Countdown to Halloween begins this Wednesday!


Believe it or not, October 1st is but a few short days away. I can hardly believe it myself. I'm mostly prepared for the Countdown to Halloween this year, but I still have a few things I need to wrap up before then. Time to get a move on.

I decided that today I would go ahead & decorate the blog for Halloween, as well as post my schedule for the month. 

Every Monday, Wednesday & Friday is More Halloween Ideals!
Remember back in 2012 when I had the Halloween Ideals posts? Well, there's more of that. In 2012, most of the images I shared were from the 1960's. This time around it's the 1950's & the 1970's. I have a few issues missing from the early 50's, due to the fact that I was unable to acquire them. And I think that there may not have been a fall issue one of those years. But nevertheless, there will be an avalanche of fantastic vintage imagery posted here three times a week!! My posts from 2012 are pretty popular on the Pintrest!

Every Tuesday & Thursday it's NEW Halloween Art from me!
Yep! That's NINE whole days, with new art made by yours truly. I actually have 5 of these finished & ready to post. The other 4 are mostly done, I just have some final touches & backgrounds to add.

That's Great, Now What About the Weekends?!
I was trying to come up with some theme for the weekend days, but I decided to keep those open, with the option to not post if I'm not feeling it. So Saturday & Sunday will be very random posts, maybe no post at all. 

So that's it, in a pumpkin shell. Hope that you'll stop by and check out the goods this year!!

September half over, Countdown to Halloween coming up fast!!


It won't be long now. October first is right around the corner. And I'm pleased to let you all know (if you don't already) that the Countdown to Halloween hub has been updated with info & badges for this year's countdown! If you are interested in participating, check out the site for more details. This is the 60th anniversary of 'The Creature from the Black Lagoon', so the badges for this year are Gill Man themed. I picked Shawn Robare's art for my badge this year:

I'm super busy right now preparing art for the countdown, an art show at ZaPow and the upcoming issue of Little Shoppe of Horrors. I'll be back at the end of September to decorate my blog for Halloween, and give you an outline of what to look forward to.

See you soon......
