This wearable piece of art is a one-of-a-kind Lucy Westenra tribute barrette. The center is a rate vintage, porcelain cameo that I hand painted to resemble Lucy and then accented it with red and black flower petals and feathers to complete a victorian style pin-up look.
As a huge fan of Bram Stoker’s Dracula I was tempted to keep this barrette and not actually put it up in my shop. But seeing how perfect it looks on Housewife of Horror I am so glad that I did. Also just knowing it is owned by someone who appreciates it as much as I do makes me very happy. The fact she has chosen to wear my handmade creations on her show for a 2nd time is an honor!
So tune in THIS Wednesday, November 13th at 7pm CST at EerieLateNight.com or follow the directions on the Housewife of Horror website to access the programming though your Roku! Don’t forget to also follow the show on social media and leave them some love on there for being so supportive of my work. Share this post while you are at it to help them get more viewers this week and every week!
As you all know I love to use my talents to help others in need. I was recently asked to take part in another Instagram Online Artist Auction. This one being a little different then the last as one item must be donated to help a feline friend in need. As a cat mom who has had to spend a lot of money trying to save her own furbabies I could definitely relate and immediately jumped on board.
So with all that said, if you are on Instagram please follow @keepithandmade I will have these 3 items in their upcoming animal themed #artist #auction starting Nov. 13th!
When the auction goes live, look for the special items with paw prints. Those are the items specifically donated by the participating artists to help raise money for kitty Peeta. Which means you can get some holiday shopping done while helping a great cause and supporting artists all at the same time! Win! Win! and Win!
I hope that everyone had a wonderful Halloween! Despite the snow we got here in Illinois we still made the most of it and I of corpse still dressed up! This year I pulled my inspiration from my love of Hotel Transylvania and went as Mavis!
I used my makeup skills to transform my face to look more like her by making sure to contour my nose and cheeks. And because I am committed to Halloween I even made my zing (aka my husband Frank) stop at 711 to get me a Slurpee so I could drink out of it all night and really be in character. I really had a blast with this costume. Here is how it turned out…
