Pumpkin King's Night Out [Sep. 4th, 2005|09:03 pm]

I love how it turned out, this is such a cool painting....click below to see....

"Pumpkin King's Night Out"



My first Halloween painting of the season! May there be many more to come....

Not tonight though. I have an awful headache and I am going to take the rest of the evening off. Lol, what's left of it at least.

I went to SuperTarget today! I don't get out much, lol, so that was an adventure for me. They had a huge sale on vegetarian-meats and I stocked up on tons. I made a taco salad out of fake-ground-beef, black olives, onions, tomatoes, lettuce and my Margarita's salsa, it was really really good. There's a little left over, I might have that for dinner.

The other day I received my Dark Candles order on the same day I received my BPAL order - I have been in scent heaven lately! Darn you BPAL for all your new Limited Edition scents! I snagged bottles of Samhain, Dia de los Muertos, and Devil's Night. I also grabbed imps (sample sizes) of a bunch of the new regular catalogue scents. I'll probably do another order with some of those POE scents too! Argh! I can't help it! I almost bought the "Pumpkin Patch" set, but decided to "go in" with four other people to split it into smaller bottles and divide it up amongst us, hehe. I can't order all the perfumes, after all......

Anyways, I'm going to get some aspirin, some herbal tea, and relax a little. Good night all, enjoy the new painting.

I absolutely love the girl. She's the most gorgeous one I've seen of all your paintings.

Thank you so much! I'm very happy with her too - she deserves her own painting one of these days, hehe.

Painting is cute!!
Hope your head feels better.

Have you tried the clove or autumn in the Dark Candles? Are they a heavy scent even when not lit?

Thank you Deana!

I've been getting various sampler sized votives of Dark Candles - they are all pretty yummy! Good strong scents, even when not lit. I can't recall if I've tried any of their clove scents, but I picked up a bunch of their new Halloween Scents - yummy-yum-yum!

Also I LOVE their "Crypt Moss" candle - an amazing dry mossy smell - I just love that. Their "Amber Velvet" is pretty darned impressive too. So far I've liked everything I've smelled, really.

I'd suggest getting their votive sampler pack - you can pick 12 (mix&match) votives for $14.99 - excellent way to try them all.

Their website says 21-45 business days, which is usually about right. The quickest I've ever gotten an order is 30 days, I think!

Thank you Heather! Lol - I thought it was a fun name, hehe.

Actually for clouds I mostly use my fingers instead of brushes to paint - that makes it all look soft and well blended. But it makes my hands pretty messy! ;)

That's funny, I made taco salads for lunch today. HY-vee had those taco salad shell things in the bakery so I bought some.

That is funny! I don't think I've made a taco salad in years. I was just craving it, and looking for an excuse to use up some lettuce and somehow involve my Margarita's salsa.....

I'm feeling a lot better now - I think it was just the case of too much painting/computer = eye strain, lol.

Re: hey jas!

Love to see it!

Oh! Well, my book isn't released until October 9th, but when it comes out it will probably take about 2 weeks or so to get to Ireland. Three weeks at the most!

Love to see! Just send it to my email =) I'm a little backlogged right now, but don't worry - I get to all my emails eventually ;)
