Sharing some good news and time for a little FUN - How about a giveaway?!!

Hi Everyone!

Once again it has been a while since I've blogged.  I've been so busy lately preparing for shows, I barely look up anymore. When I do, I need to catch up with everyone!  I hope all is happy and well in your corner of the world.  Halloween is fast approaching and my deadlines are creeping up on me.

I wanted to tell you that I will be posting about a GIVEAWAY tomorrow on this blog.  Brenda Griffith from The Rusty Thimble is our blog host!  Come back tomorrow and see all the wonderful giveaways my friends in the Folk Art and Primitives group (FAAP on Etsy and Facebook), will be giving away!!  The Blog Hop starts tomorrow!! You won't want to miss it, as there are some really cute handmade items up for grabs.

I will be giving away my sweet Love Bite in the picture below!



Well, I wanted to also share pictures of the August issue of Art Doll Quarterly!!  Isn't the witch doll on the cover beautiful!  Love her!!

I am so excited that my Charmed Confections are featured in this magazine.  It is such a dream come true.  My first article ever, and it appears on page 6!  This magazine is so special to me ... not just because I am in it (but that does help), but that I am in it with so many of my friends.  Carly Smith, Margo Noschese, Lisa Ammerman and Debb George.  We are all part of the Witches of Giggleswick.  I absolutely love these ladies!!  It is such an honor to be alongside them in this issue!!  If you jump on Facebook look up the Witches of Giggleswick page and see all our wonderful offerings there.  That is our selling page.  Here is the link!  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Witches-Of-Giggleswick/1438375269725632


The table on contents!!  



Here are the first two pages of my article!


Below is the ad for the upcoming Halloween and Vine show I will be participating in.  It is hosted in Petaluma, CA on September 27th.  I was thrilled to see my sweet, little ghost in the bottom left hand corner.
Here is the link for more information.   www.halloweenandvine.com   Come see me!


Here is the ad for Hallowbaloo.  This wonderful show will be hosted in Seattle, Washington on September 20th.  So excited to go here too!  Here is the link --- www.thehallowbaloo.com   If you are in the area stop by and say hello!


Here is a picture a of some cute ornament cupcakes I am bringing to the shows to hang on my Halloween ornament tree.  The sweet lollies will be accessories for my ghosties and ghouls.


Here is a work in progress photo of a ghost that I will be mounting on a spiderweb plaque.  His arms are not attached in this picture ... just propped up for you to get an idea.  I think this one is going to be pretty cool when I get it done.  It still needs to be sanded and painted.  The plaque needs to be cleaned up before the final paint.


Look at who's back in town!  Some of my scaredy boys are ready to go to the shows.  They are 17" tall, jointed and hold cute pumpkin pails.  Hope you like them.


Below is sweet picture of Jake.  He was staying up late with me one night - we were burning the midnight oil together.  He always watches over me.  I think he was telling me he is ready for bed.


Well, check back here tomorrow and sign up for the Folk Art and Primitives (FAAP) giveaway!!  I am sure you are going to love what is being offered.  You won't want to miss it!

See you tomorrow with a new post!  Until then ...
