It's October!

Hello folks, thank you for tuning in for another nail biting installment of Jo Bloggs. Much has been happening in the world of Me!
The other week, whilst at the car boot I chanced upon Victorian  french, paper scraps. You know the kind, delicate Victorians collected and pasted into scrap books, hence the name. If I didn't have a mortgage and children to feed I would have bought the lot, as it is I satisfied myself with six beauties, four of which I then set about to play with.
feast your eyes upon theses.
Isn't he handsome?
Gone Fishing
I thought these little chaps would make great dolls so off to the photocopier,
colour copied

Transferred onto fabric
Stitched and stuffed
I will finish these off for next week when they will have been embellished, I like the sound of that.

Onto other things, The Edgar Allen Poe, book, what a joy to play with. And if you are working on a project about a person and his or her work, you just have to read some of their, "stuff". It's only polite.

A little tell tailing heart, anyone?
A Raven
A dream within a dream
Great fun to work on, just a little embellishment and it will be finished in time for display at our Halloween party. I will show all the preparations and indeed the night its self to you on the blog. Also for the great evening we need a cook book and mine is coming on well,

Some recipe cards!
Most recipes are from Martha Stewart fabulous Halloween book
Onto journaling, oh joy, All three books are coming on in leaps and bounds, and I can't tell you how much fun it is to work on them.

September complete
October raring to go!
The mini A.T.C, journal,
looking good
and ready for the witching month.
The altered book journal is still my favorite I think. Any crafty leftovers get put in it. Anything I have enjoyed  creating for a different project, gets recreated and placed in it as a keep sake of those project that will leave my possession.
Fabulous new mask
Mr Poe, himself.
Happy first of Halloween!
Well I think that will have to do for this week. I have to go and  make a horse! More on that later, Artfully yours, Jo X.
