October Orangeness


This envelope is so-o-o large, it cost ninety-eight cents to send it via First Class Mail.


This is the envelope that almost failed. The address went sideways on me. 


So, I threw most of my creative energy into trying to save it.


In the end it all worked out.


I threw in a little card as an act of gratitude.


One good thing led to a second card. "Have a gourd-ous day!"seemed like such an appropriate thing to say. Here's hoping you'll have a Happy Halloween Day! 'Cause the night might be scary, and one should be wary of ghosts and hairy toads.


Nothing but a loud orange envelope would do. And a little BOO!


The Pumpkinator aka The Great Pumpkin's Assistant, assisted me. We had so much fun! We'd hardly just begun, when one thing led to another . . .


'Til this followed that. And then there were these . . .





Orange is the color of the Great Pumpkin's hair! When she combs it, drawings fall out along with other strange things, that float through the air, and land on the tip of my pen. Long thin strands invite everyone to "Come! Color along with me, with orangey ease, and we will imagine many silly-silly things, such as cartoon boogers that blow across your page when the Pumpkin Eaters Sneeze! And funny green motes, as big as pumpkin seeds, float along on a cool October breeze. So very many alight on my desk! And in their wake they leave a comical mess, for me . . . 

And, the count-down begins.

P.S.  And no, Glenn isn't dead. The Walkers ate the guy who killed himself. He fell on top of Glenn.

    1. Thank you! I enjoy your calligraphy. You are a natural. I have yet to cut my first quill. I ordered a quill knife. It wasn't in stock. I know that I will catch up sometime soon, so you have a letter in my time vault. :)

    1. Thank you, Pam! These little drawings help me pretend my arm isn't as affected as it is in truth. :) The shake is never visible with pencil. It shows with markers though.

      I like that J too! I needed a reason to try the paints, Fine Tec, Lindsey, over at The Postman's Knock recommends. The golds are delicious. I'm practicing learning how to illuminate.

      Goodness, no! I'm able to do the quick drawings and coloring because they require so little time. Writing a letter takes longer. :) They're great antidepressants too.Thanks for your comments.
