July is always an interesting month.
I’ve been working on a lot of custom orders for stores.
Just finished up some fun subway art products for a great little shop called The Red Stable in the German Village section of downtown Columbus
But I always feel like “it’s summer! I should chill!”
In reality, however, July and August have to be the staging ground for all things fall.
Year after year I find this hard to get my head around – particularly when it’s over 100 degrees outside.
But facts are facts so won’t you join me in getting ready for Halloween,,,,, in July.
It’s a huge, two-day show at the convention center and a great motivator for getting my act together.
I’m trying to come up with some new stuff (ideas have been percolating for a year so, by all means, wait until two weeks before the show David…sigh….)
They are currently on Etsy as a set of six but I’m thinking of changing them to my more standard set of four. But which four?! It’s always hard to choose.
And my Dollar Store Glowing Eye Candle Holders (click the link for a tutorial) were a hit last year so I plan to make more
But I don’t want to offer exactly the same thing so I’m looking for ways to change them up a bit
WARNING: EVIL CLOWNS AHEAD
But my jury is a bit out actually.
The product works great I’m just not sure it’s quite what I’m going for.
I was also thinking about wrapping the top in some sort of funereal black ribbon or cloth.
What do you think?
All I know for sure is that I really need to crank the AC cause there is nothing Halloweeny about sweating……unless you’re wearing a Wookie costume I guess……
