Remember all those leaves that I die cut a few weeks ago? This is the project for which they were intended. I made several of these Fall wall hangings for the Boutiques I was working this year. I knew I needed a bunch of leaves, but wasn’t totally sure of how many and in what colors. So, I die cut a lot of leaves, using up tons of scrap paper. I may have gotten a little carried away...I found the burlap canvases at a local store and covered them … [Read more...] about It’s Still Fall
So I’m a little behind getting out my thank you cards to customers that made a purchase in September. But, better late than never! Actually, I did mail them earlier this week. I wanted to give them a chance to arrive before I posted the card here. These cards are very quick to make, especially if you already die cut a bunch of these leaves and haven’t used them on other projects yet. The Jute twine is wrapped around the Crumb Cake … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday – September Thanks
So Fall actually started ten days ago, but I am just getting around to adding some Fall decor to the house. It's been 85'+ most of the last two weeks so it's a little tough to get into the mood of "sweater weather" when it's really closer to "sweaty weather". To help put everyone in the mood for chillier weather, I am releasing my next Class To Go, which is the Fall Banner. And you are going to love this quick and easy project that I've … [Read more...] about New Class To Go – Fall Banner
Okay, I admit it. I am addicted to coffee. I love all different flavors and styles. My favorite is a Flat White, closely followed by a Latte or Cafe au Lait. Mochas? I'm there. Blended? Yep. Hot? Of course. Iced? Definitely. But there is one coffee I am not fond of even though I try to convince myself every year when all the hubbub starts. It is the Pumpkin Spice Latte. I feel like I'm missing something because everyone I know loves it. … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday – It’s PSL Time
I made it back from OnStage yesterday. I always feel like I need a vacation once our vacation is over. We end up staying up way too late and we always have to get up early to get going in the morning. I might have to get a tshirt that says: I survived! I promise I will share some photos from our OnStage experience very soon. And I can’t share my projects that I made for the displays for a few more days. Don’t worry, I have lots of other … [Read more...] about So Thankful
The Holiday Boutique is finally here. It starts this afternoon and continues all day Saturday. I have been a crazy crafting fiend lately. After all the long hours I've put into creating products for the booth, I am so thankful that I wasn't the only person creating products. Making one of something doesn't take a lot of time. But making a dozen or even several dozen of something takes hours. And hours. Several weeks ago, I shared my Fall … [Read more...] about Hooray, Hooray, Today is the Day!
And no, I'm not referring to those awful exercises. I'm talking about the last week before the Holiday Boutique and working on my projects for the OnStage Displays in three weeks (yikes!). Everything else is on the back burner for now. I'm foreseeing more than a few late nights in the coming weeks. Here is a quick peak at my progress this past weekend... Lots of antlers and gold paint. Those four gold circles are actually slices from a … [Read more...] about It’s Crunch Time
Our Fall weather really doesn't start until October 31st but we have had some chilly evenings the last couple days and we'll have a couple more this week. Yay! There is nothing better than opening the windows on a nice cool Fall evening. It makes me want to snuggle up under the blankets with my heater. :) By Thursday, it'll be 95' again here. Ugh. It's so hard to make Fall cards and projects when you're wearing shorts and flip flops and have … [Read more...] about Fall Weather is Finally Here (for the next three days)
