Sunday Guest Spot Light WovenLotus!!! Amazing spooky Photographer and graphic artist!

Hey Peeps and Minions lol!
Today I would love to introduce you to an amazing Spooky photographer I met on Etsy! She is the one who made my too cute to spook Banner that is in black and white.  Her Etsy name is MadHouseMauly. I asked her to send something to me talking about herself..this is her quote.

"My obsession is my photography; i roam the countryside looking for abandoned, haunted, creepy, morbid looking places. My grandfather was a photographer as is my mother. My mother started me out young visiting cemeteries, historical landmarks and abandoned places. I strive to capture the feeling of each place a visit in each photograph.
100% of profits go towards my charity ~ WovenLotus. Created to help comfort survivors of sexual violence. We can do it with your help!"

Please check out her NON PROFIT website above and her Etsy store here!
I am totally in love with her photography! I wish I could take her to a local cemetary here in Indianapolis. It is out in the country and very old. The stones are so Gothic and aged. I know she would capture the surreal beauty of it!

Here are few of her photographs that she sent me...ENJOY! 
She just started making custom graphics for folks so please give her a visit and tell her Carmen from Spooky Hollow sent ya!
