Status on Living Dead Girl Nicole


For those looking for a status on how Living Dead Girl Nicole is doing since her surgery on Friday please visit her page for updates.

Etsy Shop Temporarily Closed


Re-posted from

Artist Living Dead Girl Nicole is temporarily unable to fill orders at this time. This bride of Frankenstein is having surgery #3 that requires more recovery time. Her shop will re-open soon allowing customers to purchase any pre-made/ready to ship items and to put down deposits to be the first on her list for custom orders that she will start once she has risen from her grave again.

Once her shop re-opens she encourages any pre-made ready to ship orders. These types of orders will be greatly appreciated as they will help with medical expenses while she is unable to work. Please do not be spooked and continue to place these types of orders. Just remember to be patient if there are any delays in shipping. Her Frankenstein will be helping her get things shipped out as quickly as possible.

Custom made to order pieces of art will not resume until she is fully recovered so please keep that in mind when contacting her with your requests or placing any orders for items that need customization or have to be made. This includes art prints as those are printed at the time they are ordered. She welcomes you to continue to send your special item requests and she will let you know approximately when she will be able to get them created and filled.

For more info about her condition, stay up to date on her recovery and/or to make a monetary donation please visit

Etsy Shop Temporarily Re-opened


I am typing this from the comfort of my couch while doped up on Norcos and recovering from my recent procedure. What was suppose to be outpatient landed me in the hospital for 5 days. I just got home yesterday.  My Etsy shop has been on vacation mode as I was not able to fulfill any orders. I have temporarily re-opened it. It will be open from now until the end of this month. It will close again in the evening of July 31st as I will be going back to the hospital to have surgery in the morning of August 1st. Items that are already made and are ready to ship are available for purchase and will be shipped out before I am down for the count. My husband will be helping me with anything I need to assure your items get out to you.

Custom/made to order creations will be put on hold until I am fully recovered from surgery. You can still order them right now but keep in mind that they take time to make and they won’t be started until I can physically make them.

For anyone that orders anything during this time I will keep you posted on the status of things so you are not left in the dark (although it is really nice here he he)!

If you have had your eye on something in my shop now would be a wonderful time to take the plunge and order it! I was caught up on medical expenses until now. They are stacking up fast and while I am down I can’t work. The orders that come through my Etsy Shop will help us out tremendously.

For those who would like to stay up to date on how I am doing, my condition or would like to help you can visit my GoFundMe page. Please share it! I would greatly appreciate it.

Stay Spooky!

GoFundMe Campaign: Update 90% of goal reached so far!



As you all know I have been keeping my GoFundMe campaign page as honest and up to date as I can. I want it to accurately reflect our goal and how far away we are from reaching it. So today I went in and totaled our medical expenses that we have left and based on the payments we have been making on our own and the donations we have received so far I am happy to say we are 90% away from our goal of having a clean medical expense slate in 2014!

Thank you again for being such amazing, caring and giving people! We are truly blessed!
