What a call!

We recently repainted my craft room in green and orange and I really wanted an orange phone for it, trust me they are not easy to find. So we went to see my parents and in my step-dad’s garage he had an old rotary phone…it was orange and it worked!!! I had never even noticed it. He let me bring it home and of course I had to play with it a little. So I used rub-on transfers from Me & My Big Ideas’ “Decorative Ornaments” and the fly rub-on by Tinkering Ink “Blur/Cake.” I love it and it is sooo perfect for my room. Let me know what “everyday” item you have made into your own piece of art.

I love this plain desk calendar from Mead that I can decorate myself! For this month I used…
Stamps from Heidi Swapp month stamps, Inkadinkado’s “Fall Season,” Inkadinkado’s “Harvest Assortment,” studio g’s “series 20 and 34,” and Autumn Leaves’ “Fall in Love” and “Scarecrow.” Color Box Mini Black, Tsukineko’s Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate, and Tsukineko’s Versa Magic Gingerbread were the perfect inks for this project. Add a little color with some color pencils and you're done. I hope you are adding a little “art and crafts” to your days! Tell me about it.

A little vinyl, a Cricut machine, a few pumpkins and some time to kill will give you some cute decorations with no mess. I used “Plantin Schoolbook,” “Opposites Attract” and “October 31st.” I love the bat as an apostrophe and the raven perched on the “L” on the “Long’s pumpkin.” And while spiders are far from my favorite creature I’m afraid I’ve gotten very attached to this one.
