MORE Halloween party must-haves

Something REALLY scary, to wit:
Scary Halloween party plates featuring this (hand-colored) scary fiendish horror monster.  

The above is a paper party plate; we also got paper party napkins with this scary fiendish horror monster, AND we got...

party hats with his mug as well.

And loads of other stuff.  

Note that the above, as well as the afore-mentioned other stuff -- do not actually have a watermark on them.  It's just for here, and just for protecting you from flying monkeys.

To see and get the above - and plenty more -- go here:

the Tuesday Song of the Week

Something super all that.

"Goin' Up Yonder" - Walter Hawkins & the Love Center Choir, featuring Tramaine Hawkins

Halloween party needs

First, ya needs invitations.  

Wouldn't this image - hand-colored by yours truly -- be perfect for your invites?
Note that the watermark is not on the real thing.
As I'm mentioned many times, watermarks are only on my images 
in order to protect YOU from flying monkeys.

Now, if you're a good host or hostess, you'll be giving your guests party favors, which will serve to remind them of the fun they had at your party and such and such.

This would fit the bill PERFECTLY!
It's both awesome AND useful.

Note again that the watermark is a) not on the actual item, and b) only there for your protection.

Note also that my store has paper plates and napkins with this image. You'll need those for the party, too.  Trust me.

My store has LOTS more stuff with this maahvelous hand-colored-by-me image.

In spite of all the Halloween stuff in the stores, it currently is STILL summer, and will be for at least another week.  

So we got a summer-related song from History's Greatest Rock Band.

Big marcel-waved woman,

and her little man.

Hand-colored by yours truly.

Note that you can get this happy couple on t-shirts - mugs - notebooks - clocks - bags of various types - pillows - tiles - lunchboxes - greeting cards and MORE.
