Halloween Traditions and a Thank You!


As I've said before, I think it's very important to step outside the studio to "recharge the creative battery", so to speak.  This week it meant a visit to one of our favorite Fall haunts: The Pumpkin Farm.  From the time T-man was 3 months old, sitting on the haystacks and taking a family photo has become a Halloween tradition.

I can't believe how big my little man is getting!



Another Autumn tradition is sending a Halloween care package to my brother Ronnie who is away at college.  Every year I paint a Halloween-inspired box then my mom and I fill it with all sorts of goodies.  Ronnie is super-duper smart and works super-duper hard... he definitely deserves some treats from home!

 
I would like to finish this post with a heartfelt 'thank you' to all of my blog friends who have been so supportive of my 30 in 30 for 30 project - your kind words and encouragement are so motivating!  Seeing my blog button on your sidebars is so amazing, I appreciate it more than you can imagine... Thank you!
