Happy 5th Birthday Lowell...

We had a wonderful party today for the birthday boy. It is so fun to see him understanding that this is his special day and enjoying it with friends and family. Here he is enjoying his Max and Ruby worm cake. Yum!It's so fun to have our birthday's so close together. Mine is next Saturday, the 20th. We'll be doing the Autism Speaks Walk Now for Autism that day. If you'd like to support our team, click here. Also some pics from the apple orchard last weekend. We had such a beautiful day. We really have been outside a lot, enjoying the fall weather.

Some exciting news folks, because so many of you are still requesting to get in on the Sweet and Sinister blog after seeing pics of the amazing projects on our flickr site or hearing about it on other blogs I've decided to start up a third Sweet and Sinister blog to open up a bunch more spaces.

I just can't turn people away when over a dozen amazing artists have come up with step by step tutorials for projects created just for the Sweet and Sinister bloggers. Since there is still 6 weeks to go before Halloween, there is a lot of time for crafting. Now this new blog will have all the tutorials that have already been posted, plus the new ones that I post each week. In fact, my fabulous guest designers are creating such amazing projects just for this blog that I am going to have to start to post a tutorial and giveaway every few days to pack it all in before All Hallow's Eve. If you haven't joined in the fun or know someone that wants to, just click on over here and check out at my etsy shop and you'll recieve the invite.

Speaking of support, our fellow blogger, Sarah, of GypsyMermaidLife has lost her home due to Hurricane Ike. See her blog here for updates. Absolutely heartbreaking. I'm sure she will need to replenish all of her art supplies.

Happy Birthday, Lowell. That is so cool that he is starting to realize that it's his day. That in itself is cool. That was one crazy cake. :)

Can we do something help Sarah replenish, rebuild, start over? I'm in favor of that and would love to help her!

Hi - I was happy to see that you had another swap available until I read on about Gypsy Mermaid. I left a message for her but forgot to leave her my email and I don't know her address. If you have her address please let me know.
