I'll start with my new art items..Then the events in my home.

Every year I make an Ugly Pumpkin guy! This is number 3 since I started making them...This is my ugliest yet lol!
You can find him and new Grimmy Christmas cards in my ebay shop!

Here are The Grimmy Christmas cards..or Halloween lol! You get 10 matte recycled cards with envelopes.

Watch for A new Grimmy Nodder tree topper and
a new guy SCARDEECAT! The other nodder sold last week.

These guys will be finished tomorrow.
Halloween season has hit already for me and everything clay I have listed has sold. Seriously if you see something you like you might want to get it soon. I am not saying that to get sales....They are really going fast. I am trying to keep up with making new dolls and clay!

I listed 4 dolls last weekend...they all sold but like I said I have new items I am completing almost daily. Most are going to be listed in Ebay. I cut my store down due to fees so I can list the new items without getting slammed with fees. I also have art dolls that I wont list until closer to Halloween. There are lots of items in my Etsy shop also. You can find my shop to the right of this post.

I am also making a very limited amount of Halloween bracelets.

In my next blog I have new spooky house things to tell you! farm ghost stories are real things that are happening in our house...ghost or no ghost the last event scared me. I am still freaked out.

Oh heck I will tell you now...about a week after the closet episode I was going to bed and honest to goodness I felt my hair lift and drop. I have long hair. This scared me big time. I was standing in my room with nothing but the ceiling above me. I didn't open my closet door since the day it happened until today. I have had it barricaded with a large suit case lol...You would too! If you missed it it was about 5 am and I was doing my hair in my bedroom..I heard scratching in my closet and then the door opened about 2 inches. The sweater I had hanging on the door started to sway back and forth. It is a heavy knit sweater that belonged to my dad. The scratching sounded like a dog pawing at the door. Today I searched for any holes where an animal could get through and found nothing. The cat food was untouched and there were no animal droppings. You tell me what scratched the door and opened it. No cats were in the room...Then My hair being pulled up and dropped. What caused that I don't know but it scared me so badly I slept with the light on. I was so freaked I called a ghost hunter friend today to get his opinion and he thinks I do have a ghost. I always think twice about posting this because of people thinking I am nuts or lying...its true and I cant explain either event. I am not looking forward to sleeping tonight but my rational mind says do it. Last night I had a really bad dream. The kind of dream that you know you are dreaming but can't move. It was very realistic and scared me to death. It was so real I had to sit up for about an hour with the lights on again. I am too embarrassed to tell it to the world but it was the most frightening dream I have ever had in my life. My mind keeps trying to find a rational reason for all the things that are happening and I could until now. I hope the dream was just a dream. Ok now that I freaked myself out subject lol If someone else told this story I probably would not believe them until it happened to me.

( btw the barn ghost video was me being silly. The story above really happened. )

On a lighter note,

I'll be back for some very cool Spooky Hollow Surprises One little cool thing is everyone who shops Spooky Hollow for Halloween gets a little spooky present with each sale!

More later!!

Hey Carmen, I believe you! I went through it most of my life..I know crazy but true. I felt the same way, never told anyone afraid of what they might think, up until a few years ago..I wasn't the only one that saw them in my house! Anyway this house we moved in 6 yrs. ago seems to be ok. When I used to get freaked out I would make everyone camp out in the family room..I was scarrrred! lol
I hope they're good..take care.
