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 .

They are sure to make  you smile.    Pictured below is Patty who holds a green shamrock.  I designed her thinking of the song A Little Bit Of Heaven (Ireland ). I like to think of her as one of the angels who sprinkled it with stardust to make the shamrocks grow. My Irish Mom used to sing that song to me every year on my St. patrick’s Day birthday. For those of you who don’t know the story of the shamrock. St .Patrick used the shamrock’s three leaves  to demonstrate the blessed trinity”s three persons in one God the Father, Son, and Holy spirit.  The second angel below I named Ann The Irish Angel holds an Irish flag .  The third below is named Kathleen the Irish Harpist. you will be amazeh with the detail I put into making her hand sewn harp.
