Wicked sweet creations!

Halloween hasn't officially hit the bewitching hour yet as we still have just over a week before it arrives.  And, there is still plenty of time to check out what Halloween creations I still have available for purchase on my website.  http://www.thepixieknoll.com/coven-of-crones.html    I know I said last week that I was going to add them to my Etsy store soon. and I do still intend to do just that.  However,  I have a festival event this coming weekend that I am showing at and so thought it best to just wait until after the festival to see what I have left.  I am certain that all of you guys understand my reasoning.  After the festival, I will indeed be posting up what I have left for purchase.   With that said, again, if you are interested in making a purchase prior to me leaving for the festival, just send me an email at lori@thepixieknoll.com  for your inquiry.  Otherwise, I hope to see some of you good folks at the Mount Dora Craft Festival!  My location this year will be at the Congregational Church of Mount Dora, 650 N. Donnelly Street, Mount Dora, Florida  32757.   Remember, I will be located INSIDE of the church location so be certain to come in and say hello!

In the meantime, while we wait for all of the jack-o-lanterns to burn down to their final glow of their candlewicks,  I thought I would share with you what I have been working on for the next major holiday event and for the local craft fair.  After all, one must continue to create and prepare for all the holidays, whether they be super spooky or just spooktacular!  

It took me over a week to complete all 20 paper clay snowmen ornaments; from the sculpting, to sanding, right down to the final painting.   All the work was well worth it as they came out super adorable!  Each one is unique and are one-of-a-kind, measuring approximately 5 to 6 inches in length.  No molds were used to create these little cuties!  If you should be interested in making a purchase, please email me the description of the particular ornament.  Example:  red hat, with green polka dot scarf.  Like I said, each one is different and no 2 are painted alike.  These little cuties are $20 each.  Or, if you rather, you can just wait for the craft festival this coming weekend and hope you can get your hands on one then....if they are not all gone by then.    (-: 






So, there ya have it folks!   I hope you find them just as adorable as I think that they are.  Have a spooktacular day and thanks for stopping by the Coven of Crones!

Halloween Auctions on Ebay! Special starting prices!

Halloween is fast approaching and will be here and gone in no time as the fall weather starts to settle in upon us.   I'm sure many of you have your wonderful Halloween collections in full display right now and have been on the search for new additions to bolster your collections.  If you are like me, then you tend to add a little every year.  It is always nice to add to our collections.   I think it shows a part who of we are in the world; a reflection on our personalities! 

With that said, I have 5 of my latest creations up on eBay right now at low starting prices.  Remember, these are all one-of-a-kind pieces, where no molds were used in their creations.  NO one out there will have a piece like these...they are unique in their own way...an ORIGINAL piece of art work.   Below you will find their pictures with their auction links.  At the end of the auction, if they have not sold, they will be listed into my Etsy store at their regular prices, so do NOT miss out on the special starting prices!   Pictures truly do not do these justice.  You will be amazed at the level of detail in each of these sculpts!  One patron at the Spirits in Sanford said they were so life-like that she expected them to speak to her!  :-D  That was an awesome compliment!

The Aftermath of Spirits in Sanford...picture heavy!!

Spirits in Sanford has come and gone, and it's time to deal with the aftermath of the show.  What was total chaos in the studio the month leading up to the show event, has now fallen to the wayside of the clean-up crew.  That means ME = The Clean-up Crew.  HAHA  I have to tell you folks...it's going to be a frightful experience entering into the bowels of the studio and putting things back in their proper places.  It looks like hell hounds ran ramped through my room and unleashed the Kraken while they were at it!   No over exaggeration here! 

At any rate, I did want to thank all of you the kind folks that did come out to the Spirits in Sanford event to see the show and a special thank you to those who took the time to stop by my table and make a purchase.  Your support is so important to the show success because it enables the artisans to continue attending the shows.  It's a hand-in-hand sort of thing.  No support means no artist, and no artist means no show!   Aside from that, I did want to say thank you to all of you who did come out and spend some time at the show and seeing some of the awesome stuff that the artist brought with them this year!  It just keeps getting better and better!

Aside from that, I wanted to share some pics of the finished pieces that I did for the show.  If you see something you are interested in or would like further details on an item,  please contact me, as they are all available for purchase.  The idea is that I would like to give my faithful followers a chance to make a purchase before I list them up to the world in my Etsy store.  I realize not everyone is able to travel to a show or sometimes things come up in real life that take precedence.  Anyway, all of the items you see here today are available.  If you see something you like or you would like more pictures, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I have paypal and I will ship the items.   My email is lori@thepixieknoll.com .  With that said, I have already listed these items to my website www.thepixieknoll.com , but I have not linked them to the Etsy store, nor did I include pricing on them.  Like I said, I wanted to give you kind folks a chance at an item before I put it up on Etsy.

Anyway, enough of all this gab...let's get on with the show!    (-:   I hope you like them and would love to hear your feedback!

Well, folks, thank you all so much for taking a look at my work and for your interest too.   Remember, if you see something you are interested in, please feel free to contact me.  Otherwise, these will be listed up into the Etsy store, and then will be hauled off to the Mount Dora Craft Show in a couple of weeks at the end of the month here.  :-)   So, this is your chance to get your hands on something before the rest of the world does! 

And, as an after thought, just because the Spirits in Sanford show is over, doesn't mean I will not be creating Halloween themed stuff all year long.  The Every Witch Way Lane store will still be running a new item each month all year long, so stay tuned for the next shop entry!  :-) 

As always, thank you very much for taking the time to stop by the Coven of Crones!
