Welcoming Fall a little early :)

This past week has been a relief from all the hot weather here in MD. I am so ready to welcome Fall. The pumpkin farm, the changing of the leaves on the trees, the smell of pumpkin and pecan pies in the over. I can't wait to start decorating for Halloween and Thanksgiving here at home. My chidren can actually go out and jump in the leaves soon while I enjoy my coffee on the porch. I love Fall and the crisp nights and breezy days :) Geez, I sound like a corny old magazine, don't I? lol

I am so tired of the mosuitoes and flies, cleaning the pool, and sweating! I want to put on a jacket and take a walk or just be lazy on the back deck. I also can't wait to start crocheting again. I've been so busy with birthdays and work that I haven't gotten anything done! That will be changing soon, believe me. I have some ideas for my crochet stash that I want to get started on soon.

I also want to get baking again. I know alot of my MJF friends are great bakers and crafters. So, if you have any great pie recipes of patterns that you want to share - please let me know!

I am going to be sorting through my stash soon so I'm hoping to have a giveaway or some things to barter. I'll keep everyone posted.

That's it for now. I hope everryone os enjoying some nice, cool weather and are welcoming Fall like I am.

Take care and Happy Crafting!!

Birthday, birthdays, and more birthdays....

This past month and next week are filled with so many birthdays around here! We had a party for my grand daughter last weekend, next weekend will be a party for my oldest sone (he'll be 18) and my oldest daughter (she'll be 25). Not to mention my dad's birthday last month, my neice, and my boss. Whew! That's alot of birthday cards...lol

I have been so busy with work that I barely have time to get on here. I wanted to stop in and let everyone know that I am still around :) My hubby got laid off a few months ago and I had to take on more hours at work. He's back to work now, but I'm still working evenings and a few hours during the day.

The last two days here have been beautiful! The weather has been perfect and Fall is in the air!! I can't wait to see the leaves change and put out my Fall decorations. Halloween is right aroound the corner!

So, if I seem MIA for a while in between posts, I'm just busy. I'll try to get on here and post a few words as often as I can.

Oh, by the way...check out the cake that I made for my grand daughter's 3rd birthday!! Maybe I should have my own Food Network show?? No, I'm just kidding...lol

Take care and Happy Crafting everyone!!
