The Final Stretch....

With less than a month until the big day (the Ghoultide Gathering!) I'm feeling quite the combination of euphoria and panic...

The house looks like an explosion, wood pieces and painting supplies everywhere you look, an embarassingly thick layer of dust on the furniture (who has time for dusting when there's painting and sculpting to be done?!) and brightly colored Halloween art on just about every surface.

Add to all this eBay, Etsy, the PFATT Marketplace, commission work and correspondence, and it's easy to see why sleep has been limited. Ah, the joys of self employment. ;)

Soooooooo, yes - absolute bedlam here at the moment, but I do have a few things to share with you.

First, a sneak peek at this month's PFATT Marketplace listing, available after midnight on the 10th of the month. LOTS of fun, this one....

Second, a tiny trinket box, listed now on eBay....

Third, one pair of complimentary passes to the Ghoultide Gathering.

I'm offering these up to the very first collector attending the show who shoots me an email (address to the right). PLEASE do not take the passes if you're unsure about going - let someone take them who can make use of them. Thanks. :) *UPDATE* - the tickets are taken. :)

And finally, I have an apology for all of you who've left such kind comments here on the blog, and have received no response. I so appreciate your thoughtfulness, and can only plead the temporary insanity that descends every year at this time, without fail...And I will catch up in October, I promise....

In the meantime, there's some Halloween art calling my name. ;)

Wishing everyone all the blessings of autumn!

Everything is *SO* beautiful!!!

Did you sell the checkers box yet?

Carolee said...

Thanks so much, all...

Yes, the checkers box sold almost as soon as I posted it, but I hope to complete one more closer to Halloween (but after the show!) :)
