Halloween Is Only A Click Away!

I apologize for my absence lately. I have a number of awards to acknowledge, and some recipes to share, but we are going to making another trip back to Rochester this week, and in the interim, I've been taking my Mom to various doctor's appts.  I'm getting a lot of waiting room reading done!

I have been sharing some new Halloween treats, and realized that not everyone follows, or maybe doesn't know about my other blog.   If you want to try and get into the Halloween mood a bit early, just click "here", and you'll see my two new OOAK's.

A VERY cool VooDoo Doctor, hand sculpted by Dennis Haynes out of his Runamuck Studio,

And an equally delightful Vampire & his pet, come to life by the hand of Mandy Broome of Fiddlestix Studios

Such diverse styles, and both so much fun!!

Full photos are on my Halloween blog! I hope to see you there!

Wishing you a delightful evening!!

This is SO cool!!!

Sharpen your art pencils, make sure that your pens have ink, and sign up for the 2010 Sketch Book Project! 

Thousands of completed sketchbooks will tour the country, and then find a permanent home in the Brooklyn Art Library.  What an awesome project!

You can get more details by clicking on the image, either here, or later, on my sidebar.

The Sketchbook Project: 2011

Have fun!!

What Fun!

I was taking a few minutes to start browsing, and I was immediately led to what sounds like a fun event!

If you are a fan of the book and/or movie Practical Magic, then you should check this out!

Some women have gotten together and are hosting a Practical Magic Blog Party on September 25th!  Sadly, I won't be here to take part, but you all can get in on the fun. (If nothing else, go look at the beautiful blog that they set up just for this event!) 

You can click on this, or the button on my sidebar!  Have fun!

AAAAaaaaaaHHHHHHH CHOUuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!!!

Cough, Cough, Cough!!  No. .no cold. .dust, just lots and lots of dust everywhere!  Look at what comes rolling in when your blog goes untouched for weeks now.

We had to stay longer than originally scheduled. .they decided to add a bunch of tests that Hubs hasn't had in a while, and since this is their busy season, it was only one a day instead of them all being done within a couple of days.

It was worse because we had to stay over the weekend, when the clinic isn't open. One gets so tired of going out to find something to do, and that motel room gets smaller and smaller.

And now we get to go back next week, but hopefully, that will only be a three day trip total, then we'll be home until the first of September, and then again in the middle of the month. .

I'm so far behind in posting and reading, I may never catch up, but I wanted to let everyone know how much I appreciate everyone hanging in here with me.  I truly miss being in touch with you.  Hopefully, I'll get some breathing room soon. .in the meantime, can someone hand me a broom?  A huge industrial shop vac would be more efficient, I guess.

Wishing everyone a beautiful day!!
