Charmed Confections' News and Excitement!

Hi Everyone!

Hope you are all well and happy!  I am back with some exciting news!  Guess who is going to Seattle?  Me!!

I am so very excited to be part of the Hallowbaloo Halloween Art Show hosted by Dennis Haynes and Robert Eberz.  This is their first national Halloween art show in Seattle, Washington.  I can't wait to show off my new Halloween Charmed Confections and boy, have I been busy. (One of the reasons for the lack of blogging.)

If you are in the area, mark your calendars for September 20th and come see all the fabulous Halloween art!  As a collector myself, I can't wait - as an artist showing my creations, I am thrilled beyond measure!  I will be posting more details in the coming months.  Here is the site www.thehallowbaloo.com - would love to see you there!

Here is a sneak peek at a few of my pieces that will be in the publication!
