delicious autumn anticipation

Have you had a chance to see all the amazing Artful Bag ATC's my ladies created this month? They are all so wonderfully talented and just simply lovely lovely people. A few of our ladies from the east coast are dealing with that horrible hurricane so we might not hear from them for a while. Let's hope that they are all safe and sound. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

When I looked at the calender stuck to my fridge this morning I was almost surprised to find it still said August. I have been happily immersed in Autumn anticipation. Hunting for fall magazines, crafting Halloween goodies and prepping for Autumn blog parties.

One of the best things I have discovered about blogging is that it's allowed me to really enjoy my favorite season.

Before I started blogging and sharing my art I pretty much relied on retail shops to get into the Autumn spirit.

But with a whole community of pumpkin crazed lovelies to share my obsession with, I truly enjoy every minute of Autumnal bliss.

I have had a surge of creative motivation....crafting with paper, fashioning pointy hats and grunging up miniature skellies. The house painting is on hold indefinitely....for now. Curse these nasty headaches I keep getting.

But my work table is filling up with finished projects for Halloween challenges and props I just couldn't wait to get to. I offer you a very sneaky peak below :)

In a few days I can turn the calendar and finally welcome September. Yay September, followed by my absolute favorite month of all...OCTOBER! Isn't it sooo exciting?

It's pumpkin time again!

Oh and I have a little preview of something I have in store for October. It's not official yet but it's been on my mind as lots of you have been asking about it.

Something to think about after we put away our blenders :)

Hope you are all having a lovely and safe weekend.
