Welcome and Happy Halloween from the forest primeval

Join me as I continue to creep into the Blogosphere on a gloomy Hallow's Eve.

From my inital foray into online selling of my designs in 2004, I've been known as Mad Science Creations. But of late, I've been dying to change the name of my shop to Madsylvania. A sudden brainstorm for this name hit me while playing World of Warcraft last October. "Mad", as in lunatic fringe (as most creative sorts are), seems to appear in most of my ventures, including my alter-ego, Madviolet. And "Sylvania" refers to my love of forests and the spooky town of Transylvania where Igor assists Dr. Frankenstein with his minion duties.

Now that Etsy has finally allowed shop owners to use a new nomenclature, I was able to do so. Yay! This blog will serve as a portal for all my shops. Prepare for lots of announcements of NEW items from the dark side, contests, tutorials, promotions and other cool stuff. I will also occasionally feature talented artists and their wares just the share their awesomeness.

Oh, and if you are morbidly curious, check out my "new" Etsy shop, Madsylvania.


  1. The new name is very cool, and tho it might take a lil time to get adjusted to it, it's cool that you could change it!

  2. Thanks, Pili!! I LOVE anything that alludes to "Mad Science" but when this name popped into my head, it seemed like an awesomely fitting new name. :)
