Firstly I would like to welcome my newest followers. It's wonderful having you here. Also a HUGE thank you to everyone of you lovely people who leave me a comment, I enjoy reading them all. You are all far to kind.
Today I have a new project I have been working on.......surprise surprise yes it is Halloween related. I can't believe how much fun I'm having creating all these pieces. If anyone had asked me a couple of years ago if I would be celebrating Halloween I would have laughed. Now....well there's just no stopping me. Christmas has always been my favourite time of year but now I can happily add Halloween too.
