6:48 pm - New Art Pendants!

I'm so excited about these! The pendant settings were custom cut using my own design, so they're exclusive to my shop and you won't find them anywhere else! :D

3:15 pm - eBay & Figurine Sale, ACEOs, & Upcoming Appearances!

It's time to do a little spring cleaning around here, so I'll be running an eBay sale, throwing some ACEOs on auction, and getting this year's show schedule in order!

eBay & Figurine sale

I am running an eBay sale through May 1st! Everything in the store is 25% off, so if you've had you eye on a larger print, an art cameo, or you've ever wanted to collect the entire Morbidly Adorable Oz set, this would be a good time:)


Speaking of sales, I noticed that Gorey Details has some really great prices on some of my figurines -- $9-12!! I love their stuff! You should check them out!



I'm going to try and post weekly ACEO auctions for the next couple of months! I'll try to keep them running until show season starts, but then it's anybody's guess as to how consistent they'll be! LOL I always get pretty bogged down around summer!

"Calico Cuties" 2.5"x3.5" Canvas ACEO Print
"Creature of Guitar" 2.5"x3.5" Canvas ACEO Print
"La Muerte Llameante" 2.5"x3.5" Canvas ACEO Print
"Wedding Couple" 2.5"x3.5" Canvas ACEO Print

CLICK HERE -- to see all available ACEOs!

Upcoming Appearances 2010!

I will try my best to mention each show or appearance as they get closer! I wish I was able to do more out-of-state shows this year, but I have far too much work to do to make it happen. Comic Con is the only show I'll be able to attend outside of Idaho. I was going to scale back on my local shows even, but I just felt I should grab every show within reach! It's good to get out of the house once in awhile!

Where in the world is Morbidly Adorable Misty? -- CLICK HERE for the full list!Collapse )

Positive ending to a rough week!

Even though the beginning of the week was rough, it has ended with some good news from a company whose products I love. If everything pans out right, I should have some new stuff to show off in a couple of weeks! It's always fun to witness the seeds that I planted start to sprout!!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

1:20 pm - 6 NEW ORIGINAL PAINTINGS -- Big Eye Girls with CANDY!!


I have 6 NEW ORIGINAL PAINTINGS listed on eBay! They are all candy-themed! 5 of them are painted directly on decorative wood pieces while the sixth is painted on a gallery wrapped canvas. All are ready to hang! I have a LOVE LOVE LOVE relationship with candy! I could eat it all of the time, but if I did that, I would HATE HATE HATE myself! LOL So I decided to paint some candy-themed paintings that show how I feel about it ranging from a sweet angel with a treat to a candy corn that likes to eat people! Ha ha!



"Divine Delivery" - 8x10 ORIGINAL PAINTING
"The Candy Shop" - 12x12 ORIGINAL PAINTING
"Candy Corn Food Chain" - 8x10 ORIGINAL PAINTING
"The Banana Bandit" - 8x10 ORIGINAL PAINTING
"The Great Escape" - 6x8 ORIGINAL PAINTING
"Oh Great Gummy" - 8x10 ORIGINAL PAINTING

I hope this kooky group of girls won't put you into sugar shock!!

3:39 pm - Max's Dandelion Daydream & New ACEOs

Here is a new commission I just completed for a wonderful person, MaryAnne! I really thank her for sharing her love of her iguana Max (who is no longer with us) and continuing to educate people about iguanas in general! In his honor, I want everyone to meet Max, the skelly iguana! He has such a beautiful light!

"Max's Dandelion Daydream" -- 8"x10 Acrylic on Canvas

Meet Max! He is a skelly iguana that quite frankly doesn't know he's an iguana! He is family! Here he is after finding a patch of his favorite flowers -- dandelions! He is always up for a good cuddle and has a smile for everyone. Have you hugged your iguana today?

8x10 PRINT

I also threw in a few ACEOs! They end this Monday night:)

Have a great weekend everyone!!!!

2:38 pm - Tarot - THE PRIESTESS, Temeperance Sneak Peak, & Mardi Gras ACEOS

Here is the "Priestess" from The Morbidly Adorable Tarot! I finally had a chance to get her uploaded and all of that. She was the last of the cards from 2009! From here on out, the cards will all reflect 2010:)

THE PRIESTESS - from the Morbidly Adorable Tarot

Meet the Faery Priestess of Skullcoco. She has Rococo sensibilities with a skull flair. Dressed lavishly in her silvery garb, she perches on her pomegranate-colored couch divining the mysteries. The pomegranate color is a reminder of the fruit that allowed Persephone of Greek mythology to travel between two worlds -- the living and the dead, earth and the underworld. The Priestess sits between her two cats that represent the two pillars in tarot -- light and dark, life and afterlife. Cats are creatures generally associated with magic and mystery. The skelly cat sits atop the Priestess' book of knowledge while the crescent moon next to the black cat illuminates the mysteries. The Priestess' trance-like gaze is searching for knowledge as she decides how much and what she will reveal to the querent.

THE PRIESTESS - 8.5x11 Print
THE PRIESTESS - 13x19 Print

WORK IN PROGRESS - Sneak Preview of Temperance...Collapse )

I also threw in some Mardi Gras-themed ACEOs with the current batch of Valentine ones!Collapse )

That's the news from here! I hope everyone had a Happy Imbolc and Happy Groundhog's Day! SPOLIER ALERT: It looks like it's going to be a short winter! (Sorry if that spoiled it for anyone! I hope I didn't ruin it for anyone that had to record it so they could watch it later! LOL) I did watch Groundhog's Day with Bill Murray over the weekend! I LOVE that show:)
