Here are 2 of my art projects that i finally finished!!! I'm really happy about them, just a few tweaks here and there, but they are done! The one is a 5x7 canvas ( a birthday gift from audrey, thank you!) and is acrylic, the other a standard art card, all colored pencil, but i used some "glitter paint" if you will, to fill in the sea! So we will "see" if they sell, cheers everyone and Happy Monday!
So i finally had time to enjoy a great day on Saturday, by saying goodbye to my summer plants and saying hello to fresh autumn annuals! It was a cloudy day, but still warm for South Carolina about 82 degrees, but there was a cool breeze and it was a good day to get work done outside. As I was pulling out my sweet potato vines to make room for some mums, i couldn't believe what was attached.....actually potatoes!!! :) There was bunches of them, i wasn't sure if they were edible so i ended up throwing them out, but i thought it was neat because it was the first time that every happened to me!! I then added my kale, some pansies, and some pumpkins, and of course my fall wreath ( which i got a Walmart for 10 bucks!!) So i now, finally, I feel like fall is in the air..........

Hi everyone!! I just want to let everyone know the story behind the pictures..My grandad is not doing well, so i decided to send sketch a picture of him back in his college days. He sent that black and white picture to me when I was in college,that represented him in one in picture and the other is one of my memories of him...just sketches, but with love behind it, wish i could be with you...my heart is with you grandad..
The others are new sketches...the one canvas is an update from the old....let me know what you think...

It's not Halloween yet, but I'm super excited for October to be here! It represents so many good memories and the beauty of fall. I can't wait to get my first department 56 Halloween collection up, I'm still deciding where to put it, but I'll figure it out! In addition my almost hubby will be having a birthday this month as well as my mom, which i mentioned in an earlier post. All in All , it's a happy time full of tricks and treats.....in my mind, mainly treats:)
