I took a little break. We had some things I needed to take care of, and then I really enjoyed not having to think about the blog and then I knew I needed to think about the blog and well time got away from me. Which brings me to googly eyes....am I the only one that did not realize how far they have come since I last used them for my arts and craft projects in the 4th grade? I was in Hobby Lobby the other day wandering the aisles looking for a specific pattern of duct tape that my daughter had requested and spotted a whole section of googly eyes! Who knew?? But the ones with eyelashes instantly jumped into my cart and I was happy and an idea started forming.
I should probably back up though...I was at a friends house the other day (one of my favorite people in the world) and she had a cool sign on her mantle that said "A Witch lives here with her little monsters" and I mentioned I loved it. Three days later she texted me and said I left something for you on your front porch. And you guessed it...my very own sign. I LOVE IT....and every person that has been in my house since has asked about it so I thought making an art print of it would be a good idea and would be just the project that I could use the above mentioned googly eyes on! Lame I know but it made me very happy.
So this is what I came up with:
Of course I had to use my favorite black Ikea frame which has a mat that will fit a 5x5 print.
And the googly eyes...
And then I decided that the frame would need a witches hat...and believe it or not I had a small felt hat that I was using on another project (sad I know that I have these things at my house) and all it needed was some feathers and glittered tulle to dress it up and it was ready to be glued on.
And I could have stopped there and it would have been perfectly cute and I could have called it a day but of course I couldn't, I got the chalkboard spray paint out and sprayed the white mat and some wooden feet. Then I let my daughter doodle on the mat...
And isn't the eyelash eye cute?
So if you are interested in your own Witches print you can purchase them here. It comes packaged with a 5x5 and 8x8 print:
