I Was One of the Lucky Winners...

of a wonderful giveaway that the Ebay Group PFATT had done earlier this month on their blog. 

I was very surprised and delighted to find out that I was the winner of this adorable lil Snow Folk created by the very talented Kaf Grimm with Olde Cape Primitives!  Kaf does such wonderful work!  As you can see this Snow Folk is just the cutest!  My daughter went nuts when she saw her and made sure that she was hung right on the very middle of the tree so she can be noticed by everybody that comes over! 

Thank You So Much Kaf!  She will be treasured for years to come!!

Creepy Updates for November!

Oh my, I just noticed that it has been over a month since I last posted.  Shame on me!!  I wanted to share some new Halloween ornaments that I recently have gotten from some very talented artists.  The first pic is part of my new Halloween tree that I had purchased this year.  I had been looking for a black one for awhile and this one seemed perfect when I saw it.  I found it at Kohl's in the Christmas section for only $20.00.  I had to remove the lights though, they were just white ones and looked like they were just slopped on the tree.  I replaced them with more neatly arranged orange ones, of course.  It stands 4 ft. tall so it's the perfect size for a table!

The first ornie that I would like to share was made by a Halloween Queen, Shirley with Skellyton Art!  It is a very cool witch skelly!  I just love the expression on it's face!!


The next one is a cute lil Scarecrow that was created by another great artist and Halloween Queen Wanda with Cypress Hollow Primitives.  I saw this one and knew I had to have it too!


I had also did a Tombstone Trade awhile back in Sept. hosted by Dani with Ambitions Design and I had the most amazing partner Kim with Kim Hardt Originals.  She made this wonderful tomstone that I just thought was fabulous and had to add it to my tree!


They all go great with the awesome ornaments that I have posted about already that were created by The Gourdqueen, HoHoHalloween, Peach Street, and Marie Patterson Studio

Now for what I have been up to.  I have currently been working on another Halloween game and a couple commissioned pieces that I hope to have done soon.  I have also been working on a couple of miniature pieces that I can't wait to get completed so I can show you!  I finally have started on my Harry Potter roombox that I hope to have some pics of soon too!  Can't wait for the movie by the way!!  I have not forgotten about the witch room, it is still on my work table.  It was shoved back because I was not happy with how the fireplace was coming along.  I will be getting back to that one too, I promise!  

I am a little late showing my update for the Halloween Queen's BOOtique this month.  I decided to do a Fall Harvest Trinket Box.  You can see more information on it here!



So stay tuned there will be more pics to come!!

Checkers Anyone?

I finally have my Halloween Checkerboard listed on Ebay! 

Jack O'Lanterns VS. Skulls! 


Board measures 16 x16 and around 4 inches high.  As I mentioned before I added wood balls for feet and covered with paper clay Jack O'Lanterns.  Clay vines and leaves wrap around the entire box. 


I added 2 knobs on the drawer and painted them opposite colors of orange and green for each player.  The pieces can be stored safely inside and also come with small cloth bags.  On the back side of the checker pieces are hand painted crowns so they can be used for Kings!


I really had a fun time with this project!  If you would like to check out the auction click HERE!
Thank you for looking!!

My Husband's Spooky Tree Bottle

Wanted to share with you a very cool project that my husband, Darren, has been working on for some time now and recently finished. 

It's a spooky tree that he hand sculpted out of paper clay over a glass bottle.  He even sculpted an owl on top of a cork that fits right in the bottle to look like the owl is perched in the tree!  I thought it came out wonderfully creepy!  I always enjoy it when he is able to sit down with me and do art!  I think he does awesome work!!




It is listed now on Etsy if you would like to go check it out.  Just click on my Etsy listings in the sidebar!

"Wicked" Witch Boot!

Wanted to share with you a really cool Halloween decoration that my sister made!  It is a vintage style witch boot made out of paper mache! 

Tiffany with All Things Crafty had recently done a Halloween swap with another artist and made one of these awesome witch boots!  Well, it ended up being a big hit and we have been begging her to make more ever since!  She was finally able to complete a couple to sell and has this one available now on ebay for only a 5 day listing!  I just love how this one turned out!!  I think the style of boot she did is just fantastic!  You can view the Ebay listing here.  I am excited to see what else she comes up with!!

Creepy Updates for September!

Hey all!  Thought I would post on a few things that are happening!

First of all the Halloween Queens just updated the BOOtique September 1st!  If you have not stopped by yet, you really need to go over and check out all the fabulous new items that are available for purchase!  Here is what I offered  and I am very excited to say that it has already sold!

It's an Owl Picture Frame Ornie!  I hand sculpted and carved it out of paper clay and added a little frame for a body then made the feet and branch from paper clay. 

Also the Hallowee Queens are having a Skeleton theme month on Ebay for September!  If you click on the banner on the right it should take you right to the AHQU Ebay listings.

Next, the Halloween Artist website has just been revamped and has some very exciting new things on it!  There is now a Collector's Corner by Robert Brawley and an Ask the Artist section by Brenda Labell.  There is even a Magical Market Place where Halloween Artists can list pieces that they have available for sale.  I have a Vintage Style Cat Ornie available there now!


I have also finally added some items for sale in my Etsy shop, if you have not noticed.  I opened the shop ages ago and am just now trying it out!  I really like it!  There is so much great stuff on Etsy!!

Finally, I wanted to share a sneak peak of a Halloween checkerboard that I have been working on for some time now and I finally almost have it complete!  I added some wood balls to the board  for feet and covered them with paper clay pumpkins. All I need to do now is paint the checker pieces and it will be ready for Halloween!  Here are a few wip pics:


Thank you so much for stopping by!  Check back later and I will have the finished pic of the checkerboard and more fun pieces to share!!

Creepy Family Portrait!

Meet the new members of the Man Eating Plant family!  Aren't they precious?!  It was almost impossible to get them all to pose at once, but I was able to snap a quick pic before they all ran off to terrorize the neighborhood!haha

A few have already sold!  If you would also like to adopt one of these little fellas just contact me for availability and pricing.  They would go perfect on a table, displayed with other plants, or even in your Halloween decorations!

Halloween Queens BOOtique August Update!

Hi again, hope everyone is well!  Just wanted to let you all know that the Halloween Queens BOOtique has been updated for the month of August and there are some really awesome Halloween goodies available there!  Here is the piece that I am offering this month.

Yes, another one of my decorative Jack O'Lantern trinket boxes!  This one is a little bigger than the last one I did.  It measures 7.5 inches tall and 7 inches wide.  I hand sculpted, out of paper clay, the Jack O'Lantern on top and also added 4 small ones around the bottom part of the box.  I thought this one turned out really cool looking, I really like the black and orange checker pattern! 


This will probably be the last trinket box that I will be doing for a little while.  I have some other projects that I am going to be working on.  I really need to get back to my Miniature Witch Shadow Box and I have also started a really fun Halloween Checker Game that I can't wait to get done!! 

Thanks for looking!!  I'll be back later to post some more Creepy Creations!
