New challenge at Tag Tuesday

 Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge at Tag Tuesday, and our lovely and talented Michele is hosting with the them 'All Hallows Eve'. She has made some inspirational pieces on our blog. 

I have a piece using a Gecko Galz image:




Hope to see lots of you joining in! As always you have 2 weeks to join us and tags of all formats are welcome - hope to see you there!

At TIOT our theme is also Halloween, and you have one more week to link your creations to us. I have another A3 mixed media journal page. I am also linking to Chris' 'hold the line' challenge at AJJ:









And some mixed photos from the past couple of weeks, my photo files got muddled up after a Windows update!




















The neighbour's crocodile:



Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by

  9. Super spookilicious artwork today, love it. That plane coming in to land looks like a Night Fury flying in! Isn't that slug beautiful? I think it's a Leopard slug, looking at the size and the markings.
    Stay safe and well, Deb

  11. Good morning Valerie: Halloween is just around the corner, of course, but the annual trick or treating by children has been officially cancelled by the government of the Province of Ontario due to Covid concerns. I remember the great enthusiasm my daughter had for this annual event when she was little so I can imagine that many children will be disappointed. Parents will have to get creative to ensure that their kids have some kind of Halloween party at home. This damn pandemic continues to snake its way into every corner of our lives, doesn't it? The slug pictured above is a fascinating looking creature. I don't think I have ever seen one so attractively coloured, and certainly it is more attractive than a certain pumpkin-hued politician on this side of the Atlantic, and doubtless more intelligent. Probably with better manners too. I think a theme for one of your tag challenges should be slugs and snails! Think of all the attractive snails shells with whorls and bright colours and the creative opportunities right there. Today I will be leading two bird walks, one for my regular Tuesday group and another for a group of children being homeschooled, whose parents wish them to have some outdoor education. I will take some bird seed with me and they should be able to hand feed the chickadees, always a thrill for children from toddlers to ninety-year olds. Hope you have a great day, Valerie. Hugs from Canada. David

    1. Thanks David! Yes, that pumpkin headed politician who tricks everybody to treat himself is unfortunately not a Halloween joke, but hopefully, soon gone from the scene. The slug is really beautiful and was long, about 5", I have never seen such a big one. A lot of kids will be disappointed about Halloween this year, this one, too! Have fun with your 2 bird weeks, that will surely be a great experience for the kids. Here the schools are all open, under strict conditions, but I wonder for how long, as the numbers are rising scarily and toilet paper is once again being bought and hoarded....Have a great day, take care, have fun with the kiddies and with the other group. Hugs to you both!

  14. Fun tags. I like the Witches Coven. The crocodile made me laugh as I thought it was quite big. It's a matter of perspective, isn't it? Enjoy your day. 🎃
