Happy Autumn! Well, almost. We still have a few more days before the official first day of Fall (Wednesday, September 23, 2015) kicks off. However. I couldn't wait to share my latest design with you.

My mantel is still in the first stages of being decorated, later in the following weeks this fireplace mantel will come alive. My fireplace still needs an assortment of pillar candles for added spookiness and I'm also thinking paper bats- stay tune to see how this fireplace mantel turns out. Big reveal coming later this month October 2015.

I still need to tuck-away the eye socket tabs to give my 3D Skulls a much cleaner look.

Are these not the cutest four-legged critters you have ever seen? I love that you can pose all four limbs, tail, and little hands and feet anyway you like.

*Note: the body and head are not pose-able.   

Cobweb Corner via Silhouette Design Store

Here you have the same cobweb corner by Jennifer Wambach -one sports the dangling spider, the other is spider-less but it is the same web.

I just have to close with a big thank you to my super awesome family and friends. Thank you all for being so nonchalant and able to see past the fact that our home is starting to look a little like the Addams Family house. I really have to mainly thank my wonderful husband for allowing all this kookiness to go on, for his constant support and patience with me this time of year, every year. I tell my husband, "Honey, it's for the blog," and Mr. Egg just smiles and nods, as I carry on, and continue turning our humble home into a haunted home.

Well my friend. I hope you'll continue to follow my progress and check back frequently to see what fun and exciting things I have to share with you. You may also follow via Instagram to stay updated on all my designs. I hope you enjoyed spending a little time with me today, I truly enjoyed your visit.

- Maritza.
