I went over to Matt's classroom to bring him some food and spied this AWESOME drawing one of his students did for him...

I guess it's true what they say...there's no messing with The Dean!

Okay, Crazy....

So let me introduce you to my Tomatillo plant.
Planted in May along with everyone else, she grew very big, but no blooms.

I think she thought she was a house plant because she was hanging out with all the other house plants. Then... last month, right as we're about to pull all the plants up in the garden and put the houseplants inside,etc...
She blooms.

Lots of blooms!

And now little tomatillo husks and fruit are appearing!
On their own time line I guess!
So should I leave her outside and hope she doesn't get frozen...

.....or bring her in and try to coax the little husks along?
Life isn't crazy enough evidently!!!!!!!!

I Heart Bisbee

I have always loved Bisbee, but had not been back to visit for awhile. Matthew had never been and for his official First Fall Break we went.

It was truly gorgeous with beautiful days and cool nights.

We relaxed and enjoyed ourselves immensely.

Good friends and perfect Arizona weather!
We stayed at the Gardens and would definitely recommend!

Some Beginning Preparations

I know we all love this time of year!
I am excited to be on the ball enough this time around to be working on some Day of the Dead jewelry and artwork.

Halloween and Day of the Dead jewelry with skulls, reds and lots of wood and bone.

I am hoping to participate in a Day of the Dead Celebration at Sharlot Hall and these pieces are being made for that event taking place November the 1st.

Also made these postcards that were quick and fun!

Looking forward to cleaning and re-doing my alter and will be sure to share pictures of that with you!
