I received some photos this morning from the “Hollywood Halloween” Benifit October 18, 2008.
Children’s arts programming for the Performing Arts Association, the Robidoux Resident Theatre and the Saint Joseph Symphony got a boost recently from a Hollywood Halloween benefit that raised $13,000.
I donated a “Classic Monsters” Halloween tree, Bobbie Cronk purchased the tree in a silent auction. Thank you Bobbie!

I have one more tree donation this year for the Saint Joseph Downtown Association... I'll post photos on Friday.

Off to my studio to sculpt! Bugs & Hisses

I greeted people as they arrived at the "Hollywood Halloween"

Sad news and a fresh start

It is with great sadness to announcing I’m stepping down as the leader and Member of EHAG Eclectic Halloween Artist Group. I'm leaving due to creative differences, EHAG has become a wonderful group of Halloween folk artists . . . I just don’t fit into a folk art group. I have always loved the macabre, quirky, ghoulish, creepy and sometimes a little morbid dark humor and art.

I wish EHAG members all the best and I know with their new leadership they will grow into a bigger and better Halloween artist group. We will probably see them next year in a major magazine! Visit the EHAG artist link on my blog to view all the EHAG artist Halloween art news.

I will still be working every day in my Halloween studio creating some crazy doll or ornament and I hope to start selling on my Etsy site. Next year will be GREAT! I already have designs in my head and will be marketing my creepy goodies to some great little shops in the Kansas City area. I have been turned down three times by Dept. 56 as a designer . . . Maybe that’s a good thing! So I will keep sculpting my one of a kind Halloween goodies with just a touch of more creepy added to them.

FYI: For a very limited time I will be creating Holiday Ornaments and listing them as "Buy it now" on eBay. Watch for more unique OOAK Holiday ornaments and gifts designed by me.
