The Kandy Kat and friends..

I have been spending quite a bit of Super Fantabulous Magical time in my studio lately.........
I have been dreaming up Character's for my 2009' Halloween collection. This Irresistible Kitty Kat, is offering TRICK'S FOR TREATS. And Boy, does she know a lot of Trick's. Just LOOK at her bag of Scrum*dilly*uptious Treats!!!!

Mr. Skelly here, cannot believe all the talent that one Kitty Kat can possess.. I think he's hoping she will share a treat or two..
If you would like to learn more about these two one-of-a-kind characters, you can click on the link.
Mr. Skelly's friends, Agatha the Witch and Mr. Mummy got sidetracked on their way to the party. They found themselves staring into a costume shops window. Mr. Mummy saw this cool textured cloth outfit and just had to go in and be fitted for a new look and while Agatha was waiting, she noticed this outrageously cool hat.... With thier new atire, I think these two will most definately have to have thier pic's taken before they find thier way to the party.

My Niece e-mailed me this fabulous pic and I wanted to share with all of you! Isn't this incredible? This picture was taking in Logan, Utah which is about a half hour north east of where I live. It isn't uncommon to find deer in your yard in the early mornings or late evenings. When the winters are harsh and long they come down to the foothills to find food. However, I have never in my lifetime seen one come right up to the house like this curious fellow.It looks like this little deer may stick around as he has made a new friend..

I am looking sooo forward to next weekend. I am going to see Kari and my Grandson Parker, and.. their brand new HOUSE! Kari has worked very,very hard over the years and has made many a sacrifice. She and Parker so much deserve this.
Parkers Great Granny Carolyn, Aunt Tiff and Aunt Amanda, along with his cousins Jasmine and Kasen will be going as well.. Are you Ready for all of us? lol..... I did text you right?

I am doubly excited because it has been awhile since we have gotten together. We have both had hectic work schedules and well, yes I do have a sort of a phobia of driving very far outta town by myself. I know that sounds strange, and it is .. I used to keep it a secret.. but the cats outta the bag now. Anyways, Great Granny Carolyn (My Mama) will be driving and everything will be A- Okay.

I want to take a house warming surprise for Kari and one for Park! HMMMMMM!!!!!
Kari has great taste, and is a Fabulous decorator. Hmmmmm!!!! I wonder?

Parker has about every toy a boy could want And I have a great time playing with all of them! In fact, the last time I was there, we played the Wii oh my gosh was that fun! And Oh My Gosh was I sore the next day. Ol' granny Diane has an idea for Parker..Hmmmm!!! What could it be? We will have too see:)

Calling 5 Lucky People!

So.. I got this idea from the lovely Kari.. and decided, well I wanted HER to do something for ME.. and she is going to because I was one of the Five who posted to her blog... so NOW, I get to do the same for 5 Lucky People.. come on... you know you want to play!!
The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me, Dianie. My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.(but there's a pretty good chance you might!)
2- What I create will be just for you.
3- It'll be done by April 7th.
4- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry or an article on properly cleaning your face before a masque. I may scrapbook something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did it will then win a fabulous homemade gift made by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it! Have fun playing! Just one more thing... to make it more personal, you can tell me if you would rather have something Easter-ish or would you like something Halloween-ish? OR...should I just surprise you? just leave it in your comment :)

New E-bay Listings!

I thought I would give you a peek at my new E-bay listings! This is " SKelly Gourdelly" Yes, you guessed right. He is a mischievous little Gourd Skelly Ornie.
He is hoping for a new home, where he will be treasured forever and ever...............

My 2009' Halloween art Designs have just begun....

Oh, and this ol' witch is also looking for a new place to call home.... Inspired by my childhood memories of storybook witches. She has been created onto a blank porcelain ornament.
She would be a wonderful addition to any Halloween collectors treasures of Halloween collectibles.
