The days are getting shorter, the leaves are turning and there's a chill in the air. It's Fall! And that means it's time for the The Claremont Village Venture. Chicken Lips will be there with all new Halloween creations! Some sweet and some spooky!
If you are in the Southern California area, The Claremont Village Venture, is a wonderful way to welcome in the Fall. The tree-lined streets of historic Claremont are turned into an amazing arts and crafts festival with over 450 artists. And with LOTS of tempting food treats AND free admission, it's a wonderful way to spend the day.
Stop by and see me - Booth #275. But be sure to get there early for the best selection! Many collectors are there even before the show officially opens at 9am. In fact, last year I was selling merchandise AS I was setting it up for display!
I hope to see you there!

My latest piece - "Kitty in the Box" - sold in record time (thanks Wendy)! This "Pumpkin in the Box" is available in my ETSY shop and will most likely be the last Halloween piece that I will be offering for this season.
The Village Venture is next weekend, and I'm just finishing up my latest creations. I hope to get some photos uploaded of all my new spooky Halloween goodies (soon, I hope!).

Honestly, I feel like time is slipping through my fingers! I can't seem to get everything done that needs to be done for my upcoming shows, much less find time to keep up with my blog. I do apologize for the lack of posts and promise I will rectify that soon! I've got LOTS of new creations that I'm anxious to share with you!
In the meantime, be sure to pop into SpookyTime Jingles tonight at midnight for the lastest update. I've got some new Halloween and Christmas creations (like this festive Halloween Kitty). And, I understand that this month's surprise Guest Artist is absolutely amazing! I don't know who it is myself...we'll all have to stop in tonight and find out together.

Okay, maybe "frightful" is not the right word, after all, it is still 90˚ - although that is pretty frightful if you are a snowman! And that's just what I've been up to...making snowmen - and lots of them! I just finished putting a coat of Gesso on 11 new snowmen creations. Big ones, small ones, short ones and tall ones!
I love making these frosty fellows, they have lots of personality and just seem to really embody the holiday spirit. These newest creations will be available at my upcoming shows. Check my web site to find the dates of a show near you!
