Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Although I won't be having turkey this year, I'm still looking forward to a wonderful meal and good company. Unfortunately I won't be home to see family, but my fiance, Matt and I are going to make spicy burgers, baked beans, and cooked carrots (both with lots of brown sugar - yumm). It won't be our most traditional Thanksgiving, but it will certainly be one to remember - our first Thanksgiving alone in Alabama. We're both looking forward to our move back to Michigan, where we'll be able to celebrate Christmas with family (in the snow). I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with the people and food that you love!

This is a sweet little picture of my brother and me playing in the snow out at my grandparents. It reminds me of the good old days.

Farm Prints

These are a couple of small test prints I did for a larger print that I'm starting soon. The first is a collograph of a barn, and the second is a drypoint of a field. I love how the second one turned out, and I'm going to work from that image for the larger print.

Happy Halloween!

My fiance Matt and I carved pumpkins last night and roasted the seeds, instantly taking me back to childhood. I have so many fond memories of sitting on the back porch on a fall afternoon, with crisp maple leaves falling to the ground as I drew a face on my pumpkin. I love the pumpkin smell that explodes as you cut the top off, and the fantastic feel of slimy guts as you pull out the insides. I don't think I will ever get to old for pumpkin carving. I also look forward to roasting pumpkin seeds every year. I first recall tasting them many years ago in my Grandma's kitchen; a delicious salty snack. This year we roasted them with Cajun seasoning to add a little spice, and they were fantastic. So, I hope everyone has a wonderful Halloween weekend, and if you get trick-or-treaters, enjoy passing out the candy!
