EDT Year Long Bday Swap Gifts Pt 3

My third Bday Swap Gift arrived in a ginormous box and I couldn't even imagine what it could be. I peeked at the return address to see that it was from the lovely CauldronCraftMinis, the fine purveyor of miniatures, herbs & oddities. Ooh. So I grabbed up my nearest scissors and quickly cut through the tape to find...


A herb smothered candle taper, an elegantly witchy little broom, pony fall, herbs, herbs and more herbs, bats to hang from my ceiling, a lovely steampunk necklace, a coffin box complete with vampire bat and stuffed with the aptly named Graveyard Dirt oatmeal facial scrub. Wowza! Oh and the toe tag card is just hilarious. Apparently I died in a sewing machine accident! Maybe I should look into that little electrical issue my one machine has after all?

Thank you, CauldronCraftMinis! Hopefully I'll be able to luxuriate and feel like a fairy princess soon. ♥ ~Static

Part of a weird dream I had the other night...

There were 5 or 6 tabby kittens in the bathtub, water dripping from the faucet. I went to find the mama cat and found her in the next room. By the time I brought her back into the bathroom somehow the drain had shut and the tub was half full with yellowish water. And, instead of kittens there were now mewling blue eyed, balloon-like baby heads. Most had flung themselves out of the tub and into the sink or onto the counter across the narrow bathroom. Two were left in the tub. One managed to fling itself out as I moved forward to get them, the other just sank. So I rushed over and scooped it out, plopping it into the sink. The mama cat jumped up to check on them as if it was perfectly normal for her kittens to have turned into blue eyed balloon baby heads about the size of grapefruits.

Kittens and baby heads... what the hell does that mean? Sigh. Par for the course really. I have the strangest damn dreams. My hubby hardly ever remembers his so he finds mine fascinating. And, no, I am not under the influence of anything. My dreams really are this strange sometimes all on their own. I guess it's all a part of being a creative type? ;D

EDT Year Long Bday Swap Gifts Pt 2

Yesterday I just had a feeling I had better check my mail and I'm happy I did! There was a brown paper wrapped box waiting for me from ForeverFall. It was sealed with some seriously industrial tape but with a little "help" from my kitties I got it open. Yes, I'm one of those people that undoes the tape on wrapping paper. Hey, it's all about recycling. Anyway, while the kitties decided who would get nesting rights in the paper I sawed away at more tape on the box. Which, I might add, was conveniently labeled as to which side to open. Of course it was in my lap upside down.

Within the mounds of black tissue paper I found this...

BdaySwap-fromForeverFall1 BdaySwap-fromForeverFall2

Isn't she lovely? She even has crazy hair like mine! Her name is Sideshow Siouxsie and her little buddies in her hair are Trilla & Trixie, on the left, and Mr. Obselete: the Man With No Arms, on the right.

Thank you, ForeverFall! You really have a talent and should have a whole slue of awesome sideshow dollies & hair sculptures in your shop! ~Static

EDT Year Long Bday Swap Gifts Pt 1

My birthday is the 23rd of this month. I'll be, um... 29 (again). The ever so awesome AgonysDecay organized a Year Long Bday Swap for our team which of course I couldn't pass up. Each of us sends out 3 gifts throughout the year and then when our bday rolls around we receive 3 gifts. It's a secret swap so you never know what you're going to get or from whom! But of course they're always awesome because they're from EtsyDarkTeam members so you can't go wrong.

In my last post you got to see what I sent out this month, now you get to see what I received. My first birthday gift (of three) arrived the other day from CoffinCritters!


A Cemetery Rose scented soy candle (that didn't make it into the pic in my excitement) with moss, a ghostly kaleidoscope, bubbles, a handmade skull jar with cemetery dust for luck (and boy could I use some!), an off-white round lidded box painted with black stripes on the lid and embellished with a skull key, a voodoo dude bottle cap charm and a small purple painted box with black stripes and stitches!

I'm going to have to find a good spot in my livingroom to display all my birthday goodies. It already smells delish in here thanks to the Cemetery Roses candle and it's not even lit! Be sure to check out the awesomeness of CoffinCritters for yourself at her shop. Now to freak out the kitties with bubbles *muhuhahaha* Thank you, CoffinCritters!

I'll be posting about my 2nd gift shortly! ~Static

EDT Year Long Bday Swap: Ebil Bun Bunnee


Ebil Bun Bunnee stalks behind dust ruffles and under couches seeking out those dirty little wannabe bunnies made of dust with it's sharp little claws and wicked carrot blade. Though you might want to watch your ankles. Ebil Bun Bunnee gets a little overzealous at times.

♦♦♦♦    ♦♦♦♦    ♦♦♦♦    ♦♦♦♦

Ebil Bun Bunnee was created as part of the EtsyDarkTeam's Year Long Birthday Swap and now lives with Nitebyrd far away where he can't poke and tease my other critters. This naughty bunny has issues with authority but should behave well enough as long as there is an ample stash of carrots laying about.

Can't wait to share my presents shortly!

Devious Kitten and Ebil Pumpkin

A kitten padded through the pumpkin patch unseen except for the occasional glow of his neon green eyes. The vines thicken until a pumpkin almost the size of Kitten's head blocked the way. He figured the easiest way around would be over so he hunkered down, gave his booty a little wiggle and executed a most graceful little hop to clear it. At least he thought he was being graceful until his paw caught in a vine. As undignified as a face-plant in the vine tangled dirt can be he managed to bounce up like he meant to land like that. That's when he heard a rustling snicker behind him. The kitten immediately spun about and made himself look as big as possible. There was nothing there but the pumpkin. Deciding the snickering was really only the wind the kitten proceeds to kick dirt on the offending gourd.

"Hey! Do you mind? You got dirt in my eyehole!"

"A-a-a talking pumpkin?!", the kitten hissed.

"Well aren't you just Captain Obvious. I could say the same, you know. A-a-a talking kitten?!", the pumpkin teased while flicking dirt out of it's eyehole with a long twisted vine.

The kitten glared at the pumpkin and decided now was a good time to clean and straighten his back fur.

"Look, sorry for tripping you but I've no one to talk with in this dank patch. I mean look around, they all just sit there like a bunch of lumps studiously ignoring one another. I mean, what's the point of being able to talk if you just go about ignoring everyone and thing?"

"So...", the kitten mushroomed and then settled ramrod straight, "All the veggies here can talk?"

"No just the pumpkins. At least here in this patch. Something to do with a curse. Or something silly like that. And technically we're fruit not veggies. Anyway, it doesn't matter. They", the chatty gourd waves a vine around, "won't say a word. Not even a good day or howdedo. Eyes shut and mouths closed, we're just plain old pumpkins here. Lazy lumpkins more like."

"Well at least some know when they should be quiet." the kitten sniffed looking about.

"Oh come on. Don't be like that. I said I was sorry. I'm just bored is all. Maybe we could work something out? You get me out of here and I'll make it up to you."

"Pff, what can you do? Can you turn yourself into a pie? A nice warm pie with a saucer of milk would be great right about now."

"Alright, enough of that. " The pumpkin scratches where his chin would have been if he had one in thought. "First off I'm Ebil Pumpkin. The others named me that though I don't see why. Just because I get up to mischief now again." Ebil Pumpkin paused dreamily for a moment before shaking himself out of his reverie. "You can just call me Ee. You know like "eek" but with out the 'k'." Chuckling at his lame joke, "And you are...?"

"Devious. Devious Kitten. But you can call me Dee."

"Well, Dee... Dee & Ee, I like that. Well, Dee, you do look like the sneaky sort", which Dee immediately harumphed at but didn't put much heart behind, "so I suppose I could serve as a lookout, and I am good at tangling up feet as you might have noticed."

"You're not helping yourself, you know. You're lucky I'm bored too or I'd be so out of here. Cans to dump, dogs to spook and all that."

"Mmhmm. I can be good company.", hurrying to continue past the slit eyed glared Dee shot him, "I know, I know. I can be a tad chatty but I can be quiet when needed. Really I can."

It was Dee's turn to say, "Mmhmm."

"I can, uh, scowl with the best of them. See? Grr." Dee sighs heavily "Ok, fine. I'm lonely, alright. Happy now? Please just get me out of here. I'm losing my mind to sheer and utter boredom of it all. I need to get out and see the world before I wither away to nothing. I can tell you all sorts of stories and we could be friends. Everyone needs a friend now again right? Oh and you can hide things in me. Look at all the space." Ee opens his mouth wide for Dee to peer in and it does seem to go on forever.

After a good long thoughtful stare Dee sighs, "I'm so going to regret this.", and hefts the surprising light Ee onto his back. As Ee wraps his vines around to keep himself steady Dee wobbles a bit. "Not around the middle! Don't you know anything about cats? Sheesh."

"Oh right, sorry." says Ee as he resettles himself like a backpack. Dee shakes his head, as he takes off into the night, at the thought of a kitten toting around talking pumpkin but there are stranger things. Stranger things by far.

MrsEvils Rocks Your Head & Eats Your Brains

MrsEvils sends me some of the best goodies! Not only do I have a couple of her awesome hair flowers (Spider Flower below), a crossstitch kit (which sadly I've yet to find time to try) and a Stabby magnet among other things, but she sent me a sample of her new zombie eyeshadow line. A beautiful dark green eyeshadow named after me! Static!


"Static" is a dark shimmering green that reminds me of the darkest metallic green of a beetle.


My photography skills just don't do it justice. I used it a bit sparingly, being the first time I was trying it out. That and, well, I couldn't find my applicators and used a q-tip instead. I was pleasantly surprised by how smoothly it went on and how easy it was to blend. It goes great with a dark gold eyeshadow, as you can see! Also, no allergic reaction. My skin is fairly sensitive and my allergies act up if even so much as think of something I'm allergic to so this is a big deal to me.

When I asked her why green, she told me my photoshop self portrait was her inspiration... *blush*


Thank you MrsEvils! I am beyond flattered and love, love, love it ♥ ~Static

My zombies, they are taking over!

Rommie the Not-Sock Zombie Monkey now lives on the US East Coast, another Not-So-Fresh Zombie is nibbling his way through the UK & a Lil Zombie Jibber is biting toes in Australia!


NotSoFreshZombiePin4 LilZombieJibber1

If you look real close you can see Lil Zombie Jibber (bottom right) has got himself a little soul patch (wee goatee) & a labret like his larger human counterpart! He's also missing his foot which was apparently gnawed off in his attempted escape from the other zombies. Didn't do him much good did it?
