Halloween Designs

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  It’s so fun to think up scary and creepy things to bedeck my house with.  I have such fun with it!  Here are some of the sign designs I’m working on or already have completed: The Mr. and Mrs. Skeleton set glows in the dark, but is really at it’s best under a black light. They each measure 7″ x 8″ The Batty Welcome also glows in the dark, but is very bright … Read more

This sign is 12″x 12″ and … Read more
