New Idea's and Adventures!

"Getting Ready for Ghoultide Gathering"
Have you ever had something in your life that you constantly questioned whether you're talented enough to even be a part of...well that's me in a nutshell when it comes to "Ghoultide Gathering".  This is the time of year that I begin to stress and pinch myself into reality....YES I'm a vendor at one of the "coolest" shows in the United States, "Ghoultide Gathering"!  This will be my 5th year being a part of this incredible group of artists and each year I feel the pressure to be better than the past years and that means new ideas and characters.  

Many of the pieces that I create for this show are never even seen on the internet and most of my followers don't even know that "Soft in the Head" does this level of work.  This is "my time" to get my creative mojo cranking and let my "freaky flag fly".  I LOVE IT!!!!

I will always have a certain style and stay within that realm cause it's just who I am but I love pushing it further and further each time.  My first love has been and always will be working with fabric and all the textures it offers, wool being my favorite....hence the name of my business "Soft in the Head".  Even when clay is used my character will have a soft head.  

Halloween, being my all time favorite theme to work with,  constantly opens doors to expanding my imagination and giving me the ability to try and discover new techniques and looks for my characters.  This year my round-headed "skellies" and "pumpkin
people" will be the new addition to my inventory at Ghoultide along with a new witch and some old time cats.  Each year I surprise my followers with a new design that they just didn't see coming and this year will be the same.....I'm so excited by some of the odd pieces I have to work with that I can't wait to get started.   I truly hope that many of you can make the trip to this amazing event.  If Halloween is something you love and collect then "Ghoultide Gathering" is the place for you....I know I always go home with a new treasure to add to my collection....

This is spooky. We are of a like mind, apparently. Earlier this morning, I made a round muslin head and stuffed it. I then decided to make it into a pumpkin head doll. Then I went to your blog and found the same type of doll that I hope to make. Stay tuned. I may need your help. Connie Hindmarsh

I am such a fan of your work!
I am loving those skellies! Brilliant work! One day I hope to own one of your wonderful creations.
Not that you need it, but best of luck at Ghoultide. I'm sure you'll sell out almost instantly.
