Smeared & Smudged First Ever Blog Hop!!!

Smeared and Smudged is a forum started by this AMAZING person Terra. It is an absolutely wonderful place filled with the nicest people and such talent. Everyone is encouraging of each other. I just love it! It is also a great place for me to show off a bit of the more macabre stuff I make/like and have people get it!

We are having a blog hop of all the members who wanted to participate and I invite you to come join us!

For this hop I wanted to make something extra special! I decided it was time again to make some Magic Boxes. These are only 1 1/2 inches square and just under 3 inches tall. This time, instead of fairies or flowers I made one with







SPIDERS!!!






















Now- I hope you get a chance to see what everyone else has created just for this hop and for you to see. I also really hope that you will join us at Smeared and Smudged for some FUN!!!
