Three Little WIPs

Halloween, in my book, is just around the corner. Can you believe it's already almost August!? That's just a hop, skip, and a jump from October. I know I always jump the gun, but every July, I start getting excited about the holidays.

I whipped these little fellows up for STJ's August update. As you can see from left to right, we have a skull, a black cat, and a moon man. I plan to give each of them a body soon. Only 13 more days till the next Spookytime Jingles update, stay tuned!!

Two Down, One to Go

Sometimes I like to make small Christmas items in sets of three, including a snowman, an elf, and a Santa.

Here we have the "Elfen" brother of the snowman art card I made a few days ago. Now I just need to complete the series with the old jolly fellow himself!

Find me on Etsy!

The DVD release of "Coraline" was today, and I am a happy camper. I went to the store this morning and picked up my copy. Plus, I think it's going to rain tonight, and we all know there's no better movie viewing weather than rain, right?

Hopefully "Coraline" will pick up an Oscar for best animated picture. Henry Selick is an animation mastermind!

Oh and check out this cool picture of Steph and me. I made it at

Frosty ACEO on Etsy!

Well, here's what I accomplished today. I was trying to organize and clean up my work desk, and I came across some supplies that inspired me to do this card. It includes some aged chenille stems, an old luggage tag, and a piece of sheet music from an old book. When I saw these things, they all called out "Snowman!" so I whipped up a mini Frosty, and put them all together.

I'll probably make a Santa and an Elf card to match, so stay tuned!

I've been working my fingers to the bone, but unfortunately don't have a lot to show for it. I Started this morning and worked steady all day, and only got this far.
I have this little donkey, which inspired me to do this piece. Hopefully by the time I'm done, the animal that Santa is riding will look more like a donkey lol!

I do have some other pieces on the table, and some more that are completed and ready for STJ.
