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)
I'm a fan of quick and simple cards. Sometimes those over the top cards are just too much. Same thing when it comes to pattern paper. Wild, crazy designs and bold colors are usually not my thing. I had to see the new Petals and Paisley's Designer Series Paper in action before I ordered it myself. I'll admit, some of these patterns are just not me. That's ok though because every sheet is 2-sided. I may not be fond of those giant paisley's, but the … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday – Totally Trees
We are inching towards the First Day of Fall, but it's still hot here. Southern California typically gets it's heat mid-August and it goes straight through til October 31st. Our Fall weather typically starts November 1st. Frankly, I would love a little cool weather right now. One of things that we don't get here in Southern California is those amazing Fall colors. We just don't get cold enough for the trees to turn those bright, bold colors. I … [Read more...] about Totally Trees
The First Day of Fall is rapidly approaching and frankly, it can't come soon enough. I much prefer cooler temperatures to the sweaty 100' heat we had today. I pulled out my Fall Wreath today hoping I could convince Mother Nature to give us a little break on the heat. I have a lot of seasonal decor that I've made through the years and this Fall Wreath is one of my favorites. I actually made this last Fall, but I haven't had a chance to share … [Read more...] about Coming Soon… Fall
