Now that I am up to date on my postings :), I wanted to share a commission that I recently finished. A buyer wanted to surprise his wife with a gift and decided on a Halloween jewelry box (I thought that was so cool of him)! I had shown him all the boxes that I had available and he really liked this one. I had always liked this one too because it was so unique how it spun around. As you can see, I went with the usual Halloween colors. I replaced the old lining in the drawers with a nice black fabric that matched. The bat and jack o'lantern knobs were handmade and the spider knobs were created from jewelry findings. The original glass was replaced with a white stained glass that I added spider webs to. I really liked how this box turned out! I was also really glad that I was able to help out with such a nice surprise!
Hey there! I wanted to blog about a few pieces that I have recently completed and noticed that I had never posted the completed photos back from the last post that I did. Sorry about that, I had posted them over on Facebook but forgot to post here. Wow, nothing like keeping you hanging for months! So this post and the next will be photos of those pieces.
Just wanted to show you some work in progress pics for the Spirits in Sanford Art Show that I have been working on. I also wanted to mention, if you didn't know already, that the Spirits in Sanford ad is in this fall's Art Doll Quarterly magazine. How cool is that! There is also a spread on one of the other artists that will be at the show, Carly Smith with Boggy Bottom Bayou.
These are 4 projects that I hope to get done in time for the show, along with a bunch of other things I am working on. There is a jewelry (or keepsake) box and 3 peg games. I will show you more pics when I get further along.
Here is a sneak peek of another game that I am also working on. It is almost finished. I still need to antique it and add the hardware.
That is all the teasers for now. I will return soon with some more pics to share!
Here is the second piece I currently have available on Etsy. Again it is another Harry Potter inspired piece ( I was in the mood so I thought I would roll with it). It is a one of a kind Platform 9 3/4 two-sided wall clock. When I found the clock it reminded me of the one in the movies at the train station. So, I thought it would be cool to paint it with that theme. I filled in one of the holes on the metal frame with wood and attached a hanging wood sign and painted them for added detail. I thought it turned out very unique and fun! I love that you can see the time from both sides!

Hey all! I'm back with a few new projects to show! The first one is a Harry Potter inspired quidditch trunk keepsake box. I had made one for a customer recently and found this box after completing his. I thought it had a great shape for a quidditch trunk and since I still had the paint and everything out, I decided to do another! I just love decorative boxes and I really like how it turned out!
The box is currently listed now on Etsy. Just click on any photo below for more information and pricing.
A self taught Halloween artist living in Kansas, I love creating functional one of a kind art designed around my favorite time of year, Halloween. The items that I enjoy working with are clocks, jewelry boxes and games. But, I am always searching for other unique ideas that I can create for others to enjoy.
