  1. Your string cheese broomsticks are hilarious - such a cool idea! I will watch your video about how to clean blending stumps tomorrow. Have a great weekend.

  2. Oh what fun. I am looking forward to seeing what people create.

  3. Hm, I never seen the The Headless Horseman. But yours seem to have a spare one :)

  4. Hello Rain,
    I always enjoy your art work. The cheese broomsticks are cute. Take care, have a great day!

  5. Rain, I think the Headless Horseman is one of my favorite Halloween associated characters (The Johnny Depp movie continues to grow on me in this regard).

  6. Maybe by next week I'll be able to share! Till then, happy week!

  7. Cute broomsticks and fun headless horseman!

  8. Wonderful art, Rain.
    Love the headless horseman and
    the cheese broom sticks are so cute. What a great idea.
    Fun mockumentary as well. I really enjoyed it!
    Enjoy the weekend!

  9. Lovely art, and the fun string cheese broomsticks look great.
    Happy Thursday wishes

    All the best Jan

  10. I love the silhouette of the headless horseman and Porky Pig makes a great wicked pumpkin. I watched your "How to Clean Your Blending Stumps" ... silly me, I would just throw them out and buy more when they stopped working. You just saved me a few dollars, my friend ... Thank you :) And I love your string cheese brooms. I would have never thought of doing that, but now I will as we all love string cheese around here( What did you use to tie around the broom?). You make me smile every time I come here. You are the best!
