Sunrise, pumpkin carving, and a small watercolor painting

I think with every sunrise, I fall in love with the sky more and more each time.

Better late than never, we were finally able to head out to Gaver's Farm and get our pumpkins!

Britney kept taking pictures of me.....

In a hole in the ground, there lived a hobbit.

And I couldn't resist purchasing a couple gourds. 
They're so beautiful, and full of autumn colors!

Sarah and I working at the Yearbook snackbar in Study Hall at CBA two weeks ago.
She was trying to get me to do the "fierce hand thing" but I'm not interested...haha.

Yesterday I drove around a loooot.
I took Mom and Britney up to the Farmer's Market because it was an Art Guild, but it was so awkward. There was about 4 artists in the back room and they were all staring at you....I really wanted to buy a print of one lady's watercolor, but she only had the original, and understandably, it was super expensive. I wish I could've taken a picture.

And then we hit all the craft stores, and I bought my first peppermint bark of the season, because sometimes, you just have to treat yourself! 

I love Strathmore's watercolor tiles. 
I can sit down and have a small painting done in 15 minutes or less if I don't have a lot of time.

Well, this wasn't a long post.... 
I wanted it to be longer...
Mom's got pumpkin stew cooking in the oven!


P.S. I totally couldn't think of a post title...haha.


  1. Ooh such a pretty sunrise ^_^
    And awesome pumpkin carving!!! That is so cool!!!
    Aww I love that little painting so much - I love owls <3 =)

    1. Ahh, I've just been loving the autumn clouds to pieces, especially the sunrises and sunsets.
      Haha, it didn't turn out how I pictured it in my head, but at least you can tell what it is!!
      Aww, thanks! I didn't have another assignment to hop to immediately, so I took advantage of the time!

      Your letter is heading out today! It was hard to part with.
      I don't know why I do this to myself all the time...haha.
      It's an awesome envelope :P

    2. Yes! Clouds in general are so lovable <3
      Aww it looks amazing to me!!

      Yay! Oh Stephanie =/ I completely understand if you just keep those amazing envelopes! I didn't even color my last one to you :P
      Thank you for sending it anyway - it makes me feel so special ^_^ Did you take pictures of it? Does it make you feel better to know that I've kept every single one from the very start and have them all in their own special box? And they're all in amazing shape! I always cut just a very thin slice off the top part of the envelope instead of ripping it open :D

      This was soo sweettt <3 <3
      And I actually didn't color this one....I used ink pens, but I surprised myself how creative it turned out. But yes, I took pictures of it and made a copy of it through the printer! I was like "Wow, I didn't even get this idea from Pinterest." haha.
      Awwww, I do the exact same thing with your letters, only I got a free envelope slicer at a farm show with my dad, so I use that instead of cutting it. ;) Well, the letters are in good shape....Holly's fascinated with chewing the box.
      She burst in my room the other day when I was on the floor doing art (even though I have a desk...haha) and she stood on the piece I was working on.
      Mandie didn't like to step on anything. Holly doesn't care (yet anyway).
      She didn't ruin it, but I learned a lesson...haha.

      Oooh! And I got a clip light at Walmart today! It was only $5. I'm sooo happy. Now I can work on art in the evenings with out hurting my eyes so much. I looked in the mirror last night while finishing up your letter and my eyes were red. *sigh* Better late than never I suppose?
      (To get a light I mean)

      Now I must reply to your email! :D

    4. Oooh I'm so excited to see it!!!
      Oh my goodness haha she certainly likes to chew!
      Yay!! Clip lights are very handy to have ^_^ I have one clipped to a shelf above my desk. It's not the prettiest thing to look at, but it works! =P
      Wow that's not good! Give those eyes a break! ;)
