Creative Spirit Challenge--October!



Hi Everyone!
Welcome to my Creative Spirit Challenge!
This Halloween spool is my own entry for this challenge. If you would like to see a complete tutorial to make one for yourself, just go to: The Inspirational Gallery at Shabby Cottage Studio. http://inspiration-gallery.blogspot.com/p/tutorials_25.html You probably remember Shabby Cottage Studio from the tutorial on creating crinkly seam binding. Oh, and would you mind signing up to be a "follower" on there?
(This completed spool is also available in my Etsy shop.)



At the end of my challenge on the 15th, one person’s name (who enters the challenge) will be chosen in a drawing to become Miss Creative Spirit for October, be able to post the Miss Creative Spirit Button on her blog (and brag about it) AND win this altered purse that I made. (Remember, you don’t have to make anything new to enter the challenge...you can link up an earlier post. All I ask is that you post the Creative Spirit blog button seen above on your posting so people know how to get here if they would like to enter too.



You can add your link after midnight on Oct. 8th!
