random number generator says

DO I have your attention?

Times Square NYC "Naked Cowboy"

Being that I used the random number generator to choose the winner, I also decided to add a random picture to show you a little bit of what can happen when you are in my world!

The Naked Cowboy is an entertainer who started as a local city guy who needed to make money. So he strapped on his tighty whities, cowboy hat, boots & guitar and stands in the center of Times Square strutting his stuff. He has become quite popular and I will never forget the 1st time I saw an almost naked man singing in the center of Times Square. His butt always reads "Naked Cowboy".
Nothing to do? Google images has some funny shots.

Your welcome ;)

~Now down to business~

We have a winner who made the #2 comment on my giveaway post and answered with their favorite song! Lisa of Studio Rose is our winner!!!

May you enjoy all the glittery goodies I send your way Lisa and I hope to get to see some pics of how you decide to use them!

XOXO'S ~Dani~

Loss for words.

Just this lil Devil left, NOT ANYMORE...He is now sold and I will miss him greatly! He is my Favorite! DO not ask me where the idea for a Cabaret Devil came from , I have NO clue!

Little Cabaret Devil Ornie

I just placed my next batch of ornaments on Flickr for people to see and they are all almost gone. I am thoroughly at a loss for words that don't sound old, repeated and expected. For me there are NO words to show just how grateful I am to each and every single one of you for helping me with my art through, tips, blogs, purchases and support. Being an artist IS NOT always easy but it is usually a blast and I would not change a thing.

Just one creepsters left ;(

I am soo touched I just had to share.

Some of you may have seen my farewell party video posted below to "Miss Kim" from Duluth, Georgia thanking her for giving 11 of my baby creepsters ornaments such a good home. Well I was near tears when she wrote to me today about their arrival.

My spooky Babies 005


Where do I start?! The bags with the name of the piece inside, the
ribbon with small trinkets attached along with the name card.....OH
love for you to make me three different witches and two more bats
that will add to this

Honestly Dani, I don't even know how to put into words how much I
appreciate your talent. Your God given gift is incredible. I know I
mentioned how I dislike how our world is so overly massed produced
but you need to put yourself out
there....move over Bethany Lowe!!!!!

Please let me know if your would be willing to make the additional
pieces I have requested.



Kim, you have touched me deeply not because you buy my art but because you connect with it as much as I do! You RAWK, Miss Kim!!!

Back to reality for me

These last few weeks have been exhilarating and exhausting with the birth of my new baby, SpookyTime Jingles. With this process came much neglect of my family duties,
as well as my volunteer work as a first responder for people in crisis from sexual assault & domestic abuse.

In the last 6 weeks I have been called on countless calls to respond as an advocate/counselor for victims and I just could not go. Fatigue, obligations, etc...

Anyway, my point to this is that Sexual Assault is a silent epidemic in this country and across the world. Domestic abuse is also somehow ignored or passed over as "well she or he could just leave". It is just not that simple.

Please watch this amazing 2 minute trailer of the Finding Angela Shelton Documentary. You may have seen her on Oprah, 48 hours, Larry King and countless other media outlets, as she is "The big mouth warrior" against abuse.

Angela Shelton is a survivor of childhood sexual assault by her father. She decided to see what would happen if she looked for other Angela Shelton's across the US to see what their lives are like. The results were stunning. Over 70% of the 60+ Angela Shelton's she interviewed had been victims of sexual or domestic abuse.

Talk to your children about touching and safety and raise your boys to value women. The more we talk about it, the harder it will be to sweep it under the rug.

The entire documentary DVD and her new book are available should you be so inclined.

1 in 6 will be sexually assaulted before they are 16 years old!
1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime.

OVER 70% are by a friend or relative of the family!!!


Here is a link to the full story about a mother and her 3 children and how they got away from their violent sexual abuser of a father. They have asylum in another country from the UNITED STATES!!! The mother is now sought by the FBI to be imprisoned for removing the children from their father who the last time he had them fractured the babies skull. You can help by signing a petition to let them come back to the US without being jailed.

If you or someone you know needs help contact RAINN for confidential help and guidance.

And the Devil-Drama Plot Thickens / Original post is below this one

OMG...OMG...OMG!!!!! This is almost too unbelievable for words. I cannot share all the message that started this nonsense (as I am not at liberty) but I have to share this part of it as I cannot stop myself. It is just too good to pass over.

My site, SpookyTime Jingles WAS accused of promoting Satanism as "it has the devil, A Skeleton and everything!!!!!!!!!!!! What?

I am just stunned stupid. What is this? I have "the devil and everything" on my site, SpookyTime Jingles???????????????

Did you know this? Because NOBODY told me that I have the devil on my site.
And what is everything? The snowman?...EEK NOT THE SNOWMAN...... otherwise known as Satan's henchman! Maybe the JOL of Jack Skellington from a CARTOON??? Somebody help me here...please anyone...someone...throw me bone, would ya?

Is this person a meth addict (I hear they can become delusional) or just mentally unstable? Both? I digress....

Yes, clearly with the name SpookyTime Jingles (sends shivers of terror throughout all the land) I am promoting the devil and evil doings. This person called it a Halloween site. Why, oh why do these crazy ass people insist on only choosing the word(s) that work for their agenda? Why not bring up the fact that we also sell CHRISTMAS art? I left the Christ in Christmas. I could have said Xmas. Ok, now I am blathering on but I just don't get these twisted people.

Now correct me if I am wrong but the last time I checked (think I learned this in oh KINDERGARTEN) the skeleton had nothing to do with anything evil but held two very important jobs, like holding the body up and protecting delicate organs of the body? Just a thought...

Yes, evil doing at its finest!

This is so comical. This poor person is clearly in her/his own very small shallow world. I actually feel kind of sorry for this person, as they have no idea how very foolish they are and how she/he could be using their energies to help others that really are in need vs. spreading BS propaganda throughout online communities.

Ok, in closing I would like to point out that in almost every horror movie plot with a homicidal maniac and every Serial Killer's history, was a bible thumping crazy ass fanatical parent who drove there children to absolute insanity. Who's the devil now?

Oh, and by the way...STILL *KISS MY ASS* Then go join the Taliban if you so strongly feel the need to be fanatical, I hear they are recruiting~

Below is my comment on Annette of Huckleberry Arts Blog. She was accused/questioned about being a satanist due to the fact that she creates Halloween art. I got the feeling that I may also be in question as to my combo of Halloween and Christmas art on SpookyTime Jingles.

First off let me say. KISS MY ASS. Period thee end.

~My comment to Annette~

The below words bring me much peace when people push their one sided, uneducated opinions onto others. Even if you have read it before, please read it again as we all need reminders at times ;)

This version was found written on the wall in Mother Teresa's home for children in Calcutta:

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

-this version is credited to Mother Teresa


I am sorry you had to be accused of such nonsense. Someone's opinion or belief system is not what bothers me, even if it differs from mine. What bothers me is when they try and push their beliefs on others who think differently than them...HOW VERY HITLER of them.

I believe that by celebrating on Halloween and keeping it theatrical and fun for families, it takes away any of the BS that MAY or MAY NOT have been practiced by the Druids centuries ago.

News Flash...customs change! Even for the better sometimes, even after CENTURIES! OMG hard to believe I know!!
But we did abolish the horrid custom of slavery. So maybe just maybe good things can happen where evil once stood.

This is 2008 and we should all be well rounded, well educated people(besides just the teachings we choose to learn).

Last time I checked I could love my God and a Jack O' Lantern at the same time and not be condemned to Hell.

Annette, it is between you and your God. You and your husband are raising lovely wonderful children who are so very lucky to have such well rounded, thoughtful and creative parents. God Bless~
