Dixie Dellamorto is Crazy for Carpenter!

Crazy for Carpenter… (and Kurt Russell).

These images were illustrated by our very own Dixie Dellamorto, inspired by cartoons of the 70’s and 80’s and the films of John Carpenter (and Kurt Russell).

“I designed lunchbox art for movies that I think should have had a kids show. Something like ‘The Continued Adventures of Snake Plissken’,’The Pork-Chop Express Comedy Hour’, or ‘R.J. MacReady Action Hero’…”

Fun New Items in Our Shop!!

Shop Sign 1Howdy Gang, Dixie Here!
Winter just won’t quit.
Outside the wind is blowing. It’s cold and wet. Ominous clouds are cracked open like a deformed pinata full of your least favorite candy, which (if you’re anything like me) is probably those black and orange peanut butter thingies they give out on Halloween and old people call Reese’s when they’re so clearly not — but I digress…
nasty candy
Today didn’t feel like a productive day to spend in the Creepy Crafter studio so I curled up with a 70’s horror movie, some hot chocolate, and a determination to put some of my new products in the shop. Items include:

Box pink cute green skull B 18 decorated wooden boxes in all shapes, sizes, and colors
Painting Twilight Zone A 7 original paintings including this never-before-seen Rod Serling mixed media piece!
ZAMN Lunchbox A
and a Retro Zombies Ate My Neighbors Lunchbox!

Also, keep an eye out this week for our new line of jewelry and accessories.
If you’ve got some free time on this dreary Sunday afternoon, stop by our
shop and if you feel so inclined buy something for yourself or a friend — it’s what keeps us going!

Creepy Crafters Clean Up Their Act

Where do you spend most of your time in the morning? Where do you apply your makeup and make sure your fangs are on straight? Where do you get clean? Where do you read your favorite Horror Magazines? Well, if you’re anything like us, you answered “The Can”, “The John”, “The Lavatory”, “Water Closet”, “Outhouse”, or even just “the Bathroom”. But are you tired of it being just the place where you do your hair, brush your teeth, and do your business (and we think you know what we mean)? Well Creepy Crafters is cleaning up our act and bringing you some of the best handmade bathroom crafts for the Horror Fan in all of us. And just to let you know, we could have done a whole Creepy Crafters just on Soap. Seriously the amount of fantastic horror themed soaps on etsy is staggering. Just check this out: Horror Soaps on Etsy

 

Dugshop offers glow in the dark Soap… This is soap… SOAP… We can’t believe it. This glowing soap featuring a Dr. Phibes still is Dragons Blood Scented and totally amazing. Check out what seems like millions of other Horror themed soaps at their shop!

 

 

 

This unique Nosferatu shower curtain by CustomShowerCurtains is available for purchase now, it’s “Hand-painted with a brush just like a piece of art!”

 

 

 

“He’s been dying to meet you!
This small soap by SickSoapsByChynne is made from unscented moisturizing glycerin soap. Some say he’s Ezra- the tallest of the hitchhiking ghosts. Some say he is the infamous Hat Box ghost, long gone from the Mansion, leaving behind only his portrait. You were warned that a hitchhiker would follow you home- now you can make that nightmare come true with this soap!”

 

Only you can prevent the Zombie Apocalypse. This ultra cute art print by LisaBarbero for the bathroom or anywhere you can wash your hands is a humorous if perhaps somewhat twisted reminder to be sure to wash up. And wash up good. Or else.


“Put art where you wouldn’t think to see it-on a toilet seat! A fun toilet seat that is inspired by Dia de los Muertos. DebbieIsAdopted painted a colorful skull with crystals all around it to give it added sparkle. Would make a great gift. Can be used as a toilet seat or hung on the wall as art in your bathroom.”

Happy New Year HHCF fans — Dixie Dellamorto here!
I wanted to share one of my new years resolutions with all of you.
I want to find someone who is doing something really great every day, then I want to tell them that I think they’re great. I started this today while I partaking in my not-so-guilty-pleasure of ritualistically browsing Etsy for Pee-Wee Herman handmade art. That is when I found an awesome drawing of Pee-Wee Herman with his iconic red bicycle(below). I was delighted by the idea of JacobDIDthis, his fun pop culture inspired artwork, and his story.
Pee Wee Herman

Batman with CandyBatman with CandyAccording to his Etsy Profile Jacob is 10 years old. His dad helps him sell his artwork on Etsy. Last year he sold his drawings and prints during his summer vacation in order to raise money so he Ghost Ridercould attend Dragon*Con. Luckily he made his goal and is already saving up for 2013 — but he is dreaming bigger! He wants to set up a vender table of his very own in the Artist Alley and attend more conventions as a true artist!
With interests like Godzilla, Army of Darkness, The Tick, Batman, and Hellboy, I think he’ll fit in quite nicely with convention artists and attendees alike.
The Tick 1 Boomstick!Hellboy

What an awesome goal for a 10 year old. Sometimes you need a kid to remind you of the basics: Hard work and Perseverance pay off and don’t ever stop dreaming. Jacob is great and so is his dad! GodzillaThanks for reading and please check out his Etsy Shop or click on the images to go to the listings!
