Day #9 of InkTober and Preptober!

Friday nights during the month of October are about baking pink glittered brains inside my clay oven until midnight.  I fill witch’s cauldrons with sparkling green goo bubbles.  What would a witch stall at a market place sell right now?  Well, eyeball soup and brains on a silver platter.  Everything on an inch scale orContinue reading “Day #9 of InkTober and Preptober!”

We’re All Fans Today

I think I made a new friend by the end of yesterday.  It was pink and in a bottle.  This wasn’t the kind of spirit I wanted to drink but it stopped the gurgle.  Well, no matter what the day we must continue with our goal this month in prompts.  I hope you enjoyed myContinue reading “We’re All Fans Today”

Day #6 of InkTober – Word Prompt Is Spirit

The middle of the week is here and I started to laugh when I saw the prompt for Day # 6.  The word spirit didn’t bring to mind anything spooky, instead it conjured up the image of a flask of hard liquor.  Yes, it’s been that kind of day and I’m not a drinker.  IContinue reading “Day #6 of InkTober – Word Prompt Is Spirit”

Baby Steps

Hump day is the perfect time to provide resources for those who are lost and don’t know what to write about next.  Today, there are several resources out there and fellow authors but the danger is consuming the information and not getting anything done.  After meeting many people who say they want to write aContinue reading “Baby Steps”

My Thanksgiving dinner will be on display along with some fantastical creatures. I might evenContinue reading “Outdoor Event – September 18th”

Monday Debates

The middle of September means Halloween decorations can go up right?  Well, this was the big debate that happened during a zoom group call.  They were adamant that decorations shouldn’t go up before the 1st of October.  The group split into two.  Those who said the start of fall was symbolic and they were okayContinue reading “Monday Debates”

Foodie Friday

The end of the week arrived in the blink of an eye after Labor Day, and I find myself more worn out than a regular week. Taking those few extra moments to relax over the weekend and get in some cat naps meant cramming everything into a few less days. I wrote about fall changes,Continue reading “Foodie Friday”

Fall Is In Session!

The school year has officially started and summer ended after Labor Day. We are two months away from NaNoWriMO and my mind is on Preptober. The question is, am I going to do Preptober and Inktober? I bought my ink pad over the weekend to give it a try. I thought I would follow theContinue reading “Fall Is In Session!”

Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day! The last day of the Minnesota State Fair is here but I had my fill of fried food on a stick. My long weekend was filled with running errands and accidents with a hot glue gun. After watching other artists create miniature models out of Amazon boxes, I was inspired to createContinue reading “Happy Labor Day!”

Welcome September!

Welcome September!  This weekend means an extra day to get ready for my next show.  I have to check my book inventory this week to see if I need to order more.  My pen will be in hand with some new art pieces.  Yes, my face will light up like other creators when you stopContinue reading “Welcome September!”

Countdown Is On!

The countdown was going all week and we’re one day away from the Minnesota State Fair!  The crowds are waiting for the gates to open and my belly is fasting until I can fill it with all the fair food I can find.  It’s a day of indulgence and the excuse of “walking the caloriesContinue reading “Countdown Is On!”
