Giveaway: Happy Halloween!

Because Halloween is right around the corner, sort of, i've been thinking a lot about my favorite Halloween traditions.  i love baking pumpkin bread, going to haunted houses, eating candy and coming up with the perfect costume.  i also adore watching scary movies.  i watch them throughout the year, but there's something special about watching them on a cool fall evening surrounded by Halloween decorations and dimmed lights with a cat on your lap for protection.  It somehow makes the movies more scary.

It's hard for me to say what my favorite "scary" movie is.  There is a list of movies that i, without fail, will watch every year during the fall.  Obviously, the first Halloween is on there.  Others include Sleepy Hollow, Carnival of Souls, Cabin Fever, The Howling 2: Your Sister is a Werewolf, and Psycho.  Newly added to the list this year is House of the Devil.  I just watched it over the weekend with Zach and it instantly had classic written all over it, for me at least.  Thanks to our friends Shannon and Trevor for recommending it.

Anyway...on to the giveaway.

In honor of my favorite season and holiday, i will be giving away an 8"x10" print of my new "Happy Halloween" illustration.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment telling me your name, email address (so i can contact you if you win), and favorite "scary" movie.  You have until Friday, September 30, 2011 to enter.  i'll choose the winner at random and the winner will be announced the first week of October!  Good Luck!


Mission Completed: Halloween

We are now approaching my favorite season, fall, and my favorite holiday, Halloween.  i've already started thinking about all i want to do for Halloween this year, like what i'm going to put in the treat bags for my niece and nephew, what i'm going to dress Mr. E and Mr. F up as, what food i'm going to make for the annual Halloween party, and what movies i'm going to watch.  There's so much i want to accomplish, and i've already gotten a head start on completing my list!  i have already finished a new set of Halloween illustrations and i'm happy to share them with you now!  The prints are already available in my store, and yes, the kitties in the illustrations are Mr. E and Mr. F.  i couldn't help myself. 

Claire of Nothing Happens Unless We Dream featured the "Happy Halloween" print in her recent "Cat Crazy Saturday" post.  You can check out the post with all her cute finds here
