Thank you!!

Thank you for a very successful blog sale.  Your support of my work continues to humble and move me in ways you will never understand.  Working alone in a studio with just two cats as companions throughout the day sometimes makes me question whether I am on the right track or not.  Thank goodness for blogs, facebook and emails to allow me some human feedback besides that of my husband and the department heads at the local craft store. (Sad, but true)   Meeting some of you at Ghoultide Gathering is always such a pleasure, but I know that it is impossible for many of you to attend so tonight's blog sale was a way for me to reach out to collectors outside of the show venue.  I hope you enjoy your purchases and I thank you for your very kind words regarding my work.

I will be entering into a major house project in the next few weeks so creating will be limited during the window and door replacements, and then we move into the Christmas Tree season, but I am hopeful I will have time to create a few Christmas holiday pieces. Keep an eye out and  I will keep you posted on upcoming works!

Thank you again!
Laurie

Ghoultide Gathering and A Halloween Blog Sale

Ghoultide Gathering is this weekend, October 4th in Chelsea, Michigan.  If you are in the area and love Halloween art it is some of the finest in the country, which  I am humbled to be included as a participant.  I have been working for months sculpting and painting and hope to have created something magical for collectors to enjoy.  I hope to see you Saturday, and please grab my elbow to tell me hello if you make the journey!


 Above is a photograph of Milton Mouse and a few other characters in the works.  They are now all painted and bundled in bubble wrap to make their trek to Ghoultide.


I have a new Frankenstein figure this year that is designed more off of the Boris Karloff portrayal of the monster, and also new this year is  the "Bride." Her hair looks better in person.


Count Siegfried Overbite will also be at Ghoultide to Trick or Treat this year....something tells me he is more of a trickster so I think I need to keep a watchful eye on this character!!


Edgar will also be making an appearance on my table this year....with a raven on his wrist of course and.....


Burton Bat will also be flying in to take part in the festivities.  Burton is my first fully sculpted bat figure so I'm excited to add bats to my repertoire. 

Many other figures and lanterns and new candy containers will also be joining the group this year.


I hope to see you in Chelsea.

For those of you unable to attend Ghoultide, I will be hosting a blog sale here on Sunday, October 12th, at 8 p.m.  I will sell the works to the first collectors to email me after the sale begins on Sunday evening on a first come first serve basis. I will be posting more about the sell in the following week.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you liked what I was sharing!  Hope to see you at Ghoultide!!
