witchie witchie, screamie screamie .....

..... happy happy Halloweenie!

I love Halloween, I love the decorations, the parties, the dressing up, the revolting party games (especially "fluffy bunnies") .... scaring the trick or treaters ..... I love it all!  And I know it's only September but it's starting to feel a little like Autumn and the nights are getting a little darker so I've been busy making a few Halloween goodies to sell.

But, before I show you the latest goodies in my MISI shop, I've got a little bit of a giveaway for you ..... but I will need a little something in return!  I've been toying for the longest time with the idea of printed cake toppers and party bags so I've made a set that I'd like one of you to try out for me.   To win, just leave a comment at the end of this blog and I'll pull a name out of the hat on the 1st October.  In return for winning these, I'd like your honest feedback and to know whether these would be the sort of item you'd buy .... anyway, here's a picture of what you could win:

Neat eh?  Six double sided cake toppers and six cellophane party bags ..... all ready for that Halloween party! 
And now, a shameless advert for my MISI shop:

Some Halloween Kits - five cute halloween handcrafted toppers, buttons, bows and loads of other bits and pieces ..... ideal for scrapbooking or card making or for giving away as a little Halloween present!   

And a rather fabulous Halloween Paper Bag Album - perfect for keeping those special Halloween memories alive and kicking!  Now reduced to £11 plus postage and packaging. 

I'm off to make some more Halloween goodies - don't forget to enter my giveaway!!

show me your .....

..... craft space.

I've been really busy overhauling my craft room and, apart from a new desk, it's finally done.  I thought I'd share some photos with you and that it would be lovely to see where you do all  your craft too .... so, why not do a blog posting  or even just upload some photos and show us yours?  Just leave a comment, point us in the right direction and we can all go and have a look!!

Anyway ... here is mine:

Yeah, I know, far too much stuff but admit it, you're just as bad!  Let's just hope the weight of all that crafty loveliness doesn't pull the shelves off the wall!

Cubby hole shelves, full of useful goodies.  I lined the back with Rose Garden paper from Papermania and I'm rather pleased with how they turned out.  My rather poor collection of Copic pens is underneath (note to self  "buy more").

A nice new home for my punchies .....

..... and a whole printer's tray to fill .....

I've had these letters for ages .....

..... and these, can't think why I didn't think of putting them there before!

Neat eh?  And, I think, worth the three weeks that it has taken ..... it's been such hard work and pretty much everything that could go wrong has gone wrong.  But I'm looking forward to many crafty hours in here and my fingers are just itching to start.

Now, let's see yours!
