Another Blog Award!



Photobucket




I just received this awesome blog award from Heather with Witch Hollow Primitives. I feel very honored that she would give me such a cool award. Thank you so much!! She is a wonderful Halloween artist and she has recently listed some very cute Halloween paintings on eBay that have a clever story behind them. You can check them out at her blog Witch Hollow Primitives.

I would definitely like to pass this award on to 3 other blogs that share the same fun Halloweenie enthusiasm (as Heather put it). Each one truely deserves this award!

Featured Artist of the Month

I am so excited!! I have been lucky enough to be the featured artist of the month on the Halloween group HA31 website thanks to my man eating plant bouquet that I entered in the Spooky Spring / Eerie Equinox Theme Challenge. I had a blast with the challenge and it was so fun to see the awesome pieces that the other artists came up with too. I can't wait until the next one.

If you would like to check me out, please click on the picture below to go to the website. Also you can browse around and see all the other great artists in the group! It is an awesome website and is update every month. If you love Halloween then you will really enjoy this site!



I will also be posting later some goodies from some wonderful artists in the group that I also won from the challenge!! I can't wait!

Vintage Style Halloween Trinket Boxes

Here are some Halloween trinket boxes that I just listed on eBay. They are hand painted in a vintage Halloween style using orange, black and gold. I really love these boxes because not only do they open at the top, but they also have a secret opening in the middle.

I hand made the cat and the Jack O Lantern knobs out of paper clay. Then I painted them to match. The spider and the leaves are made out of polymer clay.

I relined the inside of the compartments with a black corduroy material.

The cat box measures 5 inches wide and 7 1/2 inches tall including the cat knob.

The JOL box measures 6 1/2 inches wide and 7 inches tall including the jol knob.
