Trick or treat, trick or treat. Give me something good to eat!
I’ve managed to stay away from the candy so far–but it’s still early. Normally I stock up around this time for the Trick or Treaters and end up eating all the candy before the 31st. Invariably, I end up running out to get some more at the last minute. This year, I’ll just wait until the last minute buy the candy. That should save me a few thousand calories!
My favorite costume that I remember growing up was a pumpkin costume that my Mom made for my Dad. He wore it every year–didn’t mind looking ridiculous. When my boys were little, I found some hand made pumpkin costumes at a craft show. I found this picture recently of my oldest son, Scott, taken when he was in kindergarten. Isn’t he a cutie!
I also made a larger jack -o- lantern costume that my husband wore for years. Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture. Maybe I can get him to put it on again this year so I can document it for posterity.
I love these Halloween creations. Pam I am going to try gauche for my backgrounds on aquabord. Will let you know the results. I am looking for an even background.
I’ve heard of gauche, but don’t really know what it is. Is it water based ? I am really frustrated with my backgrounds–especially when painting around things– so hard to keep it even. I was just about to try acrylics. How is gauche different?

I love it!!
My cheeks hurt from smiling at his cuteness. He’d have been my kindergarten boyfriend.
…and lest anyone get the wrong idea, that adorable pumpkin is my husband!
I thought you would enjoy that, Robyn!
