"The White Magick Witch Spirit will listen and hold sacred all secrets or spells told to her by her guardian of spirit. She will bring magick filled with love, energy, protection, and support. Despite her creepy appearance, she is filled with magical love along with just enough creep so that she is able to immediately deflect any black magic energies from entering her space." - DLynne

'Two centuries ago, a man lived in the area, a recluse shunned by the other villagers. Though wolf attacks were common at the time, his flock of sheep was never touched. One night when the moon was full, a farmer saw a wolf run into the shadows; he gave his gun and gave chase. He fired at a shot, but in the darkness, could not find the animal's corpse. He waited until the following morning, where he discovered the body of the recluse in his field. With the superstitions of the time, the villagers did not wish to bury the man in sacred ground, and so erected a tombstone far out in the surrounding forest. I remember coming across this grave as a child, but until now, I could not locate it despite my constant searching.' - Eggman

This is one of the most stunning images I have ever seen.

No matter what browser I'm using, whether or not I have cleared the browsing cache, or whether or not I increaase the amount of Flash virtual memory to maximum - the site keeps crashing less than a minute or two after hitting it.
Have contacted the support team at my hosting company. Fingers crossed. I really don't want to have to rebuild again.
On another note, I was able to finish the image organization for the factory galleries last night. Not that it matters much if you can't get to it to see it. Blah! STUPID WIX!!! I think I'm going back to Flickr surfing for awhile. ;D

Grimdeva's mixed media and miniature art is absolutely magical. I've always been obsessed with miniatures, that's probably why I wound up being a doll artist. Her work combines the spooky and vintage so beautifully. Her Etsy shop.
We’ve completed the big move. Now it’s just a matter of taming the ‘jenga jungle’ as we call it.
I’m looking forward to new creative adventures and working on setting up the new studio so that I can get back to work.
As the yard here at the new house is so much larger, I have begun to get excited about the Halloween season again. Each year we haunt our yard for the neighborhood kids and each year new ideas jump into our heads about how to expand and make it even better than the last.
Here’s just a small taste of what you’ll find there:
