I need some evil minions!

I added an awesome countdown to the site to show how many days are left to “the BIG day”.  I can’t believe it’s already October.  I’m already in love with the cooler weather but I don’t even have any decorations out  yet.

I’m feeling a bit like Santa (a.k.a. Jack Skellington) today.  There are coffins to finish and jewelry to make for the shop, all of which all need packaging, labeling and shipping to their awesome new owners.

Plus I need to really be stocking up on inventory for the three big events I have going on this month.  I’m scheduled for two Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) events and the ICT Roller Girls Annual Monster Mashup.  There aren’t enough hours in the day!

As I was working on this post I was wishing for my own team of evil minions.  Not a bunch, but at least a few that were good at sanding coffins for all the gruesome little boys and gouls.  And maybe a couple more that would take over all the shipping duties.  But until that happens I guess I better get back to the morgue (studio) and get back to work!

Hugs and kisses from Buxom♥Bones where we believe everyday should be Halloween!

I fell in love with a Roller Derby Queen

I remember watching the Roller Derby bouts on one of the three channels we got when I was a kid.  I’ve watched the movie “Whip It” over and over.  I can’t even begin to guess how many times I’ve sung along to the lyrics by Jim Croce.  So, you can probably imagine how excited I am to be a sponsor for our local Women’s Flat Track Derby Team, the ICT Roller Girls. This Saturday, May 18, 2013 Buxom♥Bones will have a booth at the bout where you can see all my cool Gothic jewelry and gifts.  Be one of the first 25 people through the door and you will receive a free ICT Roller Girl pinback button to support our local team.

Two NEW Collections Debut at the Fall Red Barn Outdoor Market – Part I: Sugar Skulls

I can’t express how excited I am to have the first of these two new collection ready to make their debuts this Saturday at the Fall Red Barn Outdoor Market in Benton, KS.  I’ve been working like crazy (what’s new?) on getting these two new lines ready to go for the fall season and what better time to release them than at my first fall event?

The first new line is a collection of Sugar Skull Brooches.  Each brooch is made entirely by hand and although some may use similar colors or designs each one is completely unique unto itself.  I’m posting a single brooch on my Etsy site today but the rest of the brooches will be making the trip to Benton for your perusal and purchase this weekend.  They are a perfect tiny taste of Halloween and Dia de los Muertos to add to any outfit!


Stay tuned to learn more tomorrow about the gIRLY gOTH collection!

More Locations…

I am so pleased to announce that you can now find the cool Gothic items by Buxom♥Bones in even more locations.  Be sure to check out all my dark goodies at the Wichita City Arts gallery.

While you’re there be sure to check out the super bright and incredibly awesome artwork of Jami Moore.

To make it easier to see my items in person I’ve created a new “Where to Buy” page on the blog that lists where my products can be found locally as well as a list of upcoming events where Buxom♥Bones will have a booth.  As always, you can see any of my Gothic jewelry or gifts at Buxom♥Bones website.

International Girl Gone Local!!!

It’s true.  Es verdad.

I’ve happily been shipping my little coffin jewelry boxes all over the world for the past three years.  Today I am very pleased to announce they are now available locally.  The coffin jewelry boxes and a selection of jewelry by Buxom?Bones is now being featured at Dos Fridas right here in Wichita, Kansas.

Dos Fridas is located in the Nomar International District at 21st and Broadway in the extremely cool pie shaped building on the Southeast corner.  It is owned and operated by Lolly Hernandez and offers a wide variety of imports including pottery, wrought iron, tile, folkart, glassware, Dia de los Muertos items, and Sugar Skull classes.   Their mission is to provide a positive and fun experience about Culture, Art and Food.  Visit Dos Fridas facebook page to learn more.

My little dark corner of the world…

I’ve attended or worked various fairs in the years past but this weekend was my first experience with having a booth at a craft fair.  The temperatures outside were ridiculous so it was great to be indoors.

My mom and I shared a booth and we’ve been working the last few weeks to get our tables and displays ready.  I’m pretty pleased with how my banners turned out but I think they might draw more attention if they were hanging above the tables.

We’ll be back for the November 10th, 2012 Craftapalooza Fair in just a few short months.  See you then!
