Well the Party is Over............


I hope everyone had a grand time! This morning its back to normal. Jinx is upstairs sleeping it off and i've been downstairs working on that sketch over coffee.......... Do you see that card lying next to the sketch??

Well thats some wonderful MailArt i received from Eileen the Artful Crafter.  We exchange some postcards every now and then. We've been doing it for quite awhile now and its been so much fun.  She is a digital art master let me tell you. Mine have a more 'homespun' look to them but some of the things she can achieve digitally is just amazing.  I call her my crafting guru. If you have a crafty question she can answer it  or if she doesn't know right away she will figure it out!! 

Hubs and i have spent a grand couple of evenings playing this game together on the computer..... Some nights we'll turn off a tv full of reruns and and just immerse ourselves in a Seek and Find game... or you might call it Hidden Object game........We LOVE them. Its fun figuring out the puzzles together.  And this one by Viva Media  called Nightmares from the Deep , The Cursed Heart was a really good one. The special effects and artwork are just amazing. And nobody paid me to say that. LOL! 

I'm so glad to all who stop by and say hello!! I hope you have a great week leading up to Halloween. They are giving a 90% chance of rain here for Halloween night so all the kiddies might be getting wet......... but we'll take the rain!  
If you made it all the way to the end of this post and you would like to be in a GiveAway for this spider let me know in the comments. I used to make spiders several years ago and i've had the urge to make more. I've seen lots of lovely beads out there there that would just make fabulous spiders.  
            * You do not need to be a follower though it would be nice if you were.........

              * State in your comment somewhere that you want to be in the GiveAway.........

               * I will pick a name on Halloween over my morning coffee.......... 

                * I will do my best to contact you but its up to you to check back here Friday Halloween to see if you've won...

                 *I will ship this baby spider International......

                 * You will have 48 hours to get me your snail mail addy and i will get the spider in the mail to you  as soon as humanly possible.. :)  Isn't this fun!!!  Have a spooktacular week!!! And don't forget to visit all the other tea drinkers around here all collected in one place thanks to Ms. Elizabeth!   Hugs! deb

I'm sure your party was a blast! I love that spider. I saw those somewhere years ago but not sure where now. I think my middle daughter was going to make some but not sure if she ever got around to it. She makes beautiful beaded jewelry....when she is in the mood to do it and has the time...which she hasn't got right now. My youngest daughter made me a beaded butterfly which I turned into a magnet and its on my fridge. I love it.

So, if Canadians are allowed to enter your draw, please add my name to the hat! I HATE real spiders but love beaded ones.

Loads of fun things here! How nice to do a mail art exchange with a friend-always a treat to get something artsy in the mail:) LOVE that spider-so of course I want my name in the giveaway! That is such a unique and very cool bit of jewelry. Happy T day to you!

Krisha said...

Oh yes, put my name in the hat for the spider. We will be out of town until Nov. 2nd....FYI for when you pick my name....LOL

I see your working on your dragon fly....looking good!

Happy T-day

Love your header! That spider is very creepy...I can appreciate the workmanship but spiders are yucky...please don't throw my name in the hat. :)
Happy T day!

Rita said...

I would follow you but you don't have "follow by email". Since I only can find you on Tuesdays I won't join the giveaway, but great spider, looks like that game is a lot of fun, and happy T-Day! :)

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

What wonderful mail art. That is something I've not done. Mail art for mail art's sake. You got a lovely "gift."

I adore that blog header and it went well with the party you had. I snooped, of course!!! Loved Jinx collecting the invitations.

I would love to join in for the spider giveaway, but I doubt my ISP will be fixed by Friday. That means I may not be able to check back OR respond with an e-mail. But I would STILL love to win this spooky, gorgeous spider, anyway.

Thanks for sharing your game, your art, and your lovely giveaway for T this Tuesday.

Happy T-Day! So sorry I'm late.
Your Spider is beautifully made, but as an arachnaphobe, I couldn't. I just couldn't, lol.
The artwork you've shown is so lovely. It's nice to do a swap every now & again. It gets the creative juices flowing down'st it. Have a great rest of your week. :o)

Vicki Miller said...

Cool mail art!! Love your spider. I have seen these but never made one. OK, go ahead and send it right out time. lol

Happy Halloween

NatashaMay said...

Oh no! I missed the party! Looks like you had a great time and who doesn't love mail art?! :)

Eileen The Artful Crafter said...

Thanks for sharing my post card, Deb, but I hasten to add that there's nothing digital about that one. Surprise! I did it all with papers and stamps and ink. Branching out - just like you.

I love that spider!!! Can you share what materials you used? I see beads and findings but can't tell how you assembled him.
