Martha move over.


Our Courtney got creative this week.  She needed a halloween portrait to hang over her fireplace so we dug through the back room for an old "retired" frame.  It wasn't nearly old and grimy enough, so she rubbed rottenstone into the liner and dry-brushed black paint on the frame itself.  Then she found an old photo of Edgar Allen Poe, tore it into pieces, and put it back together.  The thing that put it over the top was spray glue and rottenstone on the inside of the glass to give it that really grungy look.  Yea, Courtney.  Very spooky.

Midge and Gidget got a MUCH needed bath this weekend.  There's nothing yummier than a tiny pooch that smells delicious.  I probably won't get any work done for a few days for all the snuggling I'm going to do.

It must be the beginning of silly season (sigh) as people are beginning to e-mail me to tell me that my voice mailbox is full.  I promise to get caught up with communications next week. (right after I finish my quarterlies)
Gaah.  If I'm not very pleasant on the phone this week, please chalk it up to quarterly stress and I'm sure I'll be nicer next week. 

And the rest of our accomplishments this week.

I agree, Courtney's project turned out pretty creepy - great job! Another great week of framing - the Noah's sub particularly caught my eye!
