Shrinky Dinks

Sorry for the double post, but I never remember to update any of my blogs. I've also made a bunch of Shrinky Dink magnets and keychains. I'm totally Shrinky Dink mad at the moment! I'm going to try to make some more this week.

Fairy Freedom

This is my latest creation. It's called Fairy Freedom. It took me 25 hours to finish, and it stands 12inches tall. I'm quite proud of it!

New! Victorian Filigree Brooches!

Like spiders, skulls, spooky doll faces in clocks, or maybe Charles Manson? Stop by Creepy Crafts to see all the new brooch additions!!!
Hope to see you there!

Dark Miniatures

Do you own a dollhouse?
Have it occurred to you that you can decorate it "in the dark side"?
Recent changes in my dollhouse have bring this little idea.
Here you have a witch or wizard basket with all that you need to begin to explore magic: one basket, 2 pillar candles with candle holders, 1 roll of parchment, a crystal ball and a dragon egg (ready to hatch!).
More kits will be coming, so stay tuned...
Only at Kaleidoskopic Romance.

Minis Galore at Chenille Macabre!

...No update last week. Bad Gil-Monster- cookies now go on the high shelf and I better not see me trying to get at them.
Well, here's a huge ol' mass of handmade chenille stem miniatures for you to check out over at the store! Harpies! Mummies! Spiders! Samurai! More to come as I prepare for ZombieFest 2008!
...I've now got to retag a lot of my old work for Halloween, and resume kickstarting my old cartooning career as my cat headbutts my calves repeatedly for attention. See you soon! Buy often!

Block Print

The skellington wants to have a costume party. He found this nice bear suit, and brought you a balloon. Won't you come to his party?

This is a hand stamped block print. Available here. Block printing causes each print to be individual and unique. (At least, the way I do it does.)

My 'Ghostlings'

I'm working on a (part hand illustrated/ part digitally manipulated) series, I have titled 'Ghostlings' . For obvious reasons, I am only offering these as, prints. I should probably make up my mind...quickly...whether or not I want these to be limited edition prints..since I already have the first three pieces listed.

I am planning to do, at least, three original paintings, in the same series, in time for the Fall Season.

Here are my first three prints....

'A Girl and A Ghost'

'My Visitors'

'Wingardium Leviosa'

New at Chenille Macabre: Baphomet Figure!

Keeping in line with this month's Dark Team theme of the Occult, I figured nothing screams "Occult" quite like Baphomet himself! My take on the monster.
Nothing inside but pipecleaners, he stands (on his own, quite easily) a whopping ten inches high. With six fingers on each hand and a removable pitchfork/caduceus, the Lord of Flies is very poseable!

ScrapBats fill your house with joy. Go adopt one!

Review of my recent purchase from SWStitchery.

The happy and merry ScrapBat Caesary arrived Monday morning to my house. Superfast shipping, if you bear in mind that I purchased him in the previous Wednesday's afternoon.
He came in a well protected box and beautifully wrapped in red tissue paper. I guess he wasn't so happy about it because he torn apart the paper as soon as he came out of the box. He was exactly as seen in the picture and I fell in love immediately.
Maya and I communicated a couple of times. She was very acommodating with my request for the reservation of Caesari and also informed me when the package was in the mail.
I am a happy returning customer, so you can definitely say I enjoy Maya's work!!

Pilsen Art Festival this weekend!!!

This weekend is the Pilsen Art Festival. If you're in Chicago and in the area of 18th and Wood on sat. or sun. i would love for you to stop by, I'll be in booth 4.

The art fest kicks off Friday with a silent auction at the National Museum of Mexican Fine Arts. This is totally a huge deal for me. One of my paintings is not only going to be hung, but auctioned off in a museum? what kind of crazy talk is that? ...more good news is that it's open to the public, starts at 6:30 and there's FREE dinner. If you'd like to come out, i'm sure my nerves could use the support!!

here's some more info from the website:

The first part of the Festival is the silent auction/gala which is always on a Friday evening and is hosted by the National Museum of Mexican Fine Arts. Works by all of the participating artists are auctioned at this event. The media, curators, and artists as well as the event sponsors are all invited to bid, mingle and enjoy dinner and live entertainment. (6:30 PM to 9:30 PM located at 1852 West 19th Street, Chicago, IL.)

The second part of the festival is the two day Art Fair which is on the Saturday and Sunday following the silent auction/gala. The fair is free to the public and is held at the basketball courts on the northeast side of Harrison Park on 18th and Wood.

The fair hosts all of the artists who participated in the silent auction along with a many performing artists which set the mood for the fair. Performers include bands, solo artists, dancers and poets. Community organizations and sponsors also participate in the fair and provide free information about their businesses or organizations as well as present attendees with many free giveaways. There are also food, drinks and activities for the children.


New Minis at Chenille Macabre!

...A slew of new miniatures is on the way from the most feared of pipecleaner-wielding beasts! Leading the way are the wicked Ghost Pirate, the chainsaw-wielding Psycho Killer, and the reckless Gangbanger! Give them homes, please! While they're en masse in the Chenille Macabre studios, I spend a lot of them barricaded in my closet, stomping at clawed pipecleaner hands and knives that prod beneath the door...
...By the way, I will be at ZombieFest 2008 this October 25-26 in Pittsburgh, PA, along with my good friend Justine of Bags That Bite! Meet me in person, and purchase some horrors there!

Winsome Ghost, Original Art Doll

The winsome ghost is a female spirit from the Victorian era. She's returned from the grave in her lace and finery in search of a lost love. Done with paperclay, tea stained muslin, vintage lace, an antique handkerchief and pearl trimmed ribbon over a wire armature she measures roughly 18" in length and 9" across at her outreached arms. She'll hang nicely from a fabric loop on back and will grace your home with her haunting beauty. No patterns, molds or presses were used in the creation of this winsome ghost - she's 100% handmade, original and one of a kind. Signed and dated on back.

She currently resides in my Etsy shop, Whimsyarts.

Bonfire ~ A gorgeous scent which smells like a bonfire. With notes of wood and light down of raspberry and vanilla. Adored equally by guys and gals.

Cider Web ~ Notes of fresh apple and spicy notes of cinnamon and clove. Enchanting.

Apples & Oak ~ Blend of McIntosh and Granny Smith apples, with notes of woodsy fresh oak leaves and oakmoss.

Black Cat ~ Exotic. Sensual and luxurious. Notes of Saffron, Masala Spices, Clove, Nutmeg, Pimento Berries, White Pepper, Mediterranean Broom Flower, Patchouli, Crimson Red Marechal Rose, Ethiopian Guggal Incense, Wengue Wood, Bois de Miel.

Bubblegum ~ Smells just like T or T bubblegum.

Candy Corn ~ Smells exactly like candy corn!

Caramel Apple ~ The aroma of a fresh apple dipped in warm, buttery caramel.

Dragon's Blood ~ A soft Oriental blend of Patchouli and Rose on a warm sweet musk base.

Sleepy Hollow ~ Ancient, exotic, crisp and clean, slightly oriental with just the right amount of sweetness. It's woodsy with a nice touch of myrrh. This is a very sexy fragrance! A favorite for men and women.

French Vanilla & Oak ~ Reminiscent of a classic, sophisticated Vanilla liqueur, this version is infused with undertones of rich oak. Fascinating and powerful, this strong fragrance is also beautiful. A mesmerizing and provocative scent.

Graveyard Dirt ~ Smells like freshly turned earth.

Green Apple ~ Smells like sweet green apple candy.

Love’s Spell ~ Spin a wickedly alluring spell with this fragrance. Absolutely tantalizing, composed of sweet bouquet of mandarin orange, bergamot, and tangerine enhanced by hints of fresh peaches, strawberries, and raspberries with an undertone of white musk.

UltraViolet ~ 'Limited Edition, once this fragrance is gone, it's gone' Wicked... yet Innocent. A seductive floral blend combining two romantic Victorian favorites... Wild Rose and Sweet Violet. A taste of Licorice. A hint of powder. Roll out the fainting couch and fetch the smelling salts. You must wear black, for black goes with everything.

Vampyr ~ A deep Merlot sweetened by Raspberry, Blueberry and just a hint of the darkest Blackberry.

Autumn Hearth ~ With a top note of Orange, followed by a middle note of Green Apple and winding down to peppermint and cloves.

Winter Solstice ~ A wonderful woodsy fragrance, blended with tangy fruits, pines and a warm, smoky scent. It smells like a winter's night in the country. Bonfires, bells and cheer on a still, snowy eve.

Witches Brew ~ A secret blend with notes of tobacco leaf and cinnamon, a mystical and irresistible fragrance that reminds me of everything that is Autumn!

Pumpkin Pie ~ A delicious pumpkin scent... Not too much like pie that it isn't adoringly worn as perfume.
