Halloween Artist Wanted ~ New Halloween Art Group

We just recently learned that Deborah Sweigart has passed away after fighting a battle with cancer.  We are very saddened by this news.  Day was the inspiration for so many Halloween Artists who began their careers by selling on Ebay way back when Ebay was really an auction site.   She was the founder of HA31, an Ebay art group and ran for many years.  She selflessly gave to all of us her time, encouragement and the opportunity for our art to be seen by the public through Halloween

We are also saddened to find that the website is now unavailable.  I don't know the details, if her family intends to put it back up or not but for now it seems it is just offline.  Day personally encouraged Ron and me and was a great inspiration in our continuing to produce our art and belong to this beloved Halloween Ebay Art Group.  We've met many Halloween Artists as a result of belong to the group, some of those members have become quite successful.  So it is in "Loving Memory" that we are considering starting another web site to be open to all of the Halloween Artists members to join together and continue Day's endeavor to have a group that supports, encourages and enjoy our love of Halloween!

Myself, Ron Byrum and Heather Millott of Witch Hollow Primitives have purchased the website   We are probably a little late this season to make much of an impact but as we all know Halloween Artists work on Halloween year round.  We will let anyone who is interested know when we have the site up and running.  In the meantime, if you are a Halloween Artist that was a member or even those who weren't, we would like to know how many Halloween Artists would be interested in joining our group.  If you are interested or have any comments you would like to share you can email me, Sherry Byrum at or Heather at

Byrum Art's Newest Items for their Halloween Collection for 2013 are avilable on Ebay now!

New Page 1
It's getting close to Fall with all the sights, sounds and smells of Fall and Halloween.  For us its time to be working overtime in our artist's workshop creating new designs, Ornaments and Decorative Items for our customers.  This has always been my favorite time of year.  Starts off with County Fairs, that first crisp, cool air blowing and the leaves starting their spectacular display of colors.   If you happen to see a Red Cardinal this time of year its likely it will look strange as they shed their old feathers and grow beautiful new red ones.  Candy apples, pumpkin pies, maple syrup, candles, and all the beautiful colors of chrysanthemums.   Also the little creatures are busily preparing for winter, chipmunks scampering about collecting nuts and sunflower seeds, and the deer are changing colors so they are camouflaged better.  We've had a Doe and her fawn visiting us for a month now and you can see in the photo below how she's starting to turn gray blending in with the woods and the fawn is still very much a brownish with spots.
So let me show you the beginning of our Halloween 2013 Season hand made and hand painted decorations we are offering this year.  Already listed on  Ebay, be sure and fly by and check some out.
All of these items are up for auction on Ebay right now!  Thanks for L@@king and we hope to see you on Ebay!
