Dusting off the ol’ art supplies…

Posted in business-a-go-go, Main at 11:53 am by carrie

Ah yes… the creative block. Usually there are ideas pouring out but lately… nuthin’. I’ve been making a mess with glitter… putting in on anything that isn’t nailed down. Does that count as “creating” something?

Well, high up on my “to do” list is the Halloween postcard. This is Violets are Blue’s 5th Halloween. It’s so hard to believe it’s been that long! So, I can proudly write “Our 5th annual Spooky Halloween Tea Party” on this postcard.

And a few ideas….

I think I’ll combine the three somehow and add pictures. I wish I could glitter all almost 2000 postcards that need to go out ;) But what I am thinking of doing is spraying the postcards with pumpkin pie scent… I need to figure that one out.

It’s an overcast day today… but it’s so cool, gray and lovely. A welcome change from the hot and smoggy days we just had not two weeks ago! The door is open, a pumpkin pie candle is lit, Billie Holiday is playing and I can hear the faint sound of a few wind chimes… not to mention the traffic whizzing by :) A woman across the street is holding a bright red umbrella and looking for the bus… I wish everyone carried bright colored umbrellas everywhere they went! :)

Have a great day everyone! Giveaways to come soon, keep checking back! :)

    You’ve tickled our senses! Billie and the wind chimes touching our ears, the yummy pumpkin pie baking in the oven scent, the touch of the cool weather, and soon we’ll be reading in our own hands the delightful postcard you’re creating! I’m going to hold mine up to watch it shimmer-shimmer then I’ll put it close to my nose for a lovely smell-smell! I think you broke the BLOCK! You’ve got your groove back!
