Just in time for spooky stuff!

Here is a sample of the RockCandy Studios new Haunted House Kit.

I had so much fun making this! The kit includes assorted double-sided papers, Dresden foil borders, witches and spiderwebs, a sheet of collage images, hand-dyed tags, tiny glass bottles, an antique pen nib, tickets, bottle caps, Cuttlebugged cardstock "shingles" plus a great little wooden house to hold it all. You even get walnut ink crystals to stain the house base and step-by-step instructions. The size is approximately 9 3/4" X 9 3/4" X 1 3/4".

The only tools I used besides what is in the kit were a sponge brush, yellow, orange, brown and black dye ink pads, a 1" circle punch, liquid adhesive, pop dots and a Krylon leafing pen.

These will be on the website Monday, September 28, at, and the price is $16.

Go hug someone you love!

Blog Update (Y'all know I try to update at least once a quarter, whether I have anything to say or not.)

It's 4:55 a.m. I've been awake since 2:30 and didn't go to bed until 1 or so. My internal clock is really screwed up. Fortunately, Larry's is as well. He's in the living room, plunking on the guitar and watching an old western.

I spent most of yesterday trying to figure out what projects I had due (after a week of aches and fever) and whether I needed to make a trip to the big city to buy any supplies. I think I just about thought myself to death. I'm trying to think and plan before I alter, cut, paint or ink anything, which is a very different style from my usual fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants art.

I will post a project I finished in the wee hours this morning after running it by my friend and business partner, Roxi Phillips. It's a great project, just in time for Halloween. This will be available from RockCandy Studios in the next week or so, so be sure to check us out at If you aren't on our newsletter mailing list, send us a no…
