Welcome! Artfully Musing is a blog dedicated to sharing art and the techniques and products used. I'll be showcasing collage, altered and mixed media art as well as miniature. I hope you'll check back often and are inspired. Thanks for visiting! Laura

NOTICE: AlphaStamps has moved to a new website. Unfortunately, I was not aware the product links in my blog posts would not forward to the products on the new website. This has affected both the links in the posts and my Collage Sheet & Digital Image Set Catalogs. I ask for your patience while I work to fix the links. I’ll be fixing the newest posts first working back in time. Lastly, I’ll fix the catalogs. In the meantime, if you encounter broken links and need to finding something you can either use the name of the product to search the new AlphaStamps.net site or you can email me using the “Email Me” button at the top of the left column of the blog and I will do what I can to help.

As you can see from the pictures Karen has been a busy bee creating her Halloween Village.  There are just so many wonderful details to take in.  Notice the little card of pumpkins in front of the Black Cat Emporium on the right.
Below you see the front of the Black Cat Emporium.  I love the path going up to the front door.
The inside of the Emporium is just loaded with cool stuff.  Checkout the crystal ball on the floor stand to the right.  I love seeing how everyone is integrating neat things from their personal stash.
Below is the front of Ghoul & Sons.  The skeletons frolicking in the window crack me up!
Below is the inside of Ghoul & Sons.  Karen has used a hinged coffin for a table and it’s loaded with gruesome items.  
Below is the front of the Thrifty Witch.  Notice a cute chair in front for tired customers to sit in and the basket of pumpkins by the window.
On the inside Karen has use a plant stand to display some of the items.  And just like the Emporium this store is packed with all kinds of cool things.
To see more pictures of Karen’s Village and her other Halloween projects, hop over to her blog KarensDollsandStuff.blogspot.com.
