Cereal Killer

I love this Halloweenie time of year, because basically it is how the inside of my head looks all year. You know ... witches, demons, ghosts, evil fae ... the main creatures of urban fantasy (my favorite genre). 

My super cool artist cousin, Ryan, has FREE Halloween coloring pages on his site. (You won't steal them or use them unaccredited, right? Right. I knew you wouldn't.) He puts these up every year and you can download them and print them and make your kids and adult kids happy for at least a solid hour or so. I always find myself coloring a few of them.

The first year he made these coloring pages available, he had a contest. And guess who won FIRST PLACE?!

Frankenstein likes
long walks on the Miami beach,
virgin daiquiris, and his dad.

If you said my name, you are wrong. I got Honorable Mention. I WAS ROBBED.

I don't think he is having a contest this year. Which is a shame, because this year I would nail it. 

Meanwhile, go to his site, print them out, and either show Ryan on his Facebook page, or send them to me and I'll make sure Ryan gets to see them, too. Maybe. If he admits that I should have won first place and a pony.

Ryan is actually the person who inspired today's Halloween Embroidery. He gave me the phrase, "You can't spell 'slaughter' without laughter!" (And perhaps you are wondering why I caved and used double punctuation marks? That is because it is Dame Toadstool's birthday and I am generous like that.)

you can't spell "slaughter" without laughter.
RIP Lucky Charms, Corn Pops, Froot Loops, Trix.
Happy Halloween!


  1. I love your embroidery so much. I have a "you can't spell manslaughter without laughter" t-shirt, and it is my favorite thing ever.

  2. I loved your Miami Beach Franky. I'm sorry you didn't win, but you were mentioned honorably.


  3. This is amazing. (wouldn't expect anything less)
