Boo!



I'm starting to get ready and geared up for Halloween. I made this kit for a gift flood I'm involved in. I'm hoping to jump start the recipient with her treats for the kids.

I think it's my favorite holiday...have you ever sat outside in the dark shadows of a warm night and listened? Especially right now. The crickets are in full song and the critters are prowling.

Several years ago...and occasionally even now, I sometimes can't sleep...if it's after 2 AM, I'll venture outside and sit on my porch and just listen. A few times I took a BW film camera and had a field day playing around with night shots...but instead of helping me relax and ready myself for the covers again, it woke me up. I ended up watching the sun rise, making the work day somewhat unpleasant. Which reminds me...it's almost tomorrow here on the east coast and it's not Friday.

Here's a close-up of the card. I'm doing a workshop in October. This is one of the cards we'll be making.



Cheers and...creepy night to all!

Yummy card! Ha ~ who wouldn't want a tasty treat! Love how you made the spider paper ~ I'm all for spiders as long as they stay outside (or on paper)!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
HOP START
Oh, guess what else is going on...
IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMER.
IT'S MY ANNIVERSARY.
