Gourdqueens Scream Award

I would like to thank Magikal Seasons for my very first Halloween Blog Award (for being a Halloween blog), how fun! You can visit her wonderful blog at: http://magikalseasons.blogspot.com/
According to Halloween Spirit I'm to pass this award on to up to 10 blogs I adore. So, without further ado, here are my choices that I feel touch the fun spirit of Halloween:
1. Tinsel and Whimsy because I love her folk-art style: http://tinsellandwhimsy.blogspot.com/
2. King of Mice Studios because Carolee's work is beyond compare: http://kingofmicestudios.blogspot.com/
3. Pumpkin Hollow because I so enjoy her darling pumpkins: http://thepumpkinhollow.blogspot.com/
4. Howling Moons because I adore all her work: http://howlingmoonsblog.blogspot.com/
5. Debra at Hop Hop Jingle Boo because I love her work and her blog: http://hophopjingleboo.blogspot.com/
There are so many more but I'm trying not to duplicate the award. To ALL the people who maintain a Halloween blog all year long, I toast you with a cup of spiced apple cider. Just over 4 months to Halloween! - Kris

Even Witches Like Summer...

Isn't she a cutie. Please feel free to save and use this fun, retro witch as you'd like. I will be taking a bit of a Summer break. I will continue to occasionally post new art but I'm going to try to enjoy a little more sun for awhile. Fall is just around the corner and I'll be in full Halloween production very soon. Happy Summer everyone!

Halloween ATCs for TRADE - New ATCs Added

Group 1. A - I (top left to bottom right) Traded: B, G,
Group 2. A - I, top left to bottom right

I am putting these 18 Halloween ATCs up for trade. If you are interested please email me at: jeffandkris92@msn.com and note which group and which letter with a description so I don't get the wrong one. It does not have to be for another Halloween ATC...it can be any theme you've got. I've found that with this Halloween blog, I end up with many ATCs and need to move a few out. Thanks! - Kris
***International trades welcome!***
