 A Woodland Angel...

 I spent my evening, creating this Ange.

I had a great time making this 
Woodland Christmas Angel.
 I've made some large angels in my time, but this is the biggest.
She is about 6ft tall. Her head is sculpted of Paper clay, and hand painted. 
Her dress is made of muslin, lightly coffee stained and trimmed with grapevine and golden glittered pine cones. 
She wears a grapevine wreath halo, and coffee stained Feathered Wings.

Trip To Olde Lucketts Store...

I've made my way to Luckett's quite a few time this year,
and shot many pictures for sharing here on my blog. 
The problem has been, I forgot which camera I used, lol.
Well, I found them so I can finally share them with you.

Oh, and it was my Iphone camera I had used to shoot these pics.

Can't wait to go back again, it's ever changing. 
Wonder what they have now.
(click any pic to link to Their site)


I just love The Olde Lucketts Store.

A Re-Post...

A Halloween How To...

This Tutorial got a lot of attention this year, so I just thought I'd Share it again. 
I've already made one batch this year, and gonna do another.
It is a fun project for all, give it a try and 
I have this little fun Project for you to try.
 I made these years ago and was just in the mood to make them again.
And I'd like to share it with you.
You will go from this...
To This...

Step 1.
Gather your Oranges,

 and cut the tops off. 
(save them for later)
Carefully, nice and straight now.
 Step 2.
Scoop and Scrape out all the insides,
Like So...
but be careful, not to rough, 
or you will get this...
This is what you should end up with...

Be sure to save the juice for Breakfast :o)

Step 3.
Get your tops, and
  carefully cut out the pulp from the tops too.

  And here you have it, empty Orange cups and lids...

Step 4.
Place all your hallowed out Oranges and Tops
on a Foil lined cookie sheet.

Step 5.
And here is where you will use your own judgment.
I baked mine at 275 degrees for 2-4 hours. 
Watching close so they don't over cook and burn.
Like my first batch did, HA!
So be sure to check on them every half hour or so after the first hour has passed. 
If they are to soft or burn to much, it will be difficult to carve the face later. 
Almost Ready...

You will want them just a little soft for carving easily and just a touch darkened.
They will shrink quite a bit.
See here...

Step 6.
Draw your Jack-o-lantern face.
I keep it simple here..

Very carefully use an X-acto knife to cut 
away pieces.

Step 7.
Poke a tiny hole one each side of your pumpkin, 
and run a rusty wire through and with pliers, curl the end of the wire to stay in place. 

 Step 8.
Glue in some moss and glue on the tops... 
Decorate as you wish.

Step 9...
