Scary talent...

When witches go riding,

and black cats are seen,

the moon laughs and whispers,

‘tis near Halloween.

What medium are you using to capture the spirit of the Season?...
It's scary how much talent there is out there!

Missing in action....

I've written before about how life gets crazy sometimes so I'm not even going there!

But I would really like to thank everyone that wrote me about my absence and tell you guys that everything is OK, just a little busier than normal.

I got an email this morning about a new swap at the Etsy Cottage Style Ning Group...a Christmas swap!...Don't miss it!!

Also, one of our Members, Jewel from Shabby Boutique is trying to raise funds for the National Children Cancer Society and because of her love for art and books, she is organizing a Pass Around Altered Book Project.
The theme, inspired on Jewel's and her Son Cody's touching story, is "Love and Hope for our little angels".

Her vision is one of 2 beautiful books. Each one with pages made by our talented members and artists. Once finished, the books will be offered for auction and all the proceeds donated to NCCS.
If you would like to donate your time and talent to this noble cause, please contact Jewel at
Shabby Boutique.

I can't promise when my next post will be, but I can promise that I'll do my best to be back very, very soon!

Until then, stay healthy and inspired!
