New eBay auctions at 9:00pm tonight



















Here's what's new on eBay this week.
A couple of "green" witches and a grinning gourd candy container.

The winking witch has a hidden candy container inside her head, under her vintage treat bag styled party hat.

As for the remainder of the week... well, I'm trying to finish sculpting a new piece for EHAG's next upcoming challenge enititled "Halloween Carnival." I don't think I will have it done by August 15th, but I'm going to try anyway.

That's all for this week... Lori

The wait is over as of Wednesday, July 23rd























After months of feeling like I've accomplished nothing. I finally feel like I'm ready to start selling again.

I took pics yesterday and today, then spent countless hours editing because I take far too many being anal and all. LOL!

So... as of this coming Wednesday I will finally list something on eBay, what item(s) in particular... I don't know.

On August 13th, I will debut two or three items (not pictured here) on a fantastic new site called
Spooky Time Jingles. I am thrilled that Dani of Ambitions Design has allowed me to join her awesome roundup of amazing artists.

Look for an email from me on Tuesday or Wednesday with a sneak peek at what will be up for auction. (If you'd like to join my mailing list, please drop me a note.) Until then... I hope you have a great week! ~ Lori

p.s. don't forget to click on the pics to enlarge them.

Forty pieces and counting...







I'm sure by now you must all be getting sick of seeing the same darn thing, so I will apologize in advance. (I don't really feel sorry), I actually feel pretty darn good! I have been working on 40 pieces simultaneously and I'm finally making some serious progress. (Please don't bother counting because not all 40 are in the pics.)
Pic.1
Almost all pieces are ready for sale or auction, however some require wire handles. I am keeping the two black cat buckets on the far right, so they won't be for sale.
Pic 2.
All the "Simpleton's" are complete, with the exception of the piece in the front row, 2nd from left hand side.
Pic 3.
There are 4 small candy containers in need of handles and in the back row are 3 hot air balloon type pieces that still need more work... their paper inserts will be illuminated with an LED - battery operated tealight.
Pic 4.
The ornaments (2 witches, pumpkin/veggie guy and skelly with fez) are now done, but the 4 figures in the back row still require some tweaking.
That's all for this week... hope you are enjoying some great weather where you are! ~ Lori
