More Chenille Feather Tree Ornaments

Hi friends! I just wanted to share a few little chenille ornaments I whipped up. I like the Sourpuss Grinch the best. You know the type they want to ruin the holidays. Always stirring up trouble stealing all the fun. This one got a hold of the tree. Naughty Sourpuss!
For those of you wondering I am not sure about the fate of my blog. I have had some issue here in blogland. If you are like me and you have a blog you want followers and friends to visit you. I think of my blog as my website. I enjoy posting my newest creations and a blogging in general. For now I will continue here. When I know more I will share with you. Wishing you all a wonderful and creative week!

Krampus the Christmas Devil

Yes folks it is approaching that time of year again. December 6th is known as Krampus Day/night. When St. Nick has a horrible side kick Krampus. This magical Christmas Devil does not give out treats or gifts. He carries branches to spank the bad. Not only children but adults also. If you are really bad he will carry you off and throw you in the pit of Hell. Such offenders like abusers, back stabbers, cheaters, liars will be roasted in Hell. I'm sure we all know people who need a good whack or perhaps a worse fate. I know I do!
My newest Krampus is pictured above and I just finished him. He is vintage inspired and if you'd like a closer look he's in my etsy shop. He's larger than the one I made last year. Wishing you all a great week and don't be naughty!

Yeti Love and other odd folks

Hi Friends! I just wanted to share these little chenille Yeti's and Bigfoot with you. I had a request to make a few and then I got carried away and now I have a tribe. Which is fine because I like them I always have liked odd things. Speaking of odd I also made a little Magic Mushroom. I'm glad I found a way to use up all the chenille pipe cleaners.

Hi Friends today is my Birthday! I wanted to post some of my favorite finds from etsy! These are hints for my family. I thought many of you would like these also. So I'm older and wiser and although my life isn't perfect it is perfectly mine and I am blessed for it. As for gifts I would love all these above but I really need some new paints and brushes which I get every year.

Winter Wonderland Forest

Hi friends! Thank you to everyone for the well wishes for my foot! It is on the mend and that is a good thing. I'm hobbling around and happy about that.
I just wanted to share the rest of the Winter Tree's I've finished up. They are all a little odd but I think the Holidays shouldn't be taken so seriously!  I've got about 19 little chenille bodies that need heads. For those of you that asked me to make some little Yeti's I'm working on those now.
Happy Weekend!

Some Tinsel Tree Ornaments

I had a lot of left over chenille and tinsel pipecleaners. I used to use them in my clothespin and other ornaments. So I whipped up these little fellows. Their heads are paper clay. I like the Bigfoot the best. I have yet to make some Yeti's. My foot is taking longer than I thought to heal. I can't get it into shoes so yep I am a leave the house in slippers person!

I've Fallen and I can't get up...and snowmen

Hi Friends! For those of you that were hit by Sandy my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. The news is so horrible. I hope the recovery effort is swift! It is so heartbreaking. 
On another note I took a large tumble this week and I'm using my son's old crutch to hobble about. Which is not fun I can't drive. I am still sore and it's been a couple of days. I really do not have time for this at all. It also makes one think who in my life I can really count on. I have to say not many. Which is sad but that is reality.
So I have been making snowmen and working. I am not the creative type that sits. I have to get up a lot which is hard. I feel trapped. I should make some caged snowmen! Ok on the bright side I still have my sense of humor! I hope you are all well and had a wonderful Halloween!
