Yes, here at ElsBeth Lair as soon as summer hits, that is the beginning of my season. Although Halloween is busy for me all year long, things pick up quite a bit as soon as July raises its head.
Things are going great here at ElsBeth Lair. Business is up and it has kept me up many a night trying to keep up.
To keep me in the Halloween spirit and make things creepier for me, I have become accustomed to listening to Horror story and Halloween story Podcasts during the day while I work on my creations. It adds to the ambience and I’m sure my imagination and seems to bring some things out that have just about got me to start writing down my experiences.
I’ve mentioned about having a business card holder being tossed 10 feet across the room, and several other experiences. Well, just to add one more to the list. I purchased this porcelain doll in order to turn her into a horror doll. It has a full body of porcelain and the arms, legs and head swivel. She was on a doll stand and I had her laying down in a stack of other dolls. I don’t know when, but one day I walk into my studio and she is not on her stand but is in a sitting position. That is when I discovered she could sit if it is desired.
Could one of my grandkids have done it? Sure! but they didn’t understand what I was talking about when I asked them.
Anyway, I didn’t move her. She is still sitting right where she was the day I discovered her on the shelf, but I have no idea if things in the room shook somehow, but twice now I have walked past her and her head was turned in a different position. The first time, I noticed it was turned to face me where I sit at my worktable and then I noticed it was turned to face the door.
I truly don’t think the doll is haunted, but with all the other things that have been going on in there, I have to ask myself if something else is moving the doll to freak me out, which by the way, it is seriously successful in doing that.
Well, back to ElsBethLair. You need to check out the store here at the website. We have new Halloween Bird houses, and new dolls all the time. In the next week I will be adding Scarecrow heads and a ancient looking VooDoo doll kit.
Eyes, Wire Spiders, Supernatural Dean’s Bracelets, and The First Blade continue to be among the continual best sellers along with the Porcelain dolls.
Happy Halloween Everyone,
I hope you have a happy, eerie, scary one!
