I took this photo last year at my Uncle Randy’s birthday dinner. Little did we know it would be the last time we would all be together to celebrate with him. As you can see Rosie is front and center and he is smirking at her as my Aunt Mary holds up the cake as we all sang Happy Birthday to him. She always had a way to make him smile.
I share this photo with all of you because this Friday would’ve been Uncle Randy’s birthday and ironically enough we have moved into the 1st place spot for the most money raised! What a wonderfully timed milestone. This is all due to your support, shares, and donations! He would be so happy and proud of what we have accomplished so far and would be rooting for us to keep going until we reach our team goal!
If you have not donated yet please know that any amount is ok. This is not about who donates the most but about giving what you can. It all adds up and it all goes to the same wonderful cause.
If you have already donated please continue to share my fundraising link https://give.classy.org/nicatnight with your connections on social media an/or email. Your shares are what informs people what we are trying to accomplish. It’s free to share it and only takes a moment of your time. That moment could lead to wonderful things. Look what it’s done so far!
Thank you again to everyone who has helped us get to where we are right now! We could not have done it without you. My family is so grateful for all of your support.
Go TEAM ROSIE!

One lucky person who donates money will receive it along with a little goodie bag that I threw together.

As you all know I had my own GoFundMe set up a few years ago when I was going through a major health crisis. If it weren’t for the generosity of others, I don’t know how my husband and I would have gotten through things both financially and mentally. I start my post off like this because I have been there and I know how hard it is to ask for help in a time of need. Which is why I am always trying to find ways to use my art to give back. That is why when I was recently contacted by my friend Stephanie over at Morbidly Beautiful about a benefit raffle to help a fellow horror artist who was badly burned and lost everything in a fire, I immediately jumped on board.
If you are not aware, and surprisingly as it may sound, the horror community is one of the most kind and generous communities you can be a part of. That is why I was not surprised when I heard I was 1 of 70 shops who have donated their handmade creations to help raise money to “Re-Animate The Horror Corner“! Stephanie and I both decided that my Yours Cruelly Elvira/Cassandra Peterson portrait was ideal for any horror fan and a print of that piece will be going to one of the lucky winners.
If you love horror this is the raffle for you. Not only are you able to win some really unique prizes but your money will go to helping a horror artist to be less stressed while she recovers health wise and also help her to get back to creating and doing what she loves. Watch this video to see all the prizes and how you can enter!

Heads up Freaky Fanatics! With the 10 year anniversary of Sophie’s un-deserving death upon us, I have teamed up with the Sophie Lancaster Foundation and will be making limited edition Dead Girl Decay Barrettes. For each one that sells I will donate 50% of the proceeds to the foundation. A foundation I have strongly believed in and supported for many years. Stay tuned! As soon as they are available I will announce it here!

Who wants to give my husband and I the ultimate gift for our birthdays this year!? Rob Zombie is offering 200 fans the opportunity to be in the brand new Rob Zombie movie. It costs $500 per person (airfare not included) and of course we don’t have that right now. Perfect timing!
RZ is shooting a new film and is inviting just 200 of the most hard core fans to get involved. You could be playing anything from a horrible monster to a sick robot or maybe just playing your crazy self…. that is if you’ve got what it takes. Time to show us your star potential… who knows? Perhaps this is you chance to be “discovered.” The movie shoots in LA, in Feb. Grab a spot, sign up and we’ll contact you directly to get your headshot and some other crucial info to get you cast in this once in a lifetime opportunity.
A nightmare come true for the ultimate Rob Zombie fans…. who have money. I mean we are literally living in Rob Zombie memorabilia. My artist name was given to me because of my “healthy” Rob Zombie obsession.We have supported his work for years including Sheri’s clothing line. It’s a shame he can’t give a few of these away to some of the real hardcore fans that can’t afford it but have truly been supportive over the years.
Well if you are feeling generous you can donate to our tickets via PayPal by sending funds to email@example.com. Hell it’s worth a shot! Spread the word! Help get us there!
So I have been spending some of my free time these last few months as a judge for the Ax Wound Film Festival. It has been sortof a hush hush project in the works but I am excited to finally bring my followers up to date on it.
Hannah Neurotica reached out to me to be a judge a while a go and I could not have been more honored and excited. Many of you may recognize the name as I am a huge supporter of Woman In Horror Month. Well Hannah is the mastermind behind all of it!
I got to kick it in my pjs from the comfort of my home and watch horror movie shorts directed by amazingly talented woman from around the globe. Perfect gig for me! On top of it could this logo for the film festival be any cooler….
Well in support of the festival and all the awesomeness it stands for… I have also decided to become a prize sponsor. So if you plan to attend this killer event you might win something awesome from yours cruelly!
