September Blog Waltz Review and Winners Announced.

ED - To see the stamps we just released yesterday scroll down or click here

The whole Waltzingmouse Stamps team were so impressed and amazed with the creative projects of those who participated in the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz this past Saturday.  We are please to share some of those great projects with you.

Cathy Weber really did a fabulous job of creating a fantastic Halloween scene, as well as a great card.  She used Join Us, Halloween Party, and You’re Lovely to make all of these great project.
Pauline’s project shows just one of many ways to use Cicely at Halloween. With some creative paper piecing she fashioned a flowing scarf and bat with wings that extend beyond the circle.
Jeanne J fashioned two creative treat bags using the circle images from Cicely at Halloween and Gracie at Halloween.  From those same two sets she created tags and sentiment ribbon banners.

All the projects were awesome, and as promised, we selected one random winner from all those who participated in the Waltz.  That lucky winner is: SAM.  Congratulations Sam…please e-mail Claire at with your mailing address and you set of choice and she will be on its way to you.
Last, but not lease, we also selected one commenter who posted their answer to the following question:  What was your favorite Halloween costume. Was it something you made, bought, or rented? Was it for you or for one of your children?
The winning comment came from Elbeth who said:
In Sweden we don't really celebrate Halloween. That is no reason for me not to celebrate Halloween myself! As a Swede, I've not grown up with the Tricks and Treating (but we do something similar when all the witches have to fly away just before Easter!)...
I remember that Haunted Houses at theme parks always attracted me as a child. At one time I even built one, in a room in our basement! It wasn't great, I was around 8, but I was very proud anyway.
All my Halloween parties (as a grown up) have been rather elaborate ones. Once I rented the school I work at and had a proper Hogwarts party - including lessons in alchemy (I'm a chemistry teacher, I promise it was all safe!) and magical biology.
The best costume I had was for another party though. I was Drusilla, the crazy vampire from Buffy. I and a friend ordered half masks from the US, tons of proper theater makeup and we looked totally right. :D
Thanks for commenting Elbeth.  Please follow the same directions above to acquire your free stamp set.
And a BIG thank you to everyone who participated and commented.  YOU are what makes these Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz events so much fun and so inspiring.
