And the Winners are....

Thank you everyone for entering my giveaway.

First name drawn is Grim, second is Minnie Kitchen.
If you will email me at  we will get addresses and you can pick your brooms.

Thank you all for being followers and I hope all have Happy Holidays.

I have gifted myself with a lazer cut Greenleaf Rosedale doll house for Christmas and will do posts on the building of it  when I get started. I am hoping a lazer cut is easier than the old type where you punch out and sand. If anyone here has put one together I would love to hear about it.

Happy Holidays

Wicked Seduction is Finished

Wicked Seduction
Wicked Seduction is finished at last. She contains 69 bottles, vintage stampings, found objects, rotting lilies, a Goya and a giant crystal. I will list it in my Etsy shop today at I finished a few new brooms and will get those up today also. The weather here has been cold and snowy, winter has defiantly set in. I can't believe Christmas is almost here and I have done no shopping. Everyone stay warm and healthy.

Wicked Seduction

Wicked Seduction ~ the start
I am finally ready to share a picture of my new cupboard. Her name is Wicked Seduction, she will be filled with wickedness and hopefully a little seduction. I have a hard time deciding when to share pictures. I started this cupboard back in September and had no idea what it would be, I only decided her name yesterday after working on it off and on for a week. I am also showing you my work space so you will see what a mess I am working in. I am afraid to clean up too much as I have many projects going on at once. I am working on a commission cupboard and working on this one clears my head a bit. I will post more pictures as I get further along. Hope everyone is staying warm, it was 2 degrees here this morning. We have about 4 inches of snow on the ground.

My work space, this mess spreads for 6 feet ~

Abandon all hope, ye who enter here
I have finally started working on Underworld, Thank you Glenda for the name. Here are a few pictures of the almost bare cupboard, I have made most of the accouterments for the top already. I am having trouble deciding what to do with the drawers, I have only done 1 other cupboard with drawers. Suggestions are welcome as always. I will post more pictures tomorrow when I have light, these pictures were taken with my daylight bulb that I work under at night here in the underworld.

I have a surprise post coming up about one of my best friends Lauri Kraft who has painted me 2 werewolf pictures for the Halloween Party Room. Stay tuned on that.

I wanted to show off some miniatures I have bought from some favorite Etsy Sellers. I apologize in advance, I can't put links with my computer with the key board broken.

The first is from my friend Kat the Hat Lady. I ordered a wonderful Mad Hatters Hat from her and was blown away by the detail and fine materials used in her hats.

The next is a Werewolf I purchased from Blue Bonnet Ladies, I don't know much about them except I love Werewolves and had to have him the minute I saw him.

Last is a perfect little Hookah from the talented Tabitha Corsica, she is a true artist who I think can make anything well.
