Let me officially apologize for my lack of posts lately. I know, I know, you're busy too. But for some reason I feel like I have this huge obligation to entertain you and at times, I fail horribly.
I'm going to start posting less due to the overwhelming amount of work I have on me at the moment. Currently, I'm working a full time job plus assisting in a few additional projects and making sure I stay up on my commissioned pieces. All while trying to have a life. Oh, and my best friend is getting married in less than 6 months and I have all those fun MOH duties. I'm not saying all of this to get sympathy BUT a little bit of understanding might help ;)On a positive note, I finished a HUGE painting that finally made it's way to NYC last week..Pics are above. It was quite the challenge to work on a 5 ft unstretched canvas! I'll post pics when they have it stretched and up on the wall...
Now let me be random for a moment. Do you remember trying to locate the most odd items for your wedding? I found myself searching for a photo shoot location this week for my bride which must have the following: A pretty park, a cute cafe window and a Barnes & Noble ALL within walking distance. I remember at one point in my wedding frenzy when I had to stop and laugh because I was searching for the following: Two vintage Coke bottles, a wedding topper with a couple who had dark hair, bobby pins with pearls on the end and lime green Bubba Kegs..6 to be exact.
Sorry for the random rant, it's just one of those days ;)

All of my friends and family know what a harvest geek I am. I LOVE FALL. I love the pumpkins, the chill in the air, Halloween, oh, I just adore it!
With that being said, I want to go ALL OUT with pumpkins this year. I've already begin my collection this weekend, scooping up 4 little guys for my yard.
Josh always warns me of my harvest obsession because I start too soon ( I can't help myself!!). By October 31st last year I was throwing my half-rotten pumpkins out on Halloween day because I was so sick of looking at them! Oh well, sometimes you never learn :/

A monster costume for your lil monster. I admit, I just wanted to post this because I wanted to giggle at this little booger all day.

Ten years ago, Josh and I were sitting in economics class watching 9/11 unfold. It will forever be a day that we will never forget. God bless the men and women who lost their lives on that day.
Where were you?

I just happened to stumble upon the most amazing, delicate, romantic perfume recently. Have you seen/tried any Shelley Kyle Perfumes? You absolutely MUST try Tiramani by Shelley Kyle if you ever happen to run upon her collection in a boutique, it's my new favorite.
I have never been one for those fruity body splashes of today and I rarely get stopped in my tracks by a perfume that truly smells unique, but when I tried this one it literally made me put on the brakes.
What new scent are you currently loving?
