Gourd Giveaway Winners

P1110980

We have WINNERS of the Gourd giveaway!

A big thank you everyone who entered. I wish I could send gourds to all of you!

Maybe between ideas for etching the surface and for Zentangle Inspired Art and fanciful tangles our winners will have lots of fun decorating their ornament size gourds!

If you are in Portland over Labor Day, and it is not raining, my sweetie and I will again be at the Pumpkin Patch with free ornament size gourds and colored pens for decorating! More in a couple days.

But now for the big winners! All selected using the Random.ORG Integer Widget.  (I deleted the two people who left comments but did not enter.)

# 2 Adeline

# 11 Polish Mama on the Prairie

#12 Meg

I will send all of you an e-mail and get addresses so I can get these off to you!

And I hope you will all send pictures of your beautiful gourds once they are completed! I would love to share them here.

First Zentangles! (On Gourds - Of Course!)

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!
