WooHoo! We're BAAACK! It's a brand New Year and Macabre Mondays are up and running again at Haunted Design House with a new look and new fortnightly (meaning bi-weekly, but isn't fortnightly infinitely more posh?) format and being on Team B, I get to procrastinate and check out Team A's stuff before I even have to think about mine. Me likey! Better yet, to ease into this our challenge is a perenniel fave, Freaker's Free for All, which means Anything Goes (as long as it's not overtly cute, because frankly, that makes us all toss our cookies).
Ahhh, 2013! A time for new beginnings and a crapload of good intentions that pretty much get tossed aside by Feb, but in the interest of at least documenting my failures, I've decided to start a little New Year's Resolution Journal so I can look back and see how I've failed miserably at the end of the year. Let's start with the Resolution I make every year, shall we? You think I'm kidding here? Ah well...nope! My deadline used to be Valentine's Day, but last year I reached a new low. Thank God for fake trees or we wouldn't even be having this discussion. In my defense, I'm generally still putting stuff up as the doorbell rings on Christmas Eve so it's not like stuff has been up since before Thanksgiving, and the lights are so damn pretty and...well anyway, THIS YEAR IT'S GOING TO BE DIFFERENT. I have to admit, it sorta cramps my style and I'm fairly embarrassed to have people over or open the door for the UPS guy after a certain number of weeks. I've used (quite appropriately) a Creepmas image from Rick St. Dennis called "I Got Decoratin' to Do" and she was a ball to color with Copics. Dig the leopard knickers, whadda ya think? She's enlisted the help of some friendly bats from the Smeared Ink Bats with Garland- Gothic Christmas that comes individually and as a set and a couple of martinis. Oh oh, I sense another Resolution coming somewhere down the road... The DP is from the ancient K& Co Christmas Cheer stack that I loved so much in 2009 that I bought a bazillion pads of it. Time to start using that puppy, eh?
So that's my first project of the New Year at HDH. Feels so good to get my creep back on. Please visit the Blog to see the rest of Team B's fab projects HERE as well as the stellar offerings from Team A HERE. And don't forget, there's still time to link up your dark, creepy or Gothic projects and let the Minions faun all over your fabulous talent. Now that you've got 2 whole weeks, there's no excuse.
I'm also entering this in the Sparkle and Glitter with Rick St. Dennis New Beginnings Challenge, the Milk Coffee New Beginnings challenge, Corrosive Challenges Out with the Old (in this case the DP) and the Glitter n Sparkle Use a Digi Challenge.
