Happy Halloween

Our neighbor always has a little party on Halloween.  It starts about 5 PM and it gives the parents a chance to get the children to eat something before they head out to collect candy.  We always go over not only to eat but to see all the neighborhood kids before we are invaded by surrounding areas.  Headed out soon.

Glass Feathers

Tomorrow, October 29, we will be at St Andrew's United Methodist Church for their craft show.  It is going to be a beautiful day, mid 80s and lower humidity.  Hopefully, the wind will be at a minimum. 

Jim makes these feathers in lots of different colors.  If you see us at a show and only see one color, ask to see the other colors and sizes.

Another Card Class

Today is my regular card class with my group of friends.  They love to make Christmas cards so we start early and get enough done so they don't have to buy any cards.  Not sure if they will make this one today, but if not they will be making it next month.

Santa and the Flutes

Here is another card that is very similar to one of the cards we will be making in card class today.  Are you interested in having a card class for a group that you are a member of?  If you are interested in a card class leave me a comment.

Flute Choir Card

I mentioned that we do not have a show this weekend but I am having a card class.  The flute choir that is part of the community band I am in will be coming for a private class.  This is one of the cards they will be making.

Up Next

This piece reminds me of a particular art style that I can't think of the name right now.  Some people call it praire  style but I am thinking of a particular artist.  He designed a lot of the buildings at Florida Southern College.  I'll think of it later and add a comment. 

We are off this coming weekend from shows.  Sue will be having a card class though for a particular group of people.  Our next show will be at St Andrew's church in Brandon off Bloomingdale Ave.

One More Day at Cedar Key

Today is the last day of the Cedar Key Seafood Festival.  Come see us and our fellow guild members that are there.  It is always a fun show to do.  Lots of great food and drinks, even if you don't eat seafood.

Seahorses for Cedar Key

I bought so many beach theme dies this past year.  It is so appropriate not only for where I live, but also to send to relatives that live in the cold areas of the country.  It is always fun to say how warm is it where you live.  Our show is in Cedar Key this weekend at the Seafood Festival.

Island Hotel Cedar Key

This weekend we will be in Cedar Key for our craft show.  It is a two day show so if you can't make it on Saturday, we are there Sunday as well.  They are ready for the show even though a month ago they had a hurricane come through.  We and several of our crafting friends stay at the Island Hotel.  If you know anything about the hotel you will understand why I posted this particular glass piece.  Don't get it?  Just ask.

Cedar Key Crab

I really like the way this card turned out.  If I don't sell it at Keystone, I know for sure it will be gone at the Cedar Key Seafood Festival.  We are looking forward to this show and seeing our many crafting friends there.  Come on out and see us either this Saturday or Sunday.

Heron for Cedar Key

I know I have posted this picture before but since I posted a heron card recently, I thought it was time to post this one again.  The last time it was hanging on our display rack and was kind of at an angle.  This piece is huge and so beautiful.  When we re-modeled our back porch we tried to figure out a way to keep it ourselves but it didn't quite fit.  Hopefully it will find a good home.

Cedar Key Show

Our next show is in Cedar Key.  It will be this weekend, October 15 and 16.  They are ready for the show having cleaned up after the hurricane that went through about a month ago.  Come out and support the town and the great folks that live there.

Doesn't this die look like is what made for beach cottages?  The thing is, it wasn't.  It was made to be for a Christmas scene.  I cut the steeple off the church and the smoke and chimney off one of the houses.

Keystone Show

Today is our first craft show of the season.  I always have my best selection of cards at this show.  I have very few Halloween cards, so if that is what you are looking for, get there early.  Show starts at 9AM.

Crazy Halloween Cat

I don't make many Halloween cards because we only do 2 shows that are far enough away from October 31.  This one is made using the Tim Holtz crazy cat set and accessories.  There are accessories for so many occasions as you will see if you follow my blog at all.  I will have a selection of Halloween cards at the Keystone Church show in Odessa this weekend.
