Freaky Fanatics: Ashley’s Eye of The Tiger

6

I am loving these photos that my Etsy customer Ashley sent to me! She received my Tiger’s Eye Spiritual Skullerfly Crystal Ornamental Wreath and wanted to share how she’s displaying it in her home. Can we talk about how perfect it looks next to her fun leopard print lamp?!

With her photos Ashley sent me a message saying..

“I got this today! I really love it! I love the glitter painted skull, the colors, the beads, everything!”

Thank you again Ashley for sharing. I hope it invokes lots of courage, confidence, light, and positivity into your life. So mote it be.

For those that are new here, I make these pieces of art inspired by a specific crystal or gemstone. They are made with loving intentions and before I put them up for sale I always bless them with incense and charge them by the full moon. Once the piece is sold it is forever with the one it is meant to be with and I never make one inspired by that specific crystal or gemstone again. This makes them one-of-a-kind and truly special to the person who owns them. A little bit of handmade magic!

Interested in a Spiritual Skullerfly Crystal Ornamental Wreath that is available to ship now? I have 2 pre-made ones left in my Etsy Shop (also available at a “support a small business” discounted price if purchased in person at Closet Collectibles in Crete Illinois).

If you don’t already subscribe to my updates be sure that you do (in the right side column of this page). I make all of my new creations announcements here on my blog before anywhere else. Subscribers get updates directly emailed to them (via WordPress) to keep them in the know so they can be ready to make a purchase as soon as they are announced.

Is there a specific crystal your hoping to see me make next? Drop me a comment on this post with your requests and inspire me. You might just manifest it!

As always, don’t forget to check out Ashley alongside my other happy customer photo submissions in my Freaky Fanatic slideshow! Have a photo of yourself with one of my creations? Contact me and let me know about it and you could be featured here as well!

Stay Spooky & Magical,

Spitting Image: Maybe Today Satan

0

I will start off by saying (once again) that I have never really been a fan of re-makes and re-boots. However, I will allow you to quote me as saying that the “re-boot” of Sabrina The Teenage Witch is quite the exception. Those of us who grew up on the Archie comics, the cartoon and even embraced the 90s TV sitcom got to enjoy the cutesy version of Sabrina Spellman.

Now as adults we get to bask in the sinful glory of a MUCH darker side of what it could have been like to be in Sabrina’s half-witch half-mortal shoes. So in other words, The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina on Netflix is the version I had always hoped for but never got (sorry Melissa Joan Hart but I did love you in Clarissa Explains It All!). The first time I laid eyes on The Academy of Unseen Arts I was like “Screw Hogwarts! Sign me up here!” (I even have an alumni sweatshirt cause I am a dork like that). So I guess what I am trying to say is that I really dig this show. I think a lot of it has to do with all the incredible Biblical, Pagen, Horror Movie, Archie and Riverdale references that they incorporate and cross reference on top of the story line. Some being super obvious and others as hidden Easter Eggs for fans who really “get it”.

That leads me to my latest art piece inspired by the beautifully talented Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina. I didn’t want to just draw her in her everyday look. If you know a thing or two about the show you will definitely get the play on words that I am using for the title as you take in what I have drawn. I call it “Maybe Today Satan”…

For those who have not started watching this show yet, I will not give away too much. What I will say is that this split face portrait is inspired by Sabrina’s two royalty looks as the Queen of Hell aka Sabrina Spellman – Morningstar! This piece was done in pencils and chalk pastels.

Are you a good witch or a bad witch? Either way prints and shirts of this art piece are now available in my Amazon shop for you to rock proudly as either! You can also see more of my portrait work in the Spitting Image section of my portfolio website!

Stay Spooky!
