Crochet Hook Handles, Mom Blogging

I recently won 18 beautiful crochet hooks from DLY's Hooks and Yarns! Since I have some trouble with my fingers cramping up when I crochet, I have made polymer clay handles for all my favorite hooks for many years now. That sure makes it much more comfy for me to crochet! So when I received these, I decided to do the same thing to some of them. I will do the rest of them with some really pretty colored clay and beads when I get a chance to. If you look closely, you can see I added an upholstery tack to the end of the clay for some more prettiness. When these were all cooled down, I coated them with a polymer clay shellac. I should have taken another pic when they were all shiny, but I forgot. It is a very easy process to do, so if anyone is interested, just e-mail me at, gloribee56 at hotmail dot com, and I will share how to do this.

 Are you wondering where Miss Mindy is these past two days? She is just fine, and is resting up for her special debut of "Halloween Spectacular Spookys"

But because of her ADHD, ( I sometimes really believe this of her), I agreed to give y'all a little idea of what it will be about.
Here is just a very small preview of what is to come. And this ain't nothing yet! Not hardly, no way! 
Be ready to loose all your hair, your britches, and whatever else, maybe even your mind!
It will start off quite mildly, just like the pic below. But everyday, be aware that we just may blow your minds!

This will start on the 24th of October, and run through Halloween. (even on the weekend when we don't normally post!) We have both worked very hard on this and can't wait to share with all of you, just how CUTE , LOVELY, A DIVA, and LADYLIKE,(????) Miss Mindy really is! She is hoping to get a gazillion treats this Halloween! We are going to be gone now until the 24th, so you can gather up all your courage and treats to join us then! (if you dare that is!)
