Whew! I got Nikki’s birthday party done. She had a great time with all her funny friends. Apparently, to keep this crowd happy it takes is a pool, noodles, squirt guns, bubbles, glow sticks, stick on moustaches, a couple of sombreros, sour patch gummies, pizza, soda, skateboard keychains, cake and markers to write on the tablecloth. Good times…good times…
We had to use the table that I work on for the party, so now that I have it back I’m back in biz! I’m still into Halloween colors and goodies, getting stuff together to sell.
Why is it always food? – T
Wow, it’s almost time for school to start! It’s been such a slow drawn out torture…I mean, such a short summer with the kids! Does it have to end so soon? Before you know it, we’ll be decorating for Halloween!
I can hardly wait! – T
The next big decorating holiday coming up is Halloween. You can tell by the way the stores look. My Etsy shop is no different!
I am in the mood to put together some creepy cute things! I made some more pins to go with the other Halloween pins I have.
These are a few of the new guys. They are trying to be spooky but it’s not really working out for them. Maybe they need a home, because without the house to haunt they just look like whiners. I’m just sayin’ – T
Yes, I do! Lots of POLYMER CLAY CANDY CORNS! Still on my candy kick, I’ve been working with Halloween colors. I need to be ready when the holidays hit. So far, I have itty bitty no hole corns, small corns with holes running across, medium corns with holes across and some vertical, large corns with vertical holes. I should have taken the picture before separating the different kinds, sorry, I am not letting them get mixed up again! I made these using Cernit brand polymer clay, I think it looks the most like the real thing! I bought the clay from Clay Factory Inc. in Escondido.
I used white porcelain, orange and lemon.
Whew, that’s a bunch! … or is it a bushel?
I wonder if I have enough to part with on Etsy? – T
Way back when my hubby and I were dating we used to like to go to Old Town, here in San Diego. We would walk all around and then have dinner in the Bazaar Del Mundo. Actually, he asked me to marry him while we were waiting for a table at Casa De Pico.
*pause here for a happy little sigh*
Anyway, we seem to go to Old Town a lot still. I like to go to The Shepherdess, it’s a great bead shop. It’s been there a long time. Nobody in the family wants to go if it means waiting for me to check out what’s new at the bead store. So this is where the candy shop comes in handy, sort of. I come out of The Shepherdess with a really small bag that cost a small fortune, and the kids come out of the candy store with a small bag that cost a small fortune! Everyone is happy but daddy, who gets to pay.
Sooo… inspired by the candy shops around San Diego and on Little House On The Prairie, I have made these.
I have them in these bottles because I had a request to fill that size. I am on a candy roll and going to make a zillion or so.
Outta my way Willy! – T
Who doesn’t like your basic black and white earrings?
I’ve been sick for about 2 weeks now. I may be low on brain food. Some of you might argue that I have always been low.
I really like wearing these. At a glance they just look polka-dotted. I made 2 pairs so I could list 1 on Etsy. Maybe I do need vitamins… – T
