PFATT Blog Giveaway and Halloween and Vine

For this week only, ending March 7th, there is a chance to register and win a number of giveaway pieces on the THE PFATT BLOG by just leaving a comment to sign up!! How exciting is that?!! The drawing will be held on Sunday, March 8th, so scamper on over to register! (Yes, there is a little something from yours truly so go give the blog a look.)



You have to love those PFATT ladies for such a fun idea!!! Don't you just love a giveaway?!!

Okay, here is the next item. For those of you that have learned a little about me through this blog you know that I love all things Halloween. I read last fall about Halloween and Vine and Ghoultide Gatherings and how everything was so magical and wonderful at these two major Halloween art events. I sighed and thought, wouldn't it be just the best thing to be a part of one of those two terrific shows. So I put the names of the events on my image board to dream big, and last week I got an email from Scott Smith of Rucus Studio. Well dreaming big is a good thing and I have been invited to participate in the 2009, Halloween and Vine.

I am thrilled, giddy, humbled and a little overwhelmed by the whole thing. It is such an opportunity I can't even begin to explain or completely take in yet. I'm telling you this because I think my frequent postings may become fewer in number and I may not be showing as many works. I will need to be building an inventory for the California show and since I work so slowly the inventory building needs to begin today. I just want to take the very best that I can, so hang in there with me as I begin this exciting new journey. I will still be producing work for sale on SpookyTime Jingles and have committed to the EHAG challenges, so I promise to work as hard as I can to keep those little jingles and spooks coming to you.



Have a fantastic day and happy creating!!!
Laurie
