What are you all doing to celebrate? Trick-or-treating? Handing out candy? Having a party? Taking your kids trick-or-treating? Dressing up in costume? Samhain festivities? Watching scary movies?
HAPPY 21st BIRTHDAY to my cousin Sally (greenhoodloxley)!
HAPPY 4th BIRTHDAY to my nephew Theodore!! We'll see you soon!!!
Matt has made tons of Super Mario props to decorate Brian's (foxmagic)'s house with tonight. Through clever use of our wide format printers, foam core, and Google Images, he's made tons of fun stand-ups. He has his Luigi costume, and Brian is going to be Mario. Ought to be pretty great! Matt's going to post pictures, for sure!
We bought a bunch of candy, but we need to buy more. Every year we get so many trick-or-treaters here, we've run out of candy each time. Every kid in the four-county area comes to Celebration to trick-or-treat, lol.
Just got off the phone with Carrie (tigerpixieart) - she's here on vacation and is going to bring her kids over to trick-or-treat - assuming it doesn't RAIN. Unfortunately our weather forecast is calling for rain, wind, and thunderstorms, =P We're getting the edges of Tropical Storm Noel, who's right north of Cuba right now (which is actually not that far from where we live). Right now it's sunny outside, but sprinkling a little.
I'm going to make some mulled wine today, to be festive. I know nobody will drink it but me, lol, but I want to make it, and it makes the house smell all Autumn-y and makes it feel like Autumn (despite being in the 80s with a tropical storm outside, hehe).
Ah, almost forgot my new painting (me, forget to plug one of my paintings? No way!):
"Sea Beacon" is the name - out on a dark and stormy night at sea - a mysterious beacon - a winged maiden of the waves holds lanterns above the water - giving hope and direction to the lost ship on the horizon. A haunting yet hopeful painting, I spent a lot of time with this one and I am so happy with how she turned out. She's a big painting and very, very detailed - measuring 16"x20" - original acrylics on sheet of canvas. This original painting is up on eBay starting at just ONE PENNY with no reserve for a 10-Day auction ending the evening of Friday, November 9th at 7:39PM Central Time. You can see it below - click on the sneak-preview picture to see the whole painting:
