I have been so darn busy and I'm so tired, but I wanted to post a few pictures of our fun time at this cool Pumpkin Patch near us. Hope you are all doing well! :)

Hubby took me on a surprise date yesterday and the surprise was 'Wicked'! We have both been wanting to see it and it's leaving LA soon. I am so glad we got to see it because it really is a fabulous show!!! If it's anywhere near you anytime, I highly recommend that you see it!!! Have you seen it yet? :)

Just a quick post tonight...I have to go to bed right after this! We got back last night from a 5-day trip to Reno to hang out with some good friends. I did get to make some art while I was there and I will post more about the trip very soon! For now, I will leave you with a picture of one of the two desserts I made for a bunch of people while we were there. It was SOOOOOOOOO yummy!!! :)

I was so happy to be able to play with a bunch of my art friends last Saturday at Julie's ( fabulous house. She is such a generous and wonderful hostess! I didn't get very much art done, but it was so fun to just play, socialize and be silly with everyone :)

How do I get the writing to not be all weird next to the image? This happens on my posts a lot and I don't know how to fix it! In the last post I did use some bold and different text, but that I meant to do. Also, for whatever reason, I cannot figure out how to title my posts! I'm sure that both of these things are easy to do, but for some reason I'm having major brain farts when it comes to figuring them out! Argh!


I will be e-mailing you shortly to get your snail mail address. A lot of you were interested in buying one of these if you didn't win, so here is the link for that... Thanks so much for playing and have a WONDERFUL day! :)

This is a mixed-media collage I made for a very wonderful family in our lives using a picture taken on a very special day. The top picture is of the 8 x 10 canvas completed and the bottom picture is how it looks matted and framed. I believe the dimensions of the completed piece are 16 x 20. For the record, I do not make my own mats and frames as some of you have thought in previous posts. I do pick out the mats and frames and put it together myself, but I do not make them myself. Have a great day! :)

My girls, mom and I went to IHOP today for a very late breakfast/very early lunch. My mom has been craving liver and onions (YUCK!!!) and couldn't really think of anywhere else near that has it. She has been pretty couped up lately since she broke her ankle 2 weeks ago. She and my 24-year-old nephew were in New York and she fell down the stairs to the subway on their last day there. It was already a bad day for her that day since it was the one year anniversary of my dad's death. She has a cast and crutches and will probably have it on at least 2 months. Her ankle starts hurting a lot if she doesn't have it propped up, so she really can't do much right now. This is really frustrating for her because she is someone who is always on the go. The cute pancake pictured is what my 2-year-old and I shared. My 1-year-old was sleeping, so she didn't get any. It was very tasty, but of course did not look quite like this one! :)
