Remains: Vending Is Hard Work!

1

So I haven’t posted much more about preparing for my 1st vending event because I have been super busy preparing for it. Ever since we have been back from our Philly vacation, every weekend has been dedicated someway, somehow to preparing for the show. With working a full time job the weekends are my best time to dedicate to all of this. I have been making new limited edition products (that will only be available at the show), up-cycling things for my display, shopping both in store and online with my mad budgeting/deal finding skills, researching helpful blogs for 1st timers and brainstorming (with mad lists) of what I need to make this all happen. I actually had to make myself take a break from it all to do my “We All Have Our Flaws Kitten” Denis O’Hare portrait. With him being added to the con with only a month to go I had to stop the presses and make it happen! Because well I love him and priorities ha ha.

So much has been made and so much is going on but I wanted to highlight some fun things worth sharing. So first of all my mother in law, Judy has been enjoying retirement with lots of flea market shopping and bless her soul that woman is always thinking of me. She has been finding so many amazing things for me to use and things are really coming together quite well

For instance.. here you will see a before and after shot of a ornate, framed coin display that she picked up for only $3.00 (and she picked me up 3 of them!! Score!). All I had to tell her was ornate frames that I could up-cycle and she was on it!  The one on the right is after my husband and I completely transformed it into a purple and black gothic display for my Dead Girl Decay Barrettes. Much more my style and matches my overall brand identity.

For some additional brand identity I made mention of dying our old ivory colored bat shower curtain purple. She had some free time and actually dyed it for me. Now it matches the look of my portfolio website! This will most likely get draped over my table.

So I had a vision of what I wanted to do for my Custom Order Forms. I wanted a tombstone display that would sit on my table. I wanted it to hold the order forms and atleast 1 pen. I also wanted it to say HERE LIES CUSTOM ORDER FORMS. So I did a search on Etsy to see if I could find someone who could make an affordable base for me. I would then of course be able to paint and decorate it myself.  That is when I found Woodloom on Etsy. I told her about my unique display idea and she was thrilled to make it for me. On top of it she was a delight to work with and also went away with one of my Dead Girl Massacre Decay Barrettes. She plans to wear it with her costume at the Haunted House she helps run during the Halloween season!

Here is the end result…….

So there you have some fun highlights of my vending preparations so far. To top it off this past weekend we let the beast out of winter storage! Frankenhearse is ALIVE and on the streets again!

Freaky Fanatics: Wilson Baby Shower

0

I am excited to be able to post another special handmade gifting post. 2 weeks of gifting my work and both for wonderful reasons.

Last week was my cousin’s bridal shower and this weekend our friends Bryan and Robyn had their baby shower. They are having a little girl who they are naming Piper (after Piper from Charmed.. how cool is that?! Very!) and well you can’t have a baby girl and not get one of my barrettes… or two.

Frank and I got them a few things off their registry and then I added these little butterfly baby barrettes into the mix.

I got a few extra photos after the shower of Daddy To Be Bryan and Auntie To Be Lisa (both long time very dear friends to Frank and I). The Wilson’s have always been a 2nd family to us. You may recognize them from some of our wedding photos as they both stood up in our wedding 🙂

Creature Feature: Etsy Massacre Team on Horror Society

0

As you all know I am a fan and supporter of horror informative websites including  Horror Society. I especially took a liking to them when they asked to feature me as an artist on their site (Missed it? See it here).

Well I contacted them and informed them about the Etsy Massacre Team that I run and they loved the concept and have done a feature on it! I am very excited about this as it will bring more exposure to the artists that make up the team. When I created the team years ago it was because I wanted to be a part of a team of artists who also made horror movie inspired items. At that time there were no such teams on Etsy. I was not about to stand back and not make it happen.. and so the Etsy Massacre Team was born!

Please take the time to go check out the feature: Etsy Massacre Team | Horror Society and share it with all your horror fanatic freaky friends! Support the arts including the dark ones!

Stay Spooky!
