Wow, I can't believe I have not posted anything in over a month! Shame on me!! I have a couple of pretty good excuses though. The main one is that I had family staying with me the whole month. So you know how that can be! HaHa! No, really I had a fun time but it is time to get back to work!! I have some really exciting and fun things coming up! Unfortunately I had to stop working on my Harry Potter clock in order to get some other stuff done, but as soon as I can I will get back to it and share some pics.
First of all, the eBay group AHQU (Artistic Halloween Queens Unite) has decided on a theme for the month of August. Are you ready for this....Malice in Wonderland! So, if you are on eBay you really must check us out and see what creative things are being listed all that month. I will be posting more later on when I start on mine, I have a few ideas rattling around in my brain.
Also AHQU is having an ornie swap amongst some of the artists in the group. I can't wait to see who my partner will be, I just love doing swaps! I have not really made an ornament so this should be fun! I think I might try a couple, I have been wanting to do a giveaway on my blog. I will post more information later!
Next, I am currently working on another Man Eating Plant Arrangement to sell on eBay. I had so many positive comments on the first one, I thought I would give another one a go. This time I will try and show some pics of the process.
Here is the before pic of a pot that I found. I also included the start of the ManEating Plants - rods and styrofoam balls. Wow, I really have a lot done there, huh!
Actually I am making 2 arrangements. I have been invited to a Halloween Show in Florida called "Spirits on First Street"! I am really excited! I am trying to get as many projects completed as I can. That has been another reason why I am behind on my posting. Below I have a pic of the projects that I am trying to complete now. Normally I am a one at a time project kind of gal, but yes, I am trying to do all these at once. I also have 2 more clocks and 2 games and some jewelry that I would also like to complete before the show in October! I will share more pics when they are completed. You can't really tell in the pic, but there is a grandfather clock that measures a little over 24 inches tall that I will be adding a led light up scene to, a knick knack cabinet in the back that will also have a light up scene and I am adding a clock to it too, a small box that will hold a piece of jewelry that I might go ahead and sell on eBay, the two pots for the man eating plant arrangements, and a candy dish that I have already done some clay work on.
Well, I think I have caught you up on everything for now. I will post again soon when I have more completed on the man eating plants.
