Blakenetizen's DIY Halloween

Halloween is one of my favorite Holidays, this year doe to my lack of budget I decided to make it a DIY Halloween, its a last minute thing but I am going to decorate my apartment building with all handmade decorations on the big day!

 Here are a few ideas:

Collect materials from all over the house, even the garden

You can make spooky zombie Halloween Dolls, just add a little acrylic paint to some neglected or broken dolls!

Empty Milk jugs and glass jars are perfect to make luminaries, just tape on a spooky image and add a tea light, you can add some sand, stones or gravel to keep the tea light in place

You can make "bloodshot eye" window decals out of recycled paper,or a spooky wreath for your door out of dry garden materials

 Make a graveyard out of cardboard tombstones!

Cut the tombstones out of a large box and add a little spray paint and detail them w a sharpie or black crayon!

Make bones for your graveyard!

Make the bones out of wrapped up bubble wrap, white tissue paper and tape.

Make Fun Bats out of cardboard and paint! make sure to punch a hole on top so you can add string to hang them.

I hope These ideas help inspire you, Have a Fun Safe Halloween Everyone!

Vintage Dino Trouble

So today a set of my vintage rubber dinosaurs sold over at my Etsy shop! Yipee!
The bad news is that later that day while I was still at work the SAME set sold at my Yardsellr store,
I didn't get a chance to remove it from my other shop!

 I usually list the same items in multiple shops to get more exposure, but i guess that isn't going to work anymore, i'm gonna have to dedicate each shop its own inventory or something,

So I had to refund the yardsellr customer, I listed a similar set exclusively at my yardsellr at the same price in case she comes back :) which I hope she does,

Fly me to the moon
Let me sing among those stars
Let me see what spring is like 
On Jupiter and Mars  
In other words,hold my hand  
In other words, baby kiss me  
Fill my heart with song 
Let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for All I worship and adore  
In other words, 
please be true
In other words,
I love you
