Only 83 Days Till Halloween!

Happy Saturday WoodSprites!

Can you believe only 83 more days till Halloween!  Oh my stars and whiskers!

83DaysTillHalloween

So what have I been up to? I had a lovely week of working on orders that are rolling in for the Halloween Season and not focusing on new designs.  Which is why I am here today to post a reminder of An October Monday’s Halloween ordering for Halloween.  So here it is:

To receive your order by October 1st your order must be placed no later than September 15th.  Remember I craft most pieces at time of order and need time to create your wickedly wonderful piece.

Of course you can order after that date but it will arrive later than the first of October. 

There may be a few exceptions to the ordering date such as the Boo~tiful Spirits talking board.  Those take a longer time to create, so if you are thinking of ordering a Boo~tiful talking board for the Halloween Season, please place your order early in September if you want it by October 1st.

Also, the later you wait there may be a chance I have to stop taking in orders, this will only happen if there is a whole lot of orders at one time.  

Here’s a peek of just a few of our whimsical witch crafts at An October Monday!

Oh and coming up this month An October Monday will be featured on I {heart} Rhody Exploring Rhode Island Blog!  I am so excited I hope you’ll check it out!

Well WoodSprites time to fly I have orders to create!

Until next time…

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

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!

Cead finished 002 Cead finished 003

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!

Boos art and more 001

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,

A Whole Lot Of New…

Yikes!  It’s been too long since I was last on the blog!  So much is new, new house, new wood crafting studio, new products being carried in a brick and mortar shop and new things up in the Etsy Shop!

So I think the last time I blogged I was getting ready to move, well we’ve moved, unpacked and even did some crafting!  Here’s a peek at some magickal things you can now order from us:

So you can see I’ve been a busy little wood witch!  All these new creations can be ordered at our Etsy Shop or you can fly on over to the Facebook Page and send me a message!  And while you’re visiting us on Facebook give us a like!  We promise to like you back 😉

Also, for all you Ohioans, if you would like to check out some of our items in the flesh Violet Flames Gifts, located in Newark Ohio, is now carrying An October Monday Wood Crafts!  And believe me this is an honor and a blessing for our little wood business!  I promise if you visit Violet Flames Gifts you won’t be disappointed!  It’s the best little hearth based shop in all of central Ohio!  Just tell them Julie sent you and remember to give the kitties a scratch behind the ears!

So for those of you who’d like to see, here is a peek at my new witch’s cottage!

So what is next, you ask?  A lot!  I have some new projects to work on.  One of them is a commissioned piece for the Earth Warriors Festival!!!  If your looking for a great festival to attend this is the one!  Sadly, I will not have a booth this year but I will be there and Violet Flame Gifts will be carrying some of our crafty items!  So make sure to check them out. Mark your calendar September 25th – the 28th!  You can register now by visiting the Earth Warriors Festival website.

And for all you Halloween lovers I will soon begin crafting some special items for Halloween only. Keep your eyes open for these!  Also, remember if you plan to order anything currently in the shop and MUST have it for the Halloween season, PLEASE remember each item is hand crafted at time of order so it does take about 3 weeks for it to arrive at your home.  So plan to order early for Halloween!

As always, we would love to craft something magickal for you so please remember we can and do personalized orders, from altars to signs.  If you are looking for a truly one of a kind piece or gift send us a message and let’s make magick happen!

Well WoodSprites time is tick~tocking away so this wood witch must fly!

Until next time…

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