Wrapping up October: My Cup Truly Runneth Over



Since I won't be around all weekend I thought I would do a wrap up of my favorite month of the year, October.

Creatively I believe I did my best work. The continuing inspiration of the foliage and the supernatural attraction of Halloween I was chuck-full of ingenuity. But, I also had a lot of fun with my work and kept it whimsical. This has been my first Halloween working in my new genre of mixed media, and I have to say I don't know if I will ever go back to my old style. I feel as though there are countless possibilities with mixed media and I have yet to even brush the surface.

This month especially my friendships bloomed with many fellow blog artists. I can truly say that I believe that I have made some life long friends, supporters, and mentors. When no one else understands I know you will. It is amazing how many of us are so much alike. I can waltz over to any blog and see so much of myself in you. So thank you for allowing me to be part of this wonder land of creativity.

Personally, (yes, I know I never put a lot of personal detail in my blog, one day I will be able too). This was an okay month. Nothing to write home to Mom about. There were plenty of ups and downs and thus has been my life for some time. A lot of uncertainty fills my days (any time that is left after art). I will save you the true search for self babble we all go through it and we all know the story. I will pin this on my quarter-life crisis. As any psych would tell me it is not good to repress, but I just continue to push on using my art to delay thinking about all my situations. One day everything will pan out but it is rough when there is no end in sight. As a fellow blogger will tell me one day you will Fly.

So lets explore the ups! For the first time I was able to FINALLY get tickets to the Headless Horseman Haunted Hayride! I had some really good times with my best friends this month. My brother Joe, his fiancé Jo Anne, and my longtime best friend/boyfriend/other half/ying to my yang/total opposite, Adam. We had some great trips to NYC, spent a lot of time in NJ (with Ali) and had many laughs along the way.


Without Adam (engineer) I think I (artist) would be a total mess. I am scattered, unorganized, off the cuff, loud mouthed, and very opinionated. Adam is precise, detail oriented, reserved, VERY quite, and humble. Physically we are polar opposites as well. He is very tall (6'6), thin, health conscience. I am 5'3, stocky, and I eat what I want (only go around once). He is truly my other half, I can't remember life before him.




I recieved the best Halloween present ever from my wonderful parents!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope everyone had a successful month. I know with the economy sales are down (in fact I only made one sale this month). I will keep my fingers crossed that the recession will not last too much longer and we will see some positive turnover in 2009.

I cannot thank you all enough for your tremendous support and comments. Please stick around, your comments and support give me the fuel I need to continue and believe me I need my art more than I need air!

Happy Halloween my loves! Thank you for a great 4 months and this being the most fulfilling of them all!


SMOOOOCHES,

STEPH!
