What I have been working on in the studio!

Whimsical Spookies

I have been working on some new whimsical spookies for Ebay. It has been a slow process. I hurt my neck a while back and have been going to physical therapy twice a week. It has definetly helped me though. I normally am able to create more around this time of the year. But it has been a slow process lately. So look for these soon on Ebay. I will post when they are ready for purchase.

Decorating My Home with my Halloween Decorations

Well I am already decorated for Halloween this year. I just started collecting a few years ago. I always look forward to this time of the year when I can hit all the store and try to add to my collection. This year I bought some new things. So I will share so old favorites and some new ones.

This tin bucket I painted last year. I sold one and keep one for myself. I am so glad that I decided to keep one. It was just a plain black and white checked bucket that I had for years. I always thought it would look great with a different Halloween painting or Halloween saying in the white blocks. This is something that I know I will cherish for years. The doll was something I bought at T.J.Max last year. I think I paid $9.99.

The 3 bigger figures I bought at Tuesday morning this year and last year. I would really love to buy some of my friends art but sometimes they are a little out of my price range.

Take a peek at the two figures above. For an extra little touch I have added the cone party hat and the glittered crown. The party hat is from Retro Rudolphs. I bought several horns from Lori this year. I have added two to papier mache figures and one to my favorite little pumpkin doll.
The glittered crown was purchased off The Holiday Queen. I have grown to have a deep love for Melissa's art. She is such a wonderful talent. Her crowns are perfect to add to your figures.

This is the doll above. I think his new party hat looks perfect on him. It was like it was meant to be.

The tree and the orange bucket I bought last year at Hobby Lobby. This tree has brought me alot of joy this year. I made some orni's for it last year but this year I bought some glitterville orni's off of Ebay. It was a set of 13 mini ornaments. Glitterville one of my new obsessions!!! I am not sure if you can tell but I have 3 of The Holiday Queens orni's and I added her small shaker rattle as a tree topper.

This little twig tree I bought the other day at T.J.Max for $9.99. Yep that is right. I couldn't pass a deal like that one up. I really didn't need it but I knew if I brought it home I would find a place for it. When I did get it home I thought I need to add some new orni's to it. I worked on making some tiny papier mache ones. I decided that I will be listing the orni's on Ebay soon. I have had some customers in the past ask me if I would make little Halloween orni's instead of the big ones that I make all the time. I think I have a new passion. I am hooked!!

Here is what the tree looks like outside. You can get a better idea. Of course, it is way cuter in person. But I can see this filled next year with all kinds of cute orni's.

Can you see my new Kitty Kat lantern. Oh! I love it. It is perfect there. I bought the other two paper lanterns at Micheal's in the kid section for $1.49 each. Yep. Great value!

Of course my all time favorite things is my wooden orni's and my wooden tree my hubby made for me. It is perfect to display my ornaments. I will never part with it. I just wish I had some new ornaments to add to it this year. This is my third year to make my signature wooden orni's. I have been so pleased with the new ones that I have made. Maybe next year I will be able to keep some for myself.
I hope you have enjoyed a tour of my Halloween decorations. I am sure more to come as we get closer to the big holiday.
Happy Halloween and Happy Decorating!!!

The Graveyard Asylum

I have a new listing for Ebay this week. It is one of my signature papier mache Halloween Houses. I would like to present to you the

"Graveyard Asylum"

This is how the story goes:

This state asylum has been treating the mental ill for over 150 years and continues to do so to this day. This institution is mainly known for treating patients with candy addition. October is a busy month. There is such an over flow on Halloween night. Every year around this time the scary caretaker, Mr. Bone Ashford throws a Halloween Party at the Asylum. This is to distract the patients from the true meaning of Halloween night. CANDY!!! There are total of 6 patients that reside in the house at this time. Not very often do they get to have a party at the Nut House. The caretaker thought all the patients were looking a little down and thought they needed a little pick me up. A Halloween Party was just the thing that they needed. Mr. Ashford thought he would invite his two best friends over for some Halloween fun, Miss Wendy Wicked and Mr. Will B Haunting. Most of the residents in the Asylum are Wendy and Will's friends. So they are not afraid. People say you can hear the screams from far far away that night. The story goes that the locals are not sure if it is screams of joy or screams of belly aches from lack of candy.

This auction ends on Tuesday evening!
