Did you already started decorating for halloween?

It´s the first of october today. So my first halloween decorations are coming out of the boxes. (I always make myself wait with decorating untill october 1th.)

I wanted to hang something cute next to my frontdoor, so I was searching on etsy. I stumbled upon this cute cross stitch pattern by sewingseed
I combined it with little crocheted pumkins from my teenie halloweenie garland

But how about you? Did you guys already started decorating?

steampunk part 2: TOFF 9

Hi there,

The Octopede Factory (one of my favourite shops on etsy) got this great friday challenge (TOFF)! It´s simple, every week she chooses a theme and you get to design something (a card, a box, or something else) around this theme. If you use a stamp from from her shop, you will be entered into a prize draw at the end of the month.
I really liked the idea and her designs, but never found the time to put something together. But this week, the theme was STEAMPUNK! Yeah! I just had to make something and this is it.

Every steampunk girl loves tea right?

So the last couple of weeks, I am exploring the world of steampunk! It all started with the novel Steamed by Katie Macallister!!

Two nights ago, I started to look at steampunk crochet patterns and I found this lacy wristers pattern by KrochetLove. I fell in love instantly. That night I finished the first one, I added some steampunk like buttons and here it is:

If you want to make this lacy wristers for yourself, visit the KrochetLove blog, thanks for sharing the pattern!

Then when visiting etsy I stumbled upon some great steampunk art! I purchased one of her digital stamps and started crafting right away:

For more of her amazing artwork visit the blog TheOctopedeFactory

So maybe my next amigurumi pattern will be something steamy too!

embroidery art

Finally I finished my embroidery art!!! I made three little hoops, one with a bat, a vampire and a skull. Besides this I included buttons, several different stitches, little scissor charms, felt, and yarn.

I think you have to be a little weird to create. That was what I was thinking about when I designed these pieces of embroidery art.

I hope you like them. They are for sale in my etsy shop!

cats.... cats..... and more cats......

So I thought I would have some peace in het house by now. But I thought wrong.

This week the 5 kittens I got from the shelter are big enough to go to their new homes. It´s about time, ´cause they are getting to big. They turned into little monsters the last couple of days.....
Half an hour ago my phone rang. Someone from the shelter asked me, if I could take in 4 kittens who are now 5 weeks old. I just could´nt say no. So when those five little monsters leave, 4 new ones arrive.
Please please be a little patient with me.... The next couple of weeks, will be about kittens I fear. I hope I can squeeze in photographing my new products and designing a pattern, but I am just not sure when they will arrive....

one of my little monsters who is going to a new home tomorrow!

Something I made myself! I took a picture of me and my husband, then I drew around our faces, making sure I highlighted everything I wanted to show on the silhouette. After this I cut them out, traced them onto black paper, and cut again. I think the result is pretty good!
If you want to make them yourself, there is a great book in stores. It has all the information you need to make them plus black and decorated paper! I absolutely loved it!!!!
Silhouette Art: Papers, Instructions, and Patterns for Making Modern Heirlooms.

this is me

my lovely husband
do it yourself!
