look like a coloring page: How To Make a Coloring Book

Simple Auction Basket Under $20

When you have no idea what theme your basket should be, Home Goods usually inspires something amazing. Owls are everywhere lately but I am totally in love with this little microwavable plush. The box is a shoe box I wrapped in fabric I had. For the filling, I used tissue paper then cut strips of orange card stock and curled. Intelex Hooty Microwavable Plus $9.99, Taja Tea Saffron & Mango Fusion $3.99, Owl Mug $4.99 Homegoods.com for locations.

These tags I found a while ago at Home Goods. They come in a variety of shapes and colors with envelopes included. The font is called Wednesday from Vanessa Bays on Dafont.com.
