Zombie decor for a bathroom?

Brainy themes are always in style. ;)

This undead decor is "to die for"!! ;) Appreciation goes out to Zombie Queen for sharing her creepy cool video which features one of Madsylvania's offerings: a zombie kitty hand towel. *need to go shopping for the walker themed items shown here*

Spring has sprung

Flowers are blooming everywhere and with spring, new listings are popping up in the shops. The newest offering in Madsylvania is a twisted Easter item. Damien, the Deviled Egg, is a sinister but adorable plushie who would love to menace your home for the season.

Also available are dark themed Embroidery Hoop Art Wall Hangings with crafters in mind. All are constructed from vintage hoops with a machine embroidered image.

Off to work on more new items for Magicwerks!!

Let the Games begin......

"If we burn, you burn with us." - Katniss Everdeen, Girl on Fire

Just listed in the Magicwerks shop this week: several new items inspired by The Hunger Games trilogy. A killer shrug, a handy smart phone case and snuggly arm warmers. All with a large gold machine embroidered Mockingjay.

Currently in the process of re-organizing the studio. Don't go into shock but the craft table is nice and tidy so I have a clean surface to work on more goodies. :)

Don't be afraid of Maxwell the Angry Knife

Just finished up a "killer" project. Behold, my entry for the Urban Threads "Monster Bash Contest."

Maxwell the Angry Knife is one creepy cutlery dude. He may have anger issues but he has a soft side too.

Oh and he's now available at the Madsylvania Etsy Shop. On a roll, so be ready for some new sinister toys and other goodies. :)

Super Bowl Sunday new product sneak peek

A recent commissioned order was for a Green Bay Packers fleece shrug. Even though I'm the daughter of a college basketball coach, I'm just not into sports. Quidditch is as close as I'll get. ;) So soon (tentatively, this spring) I'll be making available shrugs for football, basketball and baseball teams. The logo will be machine embroidered and the hood lining/sleeve cuffs will be the team colors. And what better day for a sneak peek than the big game?

New Year's resolutions...Madsylvania haz dem

One of them is to post more in my blog, Twitter and Facebook account. Oh and there is now a new Madsylvania LiveJournal site too. Another resolution is to list even more macabre designs. My muse has been tapping at my brain incessantly the last couple years and I need to create my new ideas soon.

I also planned to find an alternative style model to display my dark clothing designs for the longest time. I'm thrilled to introduce Samantha, who has modeled for several years and just so happens to be my beautiful daughter. :D

Got Snark?

Want to express your Anti-Valentine's Day sentiment? Snap up a Snarky Heart Plush Clipon at the Madsylvania Etsy shop and show some attitude. Six styles are available: Go Away, Piss Off, Bite Me, You Suck, Hate You and Get Lost. Shown in the photo are black with machine embroidered blood red text but if you prefer a different color felt and/or font, no problem.

Oh and Happy Friday the 13th! To celebrate, my hubby and I will be spending it with Morticia & Gomez. ;) We have tickets to the Addams Family musical tonight. Good creepy fun.
