Gourd Jack-o-lanterns! AND Gourd Ghost Pinatas!

P1120096

Sharing a couple new ideas I came up with for playing with gourds!

This one - my totally cool jack-o-lantern face - could also be drawn onto a fresh pumpkin! Just use sharpies and set aside a little quiet time to doodle to your heart's content.

Definitely will be decorating fresh pumpkins with doodles - they will last a LOT longer than they do when cut!

Even fresh gourds in weird shapes are good candidates! Think about it!

My friend TeriC introduced me to zentangles years ago and it was love at first sight - especially the colored ones!

You will better understand why if you go to her Zentangle Flickr site and see for yourself just what magic she weaves with her zentangles.

Playing with gourds and making Matryoshka (Russian Nesting Dolls) again! But this time the inspiration comes entirely from my friend and brilliant art teacher, Gail over at "That Artist Woman".

Celebrate Christmas in July with Gingerbread Mango Shortcake

P1110644

There is nothing I know that says Christmas better than the heady fragrance of gingerbread baking.

When I saw this recipe for Gingerbread Cake with Lemon Sauce in the current issue of the Penzey's Spices catalogue, I decided it would be the perfect treat to celebrate Christmas in July!
