It's a *PaRtY*! It's a *GiVeAwAy*!! It's *HaLLowEEn*!!!

Yes, it's that time of year again - Miss Vanessa Valencia's annual Halloween Party/Blog Hop. For those new to the experience, here's how it works. If you click HERE it will take you to Party Central, where you'll find a sidebar list of Halloween revelers who've prepared Halloween party blog posts for your enjoyment - visit a few, visit them all - comment if you can (we all adore comments!) and well...just enjoy!

But first, now that you're HERE, do sit down and grab a cupcake....


And maybe a spot of tea from the *magical* Halloween tea chest?


Go ahead, you choose...


I think I'll have a cup of that lemon-ginger. Sooooooo good. ;)

 

You know, one of these days, I'm going to have a FOR REAL Witch's Tea Party, complete with wild hats, striped stockings and wicked good brew! Of course, the problem for a Halloween artist is that October is the craziest, busiest month of the year...but still, maybe a tea for my fellow Halloween artist and collector friends? Must think about this and find a way to make it happen. ;)

In the meantime, this cyber-party thing is quite fun, don't you think?

Oh - and before I forget, I have a little giveaway to share, just my way of saying "thanks for stopping by"....

On Halloween night, I'll draw a name from among the comments here (you MUST leave me a way to contact you too), and will offer a credit to my Etsy shop in the amount of two free prints of your choosing, OR any one ornament of those remaining. I think there are three ornaments left as I write this, but go take a peek. Here's one of my favorites, a sparkly cupcake....


It's hand painted by Yours truly, and initialed very small on the back (which says "Wicked Sweet!").

Thank you so much for visiting my little corner of the blogosphere, and joining me in a cup of cyber-tea.  I know you have other blogs to visit, other parties to attend, so I won't keep you. It's been just *magical*, and I hope you have a very Happy Halloween!

♥ Carolee

Happy Halloween and your designs/art is so cute. I'm in love with the cupcake decoration. I even have a Halloween tree decorated, so I'll have to bookmark a link to your work. :)

So happy you invited us into your studio.
I know how wicked busy you are this time of year. Perhaps we should have a Witch party in spring. I know we will all need fresh motivation after snowfall (and fall and fall)

I have a feeling before the big day your shop will be bare!
