AtmosFX Coupon Giveaway!

AtmosFX Ghostly Apparitions offers spooks for windows and walls!
It has been a very long time since I've done a giveaway here, and I must say that since the stars seem to have aligned just right, now is the perfect time!

While I was attending Midsummer Scream, I popped over to the AtmosFX display and chit-chatted for a bit. While I was there, I was given six 25% off coupons, each of which has a code for you to use at checkout whether you buy their digital decorations or some of their AtmosGear! (They do Christmas digital decorations, too!) And because it's how I roll, I will give all six coupons away to my readers!

What's even better than 25% off of great digital decorations? Well, I'll tell you!

AtmosFX has teamed up with Michael Dougherty, creator of Trick 'r Treat, to make an official Trick 'r Treat projection package! I'm so stoked!
From their website:
AtmosFX, Legendary Pictures, and filmmaker Michael Dougherty have joined together to create a stunning new digital decoration that captures the spirit of Dougherty’s 2007 indie horror classic “Trick ’r Treat.” 
The AtmosFX “Trick ’r Treat” Digital Decoration features Sam, the mysterious child in the burlap-sack mask, who ties together the feature film’s intertwined Halloween-themed stories. These all-new vignettes will remain true to the theme of the original movie, in which Sam dispenses his own unique brand of grisly justice on anyone who does not adhere to the traditions of Halloween. 
Like its R-rated film counterpart, this digital decoration features horror-themed content and is not suitable for younger audiences. 
AtmosFX’s “Trick ’r Treat” Digital Decoration will be available as a high-definition (1080p) digital download in late September, 2016.

The giveaway will end on Friday, September 2nd, so you'll have your coupon code in plenty of time to order your new toys!

Good luck, and spread the word!

A Few More Things -- But --

Even though I'm still putting more Halloween things in my ShellHawk's Creations Etsy store, they'll be gone soon!
I'll be taking down my Halloween offerings in the shop soon, in order to keep some stock for my upcoming Halloween and Vine show in Petaluma on September 24th.

And Now For Something Completely Different

Who's the dumbest person you've ever met?

A teacher shared this on Reddit, and I couldn't resist passing it along. (Hat tip to Shadow Manor for posting this on Facebook.) The comments are as funny as the original post.

WARNING: Do not read while drinking anything. It will come out your nose!

And by the way, who's the dumbest person you have ever met? Please post in the comments. We all need a good laugh!

New in the Shop: Halloween!

For a limited time, I have some nifty Hallowe'en offerings in my ShelHawk's Creations shop, and will be adding more in the coming week!

My more traditional orange jacks will have Raku-fired friends, and some jack-o'-lantern head ghosts, too! I'll be adding goblets, bowls, candy dishes and possibly some Halloween-themed Christmas ornaments, so keep an eye out in the coming week or so!
I'll leave them in the shop for a little bit before I tuck them away for my Halloween and Vine show, but I wanted to give you an opportunity to possess my wares!

The Smoker

"The Smoker," one of my favorite spooky stories from childhood. Click on the pic to hear it read by the master, Vincent Price.

Image found here, but I'm not sure who the artist is.

I will have pics and stories from Midsummer Scream very soon! I'm still recovering and getting the house put back in order; it looks like a bomb went off in my office!
