Do you think Halloween is an evil holiday?

I love halloween and many people do not know the true history behind it. If you think it is an evil holiday it is not. It stems from a celtic pagan holiday. They believed spirits walked the earth that night and searched for bodies to take over. The Pagans would put masks on to full the spirits and make them think they were not human.The Catholic church made all Saint’s and all Soul’s day around Halloween to help convert the pagans. A true witch does not worship the devil. They worshiped gods and goddesses just like the Roman’s, Greeks, and almost all ancient cultures. They had a god with horns and he was not the devil. Think of fawns for example. The Catholic church said they were evil and worshipped the devil. I am only giving you a few brief examples. I make angels and opened a separate shop for selling my Halloween crafts. I don’t want  to upset my angel customers and just wanted to start sharing my Halloween crafts here. Just click on the address to view my new shop. I will be adding more items each week. www.ghostgap.etsy.com 

I will be adding a new post every Saturday!

Christmas in July

I decided to have a Christmas in July sale in my etsy shop. If you buy anything in my Christmas shop section you will get a free surprise gift I made by hand. The more you order will determine the value of you gift. Below is one of my Christmas angel designs. So many people loved my Swedish angel. I thought I would make another angel with that same hair. The braids are so cute and she holds a blue snowflake  jewel. She is available at www.angelsandcrafts.etsy.com  . Just click on the address to view. You can also order here. I only have one available in that design. I used these snowflakes on packages last year and only have two jewels left. When I sell her I will only be able to make one more. Since she is a limited design I would order her now if you like her. She measure 4″ by 3″ and can be hung anywhere you like.

An etsy shop in Loving Memory of a Mother’s Daughter

I have become friends with a  dear lady named Elaine. Her dear 12 year old daughter was hit by a car on 1-2-07 and joined the angels on this tragic day for her mother. I was touched by her story and just wanted to share it with you. Her daughter had a dream of being a fashion designer. This lady opened an etsy shop where she donates all the proceeds to bursary (scholarship) , heartstrings. So someone can go to a fashion design school or an art school program in her name. She crafts everything in this shop in loving memory of her darling daughter. To view her shop click on this web address  www.brynnalex.etsy.com .

An Apple For The Teacher Angel

I am always looking for new ideas for my angels. I loved my graduation angel and thought how cute the glasses made her look. So I had an apple scented candle with a glass red apple on the top and thought how about a gift angel for a teacher. I gave her the same glasses to make her look like a studious student and glued the apple in her hands that she is presenting to the teacher. I just posted her to my etsy shop and she is a one of a kind angel unless I can find more lovely miniature apples. She measures 4″ by 3″ and is sure to put a amile on your face when you see her cute smiling face and adorable ponytails with yellow bows. This is the first time I made an angel dressed in this shade of lime green and yellow. I only wish my photo showed how beautiful the apple is. Check out my etsy shop.

Graduation Angel

This is my newest creation. I was going through the store and saw some graduation gifts and thought wouldn’t it be nice to make a graduation angel.I came home and started to make one yesterday. I sewed her in a black graduation gown and made a graduation cap. I rolled a small piece of white cardboard and tied a red string to make the diploma she is holding in her hands. I wanted to do something really different and I thought how cute one of my angels would look wearing eye glasses. I got a piece of wire and bent it into the shape of glass  .  I just posted her on my etsy shop today www.angelsandcrafts.etsy.com. Just click on my address to view my angels for sale. If you would like to special order one just go to my contact me page and let me know what if you have any special request such as hair color etc. She is only $10 including shipping if you would like to order one from here or you can order from my etsy shop. Thuis makes a unique gift. It is my creation so you can only find her here on my blog or purchase her from my etsy shop. She is sure to put a smile on your face with her adorable ponytails and cute glasses.
