Giveaway: Teach Yourself to Sew Magazine and DVD bundle - Threads

I use a lot of fabric in my mixed media art work as well as my art dolls. I learned to sew years ago by reading books. I am sure I created some bad habits and incorrect ways of doing things. That is why I would love to win this magazine subscription and DVD.

My Computer is Down

My computer is down right now, and has been since Monday night. I am on the notebook, but I am unable to post any photos with it. I will continue the 31 Halloween projects as soon as my new parts get here. Hopefully it will not me very long. Meanwhile, I am creating more items everyday. I will catch up on my posts as soon as I can.

Halloween Project #10

I associate myself with spider webs, as in Charlotte’s Web. I use them frequently as a logo with my name, so it was only a matter of time before I used them in something associated with “The Other Side of Char-”.


This is an intro in a book which will house photos and/or printouts of some of my “Other Side” projects. It uses some digital paper from the Halloween kit “Eeek”. I added more spiders, both digitally and physically, and tweak this into a paper that I printed out. Then all of the rest of the embellishments were added. Hybrid projects are not new to be. I have been using my computer in my work for years, way before the term “hybrid” came out.

Project 1
Here is a hybrid postcard I made for this week's Collage Play with Crowabout. It is referring to another project in the works for my 31 Projects for Halloween.

75 Days until Halloween!

Yes, you read it right. 75 days and a couple of hours (going by my Halloween countdown). I better get busy. Since I can't create as often as I use to, I will be highlighting a few of my favorite Halloween artwork by other artists. If it is a card or scrapbook layout, it will be posted on my other blog: Paper Crafts, Pass It On

Doing Better

I have been feeling a lot better lately, but still need some minor surgery. I will still be posting just a few times a month, but I am getting better. Thanks for all of your kind wishes.
Now on to better topics. I have been doing a lot of digi art lately, and have found a few places on line to learn more techniques. I find I spend more time learning and playing than actually creating.
I also scrapped a page yesterday (physically meaning with paper). It was the first time I had since I became so ill. I think the last time I scrapped a page was in October.
I have 8 photos to scan and repair before I can do the next page though. I am still working on the 80's, and the photos are damaged some. No one even thought about acid free back then.
