I was lucky enough to meet up with some very good friends this weekend. There is a long story behind it and I will not bore you with the details but Sandy Camarda, Lisa Kettel and I have a little Charlotta history. When we all met, I surprised them with one of three "Charlottas" (not really frozen Charlotte but a bisque head instead.) I ordered them on eBay and decorated them all up. They even got a little “tramp stamp” tattoo on their back shoulder of a creepy, yet sassy little spider.

It was a fun project and the best part was the look on my Charlotta’s faces when they opened them up. Now we each have one to remember the others by.

I gave the orange ones to the Charlottas they were much more Halloween-ish and kept "Miss Green" for myself.

And just take a peek at the sweetness I got in return!
The adorable one on the left is a little mouse lion tamer from Lisa and the spooky-ookey one on the right was created by Sandy.  She says "Charlotta was bewitched"

I love them both and they have a special place in my home reserved for the finest of fine homemade art.

More soon on last weekend when I was so fortunate to join with creative souls for sweet Kim Caldwell's event:
 An Artistic Affaire L'Automne.

a little birdie and a clown...

I have been to Solo again and every time I go, I find something wonderful, a treasure of some sort to brighten my home or a gift for someone dear.  here is the little gem I found and could not leave behind... isn't she sweet?

In other endeavors, I have completed my "Under the Big Top" Swap page.  This swap is being hosted by the ever talented Wanda Clark for Silver Bella this fall.  I was not going to sign up because it didn't sound like my style, but it was a fun challenge and as always in art, I learned a few things. 

Here is a sneak-peek at my page.  I used some old Rusty Pickle Circus themed paper, a meri-meri clown that I shrunk waaaaaay down and re-made (fifteen times!!!) because he only came in a huge size, and painted and glittered some hat pins. 
I am really excited to see how this whole thing turns out.  Wanda is making the covers and binding them all together and will deliver them to us in November... oh goodie!
