What happens when 4 friends collaborate, sharing their passions for nature, art and fashion…one word, MAGIC! I am beyond the moon excited to announce our creative project, “When Nature & Fashion Collide”!
On the 3rd Wednesday of each month, beginning on March 21st, you will experience outfits styled by Dominique, that are inspired by my critter photography and Darren’s flower photography. Lisa will then pull these three beautiful elements together, through her stunning artwork, to create a new masterpiece each month. We have all been inspired by Mother Nature’s beauty and hope that our exciting adventure will encourage you to seek inspiration from Mother Nature, as well.
Stay tuned for our respective posts for “When Fashion and Nature Collide” on Wednesday, March 21st. That’s in 2 days! Tomorrow, I will share an interview with Lisa, herself! You won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to learn more about this fabulous artist, up close and personal!
Today celebrates Day 21 of my 31 Days of Gratitude: Creativity
I love to create! As a child, if I could not be in the woods looking for critters, I would be in my room creating. I am still that creative soul. There is something magical and therapeutic about creating. All of my worries just vanish and become trapped inside thick layers of paint. Painting is not my only “go to” form of creativity. Honestly, I enjoy any form of artistic expression. When an idea pops into my little head, I can’t help but make it a reality! Our laundry room was one of my favorite creative projects…
There was a blank wall above the sink that needed something. But knowing it could end up wet, I had trouble coming up with an idea. Then it hit me…why not create a mural! Then the magic happened…

It is that time of year…Halloween! For the next week, we will transform Indigo Acres into a haunted farm! Nothing bloody and gory, mind you… Just nice, traditional, spooky Halloween!
This year’s theme is “Year of the Vampire”! On Friday night, we will haunt out Indigo Acres for about 40 teenagers, sending them on a scavenger hunt to 12 different themed stations, throughout our property. What is our job during this time? To sneak up on innocent children, when they least expect it. We always invite a few friends to help us out with this task! A fun time is had by all!
Monday night, we headed out to the barn and up the stairs, to the second floor, where all of the spooky “toys” are stored. Granted, Wifey calls them “toys”, but I question this. Some of them are just down right creepy! When we started haunting the farm 3 years ago, I made her promise to turn all of the sound and motion sensors OFF when we are up, working in the barn. I took a deep breath, for it was time to begin the unpacking process and organize the scary “toys” by theme.
It took us about 3 hours to unpack all of our items. Keep in mind, the photos were taken during the first hour of our unpacking!
We have been very busy in the under garage creating, as well! Why not build a few stone columns to add to the cemetery display…
It is late and 6 a.m. will be here very soon… More Halloween updates coming soon! BOO!
