Creepy Clay Giveaway

It's almost October so I thought I would have a creepy, scary giveaway! Well, maybe not so scary, but fun at least.

The object of this giveaway is easy. Just leave a comment and tell me your favorite scary movie.

On October 7th I will randomly pick a winner from all of the comments and mail you the creepy clay doll.

The only disclaimer I have is you have to live in the continental United States due to shipping.

This is an original one of a kind doll made
from polymer clay, wire, fur and beads.

New Blog I'm working on

Although I'm still doing clay and will be promoting a giveaway soon, I've also started a FREE poster blog. The posters are 8.5 by 11 so you can print them out yourself.

They are high resolution, just download and print.

If you are looking for a little inspiration, motivation, goal posters, affirmations or quotes, I'll be designing those types of posters and offering them for free.

Free Poster Blog

I still have my regular poster website, where I design and sell 11 by 17 posters. Check out my sites and follow my blog. You might find something you've been looking for.

I also will do custom orders and designs, so contact me if you need anything.

I'll be back tomorrow with a Halloween giveaway!

Shadow boxes and Halloween Potions

A few weeks ago my friend, Mary Ann and I had a little art weekend. We each made a Halloween Shadow box. We found these two boxes at a resale shop.

My shadow box is to the left and Mary Ann's is to the right.

I saw the idea to make a Halloween shadow box in a magazine and loved the idea. So for the past few months the two of us have been gathering Halloween items from around our homes.

I made clay pumpkins and grave markers and Mary Ann found some skeletons and skulls at the dollar store. We began by painting the interior of our boxes and once they were dry, we began gluing our "spooky finds" to the shelves. Mary Ann's method of designing her shadow box was much more organized than mine. She sketched out her idea beforehand. I just jumped right in and started building the idea. In the end, I think we each designed some wonderfully scary shadow boxes.

I especially love the blue theme of her project.

This is my shadow box. It is not finished yet and I've added a few more details. This gives you a pretty good idea though. When it is complete, I will post pictures. I thought it might inspire you to make your own.

I also thought it would be fun to make labels for jars and bottles. Feel free to print out these labels below. Reduce them if you need them smaller. If you are having a party, you can cut these out and attach to beverage bottles. Glue them to your kid's snacks in their lunch box. There are lots of ideas and I plan on making more and posting them here.

Have fun!
