Closeup of four beaded halloween bracelets.

I love these bracelets so much! Every time I look at them, I want to make a dozen more. Except one more bead wide, because even-count peyote is easier. I don’t know that I’ll ever sell them. For one, I love them. For two, peyote stitch is slow work, and I’d have to charge $$.

Also, happy Countdown to Halloween! Always a good way to kick off my birthday month. The Spousal Unit insists I don’t have a whole month, but c’mon, my birthday is at the beginning, and my favorite holiday is at the end. And let’s face it, I’m gonna be buying myself gifts all month.

Four beaded Halloween bracelets on a spooky skeleton paper.

I have a lot of Halloween stuff. Bins and bins. Most of it is mass produced, from places like Home Goods or Michael’s. This year, doing my usual Halloween hunt at those places just didn’t appeal. I wanted something original, made by human hands.

So for 2023, I am buying original Halloween art. If you are an artist, or know of something good, hit me up in the comments.

Anything I buy will be featured here on Spooky Moon in October, when there’s more traffic. Sales and publicity–what could be better?

I have skipped the past few years of the Countdown, though I love it so. I just haven’t been up to it.

But this year, I’ll have a new shop on Artisans Coop, so it’s in my best interests to get off my spooky butt and join again!

If you have a spooky blog, they’d love to have you. Just sign up, and post every day (or, you know, mostly) during October. One of the best aspects is going through the list of other blogs–and there are many!–and checking them out and saying hello.

Now I just have to figure out what to post besides spamming my blog with shop updates.
