When I think of a venue for my work, only a handful come to mind as ones that I would be proud to be part of. For years, one show was a bit like a fairytale for me. It is the famed Ghoultide Gathering. If you have not had the chance yet to come to Michigan to see the show.... you should, it does not disappoint. Collectors and artists come from all over the United States and Canada to soak it all in. The kindness of the artists is magic and the show takes on a life of it's own. Scott Smith and Bill Gilmore take pride in creating a show like no other. They, in essence give a voice to Halloween artists. Bill and Scott create a glow of light around the Halloween genre like no other. I am proud, excited, and humbled to share my work at this amazing event.
Ghoultide Gathering is an artistic backdrop and the artists who participate serve a vibrant reminder of what ORIGINAL is, how art can ignite your soul and whisk you away to a time of childhood magic.
The wheels have started turning for our booth display at Ghoultide Gathering this year. I am a visual designer by trade so I get hung up on the aesthetics so very easy! I really want to come to the table enchantingly... if that's even a word. I think a booth sets the stage. The stage for my merry pumpkins and witches will be different this year. I am toying with a new layout and I hope it will work. It's hard to tell right now, but in the summer we will put it all together and see how it looks.
The 7th annual Ghoultide Gathering will take place on Saturday, September 28th, 2013.
Ghoultide Gathering will be held at the fairgrounds in Chelsea, Michigan. This year we will start with an Early Buy from 8 am to 10 am and Regular Shopping hours will extend from 10 am to 4 pm.
2012 Prim Pumpkin at Ghoultide
Last year our booth was a blend of shabby chic and Halloween. We worked hard and the comments we received really hit home. People felt wrapped in whimsy... Hallowed whimsy that is!

I have whisperings in my heart and I can't wait to share.
