We were at Michaels on the weekend, with our trusty coupons. Did you see us? We were the ones buying everything NOT Christmas, all the orange paper, orange ribbon, Monarchs, etc... and the huge 2 x 3 foot frame for my Trick 'r Treat poster. It now is framed, hung and gorgeous!
This poster is an inspiration, we're already planning what we'll do for Hallowe'en 2014!
Well, our entire Los Angeles trip was an inspiration and I've started working on three bears that will be Day of the Dead bears. The male will be black, the female white (oh so soft!) and traditionally decorated/dressed. The third will be orange, a Hallowe'en/Day of the Dead mixture. All will have removable paper maché masks.
Perhaps a little too ambitious but it's brewing: how about a creepy caged rat? I'm drawn to this creature made by etsy artist YoltansArt and since I already make rats this could be a very cool new extension of my critters to make a Hallowe'en prop for my haunt in 2014. We'll see...
