It's been awhile


It's been awhile since I've blogged...life has been moving at a much quicker pace lately. My Autumn Tree ACEO series, numbers 1 - 4 have been pretty popular, so I'm working on adding a few more to my shop. I absolutely LOVE making autumn trees. The possibilities for leaf colors are just endless...deep burgundy, orange, gold, purple...don't get me wrong, I love the green leaves of summertime. But, there is just something about this time of year that makes you want to snuggle up in a warm blanket with a cup of tea...or coffee in my case. The days are getting shorter and cooler. It's actually comfortable to play outside and you don't have to worry (so much) about being eaten alive by mosquitoes.
And Halloween is coming up...that enchanting, spooky, magical holiday where for one day it's okay to pretend you're someone else. I'm in the midst of getting some ATCs done for a Halloween swap that I'm hosting. Here's an extra card that I made in honor of this fun holiday... It is available in my etsy store.

The old, run-down house on the edge of town was a popular topic of conversation among town folk. The house had been abandoned for years and fallen into dis-repair, but for some reason, eerie lights often appeared in the windows and ghostly shadows could be seen floating across the walls. Of course, no one dared go near the old place to investigate the strange occurances...especially on Halloween night.

i love your trees. i must admit that they are one of my favorite collage subjects as well. i've never done any halloween pieces but yours make me want to give it a try!

I agree with Julie, love your trees, it would be a good subject for a collage piece, or even a kinda like a piece that goes from one season to the next, from bare tree to a full bloom tree. I can see it now..lol.

I love fall,too....this summer made me a total indoors person believe it or not. It was just too hot here to be outside much. I'm looking forward to fresh air, sweatshirts, apple pie, and the smell of cool breezes and falling leaves.
