Yes, Halloween is coming! Although the UK isn’t big on celebrating this particularly day, my partner and I have decided to have a big party (any excuse huh!) as we have the most perfect venue witb our little 1820’s cottage complete with original floorboards and creaky stairs.

So for the last week and a bit we have had unusual packages turning up at the house in preparation for this soiree! Black lights, UV paint, cloth, fire lights, church candles and many more unusual items. All going towards the overall effect of spookiness!

My partner is a wizz when it comes to DIY and has so far fixed the firelights under the floorboards of our dining room, to allow the red light to flood up through the boards, with the lights out it looks great. He has also constructed a bar type area near the front bay window where we are going to store the punch and various spirits (pun not intended…but allowed) and we have giant glass bottles to store underneath to create the alchemist look. Now to find weird things to float in them…

Apart from this I have been painting on some small canvases that I purchased last week, trying to get some more work to put in my Etsy and All Things Original Shop. Speaking of shops I have just set up a new filidavidus shop on and I am registered on Stumbleupon, Flickr and another community for Illustrators! I’ve been very busy, but alas my sales have yet to pick up, which is starting to get me down 😦 But you have to stay positive or you’d just give in, and hopefully I will begin to feel the effect of all the good work I’ve done very soon…
