Pleased to announce!

That's right folks, BIG NEWS!!!   I am one of the artist selected to show at the Spirits in Sanford Halloween show this year!  Yay!  I am SOOOOOOO excited about this event.  I can't wait!!!  What a refreshing change of pace this will be to my usual shows with The Pixie Knoll art work.   

You can see all about the show and get updates on their Face Book page here    Be sure to stop by and like their page if you haven't done so already!  If you are a local collector, don't forget to mark your calendars for that weekend as you don't want to miss out on all the spectacular and boo-tiful Halloween gore and galore!  There are only a few well-known Halloween art shows across the U.S. and this is one of them.  Look for announcements in Art Doll Quarterly magazine and other well-known publications.  If you are a Halloween fanatic, then this show is for you! 

Speaking of shows, I thought I would mention one more time that the shop for Every Witch Way Lane is now OPEN!  So, if you haven't had the chance to stop by and check out the wonderful, bewitching goodies for this months store opening, you should hurry and stop by before the coveted items are all gone!  And, don't forget, next month will be an entire new batch of work available to you as it will rotate out for new items!  So check back frequently.  :-)  

Thanks again for sharing in the good news!  I look forward to seeing you at Spirits in Sanford come October this year, and of course, here at the Coven of Crones too!

Every Witch Way Lane store link!!!

Hello to all of you Halloween enthusiasts out there!  It's almost that time to get your shopping crazy on and hit the mall...but be careful of all those over-zealous zombies out there, after all, it doesn't open until Midnight....the bewitching hour! 

For the moment, when you click on the link, all you will find is a super cool page, but the links to view the individual artist's works are not available yet until it "officially" opens after midnight.  So be patient and have fun clicking on the button!  LOL  Practice makes perfect ya know.  :-P 

Anyway, I hope to see you all at the spooktacular grand opening for the shop!  I will see you at Every Witch Way Lane!


Aside from having to get my first art doll ready for the Every Witch Way Lane store opening event that starts at midnight on May 15, I was also faced with another deadline for the same exact date!  The 2nd deadline was for The Spirits in Sanford Halloween show event for this coming October!!!

It is probably a good thing that they both had the same deadline because it really motivated me to finish up some stuff that I was working on, especially since I needed material to submit for my application for the show event.   As most of you already know from my other blog, The Pixie Knoll, I have recently moved into a new home (which was quite an undertaking as any relocation is) and too, having had a hysterectomy in December, then trying to prepare for the Quinlan Doll and Teddy Bear Show in Philadelphia which was at the beginning of this month of May, and, then, deal with daily life in between all of the above, it's really been quite a nightmare!  

With so much on my plate in the recent months, I guess I am fortunate enough to have been able to accomplish the amount of work that I have been able to create in such a short period of time.  Unfortunately, I had wanted to submit more witches for my application, but there just was not enough time for me to get the other 2 completed that I have started on my work bench.   Regardless,  I did manage to have some stuff to present for my application.   So, now, we will just have to wait and see if I will make it into the show.  Granted, I have yet to do a Halloween themed show, but, once you see the Gaggle of Crones coming out of the Coven here, I think you will see why I wanted to do the show.  I have a feeling these delightful witches will surely put a smile on anyone's face. 

Currently, I have 2 witches in progress on my work bench.  Both are rather charming characters if I do say so myself.  One is so ugly only a mother could love her...but the other, well, her little face just makes you want to take her and give her a big hug.  Such a sweet little face she has.  I really can't wait for all of you to meet them.  :-)   

At any rate, in the meantime, while you are "patiently" waiting for their arrival, I will leave you with something fun that I just finished up.  These are little pumpkin head dangle dolls.  They are made out of paper mache and are roughly 6 inches long.  I will be making more of these as well.  The picture doesn't do them justice at all as they are a lot cuter in person.   I hope you like them!  Let me know what ya think of them.

It's Frightful!

I've been busier than a ghost at midnight on Halloween Eve !  It's crazy but it's true.  :-P

First of all, I am a member of the face book page, Every Witch Way Lane.  At EWWL, we have formed a Halloween themed shoppe for the Fall and Halloween enthusiast's shopping pleasure! 

The idea behind the shop is that you can purchase items online from your favorite Halloween artist in one single location!  What makes it even better is that you will always see fresh, new one-of-a-kind works by very talented artist. 

Not only that, BUT the work debuts exclusively to Every Witch Way Lane for the one month it is available in the shop, then it will rotate out for other new and exciting pieces for the following month!  You will always find new pieces to add to your collection of Halloween artifacts!  In fact, it is so exclusive, I am not permitted to show pictures of the new piece I just completed until the shop is open to the public!  How is that for exclusive?!!!1

So, when does the shopping excitement begin?  The shop is slated to open on May 15th at Midnight!  As soon as I have a link to the shop, I will be posting it here for you so that you can start to make those purchases for your collection.  In the meantime, I will leave you with a teaser sampler picture to give you an idea of what you might find within the shoppe!   Stay tuned for the link!

Welcome to the Coven of Crones Blog!

This is a new venture that will feature Halloween themed art dolls and figures and other fun items that pertain to the fall season and Halloween.  Here, you will discover my artistic twist on old crones, mystics, witches, gypsies, ghost, goblins and dark pixies too!  You could say it's taboo, but rather, some might chalk it up to me exploring my "dark" side in the fantasy world.  Either way, you will have a howling good time as I'm sure it will be a fun ride on the broom stick! So, please, visit often for some of my boo-tiful works!

Here is a small sample of what you might find here at Coven of Crones!
