Have I mentioned (532 times?) that I love Halloween?  I am definitely in my happy place to be surrounded by crows, spiders (the plastic kind, thank you very much), pumpkins, skeletons and papers in green, brown, black, orange, and purple.  Good times.

I don't recall what inspired me to delve into this latest project.  Something on Pinterest, no doubt. I have never tried stamping on tiles before so dove in with a little trepidation.  I tried several different images with no success until I stumbled upon this skull island stamp.  Wah-lah!  Love this stamp and I'm really pleased with the result

 I added this Skull Island Coaster Set to my Etsy shop yesterday.  Love them!

What do you think of the red, drippy rim on that wine glass?  Pretty creeeepy, yes?  Super easy to do.  Mix light corn syrup with some red and blue food coloring - just a smidge of the blue.  Dip the rim in the mixture and set aside for about a minute.  It will seem like it's not going to work but don't be tempted (as I was...several times) to dunk again.  It will start oozing in its own good time.

Thanks for stopping by again today.  I hope you're getting to enjoy a warm, sunny summer day.
