This time of year, that's exactly how I feel. A bit of the sweet is still left from the pastels and yummy eye candy of the spring and summer palette. However my sinister, yet playful side creeps in as thoughts of fall and Halloween begin to trickle in. Then I received this gorgeous, huge ArtsyMama Originals sign to grace my vendor booth at Junk Bonanza made by the amazingly talented Cari Kraft. My whole world turned black and white. I have this adorning my studio space and I can't stop staring at it. The black with the aged shades of cream is just brilliant. Last year, after getting a funny little black t-shirt at Target that has glitter writing that says Sweet and Sinister my mind starting churning with ideas for a Halloween party in all black and white. Serving up treats in huge apothecary jars, have an old fashioned candy shop atmosphere with a sinister slant. The idea never truly left my head. So then it was decided this year would be the year of a sweet and sinister Halloween.Which leads me to my invitation to all of YOU in my
Sweet and Sinister Swap!*****This swap is now closed- it has reached capacity!!*****
I will take sign-ups until Sept. 1st. Partners will be assigned shortly after and packages need to be mailed by Oct. 1st. Your package for your partner should contain something a little sweet, something a bit sinister and almost everything needs to be black or white or both (can be any shade of white/cream/antique white, etc.) A splash of orange in there is ok. It should also include a handcrafted item, and a home decor item. You and your partner can exchange information about what style you prefer. Swap items can be Halloween oriented, but they don't need to be. Leave a comment here to join in the swap. Please make sure to include your email address.
