Thanks, guys!  And thanks to snacky for starting this challenge!

I've sort of been all over the place this month, but I'd consider it a success!  This month, I carved 3 pumpkins, designed 10 templates, did 1 painting, made 2 string art pieces, finished 3 pen drawings, taught 1 paint class, finished 1 knitted blanket, crocheted 2 hats and 1 shawl, and did several sketches in between!  My fingers are sore and my house is messy, but I couldn't be happier :)

Well done, Toffeemama.

Your username makes me hungry every time I see it.

Should I start a November challenge wherein everyone cleans up their craft-related  messes?

So does yours, snacky!

Cleaning house would be a month-long challenge, at least for me.  There's three baskets full of clean laundry that need to be folded right beside me, in fact.  But crafting is so much more fun than cleaning! D:

There's a reason I never join any of the cleaning/ decluttering challenges. If there were a snacking challenge I would dominate...

I think I did pretty well!

Although I tacked on the first two days of November to finish my pieces for the show on Saturday....ahem

I now have just over 1000.00 worth of paintings/cards/gift tags to sell on Saturday.  My actual goal would be to bring in 400-500.00....although thats totally a shot in the dark, because this is my first show.  LOL



Wish me luck!

Is there an Art-vember? I finally got with it. Trying to get my crochet game back on to make some scarves for operation gratitude 2017 (to military service members). I still need to learn how to count my stitches... poor recipients of my potential scarves.

The practice is both frustrating and peaceful. Haha

And I bought a $10 watercolor set to go sit in nature (thanks Flyingkea for inspiration).

Well if I do finish anything, maybe I will imgur it here anyway for show n tell. ;)
