10 years ago today...

10 years ago today I was on HGTV 
demonstrating two Halloween projects. 
The video footage of the episode seems to have disappeared 
but here is a description 
of the "Crafters Coast to Coast" episode:
 Creating Halloween decorations with Bobbleheads. 
Also: cloth zombie dolls; 
tombstones made from plastic floral foam;
 a whimsical pumpkin pillow


video stills from the 2004 episode.

Ghoultide Goodies

A few small Ghoultide Goodies 
have just been added to my Etsy shop!
(Actually, most of these were 
just completed this past week)




I LOVE this little "fraidy bat
with the Peacock feather print wings!

Home again, Home again, Jiggity Jig


Arrived home late tonight from Michigan 
feeling a bit "done in"
& [gasp] my studio still looks like a crime scene! 
A HUGE Thank You to all 
that stopped by my booth at Ghoultide Gathering:
 lovely customers & lovely artists alike! 
I promise to post photos & reveal all soon;
 but for now, I plan to sleep like the dead;)RIP

Woodland Halloween


"Woodland Halloween"
mixed media acrylic painting
12"x24"

Wow, Ghoultide Gathering is 
just under 2 weeks away!

I've had a lovely Halloween filled summer 
getting ready for this event; 
but it has been brought to my attention 
that not all are as fond of Halloween as I am?! 
So here is a gentle woodland Halloween painting 
that might get a few of you to change 
your mind about my favorite holiday;)
