I am making a crafty web journal – I want to keep my politicalish and crypto-zoology book stuff seperate from the pure crafty goodness.  I just want to keep the two seperate so as to have more freedom in my crafty life – I can have rants that last for weeks – such is the state of the world eh? – I am going to strive to not “stray off the path” as Grandma says and keep to the warm light of the crafty forrest.  I am sure the two worlds will merge but I have about four book  and art journals that I keep so whats a few more.  So have been busy.  I have however given up making all the paper myself. for the many scrapbooks and journals.

Having a redo for all the rooms also. Cold weather changes everything and we need more room for the holidays.
My fabric area has encroached to far into the spaces where we live so it will be time for a bit of indoor weeding. Hope you have a lovely week. Halloween is Friday. The year went by so fast.

Okay time to clean the kitchen and make soup.

Pumpkin Harvest

I really love how the pumpkins grew this year. Next year we will plant more. They are a bit thorny when you clean them up after the harvest but so worth it. Not for little little ones to do alone being that the vines “bite” a bit. The tomatos are still thriving but they are saying freeze in the next few days – so it will be time to finish the harvest soon.

Death Defying Acts




I did not catch the release of Death Defying acts released in limited movie houses earlier this year.

Working on a project with the girls for some Magician Magnets and costumes and of course had to have Mr. Houdini. Google has some amazing pictures of him and I walked away from research today very inspired.

This movie DDA directed by Gillian Armstrong looks to be based on the book “The Secret Life of Houdini” where it is hypothesized that Houdini was poisoned by the Spiritualist Societies he spent his later years debunking, and did not die by accident. Now I need to read the book and Netflix the movie.

I love the Tony Curtis version of Houdini’s life but Houdini’s legend will be interpreted through the ages. Mabey light a candle for him on Halloween.

Halloween is just around the corner…

Scary Godmother on the Cartoon Network is the show my kids wait for every year – like Charlie Brown in the Pumpkin Patch was for me. Or Skeleton Jack the Pumpkin King (le-sigh).  I love this time of year.
