No Pictures and Gnaughty Gnomes.

I haven't posted in awhile.  My batteries in my camera died and I just finally replaced them, which means I need to take pictures of artwork, not only what I've been working on, but more importantly, the lovely items I've received from my blog land friends.  I am very excited to show you!
In recent news and events, a gnaughty gnome has been discovered sucking the battery juice out of my car, to power his television in the evenings.  I found a solid cure for this....cookies.  I baked cookies and made a cookie trail to the backyard from my vehicle.  Set up a nice little gnome house and a 9-volt battery.  He seems quite satisfied.  (by the way, does anyone know why gn makes an "n" sound?)

I will get camera happy and get back to posting.  I have some fun ideas for November and I'm trying to motivate myself to blog more.  
Hope you are all well and feeding your gnomes cookies.  

What are you dressing up as for Halloween?
Blessings to you.
Have a safe and magical Halloween!!!!

Bloggy Blessings!

This past week has been a blessing of the bloggy sort.
I did the Mermaid Art Swap with Cameron that I mentioned in a previous post.
This week, I received this most glorious and gorgeous mermaid, that is now hanging in my front room, along with two other pictures that I have from her.  :)  I love collecting art from amazing artists.
 the name of this mermaid is Ancient Symbols.
She is magical. 

I showed a glimpse of my mermaid drawing last time, here is the entire picture.  

If you check out Cameron's blog, you will see all of the gorgeous mermaids that she sent out, as well as all of the ones she received.  She is now swimming in a sea of glorious mermaids.  

Another exciting Bloggy moment from this week was a meeting.
I was able to meet up with two very spectacular women who happened to be nearby for an art retreat.  
Daniele and Kristin :)
Daniele, Kristin, moi and my hub.

 these two were sooo much fun and had such enthusiasm and spark, which always shows through on their blogs, but the amazing energy that comes from them in person, is tremendous and wonderful.  I am so, so happy that I was blessed to meet them both.  
 a pic of the yummy foods and drinks that we had together at my most 
favorite artsy restaurant.
 sorry for the glare....geesh, I love McMenamins.
ahhh...time to say goodbye, but so excited that we can keep in touch via blogs.
We had such a great time together and it was very much a blessing to meet them and spend the evening with them.  They warmed and brightened my soul.  Thank you so much!!  
Many hugs to you!

P.S.  Daniele made me a very wonderful gift and I just realized I forgot to get a pic of it, so I will do that and post it tomorrow.  :)  Thank you Daniele, I love it!!! Yay!
Hope your week has been filled with blessings and good energies too.
