I know...it's already mid-November and I'm just getting around to sharing this Halloween post.  What can I say that I literally have not said a dozen times in my posts this year...this year just seems to be passing faster than the speed of light.  I so wish there was a way to slow it down.  I feel like I'm racing from thing to thing trying to play catch up.  Like a dog chasing his tail.  Or in this case...a demi-dog.

I've always been a huge fan of negative space painting.  If you're not familiar with this technique it's basically taking an image or shape, securing it to your canvas, and then painting over and around the object.  When the paint is dry you remove the object and you are left with a silhouette surrounded by your beautiful painting.

I'm not one to be fearful of getting older.  Sure, it takes more time to bounce back after an 8 party weekend. I'm a little creakier going up and down ladders. And who doesn't need a bit more coffee in the morning to get going? But all in all it's okay.  I am happily embracing aging "gracefully".

It's that time of year again!  Not only is it my favorite times of the year, but also one of my busiest.  I hope you'll forgive me for the brevity of my post, but I've got 25 pumpkins to destroy for my Stranger Things pumpkin patch and 7 different craft zones to create.

For the past three years, we've been decorating the front of one of our client's homes for Halloween.  My team and I love it as it really gets the creative juices flowing.  The home has these awesome trees out front - and they serve as the perfect backdrop for our magical mayhem.
