Well I didn't get around to much paper crafts this week I did manage a doodle or two in one of my books but I did manage to finish two more windows for our shed. These ones are going on either side of our door now only 6 more to go Yikes 
But I love how this pattern turned out it already feels like an old window 

So here's my space this week and it's really cleaned off a lot because I could only colour the last 2 nights seeing I cleared off all the stained glass supplies just to try and make a lot of Christmas cards Under 80 days to go AHHHHHH!!! lol 
Other wise everything is off the top and jammed anywhere but here while I make my window up seeing It's so tough to do them in the hall way hunched over them This will all be cleared away tomorrow to make another window/s (2 down 6 to go)

so Happy WOYWW

Happy WOYWW everyone !!!

 The  skulls I had on my desk last week, this is what they started off looking like. Super cheap and not very scary just tacky!! lol Halloween can be tacky if you want it to be..I perfer the scarier side of it mahh haa haa(evil laugh)

Now onto this week desk
Well here is my space for this week and I've Finally inked up my LOTV clear stamps they where new and needed to be used so wrong to have left them untouched for so long but shh they don't know:)
Trying to design some stained glass windows for our shed he wanted them done yesterday lol but gave me the measurements today so it's going to take a while lol 
I have 9 in total to create and can't wait to get them done will hopefully work out wonderful 
he wants them all clear but ... I might toss in a little yellow just because I want to add a little something something

Update on the sketches none of them worked for us so back to the drawing board !!
Managed to make a few cards for Christmas like 1 and a half (it's a topper at the moment) so I'm trying to get some done looks like I'm going to have to print a bunch up and stamp some more up and go on a colouring binge then just make cards like crazy.

On going projects NOT done - Pumpkin untouched since last time but finally dry so will need to work on that once I can sneak the time

thanks for looking

Happy Birthday

Here's a sweet little birthday card that I can mail anywhere seeing the post office is sooo fussy about how fat you make a letter. They use to be ok about you sending things now not so much.
I found this amazing tiny flower punch in my dollar store it's so tiny but perfect for flower centers.
The little happy birthday stamp I used distressed ink on it and then just used a layer of glue over it to brighten up the lettering.

Little Devil

This one needs a little explaining with it My Oldest niece has dressed up for the last couple years as a big chicken to shell out candy she doesn't like to scare the kiddies and the costume is warm too they live up north where it's snowing at winter and you have a lot of kids dressed up in snowsuits with fun hats colours peeking at you so I thought this little devil just says it all
LOL that's my writing there as how would I ever find a stamp that says that !

Happy Woyww everyone So my desk is all about Halloween and touching up some of my older homemade decorations up they where starting to crack a little my creepy boys that I made a few years ago and thank goodness it didn't matter what colour I added as it would all work in no matter what lol
They are cheap Dollar store plastic skulls that have had paper mache over them and the guy in the middle thick paper mache glue (flour and water) and moss then you have to let them dry 100% about a week I left the guy in the middle and then have fun painting them up.

So here's my pull out I'm trying to make a funky pumpkin not sure how he will turn out but I'm hoping ok and this way I can slowly work up the layers on him and let it dry out really good. The fake knifes have been spray painted and I'm debating on if they should be rusty or not would look great for a Homemade butcher shop for my front porch would be fun 

Congrats to my lucky Winner who is ...

TO Win some Crafty Goodness check out my Giveaway here 

 So Here's my desk this week and I'm working on a big scary knife for Halloween it looks like plastic now But I'm hoping to alter it a bit to make it look better I've wrapped up the bottom with some Kraft like ribbon paper to cover over the plastic handle and I just found some spray paint that will hopefully give it a reflection seeing the little silver paint looks like paint and I hope that I'll have some more time to create a couple freaky things for outside to make those kiddies earn their Halloween treats lol
It's pretty big if I wanted to hide it along my back it would have to go half way down my backside so awkward for sitting

So Here's the stained glass window someone asked to see last week it suits the rest of them and matches in with the whole feeling of prairie style I tried to design them all to match up. The DH didn't want a lot of colour in them so I just used touches the yellow is so pale when up it's just a tint of colour and now it's all done they have all a dark black patina on them so you don't notice how new they are.

Thanks for looking and
