Computers ~ UGH!

Hello . . . 
If anyone gets an email saying they were un-subscribed from my email list
and they did not un-subscribe,
I'm trying to get to the bottom of what's going on!
It's definitely a problem with the web based program as I too am getting all
the notifications of lots of un-subscribers.
I've emailed them an hope to have an answer soon!
(They have no phone contact ~ Grrrr :-)

In the meantime in your "un-subscribe" email there should be a
link to re-subscribe.  Or that same link is in the last newsletter
sent on Sunday as well.

My apologies, bear with me!

thank you . . .

Once again I offer my humble thanks to all of you!
What an amazing adventure the Ghoultide Gathering was.
From the beginning transformation of a simple pole barn to the 
magical experience Ghoultide has become in a mere 10 years.
Thank you . . . .
But . . .  as they say, "no moss grows on rolling stone"!
It's time to hunker down in the studio once again. 
A fast switch is needed to create more traditional &winter holiday items. 
Such is my world ~ Halloween is yet a month away yet
I need to get my brain wrapped around winter squirrels, Santas and warm fuzzies!
Next up on the agenda is the lovely FROM OUR HANDS show!
Won't you join us?
Oh . . .  & last but no least ~ I'm finishing up a last few Halloween pieces
and will offer those for sale on:

Ever yours,

A Wild Hare . . .

Hello friends . . .
Today's "Wild Hare" is truly a Wild Hare!
OR is he A Bunny? A Panda? An Ewok?

Should you like to purchase please email:

Please meet BOO!
The most difficult little fellow to photograph, with his black and off white contrast ~ what a 
way to confuse the camera!  ~ But I digress . . .
Boo is a sweet and silly bunny of black and off white soft mohair.  He has rusty orange wool
felt ear linings and foot pads and is weighted nicely with steel shot to cuddle right into
your hands!
He wears a ruff and "buttons" of vintage seam binding and carries a velvet pumpkin
with real stem! Just shy of 9" to his ear tips.
ship $7.00

Have a Happy Wednesday!

hello . . . .

As summer comes to an end, visual cues hint of the season to come.
A simple leaf on the ground, 2 crows frolicking in the yard, the yellowing
of leaves in the kitchen garden, beckoning harvest time.
Each year I am impatient for fall . . . maybe it's awaiting the "cues" to inspire
new friends, maybe it's just that it holds my "Palette", the one that makes me feel at peace.
Year 'round, my colors of choice are the rich reds, golds, olive greens and pumpkin hues.
They surround us in our home and these colors of the earth have always been my favorites
to work with in the studio.

As I begin working on pieces for the 10th. anniversary Ghoultide Gathering,
I'll pop in with a few fall friends here as well!
