Freaky Fanatics: Amber’s College Dorm


My niece Amber left for college yesterday (feeling old). My sister in law Melissa sent me this photo that she took in her dorm as they were moving her in and setting everything up.

This is the framed photo collage I made her this year for her birthday. I used photos of me and her from my Halloween wedding (back in 2009) along with some of the leaves that were actually used as part of our wedding decor and glittered it all up. Next to it is the Michael Meyers figure I got her a few years back at a horror con.


This made my day. Now when she is far from home she has Aunt Nicole and Michael Meyers there watching over her 😉

Stay Spooky!

Reflections – Howl and Decayed Fae


Two new photos I captured recently…

I call this one “Howl”. You would actually be surprised that I did very little editing to this one. That is literally how amazing the sky looked and how awesome the camera captured it.

I call this one “Decayed Fae” and I did use some editing skills on this one to give it a darker feel.

It’s great when you have inspiration right outside your doorstep. I took “Howl” on my front porch and I took “Decayed Fae” on my back porch! Art is all around us. You just have to be open to it.

Stay Spooky and Inspired!

Prom = makeup, photography and photo editing fun for me. A night to remember for my niece!


With my beautiful niece Amber before her prom

A couple of weekends ago my niece Amber went to her high school prom (she leaves for college this year and I feel so old ha ha).  Prom has always had a creative effect on me. There was always just something about it that was magical and exciting. When I was in high school I was on the committees that planned our dances. We use to come up with the theme, the decorations, the colors the favors etc. Now a days it allows me to get out my makeup brushes and take photos of my beautiful niece. Here are the photos of her before her big dance that I took after helping her with her makeup. I did all the fun photo editing on them as well.

Reflections – New photo art for Axe Man’s Bridge


Here is some new photo art I did from some of the photos I have taken of Axe Man’s Bridge. I thought I would play around with them and make them so they match their Facebook and Reverbnation pages.

Stay Spooky and Keep Rockin’
