Firstly I had ordered a calendar from Juliette Crane in one of my splurge moments (I got some grief for it from my boyfriend) but although it was more costly then I would have ever spent on a calendar, I love that my purchase helps support an artists lifestyle and I think that in itself made it worth it. Along with the calendar I got a surprise of a few stickers too!
I also had a bit of time to do another of Willowing's Fabulous Face lessons. This is the 3 quarter portrait:
Also Ady from Doll Dreams posted a tutorial on doing a cute sugar skull ATC and I did one, then got addicted and did 5 more in a row!! Here is my favorite one I did:
She is also doing a giveaway in December for everyone that is joined in her Doll Dreams network! All you have to do is join, post her badge to your blog then spread the word! The prize is a free class which is amazing, I have yet to take on of her classes but I have heard nothing but amazing things about it and can't wait to be able to partake in it one day!
Myself, my boyfriend, my best friend, and her boyfriend who is also our best friend went to the Renaissance Festival in Maryland. It was a blast!! Here are a few photos from there!
The love of my life who always hates taking pictures, this isn't a very good one of us and it took me a lot of begging just to get this!
The setting sun turned the trees into such beautiful colors
We also went and played on a playground :)

So that is a summary of October for you, I have another very busy month ahead of me but I hope to post something again before too long!
