Hi Friends!

Happy weekend...and what beautiful weather we far!
Busy times...Open House at school last much fun...but a little like being a hostess at a HUGE party!
I'm just about to close my BOOtique for the season...washing out my orange paint brush. I painted a large, dried gourd to sell...BUT...I just can't! He was sitting on my craft table as I was painting other items. Sitting there...just staring at me! We've grown quite attached! So...he's going to be staying with me. :) I have more large gourds, so I may paint more next Halloween season...then again...maybe not.

My "Lucy's Holiday Treasures" Blog will start on December 1, 2011. I'll have lots of ornaments and other "winter" items...

Mary Engelbreit is still looking for people to attend her workshop in November. She is even adding a mini ME store into the mix...that and she is decorating her workshop for the holidays. I am SO tempted to go again! I must resist temptation and wait for the next workshop next summer.

XO, Lucy

Hi Friends!

Busy...busy...busy...the story of my life...I LOVE it!

I've been busy painting more items for my BOOtique...

Right now I'm working on some CUTE skeleton gourds...and a big pumpkin gourd with a witches hat...and my newest Halloween thimble art design.

I'm also busy teaching preschool...LOVE...LOVE...LOVE those little ones! We are getting ready for Open House next week!

I've also been super busy on the weekends. Champaign two weeks ago...GO Illini! Last weekend I had a lovely time in Lake Geneva, WI with 6 of the teachers from preschool...Laugh-A-Polusa!!

I usually find some time on the weekends to shop with my good friend, Mary. We used to love shopping at craft malls...which no longer exist. We still go to craft fairs but are becoming more disappointed at the knock off items being sold. I much prefer handmade, creative treasures...unless...of is a Mary Engelbreit treasure.

I'm off to school. Chicago is having FABULOUS weather right now!! Enjoy!

XO, Lucy
