First Halloween Gift Set

This cute set was made for a newborn’s first Halloween. The parents wanted a pumpkin hat and onesie.

Embroidered “Destin’s first Halloween”, on a black and white striped onesie.

Jack O’Lantern onesie made with HPV. This pumpkin onesie was simple to make. I used triangles, ovals and their offsets. Or you can use Lettering Delights Jack-O-Pattern Cut It sets. There are a total of 4 sets with differnt pumpkin faces and designs in each. Use it to make tshirts, pumpkins, stencils or anything else you can think of.

Felt Frankenstin Monster Pail. On the back of the felt pail, I added the child’s name and year.

image

To make the pail, I designed the child name on my Sillouette Designer Eddition software and cut it out onto HPV with my Sillouette Cameo electronic cutter.

Candy Free Halloween Treat

I’m not a fan of giving candy out as treats for Halloween, so this year I gave out personlized treat bags. The girls received Personalized Pumpkin Bags and Embroidered Pumpkin Felt Snap Clippies. The boys received Personalized Felt Monster Pails with a  figurine or car.

image

To personalize the bags, I used Sillouette Studio software to make cut files for each of the names. I then used my electronic cutter to cut the names from HPV (Heat Press Vinyl). For the pumpkin bags I used Lettering Delight’s Red Hatter font.

image

My Pumpkin Felt Snap Clippies were made using DigiStitches in the hoop pattern on my Singer Futura Embroider Machine. I was able to make 4 clippies with each hooping, with 4 thread color changes.

I’ll Be Brief–I need an Intern

iwannagrowoldwi_iwannagrowol1a

Yesterday, my sister and I were talking about interns, and I realized that I definitely need one. The intern will get to do lots of work, lesson my work load and  hopefully alleviate my stress. I will have the hard responsibility of having fun and crafting.

Intern Needed

Job Info – Intern will do all the work I that I need done and they will hear a lot of  “thank you”, “that’s not quite right”, “please do it again, but this way”, “don’t throw that out, it can still be saved”. My intern will be responsible of photographing, editing and uploading my items into the corresponding social media platforms – Facebook, Instagram, WordPress Blog and my Etsy Store..

Skills Needed– Intern must know how to use a computer and a tablet. Typing is a necessity, meaning the intern must know how to touch type or use QWERTY, and not two fingers as if texting on a phone. Funny, I never thought this was important .

Unfortunately, this is a work of Fiction
