I am alive!!

So, for those wondering where I have been hiding.... I have been in bed! I contracted some sort of very scary virus that settled in my throat. It created lesions, affected my breathing and really ability to function. So, doctor's visits every other day (I did not want the hospital) & I was holed up in our guest room with a laptop (greatest invention ever) and trying to take care of STJ business, in between sleeping.

Spookster Theatre

The day that I started to really realize that it wasn't a cold but something more sinister (very dramatic, eh?) Was the day I found out was accepted into the National Halloween & Haunters Convention this April in the Philly region!! This is a huge opportunity for all of the artist's associated with SpookyTime Jingles and I am very excited, although slightly unnerved at the worked ahead of me. eek!!

Luckily, STJ has THEE BEST group of artists who pitch in with ideas & help and truly make all the difference to whether this was to come to fruition or not.

This convention is a marvel of props for the professional haunter to the home haunter as well as the newly added collectibles for Halloween fans. The owners of this convention decided to add a collectibles section after receiving much call for it. Our booth #1115 will be stationed near the Halloween antiquities. A great fit if you ask me~

The Spookster Theatre - Large!

Yesterday was the first day in a week that I could get out of bed and eat. And when I did, I soon after hit my studio!! My lil banged up studio was like heaven on earth and I will never again complain about the lack of space or storage! I created non-stop until 3 am (from noon). I couldn't help myself. It felt so good to be back in the drivers seat again, albeit much slower than my usual.
So, the pictures you see of my recent creations are from my recent, til 3 am efforts. Hope you enjoy~

Hugs, Dani~
