Hi Marie,
How can I choose just one thing that I liked about the videos:)
I loved everything! My most favorite thing in your first video is your Halloween tree. I love the tall trunk with the branches at the top and the ornaments dangling. I think it is a stunning tree. the second video was so cool! I Love animatronics and that skeleton stole my heart right away :)
I am a follower of your blog, and on the hive.
I would love a chance to win your spun cotton ornament.
I must say, your spun cotton ornaments are fantastic!
I know that it is, in a sense a lost art and you are one of the artist's that has brought it back in a stunning way!

Thanks for the fun video's :)

Hi Marie!! The decorations are awesome, I love how everyone went all out with their costumes, I especially liked the Beetlejuice costume! One of my favorite Tim Burton Movies. It looks like everyone had a great time. I already follow you on the hive,facebook and your blog. I am a long time fan of your work!! Leslie

Hi Marie- I follow you here, at the Hive and on Facebook. I watched both the video and the slide show. I loved the pics of your ornaments, but wish they were close-ups so I could see the details since I already love your work and know you put a lot of time into each piece. For this contest though. I will say that my favorite part is the "Don't Feed the Frogs" sign, complete with hat and bones. Such originality!
