I have been going through my pre-made inventory and gradually adding items to my Amazon Shop. These are items that I had made but did not make them available to purchase online. So if you have not visited my Amazon Shop lately, it’s definitely time to start browsing again!
I have added 4 Limited Edition FRAMED Prints. Including It’s Gonna Be That Kind Of Morning (Pee Wee) in this metal rhinestone frame and 3 from my blood splatter collection. All signed by me and only 1 of each available!
I have also decided to discount the remainder of my pre-made Dead Girl Decay Accessories so that you can stock up for Halloween or prepare for the upcoming gift giving season.
And while you are there, why not pick up one of my one of a kind undead creations! Perfect for Halloween or for those of you (like myself) who like to decorate their home “spooky” all year round!
Custom orders are available but please keep in mind that the prices of custom orders will vary from what you currently see in my shop due to the inventory discount.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who helped make my booth a success this weekend. This includes my husband Frank and our friends Mike and Ellie who without them I would’ve never been able to vend. See this past week, not only did I have an allergic reaction to something (that caused me to break out in hives), but I also fell and sprained my ankle something fierce. The hives cleared up just in time for the show but the ankle will not be healed for quite some time. I don’t know what I would’ve done without them.
And I also want to thank my friends/family who came out to support me. Our friends Mike and Heather traveled up here to see the show and to support my work as well as all the hard work Frank puts into Frankenhearse (you have no idea how much work it is to wipe down a hearse in the heat for a car show). Heather’s Mom came with them and was not only dressed for the occasion but was ecstatic to meet Svengoolie. It really meant a lot to us that they came out. We were even more thrilled to hear that they had such a good time they want to come back next year.
And last but not least the AWESOME people who visited my booth. If you purchased something I am truly grateful. Not only because I missed a lot of work last week (from being covered in itchy bumps and mangled limbs), but because you liked something that I created and spent your hard earned money to support an artist. It speaks volumes. Please send photos! I would love to add you all to my website showing off what you purchased from my booth! And for those who were not able to afford something but came by to say hi and tell me you love my work, you guys rock too! Just knowing you guys dig what I am masterminding means the world to me.
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!
Stay Spooky & Supportive!
I saw this photo posted on Instagram by YuvaKala, a fellow artisan who I have purchased from in the past. It hit home with me because it holds so much truth…
Every time I get an order from my Amazon or Etsy shops I literally get giddy with excitement. Yes, the benefits of having that little bit of extra income are great, but that is not why we dance or get giddy. It’s knowing that something we created and put our time, heart and soul into was admired by someone so much, that they actually spent their hard earned money on it. We know what it’s like to struggle and want to have cool things. So if our creations are those cool things, it literally blows our minds. So the next time you debate buying something from an artist that was handcrafted or going with that thing mass produced item that everyone else has, remember that for every purchase you make with us artsy folks, someone is doing a happy dance!
And to all of my Freaky Fanatics who have purchased from me in the past and in the future, thank you for keeping me giddy and dancing! You have no idea how grateful I am to have all of you supporting what I love to do.
