October's Circle Journal

I received the October Circle Journal from the Blue Frog Legs Group. This month I got Tina's of Rabbit O'Whimsy. Tina used an old Cookbook for her Circle Journal and theme is "Seasons". The journal instructions were simple: find the month that you received the journal and use those pages designated for that month using the SEASON as your inspiration. The sad part was that I loved a couple of the recipes! In fact, I actually made one of them (the Butternut Squash Ravioli). So I decided to TRY to incorporate my paintings into the recipe book rather than cover them up. I didn't have a huge amount of time to play with the journal given the pace of life these days but I managed to do a few things - like integrate a drawing of my Pear Tree (in the front yard) into a Poached Pear recipe. While I'm not supposed to give away all the elements, here is the painting of fall I did:

I sure hope she likes it :)
