Wanda's Pantry

Welcome, my pretties!! You have arrived at the August release Blog Waltz for Waltzingmouse Stamps! It has been so much fun sharing these Halloween projects with you. Two new sets, Midnight Feast and Wanda's Pantry, are now available for purchase in the WMS Store.

If you're waltzing along with us, you should have come here by way of Julia's blog. If you just happened to stop in, the fun starts with Claire on the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog. The fabulous Jennifer is up next; her blog is linked up again below.

Let me share a peek of something wild and witchy, fun and frightening! Let's take a look in Wanda's Pantry!

We have double-strength Venom - dangerous stuff! And some Irish Toad Oil to add a little zest (you can always click the pictures for a larger version).

Witch's Brew - Wanda's own putrid purple concoction - will have your victim out in no time. Fermented Innards add a certain tang, and never underestimate the powers of Vampire Blood!

A staple of every witch's pantry, Love Potion No. 9. All it takes is a drink - you won't know if it is day or night.. you'll start kissing everything in sight! Keep the lid on this one!

Just a couple of old bottles, a dab of food coloring, a few odds and ends from around the house (I bet you all think I'm a big weirdo now, huh?), and the labels from Wanda's Pantry, and you have the making of some spectacularly spooky (and easy) home decor for Halloween.

What a blast I had putting this together! My wonderful husband's role as photographer was indispensable - I couldn't have set the spooky scene without him!

As usual, Blog Waltz prizes are up for grabs for two lucky commenters! One winner will be randomly chosen from the comments left on one of the Design Team blogs, the other will be chosen from the comments left on the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog. So let us know what you think of the new release! Do you have lots of spooky ideas for Halloween? Are you ready to pull out the treats now? The contest ends at 11:59 pm EST Thursday, July 29th. Winners will be announced on the WMS Blog on Friday.

Thank you so much for visiting today - Jennifer is your next stop along the waltz. Have a great day!
