Sad Little Jack

It's been a week since Jack came to life. Isn't a rotting Halloween Jack-o-lantern just the saddest site? Halloween is truly over for the year. He's the last thing to go at our house.

Although I will post occassionally from now until April, my Halloween Blog is going into temporary hibernation for awhile.
Never fear! Halloween is in my heart all year long and I will start posting to this blog regularly again in April of 2009.
Until then, please visit my main blog: where I post collage' and mixed media art all year long.
Thanks for a wonderful Halloween season. I've enjoyed creating art for you. ~Kris

Halloween Decorating at My House

My lighted case with antiques and changes seasonally!
My 6" lighted Halloween Tree with my collection of Radko ornaments.
This doesn't look very big but the opening is 10' x 3' x 2'. It's the perfect spot to hold my Dept. 56 Halloween Village.
This twin-sized Halloween quilt was designed and pieced by me.
Cool lampshade, eh? I found this at Dragonfly Design Studios
