It's that time, again. Don't you love it when the heat of summer finally starts to fade and you get that crispy wood-smoke-in-the-air kinda feeling?
The other day, I visited The Great Pumpkin patch, Charlie, and it was...well...great.
If I ignored the fact that it was 93 degrees with 93 percent humidity, it seemed just like fall.
The sheer variety of pumpkins is pretty amazing. These blue beauties were my favorites.
The dusty orange was a close second.
Just look at these yummy, creamy colored things.
Some of these are technically squash and maybe some folks consider the pumpkin a squash but that's a discussion for another time.
We love our squashy friends...warts and all.
I just wanted to take every one of them home but I'll be leaving, soon, for the wilds of Connecticut where I'll be teaching at the fabulous Art is You event...Oct. 10-14. I can't wait to teach here! There may be a couple of spots left in my classes.
It's a doubly whammy as I'll almost immediately leave for The Prairie...Oct. 16-20.
There are spots left, at The Prairie and I'll be teaching Hoop-La, probably for the last time, in person. So, if you've wanted to take it, now's the time! Also, I've got two new classes for you: The Art of Closure, which is a one time gig, and Maker of Saints.
Got some fun stuff in store for you in the Closure class:
And the Maker of Saints class is brand spanking new one:
I'll show you how to make this sweet caged santos doll necklace. You'll love her...I promise.
I'm so looking forward to the incredible, creative Prairie atmosphere and chillaxin' with my Prairie gals. The weather will be gorgeous, by then.
