well...

Happy November everyone!!

As some of you may or may not know this month is that National Blah Blah month, or as it is really called, National Blog Writing Month, meaning everyone who has signed up has "pledged" to write a blog entry every day.

so here it is, November 1st and here is my first one.

So, I know I have been the world's worst blogger lately but I am sure you all understand there has been a lot going on.

Our party was a wonderful success, and no......I got no pictures, it was one of those things where I never really had the chance to run upstairs and get my camera and by the time I had the chance, well....I was too drunk.

You see my bubs made this wonderful punch, Rum,vodka, and tequila with fresh 3 berry juice to take away the horrible taste of the tequila.

perfection in punch form.

We have also been spending a lot of time with Bruce, which I am hoping has been helping him. Last night was the one week anniversary of Carol's passing, so he came to our place to spend trick or treat with us.

It was good to see him smile at times, but the overwhelming devastation in his face is haunting, purely haunting. I am constantly reminded of how strong he is being, if it were me, well I really don't know how I could go on. Perhaps I am not as strong as I think I am.

So, we watched Pan's Labyrinth which I had never seen...........................I am speechless when it comes to that movie, just awe...pure awe.

It is both wonderful and vicious, innocent, and evil, truly everything your best fairy tale should be.

so, in short, see it if you have not.

also...in shop news. I spent a good part of yesterday at the print company getting my limited edition prints made, our printer is so nice he spent time with me as I obsessed over each piece, saying "does this look too pink, I think it might be, can you make it less pink", and "this one needs a touch more yellow, so it glows more, can that happen, just a little more yellow"

and so on, and so on.

But he did them and they are lovely and I have already listed two of them in my shop and the rest will be listed throughout the day.

Keep in mind that they are VERY limited, only 10 made of each.

ok, this has been enough babble for now, you can see the photos of the prints in the blog entry below this one.

see you all tomorrow.

One post down, twenty nine to go!

I would have been here sooner, but I was writing the first 1300 words of my NaNoWriMo novel. I'm already thinking I'm in over my head taking on NaBloPoMo and the NaNo, but whatevs. I'm tough.

Glad the party was fun. Miss you!!!

Ok, I started reading the blog and got down to the punch part and got woozy and the rest was lost on me.

Sounds like you and your bubs are providing much needed company for Bruce. My thoughts and prayers still go out to him.

Sounds like the par-tay was a blast! Too bad there are no pictures.

As you know, I'm doing NaBloPoMo too. I started a good bit before November but am still at it. Not sure I will keep up with it after the end of it but we will see. I feel like I have very little to say everyday, or, at least, very little that is of any interest.

Bah.

Love the new work! You are the best!

xo,

Karen Beth :)
