Happy Halloween........and Thank YOU!

BOO!



The above painting is one I did way back in 2000 but it's one of my favorite paintings I've done. It's on an oval piece of wood. Every year when I get it out for the season I always wonder why I don't paint more often.

I want to share a few things I've received recently, starting with a Halloween ornament that I won in a raffle over at EHAG blog.It's a great blog for all things Halloweeny.


It was made by Melissa Valeriote better known as the Holiday Queen.If you LOVE Halloween, you should definitely visit the EHAG site and Melissa's blog. They are both filled with absolutely wonderful Halloween art. Thank you Melissa for creating this cute little witch!

The next item is one I received from the Pink Artists Block Party Raffle.
I was thrilled when I opened this up. The artist Doris Arndt is such a wonderful mixed media artist and I couldn't believe that I actually was the lucky winner of a mixed media painting by her. Here's her website link also.

I have been so busy lately that I haven't posted in weeks. So many 'irons in the fire' as they say that I'm running in circles. Rather than go through the laundry list of things I've been up to, I will make a quick post today to thank TWO people,
Janine & Julie, who sent me an award WEEKS ago. This award is supposed to be sent on to 7 other people and I'm supposed to tell you 7 things about myself... Well,
I think I'll just take the lazy way out AND the politically correct way out and say that every blog I encounter is CREATIVE in it's own special way. So therefore, if you visit my blog consider yourself a recipient of this award! I know that some folks don't like awards, some folks have never received an award so here it is...
You've earned it if you've taken the time to create a blog and you spend any time at all visiting blogs and commenting on them!
As for the 7 things about myself...I'll post them as the week progresses in the fo…

Where have I been, you ask?

I have been so slack in posting since early Sept but I've kept busy so that's a good thing. The only thing I have completed to show you is some fabric collages I made for some blog friends: Becky, Marsha & Terri.
I posted a blog giveaway back in March and they were the lucky winners. I've heard from them all since they received their pieces and I believe they're quite happy with them. Terri even called me from PA to chat.
It was a delight to actually talk to someone that I've only exchanged blog comments with. We have quite a bit in common. Although I have to say that the more time I spend with creative people, whether in the blogosphere or in person I find that there is a common thread that runs through all of us women.
Last month I joined the North Suburban Needle Arts Guild and I feel like I have 'found my people'. I connected with a few 'like-minded' creative folks when we lived in GA through the pottery studio where I worked with ceramics a…

Reminder and update...

Since we are now into October, Breast Cancer Awareness month, I would like to remind you all to get your mammogram! Also please go to the site http://www.girl-gone-thread-wild.blogspot.com/2009/07/pink-artist-drawing-2009-prize-wheel.html to participate in the fabulous raffle that is going on. I can't believe the beautiful works of art that have been donated to the cause. All you have to do is send in a donation to be included in the raffle to win one of the wonderful items. The grand prize is the quilt which was made in individual squares by various artists, then sent to Monica who created the quilt. Go check it out, you'll be glad you did.
The update is concerning my etsy. I have finally uploaded ceramic items and will be adding more this weekend.
