This Etsy-style witch was inspired by all the witches I loved as a kid including Samantha from Bewitched, Wendy from Casper the Friendly Ghost and the Wicked Witch of the West from Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz. I had just a tiny piece of the damask scrapbook paper I used for the ghosts and saved it for the right project for a year! Everything is made from hand cut paper with a bit of ink on the ghosts’ faces and acrylic paint for the ghost dust.

October’s a busy month in this family with no less than 10 birthdays and 3 anniversaries, including Anthony’s and mine (six great years…where does the time go?!)
Thanks to my family and friends for another awesome birthday last weekend, your thoughtful cards mean so much to me! I love you guys…Ann Marie, your fondant cake rocked and Superbaby, I will keep my monster truck card forever and ever! I got such a good haul I just had to take pictures…here’s one of the of the (eco-friendly!) dining chairs Anthony and I got for each other, the kitty approved bedding Anthony’s family gave us and the beautifully crafted Halloween witch from my family.
Gearing up for my favorite month, October! Here’s a sneak peak at a witch in progress that will be for sale and one of the gorgeous frames my sister Brooke Baker is making for http://www.cupcakealamode.com:
