today blogs from all over are going to be having a post concerning the great movie (and book...I have it now, can't wait to read it) PRACTICAL MAGIC!!!
Hello all you Shiny, Happy People!!
OK...I do NOT know how to do this--> (can anyone help?) This post will remain at the top of my blog until Saturday October 2nd (after my drawing) Please scroll down for anything new new
Hello all you Shiny, Happy People!!
** if you are one of my followers or happened upon my post today, not knowing about this blog hop, click the image above to take you to the main blog, and the list of participants. **
I thought and thought, and thought some more, on how best to post about this movie, in the time constraints I had (I signed up kind of late) I decided to make my post a bit interactive, fun and give stuff away!
I have three prizes to share with you
#1...is for someone who loves the movie, and appreciates home made items, but does NOT do any art themselves.
#2...is for someone who does dabble in art, specifically paper arts.
#3...is for someone who does dabble in paper art, and is also Wiccan
We will revisit the prizes later on.
The Interactive part is in the form of some games:
a few trivia questions, a small word search, and some multiple choice questions. ALL based upon the Movie PRACTICAL MAGIC!
You will have until this coming
Friday 10/1 at Midnight EST
To email me your answers, YOU MUST
include whether you "are a fan, but not a crafter",
"a fan, and a crafter" OR "a fan, crafter and Wiccan".
That way your name will go into the right WITCHES HAT
for drawing. THE email to use FOR THIS is: Sweetnightfairy@yahoo.com
Ok, first I KNOW you want to know about the prizes!!
The prize for a fan, but NOT a crafter or a Wiccan is a CHUNKY ATC made by Moi, in the theme of The movie PRACTICAL MAGIC. first if you do not know, an ATC is an ARTIST TRADING CARD, these are miniature works of art; 2.5" X 3.5"...NOW the chunky part is that it is made out of a cut 2" X 4" cut to 3.5" and instead of only having art on the front, it is art on all 4 sides and the top. My info will be on the bottom. I can NOT show you a picture of it right now, as it is not made, HA! But I have gathered a few pictures of Chunky ATCs(not made by me) to show you: The Below Chunky ATCs are made by LGirbino @ ARTHOUSE
The Prize for a Fan who is also a crafter, will be a selection of 3 collage sheets chosen ESPECIALLY for this blog party, meaning they are magical, Witchy or new age in theme.
There will probably also be some extra goodies.
The prize for the Fan that crafts and is Wiccan is something chosen especially for your Book of Shadows. I'm sure I'll be throwing in some other goodies.
Any questions? please put them in the comments section, and I will answer you.
EDIT to add: you are allowed to get 1 wrong in each of the 3 parts to be put into the drawing.

I LOVE the House in this Movie, although now at my age, and with my knees and back issues the stairs, not so much. However, I simply LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the kitchen especially, including the conservatory/distillery. here are some views, for your enjoyment.
Please come back and visit my blog, and get to know me a bit. I have recently passed 100 followers, and 5,000 visits (but of course that count me also, LOL) so coming soon I will be doing a large blog candy (geared toward crafters)
