Scare Scene

I'm in a mad hustle to get things done this season, (who isn't?)and I need to get something on Esty because my shop has been moved to page ......37 out of, say.....257 pages. What a nice time to make a halloween scene.


Boy! I had a hard time thinking up a scary cat! I thought I'd lost my touch! But it worked it's way out and once it did, time slipped while I was having fun finishing these.
The scene is 15'' by 15'' and mostly made of felt, I've made 3 of them, I want to have some in stock. I must say....it's been awhile since I used a glue gun. Babe came from football and said he could smell the "hotness" of the glue gun. I told him that was my flesh he smelt! Note to self.....get a good trigger glue gun!



This moves my shop into current dates! I'm excited! C&G Design.

BULLETIN-BULLETIN-BULLETIN!!
I wrote this post on Thursday......as of Saturday, all three of the scare scenes have been sold. They went to a nice mother who is my first buyer....she asked me to wrap them with gift wrap and make festive for whatever fee I want to charge. How lucky am I?

If you ever need a black cat to model for you as a scary scene, then come to our house on Fur clipping day! Now that would show you two scary black cats! Two crazy black cat owners also… lol.,..

Great you already sold them! I remember how exciting it was to sell something in our craft store! When I first started to sell stuff I would think, wow, some body wants to give me money for something I made? It was so rewarding for me to sell something. Funny how some things did not get sold because I ended up keeping them for myself! ha...

Keep up the good work!

Thanks Skeeter, I was so excited I didn't even open it until after I went to get Jack of all Trades out of bed. Who, btw is sick! LOL

Oh no, what is wrong with my son in law (but loved like a son)?

CONGRATS!!!!!! Keep up the good work.

When I started reading the post, I thought of the fence scene that you made me one year. I love it and still use it every year. Do you remember it? The one you made now is cute but I like mine better.

Congrats on your sale and I know the buyer will enjoy the handmade gifts she is giving to others. How nice! Nothing better than handmade. Quit burning the flesh. Geez, glue guns are like really cheap-get a new one!

Hi Guys, Nothing to bad with Jack of all Trades, has the early head cold and he is passing it around. I'm sure our son won't get it, he's not showing symptoms and we all are.
He went back to footbal on thurs, he got one play in the homecoming before the OTHER coach pulled him out. He was spewing off. This Sat at the other school in your area. @ 12:30. By then he'll play because he'll have practise under him.
Your scene is under a quarter the size of this one, I have one of them pictured with a spool scarecrow but decided to start with what I have first. Yours doesn't have the bat but has a wire from one picket to the other. Pinecone O' Maine basket coming up, you should have one of those too.
Tina, I found my trigger glue gun the other day, also my swivel glue gun holder that I getting attached to the side of this computer table, it's nice to have, it has a tray under it.
PS, I have not given up on my clothscapes, just having too much fun "working" for me. I may never go back to my other job! No, Just kidding.....

Dawn, I did get your email and responded right away to it by clicking reply. You should've gotten it last night. I forwarded it again. I am not good with paypal. I sell textbooks on Amazon and they take care of shipping and everything and then just deposit my money in my bank account. Everything you need to know should be on your account or under Frequently asked questions. Let me know if you don't get my response as you should receive it.

Dawn said...

No. I did not get it, or get it now. Bummer. I'm not verified, so I need to do that, guess I need to send a request becaue it is not in history or on my statement. I really should do the shipping thingy.

tina said...

Just call me.

Congrats Dawn. I knew you could do it. I bet you'll be very busy with the holidays coming up.
Be safe.

Hi Lola,
We faired well with hurricane Kyle, it went mostly east and even Canada is feeling lucky, not as much damage as expected. One road closer to me washed out, a major route that was just finished being repaired for the spring. Go figure, get a engineer.
