Love is in the air...

Happy Halloween Bandits! I hope everyone had a haunting good time today (hee, hee) Joe and I stayed home bound and handed out candy to all the neighborhood kids. Not a huge turn out but some adorable ghost and ghouls did show up.

I finally up loaded the pictures I took from the wedding I went to last Saturday.
The first is Me(on the left)the bride (my dear friend Dyana) and my other dear friend KerriAnn

Next is Me and Joe

The lovely Bride (Her dress was just gorgeous)

KerriAnn and the awesome James (her boyfriend)

I didn't get a good picture of the Bride and Groom together. Sorry Lou(the Groom) It's all about the Bride anyway.

A lovely evening all around. Congrats!

Just a quick hello

Hi Bandits

Popping in to say a quick hello. I had a wonderful busy weekend including a wedding of 2 very good friends. I managed to take a few pics considering I'm not the best at remembering to take pictures. I'll post them later. I feel sorry for my kids if and when I have any, they may not have any photos of their childhood if I don't correct my picture taking ways LOL. Case in point I never did take a picture and post it of my Halloween lights did I?

On the crafting front I got a wave of inspiration and have some cute Holiday goodness coming your way. We'll that's it for now. I'm at my real job and guess I have to tend to my Job Blah!

Nothing major! Hey Bandits. In my little absence I've been creating and thinking about my business. Peanutbutterbandit is actually a second store I've opened on Etsy. My original store BedknobsnBroomsticks is still open and where I sold my hand painted shirts. I did very well with my painted shirts on Ebay and only ok on Etsy. I think due to lack of trying?

I'm thinking of going back to it (keeping peanutbutterbandit open) moving my painted knobs, ornaments and switch plates there and leaving my watercolors and original paintings in peanutbutterbandit. If it gets to hard to keep both I'll scrap one or the other. I just want to have a uniform feel to both. Right now I feel like I have to much going on at the bandit.

Now for the good stuff..... I've been playing around with fabric buttons. I made some cute pony holders and bobby pins. They are now available at bedknobsnbroomsticks without further ado......

These are just a few I made there are more in the shop. What do you think of my photos with book prop?

New Fancy Knobs

Hey Bandits, I hope your weekend was fun. Mine was, I got to do some crafting which always relaxes me and I think I found my mojo again LOL. I discovered covered buttons and boy are they fun to make. I have lots of ideas in store for them but here is what I did this weekend... I added them to some dresser knobs that I've been working on.





I also painted this switchplate cover to match Pottery Barn Daisy Garden in Pink

On the halloween decorating front I have yet to head to Target or Lowes for another extension cord so still can't show pictures yet. I will make it this weekend LOL.

Jungle Safari

Hey Bandits! I've been a lazy and a busy bee (is that possible?) I finally got the outside of my house decorated HOWEVER my pumpkin lights still don't light. I'm short an extension cord so one more trip to Lowe's and I should be good. This weekend I will have pictures to post.

On the art front I've been busy painting these 4 4x4 canvases called Jungle Safari ( Not very original I know) They will be in the shop as a set of 4. I think they would make a cute addition to any of the popular jungle bedding sets. I have some other stuff I'm working on but nothing to show yet. Knobs and switch plates so cute. What have you been up too?

Something Wicked this way comes...

Happy October 1st!!! I love this time of year. Today is the perfect fall day here in NJ cool and crisp. I'm ready for some pumpkin picking and hot apple cider yum!

I hope to get the outside of my house finished as far as decorating for halloween this weekend as long as the rain holds off. I have to head to target to get more orange and purple lights along with some outdoor extension cords. If I get to finish I'll be sure to post pics.

What do you do to get ready for the holidays?
