Jeni's Annual Halloween Party 2010

Every year, Jeni, the oldest child of 6, throws an amazing Halloween party. We look forward to it all year long. We eat soup (mom's chicken wild rice, Rosie's U.P. Chili, Jeni's tomato basil) and carve pumpkins, play games and have fun.
Every year we get new friends coming to the party...
(Tessa and Camille. . .best salad ever)
and new babies...this is Noah's first Halloween!
(He's an owl).
Andy and Evie are our 2 redheads. (besides mom)
And even though I say it is "Jeni's Halloween Party" I actually mean Jeff and Jeni's party.
He is the man behind the miracle that Jeni is.
Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!

Jeni, my sister

I always wanted to be like Jeni. If she wore long socks, I wanted to wear long socks. If she got her haircut, I wanted my hair cut too.
Jeni was a mouse for Halloween in 1968, so I had to be the mouse in 1969. Just like Jeni.
 Even now, 40 years later, I still want to be like her. You should all come to her show and see how amazing she is. You will want to be like her too.

Lucky is the person who gets to spend the morning with Stephanie from STEPHMODO!!

YES...that is right I had the funnest time meeting Stephanie. I've been following her blog for a long time and am struck
by the elegance and delight that each post contains. 
I want to live in FRANCE and stay in their amazing
"La Maisonnette", a cottage on a hill in the France!!  
OK ANYWAY!!  I asked her if I could advertise the Autumn Art Show on her blog, Stephmodo, and she said yes and offered to help me take some pictures of the gourds to post. 
WOW I was honored to meet her.  She is as kind and elegant as her blog. She has a 3 week old little one and I got to hold him while Stephanie took pictures - That Was Awesome!!  Thank you Stephanie for your help and your inspiration.  I am so glad to be your friend.
Here are some of the pictures she took...
 This little witch on JACK belongs to my dear friend AMB.
It is one of my first creations -
I thought it would be fun to include it in the mix!! 
GOURDS for sALe...

OK - aren't they fun - I have to say that they are starting to run our family out of the house so they are excited to go to the show and hope to go home with some of YOU!! 
Let me know if you have any questions. 
AGAIN - i WONDER AS i LOOK AT The clock and the digital LIGHT SAYS "12:32am" "WHy do wE dO It???" 
i GUESS THE answER has to be... because it makes Us SMILE!! 
hAVE  A GReat dAY!!!

COUNT DOWN 5..4..3..2..1..Yahoo the show is almost here!!

We hope you all come and spread the word about the show... it will be SPOOKTACULAR!!! 
My dear friend, Julie Mateson, (who is so smart and has her own blog -( helped me with our postcard for this show - WOW didn't she do a great job. 
My goal is to learn PHOTO SHOP and ILLUSTRATOR - we will see - I need to duplicate myself to do all that I need to do.  I think many of us feel this way!! - So anyway -
Thank you JULIE - I love it!!! 
Can't wait for the SHOW TO BEGIN....HEE HEE HEE!

May The Road Rise Up to Meet You!

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
May God be with you and bless you:
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.

May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.

I Love St. PAtrick's DaY - MoST because it is

So here is wishing you all a "pinch free"day
Hope you all have your green on 

ps here are some of the NEW things that will be at the show

8 more days!!! wow start the count down....
