Happy Halloween!

Hi there lovely blog friends!! I am back to wish all of you a very Happy Halloween! Grad school has been keeping me busy, but I have been making sure to set aside time for painting and sketching; I am really itching for a good painting day, so hopefully this week :) I have been better about posting on Facebook lately just because its quick, but I am hoping to get back in the blogging groove!
What are you all up to for Halloween? Today was my husband's day off, so we went for a great hike. Now I have two stuffed pumpkins in the oven for dinner (here is the recipe--its amazing!!), and we are watching Mad Monster Party :)
Below is a pic of some little paper mache coffin boxes which I painted as favors for my little Halloween party with a few friends on Saturday. They were so fun!


I also made these little treats out of pretzels, hershey's kisses and candy corn.

And here is the table, before all of the food was on there :) I made some orange punch and got some adorable Halloween sugar cookies from Trader Joe's.

And below is our sweet little Rosie in her pumpkin hat; she only had to keep it on for a minute for the photo op ;)

See you soon!


  1. Happy Halloween to you, Dear Lauren! Always a pleasure to hear what you've been up to and see your new work!

    Rosie is too cute in that hat....haha! I think I'd risk having my hand bit off if I tried that on my cats. Btw, we have a wonderful new cat in our family now (well, it's been a year....and our black one is in Kitty Heaven now) so, when you're up to it, I'd love to perhaps have you do a portrait of our tuxedo, Sally? Maybe another trade?
    I know you're busy....but just keep it in the back of your mind :)

    Those coffins are adorable! So glad you are doing well!

  2. looks like you had a great party, love all the decorations and treats looks yummy! also like what you did with the little coffins and putting sweets in them I wish I thought of that!

    Take a look at my blog to see what I did for halloween :)

  4. Hope you are doing okay. So many people got sick over the holidays and are now just getting back to normal and blogging again. Some plodded along (like myself)and now that the weather is beginning to look like spring it sure is giving me a boost of creativity!
