Liquid Death, a Skeleton, and Some ATCs

Do you ever fall for super creative marketing?

I couldn't resist buyigg this Sparkling Water after seeing the name and the image on the can.

This water is almost as expensive as beer, but it is soooooo cool.  

Even the wording on the can is cool - here is a little bit of it:

"This infinitely recyclable can of stone-cold sparkling water came straight from the Alps to murder your thirst."

"Once cracked open, no thirst is safe from Liquid Death."

Love it!  It is also my ticket to T-day over at Elizabeth's Blog.

I plan to serve this water at our family Halloween party.  We are going to do a skeleton charcuterie  board too.  We bought a cool skelton at Target to fill with candy and treats on our board  The Grandsons all loved it, and one of them strapped him the car seat for the ride home?

I am still on an ATC kick.  Here are three versions I did for a multi-level Back to School Swap - I signed up for three diffeent ones.

1.  The top one is a book cover theme  - we were supposed to come up with an ATC that looks like an old fashioned book cover.  I had a lot of fun with that one.  I kept this as it wa my favorite. 

2.  The left one was for a cool kid/nerdy kid  theme.  I used a book page, part of a sheet music page, a TH paper doll, some bright ink, and a fun title. 

3.  The right one was for a swap focusing on school supplies.  I kept this one because it was so cute with the mouse but also because it ddn't have a school supply other than the library card. I had intended to add  pencil image, but coudn't seem to find it.  

Happy T-day!

    Love your ATCs! Cool!!!! :-) Love this one especially.

    Happy T-Day, don´t walk with the skeleton, Hugz! ;-)

  6. That will be a fantastic Halloween theme party. Beautiful artwork.

  7. What an interesting can! I don't like water unless it is sparkling. And a cool can....well, that would draw me in. I bet your party is going to be fantastic.
    Beautiful ATC's.
    Happy Tea Day,

  8. That is a cool design for a can of water, and I love the pic of the skeleton buckled in safely for the ride home:):) Fab looking ATCs! I used to do lots of swaps over many years and really enjoyed it but have given it up. Enjoy the Halloween fun and happy T day!

  9. Nancy I love the name of the water ideal for halloween
    I love the fish although they are all gorgeous
    Our DIL is mad on decorating the house for every holiday, she would love the skeleton I’m sure
    Happy T Day

  10. How funny, Liquid Death lol. I'm not sure what I would be expecting to be in that can with a name like that but not water lol. Love your ATCs, I can never find anything I want at the time either. Happy T Day! Elle/EOTC xx

  11. That is some water! I love the lettering on the can. The Halloween party sounds like it will be lots of fun. I hope you take pictures for us. So cute your grandson making sure Skelly is safe for the car ride. Fun ATCs, too. Happy T Day

  12. I am late visiting because my electricity was out from shortly before 5:00 p.m. last night for around 19 hours. My apologies if you think I had forgotten or was ignoring you.

    I love those ATCs. You are definitely on an ATC kick.

    I look forward to seeing your Halloween party. That skeleton will surely liven up the place. And that sparkling water was to die for!! I can see why you will be serving it for drinks at the Halloween party. Thanks for sharing your ATCs and your sparkling water with us for T this Tuesday, dear Nancy.

  13. That is one cool can of water. The name is perfect for Halloween. And it is perfect for an October T post. Your grandson is adorable too. I like his idea to strap in the skeleton. And fabulous ATC's also. Hope it was a wonderful T day Nancy. Hugs-Erika

  14. Fun ATCs! It's nice to do those swaps. The drink indeed looks very cool - and the skeleton in the car seat made me laugh.

  15. Liquid death, such a cool name and can :)
    Great ATC's I must admit the top one is my favourite ♥

  16. Ohh I am with you I would buy the water for the can. Very cool. Love the car partner all strapped. The art is just beautiful.

  17. What a cool way to market their sparkling water! Your ATCs are wonderful. I like the variety.

  18. That's a clever bit of marketing. You are actually just paying for the can (as water doesn't cost anything). But I can see it is fun.
    Your ATCs are beautiful. No wonder you want to keep them yourself!
    Sorry I'm late but as you regulars know, we are away on Tuesday, and today we had a power cut so I'm even later (It's nine pm)
    A belated happy T-Day,

  19. Nancy, that drink does sound good! I never heard of it. Those ATCs are great. Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful week!

  20. How cool is the water and the can…love it and also the skeleton. Love how your DGS strapped him in the car. I bet it will look fantastic on the board for Halloween. I love all of the ATCs. The fish one does look like leather. Happy Tuesday Nancy. Sending hugs. Jx

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
