It’s Inktober…….again. Like an endless loop on Groundhog Day.

I am a week behind with my postings but that’s ok because I figured it’s easier on your in boxes, lol.

I am working on three simultaneous daily tasks. These are done every day just to keep the creative juices flowing.

One is my daily postcard to mom. I am combining the Inktober prompts with my postcards and I am adding color with Arteza brush pens.

I am including the back of the postcards so that you can read what I sent my mom.

Day Prompt – Ring

Day 2 Mindless

Day 3 Bait

Day 4 Frozen

Day 5 Build

Day 6 Husky

Day 7 Enchanted

Back to school

Here is another “Little Witch and Kitty” post. I don’t know if I will be posting these every day since October is in a week and I may going gung ho on a mixed media project.

Today I remembered to photograph the actual back of the postcard…hopefully you can read it without me having to transcribe it.😊

For those of you just tuning in, these postcards get mailed to my mom who lives in assisted living in another state.

Yesterday was the first day of Autumn

This post was supposed to go out yesterday.

John and I have been very busy going through all of our belongings to reduce what we have, then putting it out for yard sales. It’s been taking some time and it pulls me away from my desk. I still create daily but I keep getting pulled away from the technology. Hence the lack of posts.

The Little Witch and her kitty have returned. They have been doing lots of things since last autumn. The Little Witch has been gardening and growing herbs and mushrooms. She’s been studying herbology to understand the healing and potion properties of plants. Kitty has been helping, usually by knocking over flower pots chasing wildlife and flipping pages in textbooks.

I mailed this out to my mom yesterday with a little story on the back and stuffed it in an envelope before I realized that I meant to take a photo of the back so I would remember the story. Oh well. Mom gets her own version of the story.

Little witch and kitty

(I almost left the poor little witch and her kitty in pilgrim land).

The little witch was able to return from early America with the help of a witch who’s been dodging Salem witch hunters. The little witch used her historical knowledge of the time period to give the early American witch some useful information about heading to some place much better for her long term health.

Upon returning, Thanksgiving was in full swing with all the witches celebrating. Kitty managed to “acquire” a full turkey leg.

The season of the Witch is winding down. The witches are now preparing for Winter Solstice celebrations along with Christmas. They are making bayberry candles with good luck spells to sell to people who want to burn them on Christmas. They are blessing tree farms so that the warmth of the trees bring love and warmth to the people who bring them into their homes to decorate. They are making bunches of greens and other natural items to sell that bring harmony, health and happiness into homes for the holidays.

The little witch and kitty will be busy during the holiday season.

At least kitty gets to have this quiet moment to enjoy her turkey leg.

Howdy Pilgrim?

The little witch was practicing her spells and somehow wound up in a 17th century Puritan village. She and kitty are a bit shocked and unfortunately they need to find a 17th century witch to help them.

I left the brush markers behind in the family Florida house that I was using when I started this series. I bought them so I would have markers in Florida. I have Tombows in my studio in NY. The Tombows are giving me some problems and the difference in paper is also creating an issue. I might try different paper tomorrow.
