When Pumpkins and The Sewing Box Collide

Hi everyone! I wanted to share some new jol's with you. I was inspired by my friend Pam to finish up several unfinished projects. I had all these jol's without faces laying around. I knew I wanted to give them a primitive look. So I used buttons, watch gears and safety pins for their faces. Kind of a steampunk feel, but more prim. I wanted them to have the dugout of the dirt look.
I am now working on some treats for a giveaway so check back soon for that!
Happy Earth Day!

The Art of Arthur Rackham

Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) was a popular artist and illustrator in his time. This English man was known for his magical works that had a slightly dark quality to them. He illustrated such classics as Brothers Grimm and Aesop's Fables. I love his Witches and black cats! Just Magical!
