LeeAnn Made the Design Team!!!

LeeAnn Made the Design Team!!!

Hi everyone, I am happy and thrilled that I have been asked to be on the Creative Paperclay Design Team!! (This is the type of clay I use.) I also won their link up party with my sweet Charming Charlie Ghost. What does this mean? I will be posting one tip and one tutorial a month on their site (and a few other partnering sites - Michaels, Joanns and Hobby Lobby) for a period of six months. I will have my profile pic and my bio on their paperclay blog site too. Plus, I will be working alongside some incredible artists! Really excited for that! Go visit to read more about it! Sign up to follow the site and we will create together! For those of you who supported me in this endeavor ... I can't thank you enough!! You know I love you all!

Big Leap for Giggleswick!

Coming Soon
Under Construction

A website dedicated to the Art Community, where as users can interact through our forums, get in touch with news from the art community, view tutorials, read articles, shop in the marketplace, and join in on the fun by participating in events and challenges.

Well everyone… that’s my big news!  When we say ArtCommunity, we mean that it is a site that Artists and Collectors will be able to participate  and interact with each other in a setting conducive to creating, inspiring, sharing and mentoring to Halloween Artists at all levels.  There will be topics from the beginner level up through professional level artist, geared towards personal and artistic growth.

We also will be there to showcase the Artist’s work to the collectors and enthusiasts along with interesting profiles and the latest news of their favorite artists!

So hang on Friends…we are off on an Adventure together!

As  Always,

Love and Friendship,

Carly Anne

Spirits in Sanford Show!!!

The Spirits Have Spoken! 

The Great Pumpkin inspecting booths before the show!

The Spirits in Sanford show was a class act indeed! Our preview party was catered and the room was great to set the mood...exciting to see everyone setting up! Came home with lots of loot...There was only one camera malfunctioned in the beginning of the show and we didn't notice I have no pictures of my own booth or Jorge's booth!!!  Not to worry, I will borrow some and post as soon as I get them!

Debb George's booth was loaded with goodies...I seriously could not make my pick for the longest time!  Decisions, Decisions!  

Debb George and her son Brennan...also our Bouncer...look at those muscles!

My Selection of Debs Goodies!

My favorite Debb George piece...Doesn't this sweet little witch look in love with her one and only white pumpkin?! Talented artist, that Debb George and a good friend!

These two Sister Witches are also from Debb George. The one on above is supposed to be me, trying on my innocent face...NOT!  The witch below is  my dear, sweet friend, LeeAnn Kress.  As usual her eyes are wide open in shock of something I said!!!

Robert Brawley...such a clown!!! LOL!

Roberts booth was full of eye candy!  Below is an Owl on a pumpkin by Robert Brawley. It is so precious and such a wonderful piece. His artwork is adorable and well executed, a fine artist an such a nice man! Enjoyed getting to meet him and he had dinner with us on Saturday night.

Of course I had to spend time with my dear friend, Marguerite Nochese!  It was so good to see her and her amazing Art Dolls!  

Chunky me with the beautiful Margo!

Below, this young little witch is waving goodbye to all her little witchey friends for the season...her sweet lower lip is sucked in as if she is about to cry...just want to hug on her and kiss her little cheek!!!  Marguerite created her and I had to have her!!! Amazing attention to detail An awesome artist!


Last but NEVER least is the wonder Artist, Jorge De Rojas!!! 

Jorge, borrowed one of your pics

"George" gave me an exquisite Black Cat Lantern. the light shows through his mouth and eyes...irresistible piece. So talented and such a sweet and caring person! Was next to him at the show! Enjoyed every minute with him and admiring his artwork!

Well that's all for this post!  I'm going to have to run around and collect more photos of  the show to upset about my camera malfunction!!!

As Always, Love and Friendship,
