Tuesday again! A big hello to the T Gang!
But first, I finished up a couple of pages for this month's new challenge at Art Journal Journey.
The theme is Light and Darkness, hosted by the talented Valerie.
Here's one of them.
So this past weekend while I was doodling away in my journal, I used markers and created this page with colored Christmas lights sparkling in a Christmas tree. Of course making the lights with markers didn't make them very exciting, so I took some paint and painted them so they'd be bright, and then I used some clear glitter glue to make them sparkle and shine. I added the snowflake ornament and the joy word, both which were die cuts.
And for T Day. how about a visit back to my favorite college hang out for pizza and beer?
Last weekend I traveled to Maine with my college sweetheart, now my husband, along with my daughter and her sweetheart. We went to a hockey game, but after the game we went for pizza at the place my husband and I used to regularly stop by on Friday nights for dinner.
Of course no Friday night pizza in college would be complete without a pitcher of beer, What I love about this place (still) is that is it hasn't changed since back in the day. Its the same basement dive where college students always hung out. I think the only difference is now there are a couple of big screen tvs.
You can kind of see bits behind this pitcher in this photo.
Now there are lots of places for the students to hang out at in Orono, Maine, but back in the late 1970's and early 1980's Pat's Pizza was just about the only place to go get pizza and beer. In fact the most famous alumni of my school, Stephen King the author, mentions Pat's Pizza in his book Lisey's Story. I'm sure he used to hang out there to back in his day too.
This is my favorite, double dough (since the crust is very thin), pepperoni and onions. You used to be only able to get this single small pizza's, but now you can get large family size versions. I still like the small ones, which I can't even finish.
Now these 2 are a lot closer to their college days, but they didn't seem to mind hanging out with us "old" folks.
Stop by Elizabeth's blog to see what the rest of the T Gang have been enjoying for drink and food.
Thanks for visiting.
