Bling Bats Ready to Fly!!

It has been awhile since my last post. Since getting back from CA I have not stopped moving. I will try and do a little catch up. My poor blog has been so neglected. It needs a Fall look and a spruce up. I will try and work on that tonight. In the meantime, I have been working on my Halloween ornaments for Natalea's, Kandeland Ornament Swap. Here are the packages ready to send out tomorrow.
Natalea hosts the best swaps. My "Bling Bats" are all wrapped in orange, silver and black tissue with tulle and ribbon and I added this tag to the package.
I can't wait to get my box of twelve new Halloween ornaments. Nat has asked us to each wrap them so we get a box of spooky goodies to open. Here are my bling bats...
I placed them all on my tree in the studio to show them all flying.
They were cut out with felt, sewn together and stuffed. I added lots of tulle and sparkly ribbon and a big crystal dangling on the bottom. I hope the girls enjoy them. Well off to the next big project...
Our Fall Zine:
This has been such a fun project and with some really terrific contributors! French Larkspur, Kandeland, French Kiss and more!! We can't wait to share this 36 page "Creative Home for the Holiday" issue. We are launching the Fall Zine on Saturday, Oct.1 but head over to our Etsy store and pre-order your copy!!
Continuing on with catching up:
We celebrated Don's Mom and Stepdad's 50th Wedding Anniversary.
We decorated the restaurant with photos of their wedding album and her wedding dress and veil. It was a fun night. Here is the couple cutting the cake.
We had family from Kentucky and Florida join us. Mom and Dad had a really nice time.
And of course I have been keeping up with this little one:
We've been playing with Goo and Roller Skating at the local rink. We are going again today and Mama promised to try skating, too. Wish me luck.
Well I am home this week and then heading back out to CA for the last 2 weeks in September for more work. I hope you are all doing great and I promise to make it around to your blogs soon!
