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!
Happy Halloween! I'm almost ready for the little tricksters. Porch is decorated, just need to find my big Halloween bowl and dump in the candy. Oh, the temptation! Toughest night of the year, but I am vowing to be strong and resist! ...even the very dark chocolate... maybe.
It's time to get your EEEEK on! The Etsy Digital Designers Team is having another freebie 'hop' exclusively on Facebook, this time with a Halloween scream theme. This Beware Bunting printable is my contribootion... print and hang as a warning to trick-or-treaters with mischief on their minds! The hop will stay up and running until October 31st, so waft over to my Facebook page -->here<-- and scare it up with 48 spooktacular digital freebies. If you get lost, use the DDTeam page to help you get back on track!
Now if you will excuse me, I must head back down to my laboratory, I left someone something on the stove... muahahahaaaaa!
Did you notice some Halloweeny things happening to Allsorts today? My Zoe avatar donned a bee costume, and I tweaked the design of the blog a bit in honor of the spooky season. I consider Halloween to be the savory appetizer to the multi-course banquet of the holidays. It's a nice counterpoint to the visual feast of Christmas to come!
But, on to the announcement. Remember how last year I created On Halloween as an interactive book for ITB? Well, I revamped the entire book, and now it is available as a free-standing app in iTunes! I added tons of interactions, and little Miss Zoe has two new costumes, a scarecrow and fortune teller. We also lowered the price to $1.99! Boo! ...I mean yay! Every page has new goodies... there are cute crows, cats, bats, spiders, ghosts and pumpkins galore that bounce, roll, dance... even moo! I hope kids will have as much fun playing with it as I had making it!
I'd be thrilled if you check it out, and especially grateful if you spread the word about it. I put so much love into this and I'm tremendously honored that ITB decided to make it into a free-standing app. You can find it in iTunes by searching for "On Halloween" ~ or simply click -->here<--- And a big big thank you from the bottom of my heart!
