- Happy Columbus Day. Although personally, aside from a generous day off for those of you in school, I don’t really care two kumquats about.
I have actually been farrrrr more busy in the art world these last several weeks than my profile is able to vouch for —Well, unless you happen to follow me around on Facebook or my Twitter @ ViciousVisions
where I’ve been posting my recent endeavors only to end up too lazy in the evening to post them here. Fine! Okay, okay, I’m a procrastinator! I know it! Forgive me! _(´□` ∠):_
I haven’t updated my journal since my surgery in July that unfortunately made me unable to participate in the ‘Access The Arts’ exhibit at the county fair. I didn’t even go to the fair at all (A first in a long time) and my 4th of July was relegated to *just*
being able to see the city fireworks display over the tree line from my house and although my recovery period had me beginning 2 weeks later than I had for last year’s ‘Homemade Halloween’ season, I have been submersed in paper mache seasonal projects for my favorite holiday for the better of a month now. So now then...
I witch you a Happy Hallowe’en!
Anyone who truly knows me ought to know by now that I am a 100% bonafide Halloween junkie. Not only am I a year-round collector of vintage and vintage-inspired Halloween, but for seven years now I have made my ‘Homemade Halloween’
brand paper mache ornaments and decor to order. First for personal friends and family only and then now for my second year on Ebay. My last batch is up right now with two days left to go and already this second season has been more of a success than the first. I’m truly impressed! I really am. I’m not done though. I’m done with the Halloween side of things, yes, but I’ve decided that I am going to test the waters with a small batch of Christmas themed ornaments. I had been asked about this last year but I passed on it because ...well let’s be honest. The Christmas ornament market is overly saturated. It really is the #1 thing people think of when it comes to decor like this. It’s hard to stand out and be original in such a heap of options. But then again, that said, a million ornaments to chose from there may be, but none of those are a Vicious Visions ornament.
Anyway we’ll see how it goes. If it is successful then maybe I’ll reconsider my opinion and make this a annual thing, otherwise a few lucky people who do like and buy them will become the proud owners of the only Christmas ornaments made by yours truly. That said, Onto the paper mache! Got a whooooooole smorgasbord of my work in progress, some different stages of completion going up very shortly so be on the look out those.~Shinju
