New goodies on etsy...


Poison bottle...  

Posted by: Crystal Cord in , , , , , ,

Well I found a tutorial for coloring ball jars on pinterest. I'm sure everyone one has seen it in some form or the other. Modge podge and food coloring and the oven. Well I tried it. Not on jars but some old bottles I wanted to use for some new potion / poison bottles. Little note if you are a control freak like me...probably need to have a paper bag ready to breathe in. There is no control on how these turn out. :( So this was a completely new experience for me. Anyways, They came out quite nice, but I did mine twice to get a real dark red. I was browsing the net for the tutorial and came across this one. It's nice because you don't use the oven and you won't get the ring around the top. You can find it here CarolynsHomework.blogspot.com

Here's my Poison bottle all finished....

He is available in my etsy shop...

Have a great weekend!

Meet Pete!

Have a great Tuesday.

Baby Bunnies and Rain...  

Posted by: Crystal Cord in , , , , , ,

What a combo. Yesterday we had my little sister's baby shower. She's having a little boy Jackson! :) We are all excited. I made her a little baby bunny for her table. He is just the cutest little thing. It was a beautiful shower with lots of family and friends. Then the real shower occurred...more like a hurricane. Normally I love a good thunderstorm. but yesterday was not that day. My window wouldn't roll up....so I'm standing in the rain with a garbage bag trying to cover it up. It would of worked too if it wouldn't of been for that pesky convertible top. No metal around the window. But, I'm pretty resourceful so I hopped in the car and turned it around so the rain wasn't blowing in.. As I sat in my little car and tried to push that stupid button for the millionth time I wondered why I opted for power windows... a little vision of my next doll came to mind. I'll be working on that today. The moral of the story....carry duck tape in your trunk....and even at your worst moment something great could happen and always laugh because it could of been that convertible top not going up. :)

Jackson's bunny is listed in my etsy shop as a custom order doll. He was awesome sitting next to her while she opened all her gifts. He or She is available in your choice of colors and Personalized with your choice of name.

Have a wonderful day! I'm off to sew!
Hugs, Crystal

Enchanted Pumpkin Pie  

Posted by: Crystal Cord in , , , , , ,

Sometimes, I just wonder where in my mind some ideas come from. This one just crept up on me. I think I was hungry...odd thing I don't like pumpkin pie. LOL,  I'm a Lemon Meringue girl. Yummy! But just my Mom's.
But, I do love a creepy pumpkin guy any time of the year.

He's now listed in my etsy shop.

He's a great little piece I just love how he came to life and is pulling himself out of that pie. :)

Have a great week!

A little witch....  

Posted by: Crystal Cord in , , , , , ,

I love vintage Halloween postcards, My favorites are of the little witches dressed in red sitting on pumpkins. They have inspired this new collection of Postcard witches. I hope you like them as much as I do. :)

I think I got it pretty close :) She is available on etsy. Just click her pic.

Have a Happy and Safe Holiday! ♥


A little summertime...  

Posted by: Crystal Cord in , , , , , , , ,

Planted all my flowers last week and they a so pretty! I got some tomato plants and stuff that I'm going to put in my little garden area. I was sitting outside the other day with my sketch book and my tomato plants began to whisper to me....make me...make me....please. Now how could I turn that down. I do have a thing for tomato decor. :)

This is what I came up with.....

I love the little rusty wire cage. I was a little time consuming...but well worth it I think! I just love how it came out. Granny's Tomato's is available in my etsy shop.

A Sweet Sheep  

Posted by: Crystal Cord in , , , ,

I don't know why I don't make more sheep. It's probably because they are just so hard to let go. I love them all. I figured out a fix for that. I just make 2. One I can keep. :) Problem solved.
Here's my newest little one. I hope you like her. She is a cutie!


On a Roll....

Well, sorta.. Mothers day was awesome here. My kids got me my roses they are the prettiest deep red. I got 3 (1 from each of them) and my honey got me a pink hydrangea. I seen this little cottage on pintrest with roses growing on the front porch and they wrap around kinda like a arch way. I fell in love with it. and somebody was actually listening. LOL That was my real present. But, I had a great day! :)

Barn Cats  

Posted by: Crystal Cord in , , , , , , , , , ,

Oh boy the flu has visited our house! I'm so happy that it has left. But, at least I'm ahead on my spring cleaning.

I finished up some new designs...I'm very pleased with these new standing cats. I also finished up a new fly doll. I just love her eyes.



These and more new goodies are in my etsy shop! These kitties have lots of attitude. They should they are the best mousers in the state. I just love them so much!

Well I'm off to sew another new design. I was a sketching fool during the flu outbreak! :)

Have a blessed day!
