Halloween Crow- Nevermore

I love crows for decorating this time of year.  And they are everywhere!  This is a $1 Store project featuring my crow and a Christmas Box.  I picked up the crow for $2 and the box was $1.25 and I grabbed the wee witches hat at Michaels with my 50% coupon bring it to about $1.50.  This whole project ended up costing about $5!  Not to bad.

I popped the cone portion of the witches hat off so I could wrap it in matching paper.  Then I glued it back into place. 
 
 
The 31 is from the TH Gothic Boo die.  I attached the tinsel and used my heat gun to age the tinsel.
 
I used up some old orange ribbon and attached this skull from a $1 bracelet.  TH Skull n' Cross is some perfect hardware I glued in place by folding the brim. 
 
Another skull and some glittery Halloween accents glued on top.
 
I made a banner with grungepaper and HAPPY HALLOWEEN stamped.  I used some walnut stain ink to distress the edges.  The attach with hot glue.  A little glitter pumpkin and Spanish moss complete the creepy scene.
The Iron Fence boarder die is wonderfully gothic.  The I attached the Word Band.  A little more tinsel adds some bling.
 

I love the Apothecary Skull!  He's so creepy.  Then I used the eye ball from the Remnant Rubs- Elements. 
 
Another great addition to my Halloween Collection!

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

TUTORIAL; Little Drummmer Boy...or Wooden Horse

I made a Christmas Drum!  I think I love this one more than myChristmas Village!  One of my "ENABLER" crafty peeps told me about a Christmas Drum she pinned on Pinterest, click HERE to see the Pin.  I fell in love!  I started collecting the goodies a couple weeks ago and finally sat down to build it yesterday.  It only took a couple hours and it was a blast to create.  Check out this beautiful Christmas Drum. I started with a teaser post on my newInstagram account.  I inked up these TH Bottle Brush trees with re-inkers!  I started with this round hat box I found at Michaels for 50% off.  I like it because it was already a vintage paper box.  Simply Stunning!  I made a line all the way around the base of the lid.  This way I know where to stop when adding the beads.  If you don't stop you won't be able to close the lid.  Don't worry, you won't see the line.  I used some twine and tape to give me an idea where the beading was going to be put.  It's a r…
