Harvest Blessings

Happy Hump Day! Things on my mind today....

  • The weather has been gorgeous these past few weeks, and I love having my doors & windows open!
  • I'm very much enjoying the new craft room paint color. I re-arranged this room a few different ways yesterday, and am happy I've decided to put my desk at the window. With it open and the trees right outside, I am loving watching the birds and squirrels play.
  • Re-arranged the entrance hall (it's a large hall - 8 feet wide and almost the length of the entire house - it's really not even a hall because it's open to our living space)... anyway... I moved the piano, chairs, couch section, decorations, etc a few different ways yesterday and finally stopped with an arrangement I like. I even sat down and banged on the piano a little while this morning. If you were walking by the house and heard the clatter, I apologize. Lots of wrong notes and slow finger movements, but hey, I enjoyed it so that's something, right?
  • Bonnie & I enjoyed our cool walk this morning in the bright sunshine. She led the way. Did you know that when we walk around 2 blocks at our house, we go past a Baptist church and a Methodist church? I'm not complaining at all. I just think it's interesting that there are 2 churches within a couple of blocks of each other. Especially since we live in such a very small town.
  • I cut and paper pieced 4 Halloween Teddies this morning. The file is from KaDoodle Bug Designs (which you can find HERE). They are so cute! I haven't cut out all the different designs included in that cut file yet, but here is a photo of the ones I paper pieced this morning.

I guess I better get on with the card I want to show you and stop jabbering on and on about nothing. :)

This card is made especially for Sweet Sunday Sketch Ch (sketch - I turned it - hope that's okay), {PIN}spirational (photo inspiration), and Stampin' Royalty (photo inspiration).
