Thankful Times

I am excited about Thanksgiving this year!  I'm thankful for my family being together, for traditions, for turkey and trimmings, and a long nap after dinner!
I’m carving (ha) out more time for creating over the holidays.  I took some inspiration from my friend Kari McKnight Holbrook who *only used supplies she had on hand for projects. (*Ok, mostly). 
The Thankful banner I made using an old Frank Lloyd Wright calendar, letter stencils, metallic copper pen and a Sharpie, a hole punch and some ribbon.  I used complimentary ribbon to make little bows and added vintage buttons. 

I am thankful for so many, many things.  Family, friends, adventure, gel medium…

How about you?

Dia de Los Muertos is a beautiful thing!

 Coming up!  Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead is a beautiful thing!  Join us at SmittenDust, the weekend of November 1& 2 with Shirley K. Bentsen and Jane Reiter.  (I can already hear the laughter!) 

I love the beauty and honor of this event.  I wish we had something like Day of the Dead every year (and I’m not talking about Halloween).  Check out these events.  Come for the fiesta on Sunday, be a part of our creative community!

Please check out the tab "Day of the Dead" for more details and registration info.

Tammy's Delish Hot Cider

OMG!  If you couldn't make it to the Jen and Kari show last week, not only did you miss great fun and cool techniques and art, but you sadly missed the #MostAmazingCiderOnEarth!!

I wish I had a "Scratch and Sniff" app, because I would post the link for you!  Instead, Tammy has so generously shared this fab family recipe with us.
