A little rusty...

Wow, I can't believe how much time got away from me this year. I didn't even start back into the Halloween work until the end of July - when I had planned on starting in January! I'm finding the old arthritic fingers aren't cooperating as well as I'd like - I think they're out of practice. :)

Nevertheless, it's onward and upward! My little pumpkin queen make-do is almost finished, as is a recipe box and a couple of ornies. I'm off now to start on a little something for my daughter (she just went 3000 miles away to college a couple of weeks ago and wants to decorate her room), as well as another ornament for the SEHA gals giveaway.

Meanwhile, here's an update on Her Highness. Now, don't mention her hair - she's a little sensitive about that right now. Bad hair day, you know.... As you can see in the first picture, she had just woke up and hadn't even combed it out yet. And she absolutely insisted on wearing her crown for the second photo, even though her hair still needs to be put up and she's not even dressed yet!
Some queens...

Excuses, excuses...

Ok, I'll admit it. I'm a very bad blogger.

Most of the time, I blog on my writing site, but I've neglected this poor newly born baby since I started it last month.

However, I have an excuse. I do! I've been busy working on an item for the Artistic Halloween Queens October Giveaway on Facebook. Here's a preview of my little Pumpkin Queen in progress. She looks a little lumpy and grumpy right now, but give her time. Once she has on her ruff, collar, crown, jewels, and fabulous, curly red hair (ala Q.Elizabeth I), she'll be stylin'. :o)

Check out the Queens' Facebook page throughout the upcoming weeks to see how you can win prizes.

My other two groups, HA31 (HalloweenArtists) and SEHA (Society of Eclectic Halloween Artists) will also have some neat stuff coming soon, so they're worth a look as well.
