Gipsy Dharma

Hello All,

I found a new site called Gipsy Dharma with gorgeous leather boots and Jackets. I first found them on facebook. A friend entered their giveaway. I clicked on the link and went to the website. Looked through all the products and watched the videos. 


I really like this style. I feel like I am a Gypsy Fairy at heart and this clothing calls to me :)

They have a giveaway about every two weeks. So you have a chance to win one of these lovely products. 

Check it out and see if it calls to you too!

Bloody Halloween

Happy 9th day of Halloween!
Only 21 days left until Halloween.

Have you thought of Having a Dexter or Vampire Party?
Here are some great tutorials for a bloody party.

Bloody Halloween Candles
Awesome tutorial by House of Dewberry
I have made quite a few of these. Many varieties, not just Halloween style.
Another fun craft using free products from around the house.

If you would rather have real candles 
Use a red waxed candle to melt bloody drips onto a white candle.

Just melt some White chocolate and add red food coloring
use Wilton chocolate melts
then dip 1/2 the cookie then turn the dipped side up and let the chocolate run down.
Place on waxed paper to dry.

Start collecting your jars. You can use pickle, salsa, olive or any food jars that go thru your kitchen. Also some call for plastic jars and soda bottles. I love projects that reuse items that would normally go to the dump, although I try to reuse and recycle as much as i can.

Here is a quick way to clean your jars.
Soak them in warm soapy water- at least 10 minutes. Most of the labels will come right off but sometimes you have a difficult one with extra sticky glue. For those I use dish soap and a paring (flat blade) knife. After you have removed as much of the glue as you can put dish soap directly on the glue spot and scrape it off with the side of the paring knife. I can usually remove the glue after a few scrubbing times.

Here is a link to my pinterest boards for bottles and labels
I have pinned loads of ideas and free printable labels

I had fun crafting these. I know you will too!
