Meet Cedric the Skelly Party-er! He's all set to rattle and roll with his pumpkin pal! Cedric is 7 1/2" tall x 4" x 4". He will be available on ebay tonight at 8 pm central time. Also Bat Boy ends tonight at the same time :o) He's one of my favorites!! I really thought he would have a bid right away, anyone else ever do that? The ones you think you will first don't, the ones you don't think will, do?? LOL, it's always a mystery to me!
Cedric, might be the last one for ebay this week, I need to get the veggie people done this week too :o) Should have some pictures to show you all soon. And I'm still working on the National Halloween Convention pieces too!
We only got a tiny bit of snow over night and it all melted by noon so HURRAY!! Hope you are all having a beautiful hump day! xo Michele
Awhile back I entered the Steampunk Quarterly challenge on Art Dolls Only blog, and was so excited yesterday to learn that Sarah would be featured on their blog! You can visit Art Dolls Only blog here-http://artdollsonly.blogspot.com Thank you for featuring Sarah :o) I'm honored!
Yesterday I got a couple more things all sculpted out but I was so tired I just couldn't keep going. I just felt drained, both mentally and physically. That usually doesn't happen to me, I'm a workaholic as most of you that follow this blog know. Not sure what it was? But I finally stopped fighting it and just took the rest of the night off ;o) I've got a lot of things going right now that I'm excited about but maybe all that planning and designing just drained me. Hopefully I'll have a few things to show you in the coming days. There's a skelly bust coming up for ebay, plus some others for ebay, a few veggie people that I'm doing for a shop, I'm also working on pieces for the National Halloween Convention :o)
Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! More snow is on the way for us today and tonight. If I never see another snowflake at this point I would be happy! Remember Sam?
That's how I'm feeling LOL! Sam the skelly snowman is making his way over to Ebay tonight at 8 pm central time :o) Also Ghost Girl ends on there tonight ;o) xo Michele
Okay so when I started Skelly Bird (I can't help but think of Phoebe's smelly cat song every time I say skelly bird LOL) he was going to be a sweet blue bird....he had a mind of his own and took over! In no way did he want some cutesy bird house, he wanted a haunted bird house lol. So Skelly Bird was born ;o) The curly cue on top of his head is a part from a vintage pocket watch. I painted a couple of witches, a jol, a black cat and a skeleton in the windows of Skelly Birds haunted house.
He is 8" tall not counting the curly cue x 3 wide x 3 deep. He will be available on Ebay michelelynchdesigns on Monday at 8 pm central time. Also the conjoined twins will be on ebay tonight at 9 pm central time, and Freddy ends tonight at the same time!
We got about 5 to 6 inches of snow yesterday! I meant to take a picture of the trees in bloom with the snow on them, they were so pretty! But the sun came out first thing this morning and has melted the snow off of them. It never did stick to the streets really, they were just too warm still. Crazy spring weather! xo Michele
Meet Waylon & Daylon the conjoined pumpkin twins! Both are afraid of spiders an one has made a web on their belly and is crawling towards Daylon, the bad part is they are both trying to run in opposite directions! They are just shy of 5" tall x 5"wide x 3" deep, the belt buckle is a vintage find ;o) They will be available on my ebay page on Sunday at 9 pm central time. Ebay id is michelelynchdesigns, you can also find the link in the sidebar of my blog.
There's a skelly bird coming on Monday to ebay, I should have pictures up on the blog by Sunday :o)
I woke up to snow on the ground again! I really was hoping we were through with that! It didn't stick around long though, the rain that lasted the rest of the afternoon washed it away. Hope everyone has a great weekend! xo Michele
Meet the flying skelly guy ;o) I had some challenges creating this one, but in the end I think he worked out! He's 9 1/2" tall x 7" x 3". He has screws at his jaws, a vintage enameled watch face, tiny skelly charm, 2 swarovski crystal elements on his hat and a found metal curly thingy :o) I'm putting him in on ebay for Thursday night at 8 pm central time :o) He's a Halloween party-er if I ever saw one ;o)
I still have three more pieces that are sculpted and ready to paint ;o) I keep saying I'm going to take a day off and enjoy this weather, but I haven't! Today is the last day, before we dip back down to our normal 40-50's so I'm off to enjoy! xo Michele
When I said in the last post that I was off to get my hands in some clay, I wasn't kidding! I have 5 new pieces sculpted! I got this one painted and wanted to show him to you all :o) Lots of time went into painting him :o) I think he came out pretty cute! He's 8" x 7" x 3". There's stars on his back too
I'm putting him on Ebay Wednesday night at 6 pm central time. I've decided to get over my break up with ebay and sell some pieces on there again lol. My ebay id is michelelynchdesigns, there's also a link in the side bar of my blog ;o) Hopefully our love/hate affair will be better after our break up ;o)
More pieces coming this week ;o)
Hope everyone had a great weekend, we have had some really gorgeous weather here lately, in the 80's!! I hear we are dropping back into the 40's though :oP xo Michele
What it's not October? Are you sure?? It's chilly and wet outside again! I'm still in Halloween mode. Heck, maybe I'll stay for forever. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday! This witch can hang on your wall, or sit on a shelf. She's 7" tall x 4" wide x 2" deep. She will be available in my etsy shop, until next week. I'll put her on ebay then ;o) I've been moving some things around and listing on ebay again, you can find Elmer, It's Skelly Time and Is It Time Yet Pumpkin Head on ebay right now!
Hope everyone has a great weekend! I'm back to getting clay on my hands! xo Michele
This is a cabbit LOL! He's a cat/rabbit! Okay so it's actually a black cat with bunny ears on, but don't tell him you can tell he's not really a rabbit! His name is Marvin and Marvin uses his smile to pick up chicks. LOL okay I know it was corney, but I gotta amuse myself lol! Tonight is theSpooky Time Jingles update at Midnight and there are lots of goodies in store from the peeks I've seen! Be sure to check out all the fabulous artists on there! Marvin will be there, along with these fellows ;o) Did they turn out how you pictured them, after seeing only a peek of them in white?
Don't forget the Easter Hootenany is going on at Spooky Time Jingles this month too! My two er bunnies will be on my Christmas page. Hope everyone is have a fabulous weekend! We are having gorgeous weather here today! It's about time!! xo Michele
I can't believe it's been so long since I posted last! I've been hard at work in my studio, getting ready for Spooky Time Jingles update this weekend! So I thought I would give you all a peek at what I've been working on ;o) Lots of fun coming this time! There are cabbits (what's a cabbit you ask? Hmm...Ginny knows lol!) a witch, a bunny, and of course some skellys!
Hope everyone is having a creative and great week! xo Michele
Gotcha! This piece was inspired by how quickly time can sneak up on you! Remember that birthday of mine? LOL. I actually had him all sculpted before that, but didn't have him painted yet. It's taken me a while to get back into the groove of things this week!
Gotcha the grim reaper hangs on the wall. There is a hook already in his back for easy hanging. He is 8 1/2" tall x 3"wide x 2 1/2" deep. He has a vintage watch piece for his eye, screws in his jaw (reminds me of the snake bite piercings!) a gear that acts as the button to hold his robe together, and a vintage watch face, entire watch piece with it's tiny rubies intact, and a spinner. He is entirely hand sculpted out of paper clay over an armature. His hands are epoxy, He is hand painted and sealed. The title, date and my signature are on the back. He's available in my ETSY SHOP :o)
Hope everyone has a great Mardi Gras weekend! Can't decide if we're going to venture to downtown St. Louis or not tomorrow, it's a wild time for sure! Whatever you decide to do have a creative, fun, fantastic one! xo Michele
Meet Mr. and Mrs. Grim Reaper! I think they would be a really unique wedding cake topper! He is just shy of 5" tall and she is 4" tall. They are available in my etsy shop :o)
I survived the birthday weekend, but just barely! Had waaaay to much fun Saturday night and paid for it on Sunday! and of course I swore I would never do that again...until next time. lol. We went out to eat Sunday night for our birthdays at a Sushi restaurant here by our house and had a great time, sampling off of each others plates! Monday I gave my youngest a hall pass from school for his birthday and we spent the day together. He had that birthday money burning a hole in his pocket so of course we had to go to Game Stop and get the latest and greatest for the Xbox ;o) We had a really nice day together, I love spending time with my boys :o) Hope everyone has had a great weekend and start to their week! It's time for me to get back to reality and that means the little characters on my work table, and laundry! xo Michele
I'm like most artists, I've been creating something for as long as I can remember. I have explored many types of media and love experimenting with new things. Mixed media seems to be where my heart belongs. I can combine my love of painting, sculpting, adding found object all into one. The Steampunk Soul series evolved after I took a job with a corporation--the Soul Sucker. I hope you enjoy my artwork! xo Michele
