Boo~tiful Crafting ;)

Ah Tuesday mornings…

The house was given a good cleaning yesterday, the weather is sunny with our highs only in the 70’s (perfect!) tis a good day for finishing up some projects and starting new ones!

Recently I finished up the lovely Cead Mile Failte ( A hundred thousand welcomes) signs, soon they will be up for grabs on the Etsy Shop!

Robert and I have mixed views, he prefers the Triquetra and I like the Celtic Shamrock but they both turned out very nice indeed!

Today I will be finishing up my personal No Soliciting Sign, and I think I will be creating some for the the Etsy Shop too… What do you think?

Boos art and more 007

Was thinking (the dreaded after~thought) I should have done an orange or purple wash but the vinegar stain looks nice.  Now I need to decide if I want to do a wire hanger or jute… maybe some little stars or bells?  Oh well it will come to me and I’ll share pictures of the final piece soon!

I also started working on the new spirit  board design!  This one is stealing my heart, the vintage art I choose is more of the wonderful C.R Gibson vintage Halloween art.  I am staying with a very similar look of the witches but this time they are all ready for Halloween dressed up as ghosts!  Two of my favorite things witches and ghosts!  Here’s a sneak peek at the planchette art work, I’ll share the board soon!

Isn’t she BOO~tiful!  I am thrilled with the design for this one!  

What else do I have planned?  Well I have a few older autumn signs to add embellishments to. Setting the the stones for my BOS, I will be adding these to the Etsy Shop soon and yes they can be custom!  I am hard at work on the Earth Warriors Festival Coat of Arms and some cool pirate signs… oh and of course some vintage inspired Halloween things!

Remember that beautiful drift wood I found a few weeks ago, one piece will be turned into a new wind-chime for my porch, Jake will be crafting this for me!

And did I mention… My crafty daughter has just started her own blog, My Art’s Beat!  She is a budding artist and I am one proud mama to see her venturing out in the blog~o~sphere to share her work and grow as an artist.  I hope you’ll go show her some love! ♥

What about Bugg (my middle child?) Well we went to Newark’s old jail to watch Ghost Adventures episode on the jail last Saturday night, so he is busy creating his own mini documentary about this haunted location not far from home.  Should be interesting!

Well WoodSprites time ticks on and I must grab my broom and fly lots and lots to create!

Until next time…

Hold on to Your Happy, Laugh till it hurts and Live in Love,

Some New Things Brewing

Happy Monday WoodSprites!

Last week my intentions were to blog at least one more time, but alas life gets so busy… I think I need to pre-blog and set them to post on certain days, yeah that might work.  But today I will focus on, well, today!

So there are a few new things brewing here and I’m excited.  I love being crafty and Oh Boy has crafty gotten busy!  Currently I have lots of projects in the works.  Here’s a list:

1. Custom Coat of Arms order for the Earth Warriors Festival

2. Vintage Halloween items in the creation stages

3. Blending up some AOM beeswax wood polish for the Etsy Shop

4. Brand new Spirit Board, with lovely vintage art

5. Oh you get the picture 😉

One thing I wanted to share was my very magickal vintage style garden tote my oldest son made me for Mother’s Day. He built my lovely tote and I added some artwork, one of my favorite sayings from the movie Practical Magic,  and some old looking knobs on the handle.  I love it! I told him he should make some more for the shop, come on sprites wouldn’t you want one of these?

TA DA!  A future master woodsmith in the making!  

My darling other half helped me get my hinges and binder rings in my personal BOS I am working on.  I will be making some similar for the shop and taking custom orders for these.  It’s not done yet so more pictures will come 😉

Oh and there’s a bunch more I am busy crafting, and yes I will be sharing them soon.  

Well Sprites I have a lot to get done this fine sunny summer Monday so it’s time for me to grab my broom and fly!

Until next time…
