Shes in My Head

As soon as I saw this photograph I knew I had to include it in this blog! It looks like a picture straight from one of my dreams.

I dream a lot (its been my experience that many artsy people do) and I remember them on a regular basis. I have places I return to and this above photo looks like both the secret room in my apartment and the abandoned building I always get stuck in. And then of course there's this fish print... One of the more unfortunate scenes from my sleepy conquests.

If you like these prints as much as I do then don't forget to take a peek at marinkel's Etsy shop. She has more along the same lines, all ridiculously brilliant.

Shes Clearly Smarter

So dollfacedesign, why have I not heard of your shop before today?! Your style has such a vintage feel to it, your subjects are somewhat creepy but also whimsical and this girl has a brain for hair!

Where have you been hiding??

I never know what to search to find shops like this but embarrassingly enough it looks like Layla is using the same tags I have been for my anatomy items, hehe

Always the last place you'd think to look...

Cupcakes that Bite Back

I don't know about most of you out there but when I was younger I loved the movie Casper and Hocus Pocus. Now it just doesn't feel like Halloween without them. I'm too old for Casper, I do realize this, but it was on my TV the other day... so I watched it. Hocus Pocus still has a place in my Halloween but Casper? well its not so great when your 22.

I made these Halloween themed cupcakes for Etsy. A Frankencake on the left and a Ghostly Vanilla on the right. Ok, I just made up those names right now and they're horrible but if I list them I'll try harder :)

really I will!!

Rare Gems

Maybe you've seen these delicate beauties around Etsy before. They come from the mind of a self proclaimed flea market junkie and are sold in her MaidOfClay Etsy shop.

All these pieces are hand sculpted from porcelain clay with much attention to detail. Some give off creepy vibes while others are just plain fun. Such clever design.

Its Coming...

Fall is quick approaching which means All Hallows Eve is soon around the corner. Are you decking your porches this year?

pumpkinhollow's Etsy shop offers quite the selection of creepy goods to help you decorate this time around. The creator is Pumpkinrot and he has been quoted as saying:

"When my age restricted me from collecting candy on Halloween night (in any socially respectable manner), I decided to do something about it."

You can just feel his passion for his craft right there. Oh how I wish I knew someone as immature as me to go trick-or-treating with...
