Trick or Treating shouldn't be just for little ones...

After the little ones have gone to bed and left their coveted stash unattended is the perfect time to raid the booty of all of YOUR favorite sweets along with some extras to add to this delectable cookie...Blowout! This particular cookie has become a yearly splurge ever since my mother gave me a copy of Lee Bailey's Country Desserts. It is what every peanut butter cookie strives to be with the addition of dark chocolate chips, honey roasted peanuts and chopped miniature peanut butter cups (pilfered from the Trick or Treat bucket). And like all the creatures you see on Halloween, don't be surprised if all these cookies disappear overnight.

Start Your Christmas Dreaming

I have been busy, busy preparing for a hopping holiday season in schemata. With a few hundred hand painted ornaments now ready for upcoming shows, galleries and online browsing I am happy to share some handpicked sets. I personally went through all my finished ornaments and mixed and matched a few coordinated collections to make your holiday trees the envy of all your friends. These sets include four or five various shapes and sizes to give you a well rounded showing of my creations. They come thoughtfully packaged in an attractive clear paint can for storage or impressive presentation for gift giving.

Look for more sets to be available next month at the Paso Robles Art Association’s show Small Treasures and keep updated with all my craftiness with SchemataCraft on Twitter.

Speed the latest exhibit in the Showroom gallery for the Paso Robles Art Association is a juried show featuring artworks reflecting the pace of life (fast or slow). This may include: the speed of objects, a long boring lecture, clocks, calendars, snails, cheetahs, lazy afternoons, race cars, food left on the stove, etc. Exhibit runs October 7 to November 7.

My original acrylic painting Sudden Rain from my Umbrella Series has been chosen for display. She is a paused moment of a little black dress laden girl caught in a shimmering sprinkle.
