  14. So glad to know that people have enjoyed this! Mollie's right -- it's better than trick or treat -- it's eye candy instead of the sugary kind!!

  15. I love all of the Halloween paintings. I've always enjoyed the Easter peeps that you guys have done and it's fun to see you've expanded the number of artists and added a holiday.
    Also, it was nice meeting you at the NWS demo last week. It's nice to be able to put a face with the name too. Wasn't Linda a fun demonstrator?
