Over The Moon!



When I first met my husband
in 1988,
I was welcomed to a family that
loved
Halloween.

A visit to a nearby
Haunted House 
that raised money for the town's
volunteer Fire Department,
sparked my husband and his brothers.
What a fun way to raise money 
for the Fire Department 
in their own small town!



The years passed. 
My husband and I separated,
but I remained a part of 
the Halloween fund raiser, 
until my caregiver duties demanded that I leave.

As I took the journey 
to create primitives,
Halloween was a strong love~
and a natural subject.


This past January,
 I decided that I wanted a stronger 
art presence 
and focus
in 
this world 
and passion of mine.

It has truly 
been a place that 
my heart lives.
And so.....


it is truly my honor,
to share that I will
be joining 
the most amazing Halloween Artists.
(by then my pinch marks should be healed)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ghoultide Gathering 
now has different wings to guide it,
but the same faces remain.
It will be under a new name as well~
The Bewitching Peddlers of Halloween.

Mark your calendars
for
the 30th of September 2017
at the
Chelsea Michigan
Fairgrounds!
I look forward to meeting everyone!

A special thank you to my beloved, Tim.
My daughter's Bailey and Jess
as well as 
my family and friends 
for being such wonderful supporters 
as well as secret keepers.
It is with many
that dreams can come true.
I am soooo
over the moon!
