Ms Vanessa Valenciahttp://afancifultwist.typepad.com/a_fanciful_twist/2009/08/a-hauntingly-magical-celebration-revealed.html is hosting a Halloween Celebration Oct 17!
I am so excited to be apart of it!
I have many ideas still haunting my head from
years past! The lovely laser stenciled haunted haus from a local artist waiting be be on a spooky garland. The MARTHA Stewart's mini pumpkin chandelier from ages ago.
One of those hollowed out white pumpkins with spookiness inside.
Not too scary I like the whimsy side more especially with my little ones. who wants to be creeped out. Definitely by your parents! I can't even take them into MICHEAL'S craft store now! Well I'll say I stopped last month due to the gruesome animated creatures. NOT one of my children likes it. I have to go in and avoid 1/2 the store or just go with out them(very very rare). Oh I digress on to the what I have haunting me creatively!
Many new little captured witchies. I made one for the 1st Sinister Sweet swap and then for the blog. These are a pair I had on see tutorial I did last year for Kari Ranstrom ArtsyMamahttp://www.artsymama.blogspot.com/ here on flickrhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/52895107@N00/sets/72157607793003603/ Kari has a lovely BLOG YEAR OF COLOR just for all of us artist learning from other FABULOUS ARTISANS. She is hosting this years Sinister Sweet swap therehttp://artsymama.blogspot.com/2009/08/its-back.html.

and need to get back to the kitchen/livingroom/laundry room where things are amuck! I am recovering from PARTY/Softball weekend!
My little 8 yo dd the major Catcher! who knew!
It takes a bit for me I know its WEDNESDAY FOR GOODNESS SAKES. Would you belive I treated myself to a just the front of the home cleaning last friday and it's a total disater now? Really every room that was cleaned DONE totally a mess. I have to kick it into gear and get my http://www.flylady.net/ shiney sink and 15 min declutter boogies going! If you haven't checked her out! You will love it. I think for the CREATIVE SOUL it's just what I need. Simple Routines so I have LOADs of time to PLAY!(that's whats in my mind anyway.) I'd rather Create and play than clean and declutter oh yea and play on the computer shop read okay anything really. Don't get me wrong I do like a spotless home but who has the time? and did I mention ours is almost 60 years old?(there's no keeping out the dust). opps I hear a hoppy ball bouncing and something metal? glass? glass and metal? twins 6 and 8 busy right now! Oh thank goodness nap time comingsoon!

So for now until I get the right photo it is Fresh Eggs and a Fresh Day. I am so greatful for a Fresh Day. It can start anytime of the day. The decision to Start Fresh, have a mulligan(golf term),Renew your spirit it happens in an instant. I am finding more and more it's my ablity to focus on my outcome and work through the veil I am under to find what I AM GRATEFUL FOR. I LOVE MY LIFE AND LIFE LOVES ME. Listing what I am grateful for always helps me turn things around. I am trying to teach that to my children. It will be a long journey and one I will relish and delight in. Have a Fresh egg along with your renewed FreshDay...sending you love my friends...

I have used a valentines I made last year as the base the newly wedded couple with lace and love around them. I then added a photo of a rose in my garden...4th of July to the right hand corner, with sweet photocopied ephemera from my collection roses and the little children. the words"will you be my queen of Hearts?" are from a newly found vintage valentines from the 1930's. I was so excited to find this stash. I thought I only had postcards and hadn't realized there were many valentines in this little cigar box!
