Only 83 Days Till Halloween!

Happy Saturday WoodSprites!

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


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,
