Announcing: Danse Macabre

Come to the Dark Side!   I’m hosting the first annual Zombi Walk Blog Hop and I want you to join in the fun.

Come to the Dark Side

Come to the Dark Side

Halloween is not far away.  Most of us who create handmade items to sell are already thinking ahead to fall and the most famous fall holiday, Halloween.   You’ll be posting those items in September, of course, so that everyone may purchase before October 31st.  This blog hop is a great way to get your creative juices flowing and to showcase your handmade items.

Never been in a blog hop before?  Not sure what to do?  Here are the details.

This hop is open to anyone who creates handmade, not just jewelry artisans.   Take great photos and sell them?  You’re in.   Make cards, lampwork or polymer clay beads or charms?  Come on in.   Knit, crochet?  Paint?  Draw?  Sew?  Whatever you make is fine for this hop


I am not looking for cute little items like these adorable mummy earrings that I made

Design something that takes you into the night.  Show us your secret dark fantasy.  Want to to be a wicked witch?   Long secretly for a vampire hug?  See yourself as the landlady of a haunted house?  Want to dance in a voodoo ring with Marie Laveau?  Dress yourself up and join the hop. Comment here or message me on Facebook and be sure to give me your email address because I will need that for the list of people who are going to join.  You will have about 6 weeks to create your dark fantasy item.

The week before the hop, I will send everyone a list of links to the other blogs.    On September 15th, everyone will post the photos of their dark creation and the list of people who are participating.   We will all take our Zombi Walk to other pages and comment on the blogs and hopefully share them.

I’d like to have at least 13 people who join in but the more the scarier!   It’s a great way to get SEO for your blog and your shop and a great way to get to know other guild members.   You may find items you want to buy from others.  Just think of the collections that can be made from the items that are revealed!  If you do not have a blog, you can use your Artfire blog page ………it’s a great way to start blogging.
