The big day

Whew, am I exhausted. Today we set up our booth and did the preview thing for the Halloween Art Spooktacular. Let me tell you, this is the coolest show. It’s in this awesome neighborhood in St. Joseph, Missouri, in this gorgeous old Victorian mansion. What better place for a Halloween show? The inside is all decorated for Halloween, people were wearing their costumes and everything. And best of all, there were two other dollmakers, Lucky Stradley and Pat Benedict, in the show, whose work is really to die for, no pun intended. (Well, okay, maybe a little bit.) It was so much fun.

So, if you’re in the Kansas City or St. Jo area tomorrow, head up to the Wyeth-Tootle Mansion and pop in to say hi. It’s only $5 and it’s really awesome. And if you’re interested in making dolls, be sure to stop by our booth, because we’re passing out fliers for our doll club, MCODA. I’ll be the one in the pirate hat with the peacock feather.

If you live in the area and you’re interested in dolls, but you can’t come to the show, drop me a line and I’ll send you a copy of the next newsletter so you can come visit our club. We have a lot of fun.

Well, in anticipation of the Halloween Art Spooktacular show where my doll club will be exhibiting in October, I’ve been madly sculpting Halloween pins. I’m ultimately hoping to have a dozen of each of these varieties, which will earn us some much-needed cash, but I couldn’t resist posting some of them on my Etsy site. So here’s a sampling of what I’ve been up to.
