I hope that everyone has been enjoying their summer! Although I have not been able to post much lately, I have been keeping up with everyone's wonderful blogs, and boy have you all been creative! I just love visiting all of you, and seeing all the great redo's, makeovers, and decorating ideas.
Since my husband's surgery, I haven't had a chance to paint muchbut things are returning to a more normal routine now, so I am really anxious to get started on some really neat Fall and Halloween items. I decided to move my studio downstairs. I still have some tweaking to do, and of course a room is never "finished" but it is working for now, and I can at least paint and be in the center of things at the same time.
This candleholder is one item I did get completed. I started it several weeks ago, and got a chance to finish it up this week. This is done on a replica of a sugar mold, and I am so pleased with the way it turned out. While I was working on it, I had thought about doing something on the sides and back also, but I decided it would be so much more versatile this way. So after the holidays, if you have a shelf, mantle, or cupboard space, just turn it around, and it is perfectly prim, and can be used all year long.
Here are three Halloween and fall soaps I put together. I have already began selling these in my Etsy shop. As you all know I love to paint on soap, so I am always in search of new things to paint on them. They make the cutest little "gifties" for just about anyone.
