Hidden Treasures...

Hello Lovelies!

Busy times here as usual in the Mill! First, a reminder, that I am hosting a 100th Post Giveaway that runs until August 9th. Only a week left to win an original matted vampire scratchboard piece. $40 value and perfect for the upcoming Halloween season!


I have listed some brand new very cunning jewelry at the shop. The Harlequin Mask Locket Series features little ladies inside little lockets. Each one is different, more to come!


I have also listed Zom-B-Vex Mini Print Sets. These little prints measure 2 1/2" x 5" and it gives you a chance to collect 'em all without paying so much. For deadly darkness at your doorstep, get a set of Zom-B-Vex minis!

Okay, enough business talk. I have found some wonderful artists I want to share with you! Nishant Choksi's work is reminiscent of the cartoons in Playboy in the 60's mixed with a modern sense of humor. I love all of these bright illustrations, just look at 'em!


Most of us who grew up or had kids in the 80's remember the game Mouse Trap. I owned it, and found that it was more fun to just set it up and run the ball through it, than it was to actually play the game. (In fact, I don't even remember how it was played.) Regardless, someone at Maker Faire last year (yes, I'm a bit late here with this), created a life-sized version of the game. Look at that picture, it's mind-blowing really. Wow. To be there to see it work must be amazing.


And lastly, while we're on a funny/quirky kick here, Nadine Boughton's collage series, aptly entitled True Adventures in Better Homes and The Pleasures of Modern Living are both blowing my mind and making me laugh hysterically. There is nothing better in my mind than seamlessly executed and truly creative collage work, and this is a shining example of both.


Until next time: unpleasant dreams...
