Put on Your Party Hat!...

Cheers, it's Friday, and time to put on your party hat!... You'll notice that I sorta goofed off a bit today, but all in good fun. I just received the party hat samples I designed for Bethany Lowe's 2009 Halloween line, and what FUN they are!... There are 4 festive conical hats, each depicting an illustrated Halloween scene. Enjoy the silly photos and scroll down for more info on how YOU can have your own set.....

* I'm looking a bit mischievous here in my dancing black cat hat!...

* What a goof I am, taking these photos all alone ~ at least I can laugh at myself!...

* Ahh, thinking about which hat I'll wear on Halloween..... maybe ALL of them!...

* Uh-HA, I can decorate with these hats too...multi purpose!...

* Hmmmm, what sorts of hats will I design next.......

So, you might be wondering where you can acquire your own set of these delightful Halloween hats.... Well, I know you can pre-order them from  Christmas Traditions , Bayberry Cove and A Vintage Holiday, three wonderful websites offering a delightful array of holiday collectibles. If you are an online seller of Halloween collectibles, including these festive hats, please let me know, and I will include your link here too!..... Let the Halloween party begin!

PS... Remember my artist feature in Better Homes & Gardens Halloween Tricks & Treats Magazine?... Well the photo below inspired this current line of wearable hats. Originally designed to be worn by my sculptures, I adjusted them graphically to fit our heads!... Remember, they look whimsical both on your head and in your home for Halloween..... Love that multi-functionality :)

Your hats are wonderful and your photo shoot a hoot! It's been awhile since I've contacted you. The last time was when I was trying to locate a store to pick up the magazines you were featured in last Fall. Never did find a copies here in NE so my next trip out to Bosotn a few days later I hoped off the subway and hauled butt to my fav. bookstore there and swooped them up.

Some of you are asking about the Hats.....

So, I plan on offering these hats at this year's Halloween Trunk show in Denver, but otherwise with my crazy schedule, I do not plan on stocking lots of them to ship out.. That's why I suggested the other retailer's links...... Hope this helps, and maybe I'll see some of you this September!!

Thanks for your interest!!
