Happy Halloween 2019

Hello all,

Whew, it’s done!  I really enjoyed reaching my goal to post projects for the 31 Days of Halloween.  It got me back into my creative groove, thank goodness!  Now it is on to Fall and Christmas.  My plan is to post more tutorials as I craft through the rest of the holiday season.  So, please let me know if you have ideas or suggestions for upcoming projects.

Below are a few photos of my favorite Halloween creation.  Of course, it is a mixed media project featuring great texture and assemblage of new and re-purposed items.  I love how it turned out and I hope you love it too.  I have also included a video compilation of all my projects for the 31 Days of Halloween.
