New Halloween Charm bracelet! 40 charms!

I just finished a new Halloween Spooky Hollow character charm bracelet! The focal is Ooky the monster. The bracelet is done in antiqued brass findings and has beautiful lamp work beads. The orange beads are shimmering Czech fire polished beads! It is loaded with charms and there are some little coin charms that are hard to see in the photo. It measures 8 inches long and is adjustable.  I plan on listing it in Etsy but if anyone would like to purchase it before I do email me at The price is 48.00 and if you compare the price to other bracelets with less charms that is a wonderful deal for hand made art!
Thanks for peeking! Happy Sunday!

Pc Killer Virus Help!

Save your computer tip!

Last year while do a search for a knitting pattern in yahoo I was hit with a horrible virus that basically killed my pc.

I bought a laptop which I love but I lost all of my personal photos on my old pc. Even some art print photos. When I opened the page that I thought was a knitting pattern it launched this fake anti virus scan and it scans really fast asking you to click yes or no to continue. I thought it really was my anti virus program and clicked a fake pop up that said cancel scan. That was the end of my pc.

 Yesterday like a dummy I searched for a printable sign for my son's birthday party. The oh so familiar fake virus scan started again. This time I realized it was fake and quickly turned off my laptop. When I restarted it and opened windows the page with the fake virus scan came up but this time there was no scanning. I went to my end task menu and got the page to close. I did a real virus scan and thankful by shutting off the pc fast and then ending the page with my task manager I am virus free. I thought my experience might help others who stumble upon this pc killer virus. When it hit last year not even Norton could get rid of it. It is the worst pc virus around.

So, if you happen to click on a web page and suddenly there is a virus's a virus. Turn off you pc and restart fast. Don't click anything!. If the window pops up with the fake scan go to your task manager and a safe window will pop up. ( the task manager is in your start menu ) There will be list of everything running on your pc including all the web pages that you have open. Find the page with the virus and end task. This will close the evil page! Do a full virus scan after and you will beat the virus. I wish I would have known this last year. I hope this helps and I explained it in a way that you can understand.
I am not very good at explaining lol. If you do have a question please email me at

Now I back up my pc by using a little thumb drive. they are small and you can insert them into your computers usb drive. ( the place where you plug in your mouse and printers ) I move all my photos and files to this little thumb drive. You can also back up your computer online. ) Please do this!!!

Happy no virus!

Big hugs

Grimmy bunny & Eggburt!

New Grimmy bunny Easter art doll!

This is my new Grimmy Bunny! He is 8 inches tall, signed and dated and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
I have found  a new way of sealing my dolls that looks amazing!

 The picture doesn't do justice to my bunny!

Grimmy bunny is hand sculpted and an original work of art.
He is holding a very worried Easter Egg named Eggburt. I think he is worried about being eaten or dropped! Either that or Grimmy has morning breath!

You can find him at my Etsy shop!

I hope you are having a beautiful Spring day!

Little monster hugs,
