Switching Gears...

Well, Halloween is in full swing here at the house, but up in my studio I am getting ready to switch gears to Christmas. I don't know that I will be making a whole lot of things for my SHOP this Christmas season, I haven't been keeping it up very well. I would love to see that change, but we will see!

In the mean time, I have had this idea in my head for a few weeks to make these coffin shaped Halloween pendants. I got {swiped} a whole set of old wooden dominoes from my moms house and Scott let me play with his power tools & I made these.

They didn't turn out exactly how I wanted them, the embossing powder isn't as clear as I would have liked, but I tried Ranger's 'Glossy Accents' first, and it seemed like it had lots of bubbles. So, they aren't perfect, but still cute I guess. I will perfect them for next year for sure!

I made the pictures using digital scrap booking images and Photo Shop. I had a couple more ideas, too- but you know, Halloween shopping is about over & it's time to get Christmas things out! I still have all my other Halloween projects that I started, too- banners, glass spiders, another pendant...So next year, look out!!
I haven't decided if I am going to list them on Etsy or not- like I said, they aren't perfect- but I guess that's what home made is, huh? Maybe I'll price them low... I'll decide later today. Maybe. Let me know what you think!?!
Have a great Tuesday~ Lisa
