Happy Halloween ~ Ghoultide Gathering 2013 Photos Part 1

A Happy Halloween to all.  I thought it would be fun to share some photos I snapped at the Ghoultide Gathering show in Chelsea, Michigan of which I was honored to be an exhibitor once again.  The artists works were outstanding and a fabulous time was had by all.  It's always such a pleasure to meet collectors and fellow artists in person.  So without further ado, here they are:



Sheila Bentley of Primdolly Designs and my show neighbor on one side




The talented Painter Melissa Belanger who was my other show neighbor 




Scott Smith of Rucus Studio




















Susan Bartolucci of Tinsell and Whimsy




Pam Gracia of Soft in the Head




 I will be adding more photos in the next post, so please watch out for part 2.  If you are a Halloween art collector or fan, this is a show not to be missed.

 I hope you have enjoyed take a peek.

Happy October!  I returned from The Ghoultide Gathering show in Michigan a couple of weeks ago and had an amazing time!  I met so many amazing collectors and made many friends.  The people of Michigan were so welcoming, I felt like I grew up there.  Since then I have been busy as a bee in my studio creating new ornaments for those of you who were unable to attend and for those of you who were at the show and wanted even more.
