Haunted House = B-U-S-T!!!!

Boo hoo!! Here is the deal - it was really taking a lot of effort! Not that I mind giving the effort, because I don't - it's just that I should do one for "me" before I try to bust out with some "awesome something" for somebody else!! It was actually going to be for my sweet and sinister partner - not Rachel. The reason I said "this is for you Rachel" is because she wanted me to show some pictures.

Well, since it didn't quite work out for me with the haunted house - which I will pursue later "for me" - I had to whip out something else! Now, I was already behind as it was - so the pressure was definitely present. Let me just say that this is something that I told you guys I was interested in doing - this situation just lent me the reason to just do it! Now, mind you - this had to be something Black - white - And orange. It was very hard for me to stay within this color range - but I did. And I love how this turned out! Okay, are you ready?? Seriously - this is going to be cute!

Here it comes . . . .






ahhhhh - So, what are you thinking?? Lovin' it{?} - hatin' it{?} - tell me!!! The suspense is killing me!

Yes, these are 5 x 5's. I am going to offer this size on the site. Bad thing is I can't really find the size as cheap as I wanted to - so, I'm going to sell this size for 20 smacks for each individual letter. Now, I will give a discount when you buy more than one - I've just got to work out those details.
I know that Halloween isn't everybody's holiday - but you guys have to tell me what you think?? I'm probably going to bust on myself and tell my partner to check out this post. I just can't wait - I have to tell her - that is why I'm NO GOOD at Christmas!! Or birthdays for that matter!! If it is from me - you are going to either get it early OR I'm just going to come out and tell ya'!! Sorry, just not a secret keeper when it comes to gifts!
I really like painting this size - ALOT! It is one of those instant gratification things - I think? I just start painting - and "poof" - there it is - the end result!
Look at that "baby" spider! If spiders looked like that, I wouldn't smoosh them! I actually hand stitched some shiny ribbon for his legs! And in between each orange dot is a tiny dot of orange glitter {Have I ever told you guys how much I love glitter?} This spider was my husband's fav-O-rite!
So, there you have it - different designs - different fonts - but it all matches just as well! Tell me - is this size good OR bad?? I thought they would be great for the small, neglected walls or sitting on a shelf or nook?!

BTW - Arsty Mama is opening up another sweet and sinister swap - so, if any of you are interested, contact her.

Comments please . . .

Kim,

You did a great job! I can tell you are pleased as punch too. $20 is very reasonable considering all the work and detail that went into each square. And 5x5 is a great size.

Halloween is never complete without a little glitter ; )
