My nose to the Halloween grindstone...

"Baby Just Wants to Cuddle" - paper clay, wood, acrylics on wood platform.
2017 by Ellie Gee 

What does your art table look like? Mine is so overflowing with projects, I think I may need to knock down a wall and enlarge my studio. Seriously, I have way too many things calling my attention. I would say that is a good thing, right? Keeps me busy and motivated, especially as these are the months I really put my nose to the grindstone, for MONSTERS & MERRIMENT is only about three months away.

A few photos of the MacabreWebs booth from last year's show.

The "Other Halloween" ... (UPDATE)

Tomorrow we fly, for it is Walpurgis!

UPDATE: ... we really did fly - on a plane, that is!
Flew with my dear Hubby and our good friend John into Burbank Airport in LA.
Spent three full weeks, traveling (by rental car) from California to Nevada, to Arizona, to New Mexico, to Colorado,  to Kansas, to Missouri, to Illinois, to Kentucky... then back home again to Tennessee.

Most EPIC vacation, ever. 
Now it's back to putting my nose to the grindstone, in full Halloween mode..!

Happy Springtime, everyone!

Greetings, dearies!

Loving the springtime weather we're having here in Middle Tennessee.
Of course, I dread the hot summer, but it's what I call a 'necessary evil' to get through as we look forward to glorious autumn.

I'm working on so many different things at the moment; namely, putting the latest Monsters & Merriment show together. Got word from the folks at Fontanel that last year's event brought in something like 3000 attendees. Whoa! That made my head spin! How to top that? You'll just have to come and see.

Did you know that 2018 marks the 200th anniversary of the published book, Frankenstein: The Modern Prometheus, by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley? What an astonishing impact that story has had in our modern media, from countless offshoots of the story, to movies by the score; you name it. 

This year's show theme will be dedicated to Frankenstein!

FrankenBunny arises!

*** UPDATE: - - -  SOLD!!! ***

A crack of lightning fills the midnight sky ... from a pile of broken leftover eggs, candy wrappers and busted up Easter baskets, he rises ... and walks .... searching for old carrots!

Meet FrankenBunny.
He missed Easter, but is now ready for Halloween!

FrankenBunny is a resin sculpture I created, mounted on a live-edged wood plank, and surrounded by a few broken leftover eggs, plus his eyes glow in the dark, too!
He stands approx. 10" high, 7" wide, and is signed by me.

He is available this month, beginning April 10th, at the ever-awesome PFATT Marketplace.

The monsters are stirring ...

The frost is melting ... and it's ALIVE once again!

Save the date... for a bigger, badder, more MONSTROUS time is in store for this year's show.

Returning again to the fabulous Fontanel complex in Nashville!

Teddy Bear Valentine keepsake box

It's been said that a heart-shaped box was where you kept your truest, deepest love. And it's also said that for many of us, a teddy bear is our first love, trusted confidant and most beloved childhood companion.

My original, hand-decorated and designed "Teddy Bear Valentine Keepsake Box" is featured for the month of February at the wonderful PFATT (Prominent Folk Artist's Trinkets and Treasures) Marketplace, just in time for Valentine's Day.  

Now, don't be surprised - it is not the typical MacabreWebs offering. You won't find any pumpkins or bats or skulls; instead, it's a sweet, smiling and rosy-cheeked Teddy Bear sitting on a big sparkly red glitter heart, affixed to the top of a 3" x 3" metal latch keepsake box.

Inside the lid, you'll find an original poem that I wrote to express our loving feelings on this holiday: 

In the end
And from the start
You will always
Have my heart ...
I love you!

I used to collect things like this when I was a young'un, and know that there are other girls and ladies out there who too would surely cherish a one of a kind gift such as this for Valentine's Day. Candy is good, flowers are nice, but a Teddy Bear such as this will last forever!

Happy Birthday!

To my all-time fave (and fellow Aquarian), Alice Cooper, who today reaches a milestone of 70 years on earth!

Hope to meet up with you again, dear Sir. And when we do, please pull my hair like you did the last time. Swoon!
