EHAG creative Challenge on eBay

PLEASE check out the EHAG groups (Eclectic Halloween Artist Group) on eBay. We are a group of 71 members who LOVE Halloween year round! This months creative Challenge was "Halloween Carnival" Our member Joee (Cartbeforthehorse) created this GREAT banner for us to use in our auctions. The challenge starts Friday August 15th!!!

I designed a "Carnival of Ghosts" Halloween tree. Using all the bright carnival colors in my hand sculpted ghosts. the tree has tiny orange lights that add to the fun look. I also created some carnival "Bling" by creating ornaments out of vintage crystal beads. I think this wonderful poem describes the tree:

Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen,
Voices whisper in the trees, "Tonight is Halloween!"
