So, what are your plans for today??? Going trick or treating? Gonna wear a costume???

It's such a bummer that we don't have halloween here nor in Brazil. So the one and only time I was able to enjoy this fantastic holiday was when I was an exchange student in the US in '94 (OMG...has it been THAT long already???).

Oh, well... at least I get to give you guys treats here, so I don't feel so left out on the party! LOL

I have a few things to show/tell/give you guys, so please bare with me, ok? ;)

I'm having a BIG SALE this weekend. Starting today, all my products priced above $1 are 50% OFF!!! How good is that? The sale goes only till November 3rd, so be sure to take advantage of it! ;)

I'm glad that the week is over... it was a very weird week for me! I have no clue why, but I felt I was sleepwalking all week long... just feeling BLAH, kwim? I hope that the weekend brings a bit of energy into this body! LOL

Soooo...I have a little treat for you today!

I've been trying to teach myself how to work with Illustrator, so far I can only do the basic of the basics but I'm having a blast with it. I've 'doodled some halloween characters and made them into stickers for you guys. I know they aren't anything extraordinary, but I must confess that I'm pretty proud of them! LOL

Here they are:

Halloween & Romance???

Wow, another month has gone by... And that means a new lyric challenge!!! YAY!!!

This month's lyrics was a bit tough for me to choose... Kim's anniversary had me in a romantic mood, but I also wanted to incorporate Halloween in the challenge...

Yeah, 'monsters' and romance.... great combination, huh? LOL  But I think I (sort of) managed it!

And so, this month's lyric is:

Witchcraft by Frank Sinatra

Those fingers in my hair
That sly come hither stare
That strips my conscience bare
Its witchcraft
And I've got no defense for it
The heat is too intense for it
What good would common sense for it do
cause its witchcraft, wicked witchcraft
And although, I know, its strictly taboo
When you arouse the need in me
My heart says yes indeed in me
Proceed with what your leading me to
Its such an ancient pitch
But one I wouldn't switch
cause there's no nicer witch than you

I'm really excited to see what you guys will come up with using those words!!! :D

And as usual, there's a goodie for those who participate:


And since I'm not so cranky anymore (lol) I'll give you a little sample of the pb kit.... how about that??? ;)



And don't forget to go to the DSO Blog for your daily TREAT! ;)

Hope you have a wonderful and creative friday!!!
