Kudos to all of you...

Kudos to all of the wonderful artists that have made it into the great Halloween magazines that are coming out! I had mentioned earlier about writing about what I had found in my relaxing evening of reading! Well there is a lot to say...

First of all October Country Living is full of wonderful Halloween ideas and other surprises. They are celebrating 30 years, I also celebrated this benchmark this year, where did the time go? Anyhow, it discussed on p. 102 that Martha Stewart (which I love), was CL's first woman entrepreneur, and she appeared in the first issue thirty years ago!! I found this cool, yeah I know I am a nerd! On pages 21 and 24 there are wonderful works of art by Valeriote Designs, also known as the Holiday Queen (Congrats Melissa)!! Way to go!! On pages 91-95 it goes into detail about persimmons one of my favorite fall foods. I can still remember walking into my grandmother's kitchen and smelling persimmon pudding in the oven. It was heavenly to smell and to eat, with just a little dollop of cool-whip-yum!!! Finally on p. 100 Halloween Hounds, ooh? I wonder what Twinkle should be this year????

In Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion there is lots to see as well, but I am only going to mention a few things: p. 71 There is a cool skeleton on a unicycle! On p. 93 There is an advertisement for Halloween and Vine of which there will be many talented artists participating in like Johanna Parker, Scott Smith, Greg Guedel, Ginny Betrourne, Nicol Sayre, and more...(I have attached links before on this blog)

There is also a smaller ad for the Ghoultide Gathering coming up soon as well...

There is a whole lot more to see these were just a few things that caught my eye!

I love Melissa's stuff! She is in a big spread in the Artful Blogging as well this year! It's wonderful.

I can't wait to get my Oct. Mary E mag. this year. I don't know why I haven't gotten mine yet! Darn it! It is my favorite along with Martha's Halloween mag. When I get them I will check out the pages.
