Happy Halloween!!!

I received this wonderful handmade Halloween card from a terrific customer!! Isn't it just the cutest??? And the picture of Robert she used on the card is simply perfect. Thank you!

We went to the pumpkin patch last weekend. It stopped raining for a few hours, so we thought we better get going!! Grandma came over for a visit, so she went with us. And now that I am trying to find a good photo to use, I realize that I didn't get many good shots. That sucks.

Etsy Gift Guide

One of my Twilight/New Moon zippered pouches made it into an Etsy Gift Guide titled "An Inspired Dark Romance." How cool is that?!?!?!?

Bright Star

I really wanted to see Bright Star in the theatre, but it looks like that won't be happening. So I will have to wait until it comes out on DVD. It looks really good. Bright Star is a drama based on the three-year romance between 19th century poet John Keats and Fanny Brawne, which was cut short by Keats’ untimely death at age 25.

This is the book that I borrowed from the library to learn more about Keats. It is 656 pages long, and no, I didn't read the entire book. But it is very detailed, and very informative. Here is a wonderful compilation on the history of John Keats and Fanny Brawne. If you have the chance, read the letters that John wrote to Fanny. They are truly beautiful.

"Happy Windsday"

Piglet: "Happy Windsday, Owl."
Owl: "I wouldn't go so far as to call it a Windsday, just a gentle spring zephyr."

The best Pooh movie ever is 'Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day'. Poor little Piglet gets blown all over Hundred Acre Woods. It's cold and drizzly here today, but not too blustery.

I actually miss watching movies with my kids. Now that they are older they don't want to watch all of their favorites from years past. I guess I'll have to start watching them alone. {sigh}

I managed to start making some Christmas zipper pouches using my new Have A Sheri Berry Christmas fabric. They are really cute, and I ended up placing one pouch in each of my packages that I sent out earlier this week. I realized after the packages were sealed that I forgot to take pictures of the pouches. Oops.

Civil Twilight

I downloaded this week's free song from ITunes, Letters From The Sky by Civil Twilight. I was so impressed by this one song that I downloaded the entire CD from ITunes for only $5.99!!! I think it was well worth the money. I'm not big on buying too many CD's since I usually just borrow from the library. But occassionally I splurge on something NEW. I listen to such a great variety of music, but I really have no idea who to compare Civil Twilight to. I DO know that this CD is what I will be listening to while sewing today.

I also love this video. The lead singer reminds me so much of Robert Pattinson!! Watch it and let me know what you think.

Getting over the sickies and another new bag..

Both of my kids have been sick recently. My son caught the flu that's been running rampant at school. Last Saturday and Sunday he spent in bed sleeping and feeling like crap. Then he missed school on Monday and Tuesday. But my daughter had only a high fever and managed to miss school on Thursday and Friday. So now we are playing catch-up on the homework this weekend.

I was finally able to take pictures of the new bag I made last week before the yuckies hit. This one is available as a design your own bag also, so you can have it made with the fabrics of your choice.

Happy October!!

I love October. I love the seasonal change, the chill in the air, crunching through the leaves, seeing the colorful mums... I've got the World Series on my mind, along with the start of the hockey season. Oktoberfest. Craft fairs. Carving pumpkins. Hayrides. Getting lost in the corn maze. Warming up with Pumpkin Spice Lattes. It's all good.
