my darlin' clementine

we've been eating these like crazy lately! such a cute little ball of yumminess. and such a "spring-ey" thing to eat...nothing like sitting outside, enjoying the sunshine while you peel and eat a little clementine. you want a clementine now, don't you?

I want to say THANK YOU to all of you that have visited my interview over at Raven's blog! If you haven't taken a peek yet, swing by HERE and enter in my giveaway!! You have through March 29th.

things have been busy around here...seems we are all a little behind schedule so to speak. especially due to our little flood and then the weather has been SO nice that I've spent a ton of time sitting at the park with my boys. Which is such a treat. Warm, sunny days! (it was back to chilly rain today...but I don't even care!) I had to take advantage of them and turn this black hole of a computer off and enjoy some outside time:) My nights have been spent busily working on finishing some Halloween pieces for the National Halloween Haunters Convention coming up in April. If you are in the Philadelphia area...come on by and visit the Spooky Time Jingles booth and say hi to Dani! Hooray!! She has been working so hard at all the details...thanks Dani!



and speaking of "haunters"...Henry is quite the ghost story teller! We were roasting marshmallows and making smores the other night and this little guy was telling the most dramatic and spooky stories. Oh my gosh, he is such a character...so cute. Jake was unimpressed by the ghost stories (even my fake girl scout camp/wood monster adventure didn't work very well..what!?!!)...but he loved the fire and was trying so hard to make a torch. That's super safe...right? *wink wink*




Happy Thursday friends!!

Awwww, looks like so much fun!! We're not allowed to have a fire pit in our hood so we used the gas grill to roast our marshmallows...lame!
Love Jake's torch! Very Indiana Jones:)

Love that polkadot bowl, I have one just like it :) Great paintings!! I hope you do really well there. It's an interesting convention, mostly yard ornaments, animated props, makeup and costumes. It will be interesting to see how handmade arts fit in there.

I hope you mixed the clementine's with the smore's, how yummy would that be? sounds decadent to me...I've been on a fresh mango kick for some reason, those and banana's and a blood orange here or there.

Happy Spring! It's official tomorrow morning, yippee!!!

Bonjour Darling Jenn! You should spend all the time you can sitting in the park with your sons! These moments last for such a short time, take advantage of it! Oh! I love the color palette you used on your Halloween paintings! Beautiful! Can't wait to sit at the fire outside! We should be able to do it this weekend. That is with our winter coats on, of course! Have a HAPPY weekend! LuLu xxx

Hi Jenn:

Sometimes I forget how much I love Halloween art. I have some of it at my desk all year around, and it simply makes me happy.
