A challenge and a giveaway!

Your doll is shipped, right?   
You have all this good zombie creating energy coursing through your veins!  Right?
NOW what do you do?  Well, I've been thinking about that and came up with an idea.  

Each year I fall in love with what I give away and then want my own!  So with that in mind,  I'm hosting a challenge!

Starting NOW, create yourself something inspired by the swap.   Maybe you want a zombie doll you saw someone else get....so try to make one for yourself!  Or maybe you want a zombie apron. Or maybe you want to creat a zombie doll identical to the one you just shipped off.  Afterall, we love them.  I can't tell you how many times people say, "It was so hard to send this one off."

Make it (whatever it is!) and post it here by October 4th.  Everyone who posts something they made for the challenge will have their name put in a giveaway.

I'll put all the names in a witches hat and draw out a winner!  Then I'll stuff a box full of goodies and ship it off the next week!

The Beginning of a Zombie


My partner also was pretty specific/unique in her zombie needs so this is all I can show you right now :0) I can tell you that I am having lots of fun with this swap.

Sorry I am so late in posting this sneak peek! I was accepted into the largest juried craft fair in our area and I have been super busy creating fun things to sell there. I am so glad I joined in on the fun here - Zombies are the best things to sculpt!!

It's DEAAAAD!

The zombification is complete......so here is just a teeny peek!
