Creativity: A Canvas

Warning: this is not my original work by any means - the original piece is by Stephanie Ackerman and I adore it.  I might even be in trouble for using the piece in this way - but I really loved the quote and look - I just wanted to turn it into something special and big enough for my daughter to hang on her wall when she goes away to college - this was one of the gifts I gave her for her 18th birthday.  I really liked the end result and so did Macey.

Halloween 2010

It's so fun to get dressed up for Halloween!!  This year friends of our had a party for kids and adults.  Steve and I went as Frankenstein and the Bride of Frankenstein and Xander a vampire.  Such fun!!  The other costumes were wonderful - I wish I would have taken more photos.  I probably would have but we had to leave pretty early because I started to feel ill - and sure enough I ended up with a nasty case of the stomach flu.  At least we were able to dress up for a little while!  Fun Fun!!
