Pinatas, pinatas! Here is the finished mole. I love the way he just floats in a circle, waiting to be whacked. Mr. Mole is now listed in our Etsy shop. Hurrah! We sold a pumpkin and an owl. Here is the pumpkin.And here is a preview of Mr. Turkey. Continue reading More Finished Pinatas
We finished one more pinata in our smack ’em and whack ’em project. This one is the haunted house. We are having fun using up old boxes, long-stored paper, and some new punches Paula got at a yard sale. When you’re making a run-down old haunted house, things can be slanted, off center or slightly tattered and it just adds to the effect. Cool, huh?

I made this spider so his legs can be unattached for shipping and the customer can quickly attach … Continue reading The Sweet and the Creepy

It should be a Halloween creepy spider. One day I decided … Continue reading Spider Eyes

First off, my daughter told me I … Continue reading Pinata Challenge..Busted!
Day 19 of the Pinata Challenge. Here’s the flat owl pinata. It’s not totally done yet, but I got a good start on it today. Look what’s growing on our tree. This is the pumpkin pinata getting ready for a paint job. I covered it with orange tissue paper thinking that it would help the pinata take the spray paint. Then I painted some black … Continue reading It’s Not Easy Being Orange
