An appropriate time of year for something truly scary to happen.  My computer hard drive is corrupted so we're off to get me a new computer.  Kind of a bummer you get so attached to your work set up & I've had a lot of good times with this computer.  You know how it goes there's always some sort of learning curve & a couple files that get lost in transferring everything to your new computer.  Finger Crossed.  Seems like every 3 years or so there's a BIG computer glitch.
(Do they really make our lives easier... Hmmm?)

Look at these!

Antonio was in Denver a couple weeks ago & took a picture of these intricately carved pumpkins.  Mine won't look anything like this but it's something to aspire too!
 * Love how some feel very Dia de Muertos & Mexican paper cutout- Wow!

Halloween Party!

Luca's school Halloween party is this afternoon.  I'm out the door in just a couple minutes.  Lovely fall day here today.  I keep looking out my window to see showers of falling leaves. (which basically means weekend raking but... it's pretty)

I still get excited about the holidays & having a child I find it only reinforces my sense of play & wonder.  Was up late last night making some ghost brownie bites. (yep, peanut free) 

I've also prepared a little craft to do with the class- pom pom bats. 
Bought some plain rings & bracelets to attach them to.

Hope you have a fun fall weekend!

We Live in a Tree

This is a baby book I worked on that gives me a fall feeling.

Are there leaves left on the trees in your neighborhood?

Hi there...
Did you have a good weekend?  I did, I'm still thinking about the delightful performance I saw Saturday night at the Kansas City Ballet- Alice in Wonderland.  My friend Gigi (long time friend/ like a sister to me)  took me & it was something I will remember for years to come.  Such a quirky, whimsical and visual story with the combination of live music & dance. Truly magical!  The image I posted was a little thank you I made for Gigi for taking me.

The set design & costumes for the performance was so clever & added to the sense of wonder & excitement.

As I mentioned a while ago I started keeping a sketchbook again.  This is something I use to do religiously but fell out of habit.  I've been surprised by how much I'm enjoying jumping back in. (it's actually relaxing)  This works well to post on the blog as so much of what I'm working on now I can't show or talk much about until it's released into the market.  Sounds way more secretive & glamourous than it actually is!

Call of the Wild

Happy Friday!
Some art from my Call of the Wild pair puzzles.

Not sure why I always end up trying to add a snake?? I'm not a fan of them at all!

Spooky Garlands...

OK, so maybe they're not too spooky but they are cute!
I made these out of felt to hang around the house this time of the year.

Fall Frolic

Thinking this could be really nice printed on corduroy.  I see it on a girls fall jumper.

A new month & one of my favorites.  I love all the color, the big blue sky & then the grand finale at the end of the month- Halloween!  It's fun to see the seasons change I think if I lived someplace without the 4 distinct seasons I'd really miss it.
