1st 19th Day Miniature blog giveaway winner Morgan's prize, and wonderful eyeshadow too

Ok, so after speaking with Morgan by email and a little investigation through her blog about what sort of minis she collected, I'm finally through creating her 1st place winner prize!  She said she'd like a natural, nature-inspired potion set for her cute little nature-loving mini family.  Call them natural wizards of the "harm-none" sort :)  She really has wonderful and unusual modern dolls!  Her little man has a wonderful maple tree sweater on that inspired my potion set :)  I planned on doing the most elaborate set for the first place (first drawn from the hat) winner.  So I created a wild little potions floor trunk fit for any nature-lover.  I'd like to share some photos of it with you before I start my second place winner's set.  Here is Morgan's nature potion set, although the pictures are dark and fuzzy since I took them at night-the worst time for my picky camera:

Inside the trunk are the credos "Nurture Nature" and "Harm None" as well as three potions bottles:  a wild acorn capped bottle of berries that are unlabeled, a bottle of unicorn horns (labeled naturally shed), and a sculpted little green shoot coming out of a seed pod bottle that says "Help me grow" with a helping hand charm hanging from it.

As with all my items, and anyone who's bought from me can tell you, this is so much better in person because my pictures are never all that great.  I hope she likes it!

Ok, so I wonder if you all remember my wonderful and funny zombie giraffe?  I would like to introduce you to the lady who asked for him to be made, the lovely and talented Etsy artisan and etsy dark team member (search etsydarkteam without spaces on etsy to see all the work of the talented artisans on the dark team who make Halloweenish items of all kinds) mrsevils who makes the best eyeshadow I've ever used!  In honor of me, for making her the super fun zombie giraffe she decided to make me an eyeshadow custom made just how I wanted it, and named it after me :)  How fun is that???  Not only this, but she also added a link back to my store on the listing for my shadow in her store so I get free advertising as well.  Now her store is full of curiosities and interesting things and garners a lot of attention from the curious as well as her fans.  As a fan of zombies, she makes the wildest and coolest zombie barbies I've ever seen and they are really something to behold :)  She is a horror fan (hence wanting the zombie giraffe) and her creations are scary and beautiful at the same time.  But what I truly love and can't live without now is her eyeshadow.  It is the best I've ever seen!  Seriously, I worked all night one night and had my head in and out of the oven cooking polymer clay all night and let me tell you I was a fright!  Hot and uncomfortable as can be.  I was wearing her shadow and I was sure I was an icky mess by the time I quit at 3 in the morning.  I trudged to the mirror to survey the damage before washing up and was shocked to see this amazing shadow still perfectly in place without a crease or smudge in sight!  I gave some to my Mother who has trouble wearing store shadows due to allegies and she wore it without any harmful effects whatsoever.  She actually fell asleep by accident in it and woke up the next morning with it still perfectly in place-and she's a stomach sleeper!  Then it washes away effortlessly when you want to take it off.  Amazing :)  I'm hooked!  Well, here it is, the tarayvonne shadow :)   
I have olive skin that eats up lighter colors and I prefer the smoky eye look so this midnight blue is perfect for evenings out with my husband (should I ever get one lol). 

The listing is here:

And there are neutral colors as well for the less adventurous who prefer a less colorful palette:

As well as some that is quite good for upcoming holiday parties:

Please visit mrsevils wonderful and creative shop for eyeshadows that don't stop looking beautiful all day and night (and she may make you something custom if you ask nicely)  Anyway, I had to give her some blog love for making me my own shadow so I can look like a sultry vixen and steal my husband's heart once again after all these years :) 


  1. Ahhhhh! Adorable. I love them. I can't wait to get them to show to my family! Thanks so much.

  2. Thanks for the lovely shout out! I had so much fun making your eyeshadow for you and zombie giraffe is one of my most prized possessions!

  3. The Harm None potion set is fantastic!!! i can't wait to see what you come up with for me. I will try Mrs. Evils shadows, been looking for something that will stay on and not wash out. I can't wear mascara anymore so shadow has to do it all.

  4. Haha, I just saw I mistakenly put maple "leaf" down for what was on Morgan's doll sweater, what I meant was "tree". geez, whata dork.
