not all witches live in salem

Last year one of my swap partners sent me a little witch tag that had this quote. I've seen it in other places since then and it's always been one of my favorites.

When I get stressed I either make things or I clean. I had a fun and busy weekend but other things were on my mind and one night I found myself up until the wee hours of the morning again.

I had a few new images I wanted to play with and I thought it would be productive to catch up on my Halloween projects.

I find crumpling up paper is always a good stress reliever!

And somewhere in my pile of old books I found a very old medicinal herbal which was perfect for another spooky tag.

Are you getting your witchy hats ready? The Practical Magic party is in a few short weeks and the Gypsy Dreams party is this weekend. I'm starting to load up my gypsy wagon so I can make my way over to Celia's real soon. I can't wait to see what everyone came up with!

Oh and do any of you like The Good Witch series from The Hallmark Channel?

I loved the first two movies but I lost The Hallmark Channel last year so I never knew they made a third movie, and a fourth one comes out this Fall. It doesn't look like my cable service is picking up Hallmark again like they promised (thanks AT&T) so I need another plan. I already missed Martha Stewart's Halloween special last year and what's Halloween without Martha's annual month long spooky fest?

However, I did see the other day that Target is getting ready
to put out their Halloween goodies. Yay!!

I loved this post. The tag you received is wonderful and I will definitely use that saying. Also, the one you created with the witches skirt is just wonderful. Thanks also for the tips on upcoming shows and special on TV. Hope you are able to see them.

It looks wonderful here. I hadn't commented you on your theme yet. I love it !!! Do you make those for other people too ???
I love the Good Witch movies. I saw them all, but only because some very nice Internet friends from The States had sent them to me.
We don't have Hallmark here in Europe anymore, so I hope I can find someone who can send me the newest movie when it airs !!
My post for the Gypsy Dreams Blog Party has been published already. I have a busy weekend and didn't want to miss the party ; )
Have a magical day.

The tags are great. I love the detail in them. I'm starting to think I need to get into paper more. Have a great weekend.

Hi Anna! What a wonderful post and your artwork is amazing, as usual. I had to comment that I love the "Good Witch" series of movies and am totally frustrated that I don't have the Hallmark channel either. I wish they would put them all out on DVD! Hopefully soon...anyway..I am busy making preparations for the Practical Magic Party and am brewing up some really cool things...can't wait! Blessings to you!

I'm sorry that you have been stressed but (WOW) you have made some wonderful Halloween art. Each piece is just stunning and so artistic. You are so inspiring to me, Anna.

Your tag is just fabulous, Anna! I LOVE the way you create dresses - the texture is amazing. Guess what I got today? The Martha Stewart Halloween issue...yippee!
