Halloween is Coming

Fall is fast approaching, and quite frankly, I'm ready.  At least I'm ready to put this horrendous heat we've been stuck in behind me. 

I actually love fall.  I love the cool, crisp mornings that give way to warm, sunshiny afternoons.  I love how beautiful the trees become.  I love knowing Halloween is just around the corner.

In my studio in the last few weeks, I've been preparing for this upcoming season, making adorable Halloween characters.  The popularity of Halloween has surged in the last several years, and that makes me happy.  I enjoy making Halloween pieces.  There are so many different characters you can do!  One of my favorites is witches.  Here are a couple new ones I've just finished:

This is Ginger.  She is a chubby little thing, because she LOVES her Halloween candy!  She is wearing a cute little orange and white striped bodysuit under a black dress with a lace skirt.  Her collar is made from crepe paper and her tall witch hat is made from paper covered in black velvet.  I love the joyful expression on her face, but my favorite thing about her is her wild orange hair!

And this is Dottie, Ginger's cousin.  She's wearing a fun orange bodysuit with white polka dots and she has pretty little gems on her shoes.  Her pleated skirt, cape and hat are all made from black mini-dotted paper.  She's got a fluffy white crepe paper collar and a zig-zaggy stitched ribbon belt.  I love her sweet little face!  Her hair is not quite as wild, and a lovely blond. 

So which witch is your favorite?

These two darling girls will be appearing soon in my etsy shop.  You can go there now and find lots of other adorable Halloween characters.

Thanks for dropping by!
