New at ShellHawk's Creations

One of the things I realized as I was setting up my booth at Jack Russell Brewery last year was the fact that people couldn't see what my pumpkin pots look like when they're lit. An unlit pumpkin pot looks bereft and incomplete. A lit pot creates the right mood. I decided to print out photos of my jacks, frame them, and set them up as part of my display, just so people could see my wares in all their jack-o'-lanterny goodness. Then someone walks up to the booth.

"How much for the picture?"

I was caught off-guard for a minute. It just had never occurred to me that someone would actually want the picture of the pumpkin pot. I mean, who would want a picture when they could own the real thing, right? Silly me.

I sold the picture to him and made a mental note to offer them this season.

So here it is, this season, and I'm starting to offer prints of my jack-o'-lantern pots. They come in black mats, and the prints themselves are either 8 x 10 or 5 x 7. The mats are 8 x 10 and 11 x 14, so all you have to do is drop these little babies in your favorite frame and you're good to go.

I've put a couple in the ShellHawk's Creations Etsy shop, and will be adding more as days go by. Please let me know what you think!


  1. Nice! I was gonna say, you could use some of those battery operated tealights to light 'em up too.

  2. Hi there. Been a long time lurker and I am a fan. So glad that your time of the year is approaching!

  3. ha! isn't that always the way? still, it means that your work is indeed terrific--people want pictures of it! very cool (but I'd still rather have the little pumpkin pot!)

  4. Nice set up! And give 'em what they want! next time add the kisses for a buck too lol
