Number of unique visitors: 1958
Number of sales: 20
Amount collected for Bat Conservation International (not including $ from artists' sales): $800.00
Number of happy bats: priceless!!!!
There are many additional side-effects that are not measurable, like how many people now know about bats and their plight. So I think all the artists deserve to take a bow and bask in a swelling round of applause! And I thank each and every one of you, artists and trick or treaters, for supporting this event and making it the success that it is.

I am so very excited to be a part of this event!! Our fiendishly clever webmistress has done an outstanding job organizing this event. I can't wait to wander down the virtual paths and explore all the fantastic special features, tricks and treats she has created for all the visitors.
While this event promises to be filled with amazing art from all over the world, we must remember that this is a very important fund-raiser for the bats. I don't know about you, but in our area (northern NY state) we have seen a definite and dramatic decline in the number of bats filling our twilight skies this summer. And equally noticeable have been the record number of mosquitoes. The two are not unrelated! So let's come out and support those who are working hard to help the bats!! They need us just as we need them!!
See you all in the Haunted Forest on October 1st!!

I have awesome news!!!! Mark Dennis, an incredible sculpture artist, has agreed to take part in our Online Hallowe'en Artists' Studio Tour! I covet his work, especially his mermaid and the drowning sailor and his satyr! WOWWWW!! Look at this amazing piece!
Check out Mark's blog at: http://www.madsculptor.blogspot.com/ (Photo of Mark by Adriana Esqueda)
Then drag your zombie behind on over to Britta Peterson's haunted hollow to be utterly amazed! http://www.eerieelegance.com/ and http://www.brittablvd.com/ are her websites and she's been hosting and sharing her Hallowe'en parties for years! You're sure to be inspired by the amazing creativity of this super cool Mistress of Hallowe'en! And she's going to be on our tour!! I am so very happy!
Finally, I've heard from George Plumley that I have permission to use sound clips from his "Sounds Like Halloween Night" CD! While I will be reviewing the CD on the tour, you're welcome to take a sneak peak: http://www.soundslikehalloween.com.
What can I say but that I'm grateful, so very happy and grinning from ear to ear! What an amazing tour we're going to have!

"Participating in Culture Days by registering an activity is a great way for you to further raise your profile in your community, reach new audiences and make new contacts interested in promoting the arts and culture. It’s also a great opportunity to be part of a Canada-wide initiative that supports the vision of promoting access to arts and culture." And there we are!
Also, while I was on vacation, I left a nice pile of bookmarks at the Visitors' Center at MacGregor Provincial Park and in the Port Elgin Public Library! I hope my fellow artists are getting the word out too, it's such a great feeling.

Greetings to all.
Here is a little glimpse into my latest artistic intensive.
Cute and cuddly bats snoozing and swaying from your ears anyone?
I'll keep the finished pair in my attic, happily flying about, until October 1st.

If you create original art, ANY kind, with a Hallowe'en, autumnal or macabre theme, please contact me if you think your art would play nice with the rest. It's all about sharing our art, bat conservation, and enjoying Hallowe'en together. The "fee" is a $28 donation directly to Bat Conservation International, and a promise to spread the word about the tour (through emails, your website, facebook, posters, bookmarks (ready to be printed off the website), etc...), however you are able.
I really hope to find some more European artists, so contact me!
You can send the email to (Karen) at woosel[at]wildmail.com.
This is her corpse bride
and this is her witch.
Aren't the eyes amazing?! I want so much to see her work in person, I hope she creates a piece perfect for my collection!
This is one of the designs:
Notice the lovely batty cutout corners and the cool fuzzy ribbon/yarn! (For the tour, I will be sharing more photos from this incredibly well-decorated home!!) Of course, there will be a very limited supply of cards... hint, hint. ;0

A collector wrote "Here in Pennsylvania we have lost almost all the bats in this area to the dreaded white nose fungus disease, so your Halloween tour is one event which is very dear to my heart." That too reminded me why we're all involved in this event: to help the bats both with our donations to work towards an end to White Nose Syndrome but also to share our love and fascination for these often misunderstood creatures. Here's to saving the bats!

But not this year! I hope to have a skull or two finished for this season.
So far this one is just a work-in-progress and I can't wait to get to the embellishment part!
Well, my skull doesn't have much to say - with no mouth at all, just yet! But, personally, I would like to say thank-you to Karen for all her hard work organizing the Hallowe'en Artists' Studio Trick or Treat Tour every year, in support of bats!!
