Yup. That about sums up my morning. My list of chores won't seem to shrink on their own. House cleaning....school stuff (my son's school never seems to run out of fundraisers), and other odds and ends I'd rather not be doing. But I had an early start so I thought I deserved a little break.
Are you addicted to pumpkins? I am. Over the course of the month my pumpkin collection keeps growing and growing. We carve a few of them but lots of them stay around until after Christmas! I even leave one under the tree! Pumpkin. I love that word. Just saying it makes me smile. Pumpkin. Pumpkin. Pumpkin.
My favorite little corner in my craft space. This mini cabinet was another thrift shop find. Can you guess what it is? It's an old cassette tape holder! Solid wood (it weighs like 9 lbs!) with little dividers. I thought the dividers would make great mini shelves and they're removable so I can adjust the spacing. I just turned it on it's side and voila! Instant art storage. It's perfect for my ATC stuff and other odds and ends. And it was only $3.98!
Speaking of ATCs. I have a few I need to make for swaps and stuff. I'm doing The Great ATC Witch Swap at Little Messy Miss. Not sure if I'm using this one but I thought I should get started.
Let's see. What else can I share with you this lovely October Wednesday? (Can you tell I'm stalling here?)
This was from last year. In fact it was on Halloween. My son and I decided to stop by our local historic cemetery and do a little bit of ghost hunting. We have a collection of photos of our shadows just like this one. We take them whenever we're visiting an interesting place. This one is my favorite.
And with that I'm dragging myself away from the computer. I must go and find a lovely hat for this weekend and sadly it's not for a joyous occasion. My dearest friend is having a memorial service for her mom and she asked that we all wear a pretty hat in her honor. I hope I can find one I can make even prettier.
I made this for her a few months ago when she was really down and even if it's a sad sweet occasion I'm really looking forward to seeing her.
Have a beautiful creative apple crispy autumn day.
