The many faces of Twinkle. Kristen Beason, as well as Lori Rudolph, have agreed to take on Twinkle in ornament form in the coming months, so look for that soon!

Here are the two prizes to be given away one week from today at 12:00 NOON!

Twinkle wants to THANK you all for stopping by!!Woof!! Woof!!

Welcome to my 200th blog post. It is hard to believe that on August 7, 2008 all of this began, wow what a great adventure… Who knew I would be joining such a fabulous world of fun and fancy free merriment! Over the past couple of weeks I have been revisiting old posts, comments, and friend’s blogs. I feel so grateful to be part of this artistic, creative, and crafty community. You all have welcomed me with open arms, for all of that I thank you.

There is also new business, many of you were surprised, as I was, when I recently opened an ETSY Shop, but at the same time so supportive of me in my new venture. Speaking of that many items have be drastically reduced in celebration of my 200th blog post, so stop by and grab one now, before they are all gone!!

Okay, now stepping back and reminiscing through old posts I have found that you love three things-peeking inside my home at Halloween, free stuff through blog give-aways (Can’t say I blame you), and Twinkle!!!

First let’s talk about FREE STUFF, well guess what there is more free stuff!!! I have created two illustrations for this post, based on my previous post, “What is your favorite villain??” Here is all you have to do all friends, followers, bloggers, face bookers, twitterers… just leave me a note on this post and I will enter your name in the drawing for the two works of art above. There is the witch from Snow White and Cruella, first pick gets first choice. The names will be pulled from the David Everett “Twinkle” candy container-learn more below.You can enter any time between now and next Friday at noon. At noon I will pull from the Twinkle candy container to see who wins!!

The second most popular post was when you all were given a chance to come inside my home for Halloween! Well guess what folks this year you can come inside my home, but in print----Say what?? Yes, my home, my collectibles, and myself will be up for grabs in this years Fall Celebrate 365. Contact Connie Porcher now to subscribe to her wonderful Journal for collecting for the year, or check back in the fall for single copies. Either way you get to see me!!!

Finally it is time to let the dog out…my pooch Twinkle keeps popping up everywhere and we all love her. She only became a part of our family a few months before I started this blog. She became famous or infamous very quickly. Johanna Parker created the first “Twinkle” on August 28th 2008. Since then Chris Klinger, David Everett, and Kristen Beason have taken a crack at my cutie. She has even shown up on my banner for ETSY, through my pen and she has always been my link for my blog http://twinklestricksandtreats.blogspot.com Now Kristen Beason and Lori Rudolph have agreed to take on the challenge of creating her in ornament form/ You will continue to see us in the days, weeks, months, and years to come.
I thank you as you celebrate our 200th blog post of Halloween Fanatic.
