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.

*It's easy to purchase as many ornaments as you like.  Just add the items to your cart and checkout with Paypal instantly
