Getting the spirit!

Yes, its just Thanksgiving week, I know. But I have been making some Christmas zentangles this past week. I haven't had alot of time to do much art lately but I have squeezed in a little zentangle time.

They are simple and fun. The last two I just used some Christmas stencils. I hope to get some more art time this week. I only have to work today and tomorrow.
Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers for my Aunt Addie. She did make it through the surgery. She had a plate and 2 pins put in her hip fracture. We are hoping she will make a complete recovery.
Yesterday was mine and Hubby's 9th Anniversary. I spent the night with my bestfriend on friday night. She lives a few countys east of us. We had a fun time. Then we did some shopping on saturday. I bought Hubby some blue jeans for Anniversary present and got him a card. When I got home he had bought me a beautiful mirror on a little stand that has a very loving quote on it. I also got a $50 gift card for Michaels,,,YES!!! And yesterday he bought me a Foot spa,,I have a bad bone spur in my right foot so it really helps ease the pain. That Man spoils me!
I hope every one had a great week-end! And I hope every one is ready to have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Praying for my Sweet Aunt Addie!

This is my Sweet Aunt Adelaide. She is 89 years old. I have always been very close to her. She is my Mom's oldest sister. Her and my other Aunt were spending a few nights with my Mom this week. She is almost completely blind and lives in an Assisted Living apartment. Well, yesterday she turned around in my Mom's bathroom and didn't have her walker close by and she fell very hard. They rushed her to the hospital by ambulance. She has a fractured hip.
Her son came out to were we live and had her taken by ambulance to a hospital in Nashville closer to where they live and she will probably have to have surgery today.
My Mom is so worried and upset that she was at her house when it happened.
We are all praying that she will be ok but at 89 this is so risky.
Please remember us in your thoughts and prayers.

Beautiful Week-end! And some completed Art Projects.

It really was a beautiful Fall week-end. Actually it had a touch of Indian Summer to it. The temps were in the low 70s and the sun was shining. We really haven't had too many pretty days this Fall but this week-end made up for that. I spent most of the week-end working in the yard.
I planted tulip bulbs and pansys at both my house and Moms. I also mulched leaves with the riding mower. We have so many trees and too many leaves. But I enjoyed the week-end and felt very Thankful for it.
I am in a Christmas pennent swap in my Yahoo group. I had to to make 11 pennants with the letter C and 11 with the letter E. I finished them this week-end. I can't wait to get the completed pennants back, I know they will be so pretty. Here are my letters.

The pictures are not the greatest as I forgot to scan them so I took a picture of them with my cell phone this morning. I also made a little hostess gift for the friend who is hosting the swap. Its a paper mache ornament.
Another wonderful occasion that I am Thankful for is that my Football team, The Titans, beat the 49ers yesterday. They are coming back finally!
I hope every one had a truly wonderful week-end. And have a lovely week too!

Halloween Party!

We had a great Halloween Party on friday night. It rained really hard but we were in my garage and under the deck so we all stayed dry. The first picture is of Daniel and I. He was suppose to be Jack Daniels and I am a Hippy!

What a handsome couple, huh? LOL! I dressed Mom up as Maxine(the old lady in the cartoons)
Isn't she a site for sore eyes! For a lady of 80 years old, she certainly know how to have a fun time! And next is my crazy Stepbrother. He is a redneck toothfairy!
Just some more fun pictures! The next ones is of Mom and my stepdad. He was Ratman and you can see his tail hanging out of the chair.
Some of the neighbors and kids dressed up.

And the girls had to dunk for some apples.

We all had a great time and its so nice to have such great neighbors too! I hope every one had a wonderful Halloween Week-end!

Scary Halloween deco- Image intense

Lady, the Brat Terrorist, wants you to come see all of our Halloween Decorations. We are having a costume party tomorrow night for a few of our neighbors. One of my neighbor friends, Michele, let me use a lot of her decorations that they didn't put out this year. So we are looking pretty spooky at our place.

I will do some more decorating tonight and tomorrow night. I am taking a personal day off tomorrow to make some goodies for the party. And I will make a lot of pics of the costumes.
I spent yesterday afternoon just wandering around the yard making pictures. I had a lot of things on my mind. Sad for my friend Rosemary at the loss of her Sweet Mother, and some other issues that have been overloading my brain. So just walking around and taking some pictures of Nature and Decorations helped me to relax.
Here is some of the last of my roses for the season. My son gave me this Rose bush for Mother's day this year and I Love it. Its a "knock-out" Rose. Our roses don't grow that well here in the south but these type of Roses do extremely well.
Lately I have been so into playing with Photoshop Elements. So I have been trying to take pictures of things that I can use as Textures in my collages. Here are some I took yesterday.

Also I did some Macro shots of my Mums to use as textures.

Also some shots of other plants that are still lingering. I Love seed pods. My perennial hibiscuses have an tremendous amount of hugh seed pods on it. Some of the host a home to a insect colony.

And some pretty fuchsia!

I could see a little bit of blue sky trying to pop out of the clouds. I Love the look of this almost bare tree with the clouds and blue behind it. Another texture, I do believe.

And last but not least, one of my favorite Maple trees between mine and my Mom's house. Isn't it gorgeous?
Well, I probably won't post again until Saturday or Sunday and hopefully with a lot of fun pics of my party! I hope every has a great Fall day!
