It's Halloween

Yayyyy! It's  Halloween one of my  most   favorite days of the  year.

It might be...  because today is my   birthday  but chances   are it  has to   do with the   Autumn leaves  falling amongst the  ghost and  goblins trick or treating!

It's   so much fun decorating the  house  all month long  for this  one   day of the  year. It's  also   fun  to  carve  my  giant  pumpkins... which I  will be   sharing   pics  later  on  today for you.

This  year  my   giant  pumpkin is  only  135lbs.  A  hundred  pounds less from  last year! ( sad face)

With  all the  rain  here  over the  summer .. a  fungus    set in  among the pumpkin  patches here and   most had  to  replant  the  giant pumpkins. But  I still think 135 lbs is not  too shabby! I  have   3  other  smaller  ones to   finish carving too, today.  Yes its  last minute  but  what  better  day  then to  carve  pumpkins on  Halloween   while  watching   the  movie Halloween!  Yes I have to  get  my Halloween Movie   fix  today LOL.

Anyway....  Today I  want  to   give you   all  a  special   treat  a  FREE Digi and  a  nice lil  lacy Sunshine Sale!

This   treat  is only  available  from now  until  Midnight  tonight, Oct. 31st. EST.

Zachary's Post

Hello fellow Crafters!
I'm coming onto Heather's blog today to let you know some exciting news.  Heather is on a business trip to Chicago marketing Lacy Sunshine, and I'm very enthused about the days ahead!  The sky is the limit for what we can accomplish with these products, and I'm sure you'll love the direction we're taking. I'm torn over how much I should tell you, but can you see dolls, figurines, and rubber stamps of your favorite Lacy Sunshine characters, especially the original Eleanor and Pickles???
Or perhaps the series of childrens' books that are heading to publication?  We are entering exciting times!

Heather will be back soon, but until she does, feel free to contact me, Zachary the creative director, with any questions that you might have.  And be sure to check out my blog, where I'll be posting my new card.  Until then--- happy crafting!

Snow globes and more.

Snow globes.

Something  so  fun and  magically  about them.

Taking the globe in your   hands, tipping it  upside down, gently shaking it and flipping it  right  side up   watching the  snow flakes, or  glittery pieces fall.

I  LOVE  snow globes and  over the   years   I have   collected  quite a  few.

There is  one   snow globe I  would love to have  and  that   would be  the one  from the  Tim Allen  Christmas movie titled  The Santa Clause.   Some one  surely  must  have  made a replica   from the movie.

Anyway....  Since I  love    snow globes   so   I thought I  would  create   something  unique for crafters.     SNOW GLOBES  PNG Digi Stamps.    How  totally  cool, right?  

Take a  Lacy Sunshine Stamp of your  choice set it  in one of my Snow globes and  you    now  have a magical  unique  digi stamp  to craft  with!!!

Tonight I have   filled my  store  with  a  few  new  digis....

Meet Honey Winter Bee Sticky Wings and Bee Hive Snow Globe. You  can  find  these cuties in the new section of my shop.


Here are my  other NEW  SNOW GLOBE PNG DIGI STAMPS....

Scrolled Holiday Snow Globe
Jack - O -Lantern Snow Globe
and last but not least  Peppermint Holiday Snow Globe.



SPECIAL! From today October 10th, 7:30 pm EST to Tomorrow October 11th, 7:30 PM EST any regularly priced digi order will receive my new Beehive Snow Globe PNG digi Stamp for free. 
 When placing your order please do not add the Beehive snowglobe to your cart... it will automatically be included with every order. Thank you and happy crafting! 
 
Until next  time....

Trick or Treat.

We  are just a  few  weeks off from Halloween. One of my  favorite  holidays.

I have  already  started,  in my  spare time  decorating my  house. 

Hand painted  wooden  Candy Corns ( which I  made)  are   lining my  garden. Bushes  covered with  spiders webs and a  ton  of   lil black and glow in the dark  spiders   added too.   Lighted  Spider webs and  other   lights  have also been added to the   house.  And  let's not  forget about the  windows!  This   year I have  added  Zombie  Window  coverings...  With  Do Not  Enter and  Help Me  on the panels too! 

Yes I  will have  pictures to  share with you  real  soon:)   I  am looking  forward to  visiting the  pumpkin patch. In search of that one  special  pumpkin  which will  of course  have to be   bigger  than  last year's  197 lb.   Always  have  to  break   the  pumpkin size   record  each  year or   atleast  try too.

Can you tell I    really   get into the  spirit of things. Maybe   being  born on  Halloween  has  something to  do with it!

Anyway   to  stay in the  spirit of  things  I  would like to  spotlight Lacy Sunshine's  Guest Designer  Vannessa.

Using  my Candi Corn Sticky Wings Digi Stamp, Vannessa created an ADORABLE and  BEAUTIFUL Halloween  Card and  Trick  or Treat Bag.


My Candi Corn Sticky  Wings is  my  Challenge #18 Digi Stamp which is available  at a  discounted price  for  the next few days. You  can  find   out  more  about my  current   challenge at  my Lacy Sunshine Blog. 

So  what   kind of  crafty  Halloween or  other   projects  are  you  working on today?   For me  I  am  working on  a  card  which  will feature my  ever so popular  duo Eleanor and  Pickles  as Batty  Bats.  Here is a  lil   sneak peak of  me  coloring this  adorable digi  of mine.  I  created  digi  at the  end  of  September  2012.

I am  looking   forward to sharing my  finished project with you in the  next couple of  days.  

This   digi, my  Eleanor and Pickles Batty Bats, is  a FREE  DIGI  to  all  who  email  me  for the  next  24 hours  at  Lacysunshinestamps@live.com   with  Batty Bats in the  Subject line.   Tomorrow  October 4, at  2pm EST  this   FREE Special  Treat with  end.

Have a   Boo-tiful day!
Until   next time...

Amazing Alberto

Today,  I would like to  spotlight the amazing  talents of Alberto Gava.  A  gifted designer and  colorist.

Here is a card   he created which  uses my  Lacy Sunshine's  popular  digital stamp...  Eleanor Hippie Chick.


His  color palette and   skill   to  capture  shadows and  highlights is striking.  This  combo is   a dynamic  duo  making  the  digis come to life.   Alberto uses  the negative  space   around the  stamp perfectly. He  then  finished off his  work of  art complimenting this  richly  colored  digi with  vintage monochromatic embellishments.

To  find out more  about  Alberto and  his  distinctive  style please  visit his  blog.  

I look forward to  seeing many more of  this creative artist's   work of  art featuring Lacy Sunshine Digi Stamps, which will be spotlighted  once  a month here on our blog.

Have a wonderful day.
Until next  time,
Heather
