September- Better Breakfast Month

Hello everyone :)   I am pretty much caught up!!!  The September monthly mailings will be sent out within the next couple of days.  I will have the monthly contest theme and info at the bottom of the blog.  September is National Chicken month, and better breakfast month.

I decided on   Anti-better breakfast :)  Fro me this means pop tarts.  I have two of the three monthly pop tarts complete.  When the third is finished I will edit this post and include the new pictures.

My poor camera died, so the new pictures wont be as pretty.  I will try to replace my camera as soon as possible :)

Contest Info:
New Theme:   Halloween!!!!  Get out your ghoulish food ideas, and leave them here in the comment section.  If I make your suggestion for the shop, you win a free charm (the one you suggested).
I just ask you to limit your suggestions to one a day, and make sure you aren't replicating prior suggestions.
So far Rachel has suggested Candy in a skeleton bowl, and candy apples from a prior post. Katherine suggests Halloween suckers.  Jamie suggested carmel apples, mellocream pumpkins, eye ball gum, and sixlets.  Joyce suggested popcorn balls, and cupcakes for the Halloween theme. choc bottom, orange frosting and those licorice sprinkles that are black, orange, purple and yellow, and cupcakes .  Noell has suggested Frankenstien Cakes, Cinderella pumpkins, and sugar cookies with ghosts and spooky stuff.  During candy month someone suggested candy corn, so I will take that as a suggestion for this month. 

P.S.  If you have trouble leaving comments, shoot me a convo on Etsy, and I will edit the blog to include your ideas just like what you see above.  I will also make sure to add them to new posts if I create a new blog befroe we stop taking Halloween ideas. (Sept 15)....

As I create my pieces, they are entering the Etsy shop, so taking a peak will show you the new porducts before I post them here ;)

For the time being I pulled the charm of the month club out of my shops on Etsy and Artfire.  I am planning on bringing it back, but due to baby sitting... I just haven't been able to complete them before the first of the month for the past 3 months.   For those of you in the club you will still be receiving your monthly charms until your membership expires.   I hope to make the club available again to you by January 1st.

I will still be making new charms monthly and continuing this contest I just didn't want to disappoint anyone with things taking longer to go out.    So if your membership expires before I bring back the club , I will give you the discounted price each month on the new monthly charms.

I will be making my next monthly charity payment soon, and will leave you the amount we have raised so far here once I make it:)  Here is the link to the business donations made so far.
