A Creative Dreamer's September Creativity Challenge, "Spooky." And what's more frightening, more creepy, more haunting than FELT? Yeah, just about anything. Nevertheless, here's my response:
It's Muffin the Impaler, Vampire Cat!
Super Punch) this super charming drawing by artist/cartoonist Katie Cook.
I am hoping by giving full credit to Katie for her delightful creation, she will not mind my having transferred it, with a few modifications, to the world of felt.
I had hit the jackpot at Michaels on Friday with a 15% off your entire purchase coupon, so I bought 23 felt squares in every possible color for a grand total of $5.67. This should keep me in creatures for a very long time. I also had on hand in my [newly organized because I spent the weekend building a new closet storage unit and organizing my clay, sewing, and jewelry crafts] wheely sewing cart this perfect crazy yarn my friend Cherie gave me last year. The yarn looked so spider-webby I knew it would be a perfect toy for Muffin the Impaler.
I also had a couple driftwood hunks harvested at Point Beach this year, which combined to make Muffin's spooky perch. The completed scenario shows Muffin in a moment of contentment, having swooped down to her seat in the swamp where she can peacefully enjoy some playtime, before resuming her career of MANIACALLY FEASTING ON WHATEVER SHE CAN SINK HER FANGS INTO!
Right. Sorry about ending with a preposition, Blog. So that's what I did with "spooky," and I am now ready to kick off the Halloween season in a couple of weeks!
