A few brief announcements of coming events to join:

Please visit my craft blog for additions to this party list.

A Practical Magic party (based on book or movie by Alice Hoffman) Sept 25


THIS JUST IN:  for all my ultra cool 4 legged readers.
A contest to show how much you are like MANGO. Unfortunately Mastiffs are excluded for already having too much cool quotient. By entering you donate $$ to the huge veterinary college.  Since El’bow can’t enter he offers tips here.  Miss Puddles had to add her two cents worth  which may not help you but are such fun to read.
(If you do not know Mango or the others but love the furries, go read and enjoy.) Oh- deadline is Sept 25. 2010.

Join Us!

Canadian  Nickel Scrap ‘n is hosting a Halloween hop party October 2nd.
There will be 26 amazing haunted blogs to hop through.   See more details listed in the comments below.

Events listed on my previous Announcement Post, some are happening now.

I have to include this 31 Days of Halloween party just because I want to share the words of Danielle, The author of Scrappy Arts and Thoughts :  You can be a “Wicked Blog Participant“, a “Horrifying Hopper“, or a “Sinister Lurker“. The Wicked blog participant, has to post a stamped project to their blog every one of the 31 days of Halloween. I am TOTALLY WICKED and I am going to do this!!! If you don’t want to post everyday, you can hop every day, or lurk. The choice is yours!! And did I mention the PRIZES!!! Holy crow, click the link above, and read all about the fun and prizes.

I plan on being a Sinister Lurker this year, but you never know.
If I do join in I will play from my other crafty blog.
The way I heard about it was from a blog with the great name of Sniffing Glue Dots. 

As boring and static as my blog is, you know I need to learn more about graphics and imaging. I am exploring the world of Digital Art.
I came across what sounds like a fun challenge, I want to share.

Mad for Markers @ Tracy Feeger’s  blog. She announces a new line of Goth stamps out now in time for Halloween.  She also has a nice explanation for newbies like me on what are digital stamps.

This is not exactly what Cheri had in mind for her Its So Very Creative Blog party (going on now)

but since people reading this post are the creative types I want to tell you to go join her party today.

Yes, you are CRAFT-O-Maniacs  or wish you were, so go visit Jen’s party as well.


Texas Monkey  for more crafty fun each Monday.
Next week she will be featuring costumes.  

ATTENTION BARN CHICKS!   Let Julie Marie introduce you at the October meeting  and Halloween gathering October 8, 2010.

My computer is freezing up so come back to visit as I will be adding more events.
