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.

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.

Italian Flag Angel

This is the latest in my collection of flag angels. She measures 4″ by 3″ and can be hung anywhere. Even if you are not Italian she makes an adorable addition to your angel collection. I designed her to be enjoyed all year long. She would make a great birthday gift for an Italian friend or a nice gift for a friend in the hospital. I also think it would be nice to have a collection of flag angels for the christmas tree. I plan on adding four new flag angels every month. If you would like to start collecting them and order one she is only $10 including shipping. If you order one during the month of April I will include a free birthstone angel pin. Let me know what month you would like.  Just go to my contact me page. ToVisit my etsy shop  just click here www.angelsandcrafts.etsy.com
