Done at Last! Nature Album!

Check another project of the list!  I started this nature paper bag album two years ago on a stormy August night and I finally finished it!  I know this post  has nothing to do with Halloween, but I just wanted to share.  I would probably do a few of the earlier pages differently, but I do like the finally result.  I love to add lots of "stuff" to my projects!  What do you guys think?  Anyone else working on non-holiday projects right now?

Halloween Swap

Hello friends!  I just participated in a really cool Halloween bag swap over at The Bloggerette Sorority.  My partner was Karen at Karen's Monday Musings .  She sent me an awesome bag filled with some wonderful crafty and candy goodies.  Thanks again Karen!  The second bag was what I made for Kimberly at ArtJoyStuff .  Go and check all three blogs out!  Have a great week fellow bloggers!

Na - Da Farm Event

I had such an amazing time at Na - Da Farm this past weekend.  This was the first time I have ever took an overnight road trip by myself and it was a lot of fun.  Catching up with an awesome Dean Koontz book, eating peanut M & M's, and watching Ghost Adventures without the hubby's skeptic comments, who could ask for more!  I also met some really cool ladies and I finally got to meet the ever most sophisticated Alison from The Polo House .  I registered for three classes during my time at the farm.  Friday night was the first class.  It was called Avenues to an Artful Business, hosted by two amazing and creative women, Jeanne Oliver and Jennifer Rizzo.  The class was very inspiring and they both offered great tips on how to start your own etsy store, web business, and blog.  Saturday was my creative day.  The two classes I took were Vintage Art Journal and Mixed Media Art, both taught by Jeanne Oliver.  Both classes were absolutely wonderful!  Thank you so much for your encouragement and kind words Jeanne!

Hi everyone!  I thought I would share some great Halloween images for you to use for your Halloween artwork! I just love Halloween photos from long ago.  There is a creepiness to old Halloween pics that is really cool.  Enjoy!
