A BeWitching Extreme Makeover And A Chance To Win

During a recent trip to one of my favorite thrift shops I found this

little beauty. She cost $12.00.

She's not really my style though...

Makeover time!

I started with a nose job, then a chin job.

Then she got a whole new face job. Complete with wrinkles and hag lines.

I used polymer clay. Her head comes off, creepy, I know. But it worked well for

baking her new face in the oven. Her golden curls didn't melt, but it wouldn't have mattered if they did...

I painted her new face with craft paint. I had her much more haggish at first, but my girls weren't going for it, so she got another mini makeover.

New clothes... new hair... new blingy jewelry...


Meet our little witchy.

The hat came from the dollar bins at Target.

Her long locks are an old Halloween wig.

I sewed her a chic new ensemble.

This fun glam spider came from a thrift shop.

Her shoes are adorned with rhinestone earrings.

More rhinestone jewelry. There is no such thing

as too much of that!

So here is where YOU come in!!

She needs a name. We are a little stumped.

So if you'd like a chance to win 1 dozen of these Halloween cuties, made by yours truly,

leave a comment with a name suggestion.

The judges will be my very own enchantresses, ages 9 and 5.

They will choose a name on Monday October 18th!

Good luck, enter as many names as you'd like!

Mahidabal {pronounced ma-hid-a-bull}. Definitely a witch name.
