The Big 4*0*0 GIVEAWAY and some b*0*0!



My four hundredth post.. read to the bottom, there's a giveaway! I'd like to introduce you to two of my friends.. first the spooky, because I have had so much fun with these scary images!!

Please meet my newest art piece, Little Miss Muffet. Isn't she so darling? Better beware though, she has wicked things around her... she is here to wish you all a Happy All Hallows Eve!
(little miss is below, not to the left.. she... is much too pretty!)





Little Miss Muffet 10.30.08

OK, I'll post the pretty things now. :) I truly enjoyed the Haunting this year, it was so much fun!

On to the good stuff!! I have been working very hard on a new project! An antique paper doll reproduction from 1894. Her name is Sweet Abigail, (yes, it really is her name, I didn't give it to her) and I am almost done!! Please don't loose your head in excitement, I will be giving away one set here on my blog as a big Thank You to everyone who passes my way. Your comments and thoughts (good or bad) help me through my days.




Abigail comes with four outfits and four hats, and is just fabulous in her Victorian-ness! As soon as I finish her up, hopefully this weekend, I'll post some pictures of the loot for you! Sweet Abigail will also be available to purchase as a very limited run for Christmas. Just leave a comment here, on this post over the next week or two and PLEASE spread the word!


Thank you!
xoxo~
Abbie
