I am a Halloween geek and do Halloween art myself. I just got done watching your tutorial on the Apothecary stuff. I honestly have never seen anyone as talented as you are. I was so overwhelmed at all the new techniques I can now do. Where in the world did you ever get such an imagination. You are truly blessed. All I kept saying is why didn't you think of that. I thought I had an imagination. OMG! Can't wait to see more. Thank you.

Love all your artwork! Beautiful and magical creations. Thank you so much for mentioning my website and radio station. Just a heads up- Welcome to Weirdsville Radio has transformed from all comedy to an all purpose Halloween station. All the great novelty songs are still there, but now there's also a spooky side to the music as well.

Happy hauntings!
