Today's Creative Content Camp session advised us to take 10 photos a day for the next week of projects were working on - our images, in situ, our offices, studios and photos our selves in the process of creating. One suggestion was featuring out pets. Zippy doesn't get involved with my art, even though he is always near by, whether I'm paining, sewing, writing or in the garden. Rocky, on the other hand, would sit on my lap, on top of my watercolor paper,and nap in m basket of home made collage papers.I miss you Rocky.
Mycala suggested we enter Zippy in the Visionary Arts Museum Pet Parade. It was last minute so we scampered to find an outfit and settled on a star spangled America's Sweetheart lollipop T-shirt. To complete the look we found a hat and adorned it with red, white and blue lollipops. He smiled most of the day, loving the attention, prancing happily in the parade and having his few minutes of fame on stage for the talent show. He fell asleep at one point and was too tired to participate in Musical Chairs, but all in all it was a wonderful day.
There were dogs of every shape and size, one cat, a bunny, two iguanas and a snake. The costumes were phenomenal and included baby carriages decorated as floats, with owners dressed to match their dogs costumes. We were threatened a few times with lightning and potential storms but they magically help off.
Next year we'll start earlier and create a costume worthy of the occasion!
Halloween in our new home was delightful! We had over 200 children of all ages stop by - many spider men, possible attracted by our over sized spider, princesses, a cupcake, two dalmations accompanied by Cruella DeVille.This is the first time we've lived in a community where they have a lot of kids trick or treating in years! All of the neighbors were out on their porches and we all visited and talked in between visitors. It was a warm and wonderful evening in Lake Walker!
