Best Blog Comments Awards

Well, here I am ready to pass on the "Best Blog Comments Award" given to me by the ever entertaining and gracious ShellHawk! I definitely do not feel I deserved this but I will happily accept! ShellHawk was given this award by the Frog Queen -- both of whom exemplify excellence in bloggdom!!! I know that some of my other favorite bloggers were awarded as well (Mr. Macabre, Dawn of Wacky Whimsy, and Ghoul Friday). I've been mulling over who to pass this onto and in my humble opinion, both Der Krampus of The Embalmer's Nightmare and King Unicorn of Anathema Arcana certainly are deserving. I always know that when I read their blogs, I will find intelligent writing and interesting subjects and photography. So, congrats to both of you! Of course, this award comes with a few strings attached! Or, as ShellHawk said, you have to pass the lovin' on...

1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you and say a few kind words!
2. Paste the picture of the award on your blog.
3. Nominate other bloggers you think deliver great comments on your blog.
4. Let the new nominees know via email, post, etc.

Bride of Frankenstein Gone Wrong

Ok, I made this for a friend on Deviant Art...she really likes blood and gore but I had to have a story to go along with the horror...what to do? lo and behold, I'm browsing through a photographic art book of fantastic "stunning and hyperrealistic " pics by Jeffery Scott (1019) and I happen upon a piece he has entitled "no more animal testing" -- nasty looking subject but oh so cool photo I think, "what if the Bride of Frankenstein went wrong?" might look similar to this...hmmm.... My friend wants to be surprised so I haven't loaded pics on DA yet as I'm boxing up the doll set now....anyway, if anybody has an opinion, let me hear it...otherwise, enjoy looking at a little blood and horror this Friday evening....

one completed and one WIP

well, finished my "death's burden--the plague of 1350 revisited"...and I must say that I don't think its one of my just didn't meet my initial expectations--well, live and learn...perhaps I shall try the same theme again in a different way--but not for awhile...have been working on my "dragonlady"--a bust--which I have never tried before--so far, I'm pleased...anybody have any suggestions, please yell...I am always open to criticism, be it good or bad...
on another note--we got snow!!! haven't had snow here in years and this was a good one--@ 5 inches! my horses stepped out of their stalls and looked outside and promptly snorted and, "what the hell is this?" of course, everything came to a screeching halt--malls closed, schools, etc...this area has no idea how to handle this stuff (Virginia Beach)...its been a blast as far as I'm concerned!
