So anyways - like i said - ITS OCTOBER - and I LOVE IT. My favorite time of the year - i love the fall - the holidays - the atmosphere - all the surroundings the come with the season - ecpecially the smells...........so I did my yearly batch of salsa the other day - started at 9:00am and finished at 1:00am - yeah - you read that right - by the time it cooked down, i bottled it and processed it all - it was 1 in the morning. UGH! I'm glad its done though - and i got 34 pints out of the deal - which is alot.
Also got the hair darkened. I usually have blonde highlights in the spring/summer months and then go darker in the fall/winter. I was a little early this year - but was ready for the change. I like the way it turned out. Did some scrapbooking with my fun new Fancy Pants products - This is the new Little Sprout line and it went so perfectly with my little neice Corinne's dress. Isn't she a doll. The Kraft background is from the girl kraft line. I got a little crazy with the mists and paints - but i was fun! I also created the flower with a strip of paper, a strip from an old book page i tore out - and then i stamped the circle center with a grid stamp to give it a little texture. The Precious title is one of Fancy Pants glitter cuts.By the way - i'm lovin the floss by Karen Foster - i bought like 6 colors - it adds the perfect touch to cards and buttons like this one. Okay - this cat glitter cut has to be one of my faves. It was fun doing some halloween stuff. I used the new Trick or Treat line for these next projects. The scalloped circle is torn out of the Trick or Treat journal notebook. The title is cut out with Sillhouette. Another card using Trick or Treat from Fancy Pants. The ribbon, stickers, rubon's and patterned paper are all from the new line. The glitter letter stickers are Pink Paislee!This project was so fun - and the kids LOVE it. I bought this tree last fall and never got around to doing this - and i'm glad i waited because these papers were perfect for it. I cut the little monsters out of the patterned paper - used rubon's, chipboard and stickers to create this fun little tree (which happens to be on the top 10 list by views over at 2peas). Not voted on for faves or anything but people are looking - thats good enough - right! I was pretty excited when i went to the gallery and saw it.I put it on the end table right when you walk in the front door - the kids just think its the funnest thing. We've pretty much decorated the house - i've got a few things missing that must be in storage that i need to hunt down - but other than that we're done.
I should probably head to bed - i've got the flu - or strep - or something. I was pretty much out of commision all day yesterday - MIL and my mom took care of the kids - I couldn't move - my body hurt sooooooooooo bad, i still have the swolen glands and a sore throat but feel much better. Today is WORLD CARD MAKING DAY and i managed to do a few cards - I will post them tomorrow! Dean has gone Deer Hunting for 5 days - which means - if i feel better - there will be alot of scrappin going on here. YIPEE!
Thanks for stopping by....
