Happy Holidays to my Freaky Fanatics! I have a treat for you. It is literally the Nightmare Before Christmas in my Amazon Shop today. I just added 3 new pre-made, ready to ship barrettes that are a must for any Tim Burton fan.
What better time then now to add these new Nightmare Before Christmas creations to my Dead Girl Decay line! These all measure approx. 4″ x 4″ and are available in my Etsy Shop. These are all pre-made and ready to ship.
Well Freaky Fanatics I finished another portrait based off of my love of movies. Or more less my all time favorite fairy tale villain…. Maleficent. She has been my favorite fairy tale villain since I was a kid. Although my love of Kristin Bauer as Maleficent in Once Upon A Time is well known. Or my love of Kristin Bauer in general is well known…. I decided that since I already drew her as Pam and I have always wanted to show my appreciation for Angelina Jolie I would go a different route with my favorite villain portrait. I have always admired Angelina Jolie not only for her acting but for standing out as a unique individual. There is something I also share deeply with Angelina and that is loosing our mother’s to cancer and the void that we both feel. Her decision to get a masectomy is a very familiar thing to me. Not because I have had one but I have been asked by my doctors to decide if I should ever want to get tested to see if I carry the breast cancer gene. If so a masectomy would be the end result for me as well. I have chosen to not children and at this point have not made a definite decision if I will ever get tested, however I highly respect and look up to Angelina for her decision to do so for her children.
The past few weeks I have been a busy Aunt making gifts for my niece Kayla’s baby shower. She is doing her baby’s nursery in Disney’s The Aristocats with emphasis of the character Marie (because she is having a baby girl).
Today was her shower and I was very happy to see the smile on her face when she opened up her gifts.
With the help of my husband Frank we were able to make her a wooden wall hanging of Marie. I drew it on wood, my husband cut it out with a saw and sanded it. I then painted it and sprayed it with a protective gloss.
I also made her a set of my “Mummy and Me” matching Mother and Daughter Hair Barrettes. I picked the colors out based on what I thought Kayla would like and then when I saw the beautiful dress she was wearing for the shower I knew I did well. I couldn’t believe how much they matched what she actually wore to the shower.
And last but not least a photo of Great Aunt Nicole with the beautiful Mommy to be….
