Welcome to Jenny Allsorts, my cheery little blog! Hello! I'm Jenny... illustrator, designer, and generally artsy craftsy person, and this is where I share projects, ideas and such, and natter on about this and that. I love all things stitchy, papery and vintage. Pull up a comfy chair and have a cup of tea!
Its getting to be that spooky time of year. Thought maybe I'd revive a couple of the ghosts of Halloween past...
She's ba-ack... Time to bring back little Zoe and the Thirteen Nights of Halloween. I made some teensy tweaks of the song lyrics and you can get to all thirteen pages now instead of waiting for me to upload a new one each day. More fun I think... who wants to wait anyway? Especially for slow-poky me. For those who visited in prior years, welcome back! And to those who haven't yet helped Zoe decide which costume to wear for Halloween... I hope you enjoy this silly little activity. I had so much fun putting it together.
And don't forget about the freebie Halloween discs I posted last year for you to print out. You can find those here. (Sorry I had to close comments on that particular post, someone kept posting these strange long rambling rants there and I had to shut it down - sheesh)
Hope you are all having fun getting ready for Halloween!
Enough whining! My apologies for my recent harsh tone, onward to cheerier thoughts. Like... yo-yo's. My neighbor and I had a garage sale last weekend, and I found this yo-yo quilt in one of her boxes literally in the dark and bought it from her without even seeing the colors. Imagine my excitement when I brought it into the light! The colors are fantastic! There are quite a few places where the yo-yo's need reconnecting, but as far as I can tell, all yo-yo's are present and accounted for. Happy me!
I was doing a bit of yo-yo-ing of my own even before I found the quilt. Inside these colorful containers are the makings of some yo-yo-ish decorations for my white feather tree. More pics to follow when I have it a bit more presentable.
And in the silver lining department, Ro and I just ordered a new refrigerator to replace our old monster that decided to quit in the middle of the garage sale craziness. This blue retro fridge from Big Chill is the one I really wanted, but it was just too big. Oh well, I still love the one we got. And just for the heck of it, we also ordered a new dishwasher! Is it weird for a grown woman to get so excited about appliances?
