Here Comes Halloween and Penelope the Witch

Jack o'lanterns, ghosts and ghoulies, and things that go bump in the night! 

We are entering that delightfully shivery time of year when the days grow shorter and darker, and the veil between the worlds thins. The perfect time of year for Penelope the witch to make her debut!

Cute enough for even the most faint of heart, but still surrounded by pumpkins, bats, and even a Venus fly trap or two, this little witch may steal your heart.

Working diligently to get her done for you by October 1st so you can light your pumpkin scented candles and drink your Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte while you color.

 Please tell me if you like her, or if you can think of anything you would like to see growing in her midnight garden.

  4. This is wonderful!!!!!! I almost feel transported back to a time when I had no cares in the world and was all alone with my coloring book in a peaceful moment. I think your drawing is perfect as is, but maybe she wants a feline friend? :D
