Thanks very much to all who entered the Big Book of Mod Podge raffle!
I had added the question about “where did you hear about Cheltenham Road?” out of pure curiosity and had anticipated that most people would say “I’m your sister’s friend.”
I did not anticipate that many of you would simply say really, really nice things (I didn’t expect you to say mean things either I just didn’t expect the compliments). It wasn’t my intention to go fishing but boy the fishing was fine and VERY much appreciated.
The lucky winner (randomly chosen by Rafflecopter) was Suzanne who did admit that her husband is an actual factual magician so there may have been some Harry Potterness going on there but I’m not going to question it.
July is usually a pretty slow for me but this year has been a good balance of steady sales (keeping my one-man-factory chugging along) and time to toy with new ideas.
The latter is truly the most fun – just puttering away and playing the “what if I…..” game.
Would you like to play along?
I’m getting ready for the big Scare LA show in a couple of weeks so my thoughts have turned to Halloween.
I love the graphics on Ouija boards and thought they’d make fun coasters. But I can’t decide if I like the ones I made that show the full boardOr if I prefer the style that just captures a section of the board.
All I know for sure is that the packaging should say something like, “useful for summoning dessert.”
Well, actually it should be “useful for summoning spirits” (meaning alcohol but I can’t figure out how to make the joke work).
Or perhaps just “not for use at graveyard dinner parties or in homes where the host has recently been murdered.”
I also wanted to try a slightly different version of the Glowing Eyes Luminaries I created for Mod Podge Rocks last year
I played around with adding glitter to one but I’m not sure I’m ever actually in favor of glitter. I was hoping it would make them kind of ethereal but it strikes me as more of a “yay! Unicorns and ponies!” effect than a “creep me out” effect at the moment.
I do kinda like the “blood” dripping down the side though – always pleasant.
I’m a bit stuck as to size. Small tea light size or bigger so they have more impact?
Of course, not everything was Halloween based as I was getting my next Mod Podge Rocks project goingAnd finally, though this is not a food blog I did make these beauties for a Sharknado 3! viewing party.
It’s a long standing gathering – a group of us have hooted through all previous versions and I’m often in charge of dessert.
I put them in jars to make life easier.
The recipe was courtesy of Becky Sue at Baking the Goods and it was very easy to make.
OK, back to puttering – and perhaps the gym since I ate about four of those pies (good cooks test their food!)….I should probably clean the house too.
Or I could putter some more!!!!
