Potion Bottles




I made these POTION BOTTLES for my upcoming girlfriend Halloween lunch as party favors.  I used the free printable labels from The Graphics Fairy: http://thegraphicsfairy.com/free-printable-halloween-labels-potions/I got the little bottles with corks from Hobby Lobby, I thought they looked so old-fashioned and really look like potion bottles! I decorated each one with aluminum wire, dollar store candy, old keys, brass charms, Halloween confetti and lots of odds and ends from my large stash collection! Another little mini bottle with a cork is attached to the bigger bottle with wire. The labels were just perfect for what I wanted to create!

Silver Fantasy

"Silver Fantasy" Collage created 2-4-2013. This Valentino couture ad really inspired me to create this collage.
Happy Valentine's Day! I did this collage for Valentine's Day. Did a high quality scan and had 4X6 prints made and mounted to blank cards. Original size is 9 X 12. I just love doing these and got on a great creative high and did 23 collages in one month! I sent card to family and very special friends.

Now I know I don't write much on here, but to me "A picture is worth a thousand words" whoever said that! They say you have to be teaching something or people won't come back! Well, I think photos are so wonderful and I am a very visual person! If you are too then I think you will enjoy my blog. I am always looking for that next great image and love taking photos. Here is a photo I took when I was in Chicago on 12-13-12 of a beautiful old lantern at the Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago located on Michigan Ave across from Water Tower Place. I like the contrast between the modern Water Tower building in the background and the beautiful ornate antique lantern!

Merry Christmas!!!

Is there anything more wonderful than a day in Chicgo at Christmas time!? I went to Chicago last Thursday 12-6-12 and spent the day at Macy's. Lunch at the Walnut Room having the famous pot pie and Frango ice cream pie! Shopping for ornaments and a box of Frango mints! Here are some photos of the beautiful tree in the Walnut room.

Happy Halloween!
