It rather denotes a lack of courage."

Fall has Arrived

                                            Practical Magic Blog Party

Frosted Petunias is hosting their Second Annual "Practical Magic Blog Hop"
With Fall now upon us, this Hop will certainly help to get one in the spirit of the season.

Also, fall is known for the season of football.
The Sisters of the "Sisterhood of Scrap" are hosting a Football Online Crop this weekend.
A perfect way to get gear up for the season.

                       There are some things I know for certain: always throw spilt salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for luck, and fall in love whenever you can

A Little Boot

Been some time since I have posted.
Oh well, I am sure you all know how that can be.

I thought I would share a little Witches boot Template I had been working on ,while we had a visit from Irene last weekend.

I have a link at the bottom of this post if you would like to try the Witches boot for yourself.

The template is pretty much self explanatory, but here are a few tips.

I used a Cornflake Box to trace my template unto as I wanted a sturdy boot. You may use card stock, Patterned Paper or whatever your heart desires.

Using the fold lines as your guide assemble your boot template.

DO NOT GLUE!! the 2 front Boot Tabs together until after you have inserted and glued the boot insert. Then go ahead and glue the tongue template to the toe and the inside of one of the tabs on the front of the shoe.

After this step you may glue the tabs together and add the Outer Toe Template.

Now you may choose to decorate or paint your template before assembling or after it is all up to you.

Here is where you will find the 4 parts needed to create this boot.
Have fun and Thanks for stopping by :)
