Bad Zombie Crafter, Bad!

Sorry I haven't updated, guys! I recently started a new and totally awesome job, working with one of my most favorite crafty people ever, so I've been busy training and subsequently, being tired. My computer is still broken, too.

Anyhow, I'll be back very, very soon with the winner of the giveaway as well as some awesome Halloween craft links.

Cute Skull Hairclip Giveaway! Free stuff!!

October is my favorite month. Of course, Halloween plays a big role in this, but I just love everything about this month. I live in California, but I am not a huge fan of hot weather. Don't get me wrong, I love warm weather, but I just can't stand some of the highs during the summer around here. That's why I love October. October is when the leaves start to change colors, the evenings start falling sooner, and all these yummy foods start popping up. Pumpkin pie is one of my favorite foods of all time, and it starts making it's appearance right about now. Oh, yeah, and Halloween.
I love dressing up for Halloween, or for all of the pre-Halloween costume parties that start popping up. actually, I should say that I love playing with make-up. For years now, my costumes have consisted mainly of clothing I have thrifted or already owned, and some sort of wildly theatrical make-up or zombie makeup. Ummmm .... I'm getting sidetracked.
The whole reason I wanted to post today is that in honor of my favorite month, the lovely October, I have decided to have a giveaway. My first giveaway ever. I'm growing up so fast.
Do you remember the cell phone picture tutorial I posted on how to make bows? Well, I'm going to give away two (2) of those cute hair clips. In case you can't tell, one is vintage pink gingham and the other is black with white polka dots. Each features a cute little skull in the center.

  1. Leave a comment with your email address, Blogger ID works too. This counts as one entry.
  2. Like the The Zombie Crafter page on Facebook. Come back here, and leave a comment saying that you did it. This counts as a second entry.
  3. The deadline for entry is 11:59 PST on October 14th, 2010.
  4. One entry will be chosen at random by a random number generator as the winner and will be announced no later than October 19th, 2010.

Polymer Clay Skull Cane : Tutorial Link

Do you remember Corvis tristis? Remember that awesome tutorial for making eyeball canes? Well, she's got another really awesome cane tutorial that I highly recommend you check out. All you need to make this lovely little skully is white and black polymer clay, a toothpick and a blade, and some sort of way to roll out your clay (like a pasta machine or a glass). Be warned: caning is addictive! It's freakishly easy and the results are awesome. You can put these little bad boys on just about anything - from jewelry to candle holders to boxes to your neighbor's dog. Ok, maybe not the dog, I might be exaggerating there. But yeah, go check out that damn tutorial!
