Happy Hallowinter & Cookies!

Hello again and Happy Halloween!  We have been getting slammed with snow here in the Rockies this week.  I think we got roughly 12" of snow this week. Crazy for October, even at 6,300 ft!  Ellie didn't mind so much and the mister worked from home a couple of days. I baked and painted and spent a few days in my jammies.

I love this spooky little haunted house scene!  It took a couple of days to sketch out and paint but was so fun!

With all this snow we were craving warm, freshly baked cookies so I dug through my recipe archives for something delicious.  These Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Pecan cookies totally hit the spot!  I also painted a couple snowy winter scenes in snow globes. There is something magical about a mini scene captured in a snow globe <3 nbsp="" p="">
I used this recipe for the cookies.  I did adapt them slightly for our elevation.

Here are a few pic of the beautiful snow we got.  Miss Ellie just loves the snow.  She's a Texas dog who identifies as a Polar Bear...

I hope you all had a happy and safe Halloween!

I think you discovered your crafty calling with the watercolor, Erin. Fantastic work! I love each project you share and wonder if you keep them and frame them? Love! You got a bit more snow than we did (you generally do), but I agree, it was a crazy week! Loved the description of Ellie. Too funny. We thought our dog had some Lhasa Apso (got him from a Lhasa rescue group). Turns out, no Lhasa, but he is part American Eskimo! He LOVES the snow! :) Those cookies look delish. Happy weekend!
