Belinda The Little Witch

I have something to share that I worked really hard on. I created some new Vintage Halloween items for my shop. It all started with a little story in my head and my sketch pad. Using sketches is new to me and I must say I'm really loving the idea. This is the story of Belinda the Little Witch!
It was Belinda’s first year at Witchcraft Academy. Her very favorite classes were “Animal Husbandry” and “You and Your Familiar“. She found her true passion was spending time in the Bat Belfry. Belinda loved sitting in the Belfry tower at dusk as the bats left for the night!
I can imagine a little girl having a Birthday party or Halloween party and using all of these handmade supplies. I also can see it all set up in a barn for a Autumn or Harvest party. Can't you see all the candles, pumpkins, and silhouettes?! So fun! I hope its a success I worked really hard on it.

My Boy Scout

My Keegan is a Boyscout. He started Cub scouts as a Bear Cub in 3rd grade. He is now going into 6 grade and plans to go all the way to an Eagle Scout. We are really proud of all the hard work he has done. Boy scouts isn't just about fun. They do a lot of great volunteer work and learn so much about the environment. I have seen him grow and mature by being in boy scouts. I really think its helped him become a more giving, better person. I love the experiences it gives him. He was even on the front page of the news paper this summer! He volunteered to put up flags in 108 degree heat!
I normally do not do fund raisers. But, I believe in Boy scouts and popcorn sales fund almost ALL of Keegans activity.  70% of every purchase of popcorn is returned to the Scout, his troop or pack and his council. This is how he pays for supplies, camping, and trips.
This is why Keegan says he loves boy scouts "I love to go camping. I love to work hard and earn rewards.I get to spend special time with my friends. I like learning how to help the Earth and people."
This is how he said selling popcorn helps him "It allows me to go camping and do service for others."
So if you would like to purchase popcorn from Keegan it is all done online and shipped directly to you. If you would like an e-mail invitation to the catalogue to buy popcorn please e-mail me at
If you would like it would also be great if you passed on the info.
Keegan and I thank you!

Crafty Coffin Mini Halloween Kit






This week and next week are crazy for me. School starts the 22nd. My husbands b-day is this weekend. My Keegans' birthday party is the next weekend. Plus there is shopping, dentist appt, doc appt, band equipment,  hair cuts etc. Phew I'm already tired! However I did manage to put together a mini Halloween kits. I loved how everything looked in little piles on my kitchen table. So I took a few pictures. I kind of made a story to go along with my little collage.
A sweet little witch entered her jar of Pickled Eyeballs in the Spooky County Fair. And she won first place and got a ribbon! Hehe I think the heat is getting to me! If your interested in purchasing one of the kits they are in my shop!
