MIA because of Frankenstein!

Well, I’ve done it again, always going MIA or in 20 other directions.  I forget I have a blog! Especially when October comes – I’m just getting all my Halloween happenings going!  I suppose this happens to new bloggers or especially those who just don’t consistently blog or if you are like me and just have to get all the holiday activity that you can into your schedule!

  • decorating the house
  • making décor for the store
  • visiting pumpkin patches
  • visiting fall boutiques
  • going to haunted houses
  • Raking and mostly Playing in the leaves!
  • Picking Apples – Making Apple Shakes – YUM!  First time ever – they were a hit!
  • Baking Bread
  • shopping at Michaels, JoAnns and Hobby Lobby
  • Fitting in my Toastmasters Speeches – my favorite speech yet – introducing my Altered Books!
  • And did I mention making décor….oh, yes, yes I did….I can spend countless hours making things!

So writing/blogging has been the last thing on my mind!  I never fail to get updates out!  If you are on Instagram – I’m all about Instagram! A Visual and a quick description – that’s just my perfect preference because like I mentioned, I’m always making things.  I prefer to be “hands-on” right in the action of mixing paint, staining paper, stamping, inking, using a hammer to nail a book shut, twisting wires and wrapping mesh, or weaving a dreamcatcher or beading sequins!  Well, I suppose it’s better to have a short blog post instead of no blog post right?

It’s Fall Time and Holiday time so as a maker I will be MIA as I’m prepping to continue to stock two shops!  Things are going very well and it’s that Holiday season to decorate and give our homes new, fresh décor.  Halloween is a really fun time for me because I love making altered books and tags and cards.  I had a lot of satisfaction making my latest project and it is ALIVE!  – In perfect Monster Mashing style.

So Frank is just one project that has kept me very busy.  I have another book in progress and a bottle and about a handful of cards to finish to go with the décor pieces….you know me….I have to have the coordinating things to go with the rest of the things!  I want them to be the perfect gift combos!  I managed to make around 50 treat tags too – see the creations below – Hope you enjoyed reading and a peek into my creative world. Now I feel like reading Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein!  I always have time for a good book especially a classic!  This book is not available on ETSY – It’s going to the market, but I have a great Zombie Book and Vampire Spellbook in the Etsy Store – at the top of the page “Click Here to Shop Etsy”  and it will take you to the ETSY store!  Note:  I only have one available -never duplicate the handmade creations!

ACRYLIC Ideas!

Here’s just a quick snapshot of what’s in my shop and what ideas came when using the so called tree ornament shaped like a light bulb!

image

In December I was busy making Christmas Ornaments and I bought a few light bulbs ornaments, well, not just a few, I ended up ordering a case and misread the quantity! I ended up with 36 and Christmas was over when my shipment arrived.

I begin with an idea,  then it becomes something else. – Pablo Picasso

So I decided to convert them into hot air balloons and various eclectic, whimsical decor pieces! Its been such a fun & Inspiring process! My shop is stocked with these Cuties and I even have a completely different style too…like the electronic/IT gadget pieces which I personally love & appreciate having worked in IT department.

And being a music lover I just had to fill this one up with Vinyl record and sheet music! This particular one is a hanging ornament, but it can be converted into I piece that stands on the desk! Just adhere a washer with E6000 industrial bonding glue or I can do that for you!  If you are interested in any of these just visit my Etsy shop Eclecticat444decor. These make great gifts! And right now through February 29, I am throwing in a   FREE greeting card or tag with any purchase! 
Here’s the link.
