Practical Magic Giveaway


Practical Magic is a favorite movie of mine! I loved it when it came out and I still enjoy watching it these days.  Made this book for the Practical Magic Blog Party today as a giveaway, what a cool blog party theme Anna and Justina!! One lucky blog visitor will receive it as a gift.  The book cover is finished with fabrics, lace, and original painting on the front and flowers and buttons. The binding on the inside is done with velvet embossed fabric, the pages are blank for you to fill.  I have put together a book kit including photos from the movie, paper and fabric scraps and other embellishments including a glass vessel for belladonna so that also a beginner can create his own book. And copies of the new Halloween alphabet seen HERE. If you interested in winning this art book, just leave a comment and the winner will bee announced on Tuesday 28.09.10.


Zauberhafte Schwestern – der Film ist einer meiner Lieblingsfilme! Mag ihn seit ich ihn damals im Kino gesehen hatte und schau ihn mir heute noch gerne an. Hab dieses Buch für die Practical Magic Blog Party heute als Geschenk gemacht. Ein glücklicher Blogbesucher kann es gewinnen. Das Buch ist wie ein Art Journal, Einband ist fertig gestaltet aus Stoffen und Spitze mit einem Originalgemälde auf dem Deckel und Blumen und Knöpfen  und hat innen leere Seiten, der innere Einband ist aus samtgeprägtem Stoff. Damit auch ein Anfänger etwas damit anfangen kann, hab ich ein Buch-Päckle zusammengestellt mit Fotos, Papier- und Stoffstücken und weiterem Zubehör einschließlich einem Glasbehälter für Belladonna. Und auch Kopien vom neuen Halloween-Alphabet HIER. Wenn Du es gewinnen willst, schreibe einen Kommentar, der Gewinner wird am Dienstag, 28.09.10 gezogen. 


Les Ensorceleuses –  j’adore ce film depuis sa sortie et j’aime toujour le voir sur DVD. Pour la Fête des Blogs des Ensorceleuses d’aujourd’hui j’ai créé cette livre comme cadeau. La couverture est terminé avec une peinture originale au front et des tissus, de la dentelle, des fleurs et des boutons. A l’intérieur la réliure est faite avec un tissus imprimé avec du velours et des pages blanches à terminer comme un art journal. J’ai aussi crée un kit en assemblant des scraps de papier et tissus, des photos du film et d’autres embellissements y inclus un petit récipient à verre pour de la belladone, donc idéal aussi pour un débutant. Y inclus également copies du nouveau Halloween abécédaire ICI. Si tu veux gagner ce livre, écrit un commentaire, le gagnant sera annoncer mardi, le 28.09.10.


* Amas veritas *

He will hear my call a mile away
He’ll whistle my favorite song
He will ride a pony backwards
He can flip pancakes in the air
He will be marvelously kind
His favorite shape will be a star
and he’ll have one green eye and one blue.

* The letter *


Dear Jilly,
Sometimes I feel there’s a hole inside of me, an emptiness that at times seems to burn. I think if you lifted my heart to your ear you would probably hear the ocean.
In the moon tonight there’s a circle around it. A sign of trouble not far behind.
I have this dream of being whole. I’m not going to sleep each night wanting, but still the wind is warm, the cricket sing.
I dream of a love that even time will lie down and be still for. I just want someone to love me. I want to be seen, I don’t know. Maybe I’ve had my happiness. I don’t want to believe it, but there is no man Jilly, only the moon.
Love, Sally

Keep rosemary by your garden gate
Plant lavender for luck
Fall in love whenever you can.
