Autumn 12: Bonfire

September 11, 2012

Believe it or not, I’ve never been to a bonfire. (I think I was always grounded by the time fall bonfire season kicked in.  Perils of being a rebellious teen.) But I’ve always loved the idea of a bonfire party.  Whipping the team into a frenzy to pull out a homecoming victory, the smell of […]

September 5, 2012

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always been a sweater girl. From the sexy 1970’s burnt-orange turtleneck Garanimals to today’s cabled hand-knits, I’m always excited to see the first colder nights of Fall so I can dig out the stack of sweaters that have been way too hot to even look at all summer long.

Autumn’s Coming!

August 24, 2012

Some of you may remember this summer’s class, In The Sun, put out by Natalie Malik.  In the online class, there were seasonal prompts for enjoying the summer (and documenting it) every weekday, with some weekend challenges thrown in for spice.  The Artist posted a few pages from that class here and here, in fact, […]
