Amazing craft idea for the zombie lover in your life!

Imaginary boyfriends are the best.

This is how to get ALL the ladies!

Who knew cupid’s name was…DAN?

Unparalleled romance:

On a related note, the Newton Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant in Brooklyn is offering a morning tour of its sludge processing facility (I’m not kidding!)

My kinda cupid!

If I ever get married, I would shower my husband with beautiful sentiments like this:

You’ll rarely hear me say this, but…forget the chocolate…I want the box!

I forgot to put this fellow, all spiffy in his Valentine suit, in my Bat Valentine post:

Many folks who frequent this blog would probably appreciate the Tim Burton Valentine Card Set.

Boo Boo the Valentine Ghost just wants someone to love him.

And a couple of other sculpted creatures I found, without artist credit.

Crafty Christmas Roundup

MERRY CHRISTMAS to those who celebrate it today! I probably should have done this earlier in the season when folks still had time to order cool holiday decorations and gifts, but…here’s a roundup of some of my favorite spooky crafts this year.

Some great gift tags by ThelronDogMercantile:

Classy skull snowflake ornament by OceannaInWonderland:

I’ve made skeleton gingerbread man ornaments, but this reindeer by Wickedjosixx is an ever better idea!

And here’s another bit of skeletal sweetness that I’ve often thought of making myself. Nutcrackers! By PeachyCheek:

Glowreahhh has these little cuties in a number of different colors:

Embroidered baby bib by MorningTempest:

Card variety pack by TrashBatRaven:

And a cute little card by GinerDead:

Have you ever seen the grim reaper looking so adorable and festive? Card by OnCupcakeMoon:

A cute Goreyesque design from PrinceandPauper:

And this piece from Haunted Nonsense would make a dynamite Christmas card!

Wonderful sculptures by SirCedricsGoodHeads:

Or if you prefer sculptures of the maritime persuasion, there is Lady Cthulhia by WoodedWoods

I hope you are all enjoying the holidays!

Physiological Find a Word

I have no idea where I saved this from, when it was printed, or what the source may have been.

But give it a try…

My result: Bail Maniac Suicides. I am going into a healing profession, so this makes a perverse kind of sense, eh?

Okay, okay…this has been going around the web quite a bit, but folks who don’t subscribe to hundreds of art blogs like I do might not have seen them.

Jonathan Koshi has a series of prints featuring pop culture icons in Day of the Dead fashion.

Favorite (of course):
