So now that the surprise is over I can finally share another art project I have been working on. This is a handmade bookmark I contributed to the group gift for my dear friends Heather’s 40th Birthday….
Heather loves to read and she was totally bummed about having to cancel her milestone Birthday party (due to COVID), so her husband Mike reached our to her friends and family asking if we would each make her a special bookmark.
Since she is the Daria Morgendorffer to my Jane Lane I knew right away where I was headed theme wise. Especially since one of the things Heather and Daria have in common is their love of books and reading. Plus who better than her Jane to paint it!
My husband Frank took me to the hobby store to find the right wood. He cut it out and sanded it. I painted, clear coated and added the tassel. Mike collected them all and presented them all to her in a book he made with special pages made for each of them. We may not have been able to physically celebrate with her this year but Mike found a fun and creative way to make it happen! Major hubby points for sure and this was so much fun to make and be a part of!

Stay Spooky & Magical,
I finished up a commission piece over the weekend. This was for a return client who wanted me to make them another mini zombie head prop. But this time they wanted an undead pirate for a decorative ghost pirate ship they are putting together. So if you’re wondering why all of the rum and brains are gone.. it’s probably because of the Captain of the Undead here…
When you do a commission piece and you send photos of the finished creation to the client there is always that nervousness of wither you captured what they had envisioned. So I was very happy when I got a response that said…”I knew it would be awesome whatever you came up with but this is so much better than I imagined. So cool. Thank you so much.”

I took my love of Jim Henson creatures (hence the cute monster faces) and mixed it with my love of the macabre (coffin boxes) and created… the MOFFINS!
They are 6″ coffin boxes made into monsters and come in different colors! Right now the ones in the photo (green, orange, purple and blue) are pre-made/ready to ship to the first person who buys them. I am also taking custom orders where you can specify the color of the monster’s skin, eyes, fur and how many teeth!
Here is a photo of the inside of the boxes…
Buy them now in my Etsy shop!
