I’m a box un-packing machine!

Can I get a hallelujah that the Fall has actually come to us! No more constant a/c… cloudy and breezy… I love this change! Yippee! (I knocked on wood, therefore there is no jinx factor! It’s a rule I made up!)

Dang it, I haven’t crafted, or taken pictures or done anything creative in weeks and weeks! Still fighting the cough after the cold and I’m currently unpacking 60 boxes of candles at the store! Which brings me to my next idea:

We’ll be having a GIVEAWAY any day now… definitely a candle or twelve…that and perhaps a Webkinz and something Halloweenie… to get in the spirit!

I’m supposed to be assembling some sort of post card and mail it out for the shop’s 5th annual Halloween party… but I can’t think of anything to take a picture of or draw. I think the cold and large amounts of Robitussin have killed my inner artist! Temporarily, at least.

I need inspiration… the 300 pounds of Pumpkin Pie Candles just aren’t doing it.

Ooh! Something sort of sparked… just now! To the art cave! ;)

    For the postcard, how about cute pumpkins with kitties in Halloween garb . . . I know, generic . . . but, kitties are cute!!! (I’m sure JoyJoy would model for you.) :-)

    Pumpkin Pie Candles ? Luckily I just hit PUMPKIN Mode the other day (thank you blessed RAIN !) so that sounds alluring enough to get me over there SOON. You know why I have not been by in so long ? Well , the heat was daunting — that’s for sure….! But , no ! By the time I have a chance to catch my breath and go do Fun Stuff like Wander Your Shop and Find Treasure – it seems it is on a Sunday ! oh poooo. And you are not there . I think I need a key. My own key. Yes that’s it. I can live there on your days off. Whaddya think ?


    ps – postcard mailing ? ORANGE DARLING – ORANGE !!! anything orange. Your divine TEA POTS / Cups or CUPCAKES are always a Shoe-In.

    Did you say Art Cave ? as in BAT Cave ? Do Bats Drink Tea ? I would take tea with a bat….yes I would…..in a shop….with a cupcake….(just an idea)
