Halloween Tree Painting Progress

I'm not a painter. I don't know how to paint. I've never done it. Kind of. If you don't include my office in my last house, that is.

But considering I've been away from clay for so long, and Hallowe'en calls so loudly -

And Aaron Brothers is out of business and had a sale on everything having to do with painting -

I decided to try.
So this here is my very first painting on canvas.
I have no idea what I'm doing, but in spite of that, it seems to be turning out well. 
Eventually, I'll get it done.  There are lots of pumpkins to paint.
Once it's done, I'll get some prints made.
Meanwhile, I might just be able to get my segment for the Charmed Pot done before the show this week...

Midsummer Scream!

Another Midsummer Scream has come and gone, and I cannot wait for next year, when (hopefully) I can be a vendor there, again!
Artis David Everett of Chicken Lips chats with a
fan next to his delightful dead Madame Leota.
Every year, David Markland and Claire Dunlop - plus the White Bats, their personal army of volunteers - gather together the very best of the Hallowe'en community for this incredible weekend convention. The vendors display a dizzying array of strange, unusual, and spooky wares, from makeup and costuming to movie posters and soaps to paintings and sculpture!
The Ghostbusters of So. Cal. were in the house, with their packs and coveted copy of Tobin's Spirit Guide.
I discovered a new (for me) vendor in Haunted Manor.

And there was just so much cool stuff to be had! I really wish I'd had more to spend!
I can honestly say that I'd never seen a mouse murder house before, but I suppose it was inevitable.
The Hall of Shadows was filled with small, walk-through haunts which were a ton of fun, plus there were some very elaborate and drool-inducing displays.

I tell you, when I've paid off all the dang attorney's fees from my divorce, there will be some serious thought about the decorating style of my new place... 
 To all the folks at Midsummer Scream, see you next year!

Monster Coffee

This is about how I feel today, with all the middle-aged lady's lack of REM sleep. Or sleep in blocks of longer than three hours...

I would love to know who made this mug! If anyone knows and can send a link to the artist's page, I'm more than happy to give credit.

Summer Reading

In all honesty, I haven't read any of these. I just love the cover art! So vintage creepy!

Click on the pics if you dare!

 Happy reading, my Darklings!

Planet Doom! Hauntcast Post Mortem is Back

Just in time for a mid-week build day!

9 Months in the making, but it's finally here!

HAUNTCAST POST MORTEM 11 - Dungeon of Doom featuring Brent Wilson of Planet Doom Haunted House, Jasper Anderson of Chickenprops.com, David and Claire of Midsummer Scream and music from The Spooky.

Download here http://hauntcast.net/wp-content/uploads/shows/HauntcastPM11.mp3

The site is being migrated to a dank place, and should be in its new, fetid home in a few days. It will then be available in iTunes, Google Play, Sticther etc...

BTW, Baker has also started a Patreon page for Hauntcast, so if you have a few bones to throw out to us monthly, head on over:
We are 2/3rd of way to our 1st goal of bi-monthly shows. If we reach this by next week I am going to drop a CNC tutorial video for making tombstones. Please support us on https://www.patreon.com/hauntcast for more frequent shows, video tutorial and product review and special content for patrons. Thank you!

Hauntcast - Back Again!

From the crew who put the "fun" in functional alcoholism, another episode of Hauntcast is about to drop - probably tomorrow!

Chris Baker has missed the podcast spotlight and roped the rest of us into making Hauntcast episodes every other month, or possibly even monthly, depending on --

That's right! YOU!

He put up a Patreon page for Hauntcast, where you can make a small (or large) monthly donation to help support the show and the expenses which come with making it. We're halfway to our first goal, so if you can afford to throw in a few bones, please do!

We're just dying to give you your Hallowe'en fix!

The Hauntcast Patreon page is here.

Listen to back episodes of Hauntcast here.
