My 200th Post Blog Giveaway!
Well, it has taken me awhile to get to my 200th post but it is finally here. If I had more time it would have arrived a lot sooner because I love blogging. I try to make it like writing a letter to a friend. It's nice to think there are many wonderful friends out there in cyberland. So, in honor of my 200th post I am having a giveaway.
Viv, of Viv's Whimsy, inspired me to make a pinkeep. She makes wonderful, imaginative pinkeeps as well as other crafty things. She is listed as one the the crafty blogs I read along my side bar. I picked up the spider candle holder last Halloween and put it in a drawer hoping for some inspiration before this Halloween. A couple of weeks ago I opened the drawer looking for something else and it caught my eye. The pinkeep started to take shape in my mind. It was difficult to photograph and is cuter in person. The little troll is made with vintage upholstery velvet. He is string jointed. His little spider friend is needle felted with pipe cleaner legs and bead eyes. I tried to find pearl headed pins that were tear drop shaped but could only find round ones. I have painted little ghost faces on them.
If you want to enter the blog giveaway just leave a comment. I will put the names in a bowl and pick a winner on Friday Sept 18.
