THROW-BACK THURSDAY….

PurplePeapleEaterHere’s a little “one horned, one eye flying purple people eater” that I made a few years ago…silly little guy ate some people!  Polymer clay, a glass eye, and a few folks fill his belly. I can hear that goofy song every time I look at this guy sitting on my desk top.

LUCKY ME!!!!

Hometown Bank Prize  A new bank opened at Searstown in Leominster Saturday.  So I entered to win a prize, and wow, did I ever win a prize!  $600 in various gift cards from Shell gas, McD’s, Home Depot, Chopsticks, the list goes on.  Thank you HOMETOWN BANK!.  When I was there I also got a shot at the Cash Cube where I got $16.  Maybe I should play another lottery ticket?

BONE YARD….

2014 Pumpkin Mine 2a copy I made another pumpkin…this time it is totally designed by me and I incorporated polymer clay into the mix. I made the  little raven on the pumpkin stem out of polymer clay as well as the tombstones.  I put a skull inside a birdcage and added red Swarovski crystal eyes. There’s a skeleton inside a coffin I made and numerous skulls here and there.  I suspended a tea light from the top and the inside glows with an eerie hue.  BOO…you better watch out!!!

SCARY PUMPKIN CONFIGURATION…

2014 PumpkinTaking a little break from polymer clay, I made this pumpkin after seeing it on Tim Holtz’s blog. It was designed by project manager Richele Christensen.  I have taken numerous classes from Tim Holtz and this project uses tons of his products.  I started with a plastic pumpkin, carved out a place for the configuration box and added many altered bottles, domes and Halloween paper etc.  Head over to TimHoltz.com/scary-pumpkin-configurations/ and see for yourself!  FYI…if you are new to crafting, you need a lot of products to make this pumpkin and even with about 25% of the supplies called for in this project, it set me back over $183.00.  Also you need to read the directions real close cause a few of the steps I thought were in the wrong order.
