Cozy Sunday

Yesterday's field trip to antique stores was wonderful.  I got a lot of great vintage books and plenty of beautiful threads. If only I knew how to work my sewing machine... I'll post pictures soon of some of the awesome books.
The above picture is a great picture I found of my uncle and many of his friends. It was probably taken in the late 1960s to early 1970s.  It's a perfect photo for halloween. I recently organized a sticker exchange and used that picture as my sticker.  It might have been cheating a bit because I didn't create my own art for the exchange but I love the picture so much. Which one of the trick or treaters would you be for Halloween?
I spent a good part of today designing greeting cards with my work on them.  I ordered a set with Hellcat and Haunted Houses on it.  I'm thinking I will sell them in sets of ten and I may silkscreen a pattern on the envelopes.  That will give it a little extra handcrafted something.  I can't wait to get them in.  Any readers out there have suggestions for prices?
I'm at the studio now so I'm off to draw on manila envelopes.  Have a cozy Sunday!

The clown dressed in yellow and blue is by far the LEAST scary clown I've ever seen! :) Sweet photo. I hate to say it but I'd probably be the one in the prettiest dress or the princess, which ever had the prettiest outfit.
