Halloween Stake-Out

Fall is trying to make its entrance and it’s been getting spooky in the studio. I reviewed the pieces I have on hand from last year, and was inspired to make more. With my plant stakes having such a positive response I decided to try a batty design as well. I pulled a generic bat […]

Skeleton Time

When I had my Platt-A-Palooza pop-up, Halloween was already in full swing at the store, and I love decorations they have available. It’s kind of fun to hang out “in death” like this, don’t you think? I’ll be putting on the Corpse Bride and Nightmare Before Christmas this weekend. I also put a harvest vignette on […]

Witchy Studio

I meant to get my travel blog started but I had too much fun in the studio. Halloween is coming, and I picked up some napkins in Germany to expand the collection from last year. So I set about wrapping wire based on the designs. I used the Now That’s A Jig! Big rounds to […]

Golden Radiance

Tomorrow is Halloween, but this year I am more in Samhain mode. I don’t know of any costume parties to go to, though the coming weekend is packed. So here are some photos of the glorious Fall colors we’re having this month. I love the brilliance of the golds and reds. The ‘stoplight’ trees are […]

NEW’s Halloween bash

Halloweeny pendants at Aurora Rose

Since owner Kim Peters loves Halloween I got inspired by my stamps… … and made a few spooky wax and wire pendants: Spiderweb, Bat House, and Triple Pumpkins. Princess Zoologist and Helix in the Round (a tribute to Rosalind Franklin) wax and wire […]

All Hallow’s Eve

Happy Halloween! My neighborhood has been getting spooky, creepy and harvesty over the past few weeks. I don’t have a yard to decorate but always delight in seeing the lengths others go through for this holiday. Step up on these ratty stairs: Are you interested in trick or treating here? Looks like a ‘warm’ welcome […]

Trick or Treat, or both?

I must say I don’t wait for Halloween to treat myself. I’ll accept or acquire a piece of chocolate year-round! It seems this week I’m navigating some trickiness though, with all the books I’m reading from the library. Preparing for the business end of a crafty venture with all its caveats can be creepy. Knowing […]
