I 'm so happy this morning as I watch Wally sitting on his the long grass.  I can smell Fall as it approaches.  LOL I'm thinking about all the complaining I did this summer (I'm not a great appreciator of summer)....and I'm trying to absorb the air...It's different now.  I want to enjoy every minute, every shadow, every smell.

I love crafting this time of year.....waking up in the morning, perform the daily ritual of making coffee and whipped cream...
Then going to my craft room to work on books, jewelry and resisting the temptation to knit the day away...I'll save that for later, maybe outside with more coffee as it gets cooler and cooler :)....wearing my latest pair of socks, mmmmm yessirreee! My idea of a good time! 
I hope you're enjoying my tutorials!  Feel free to request any and if it is in my toolbox of collected knowledge  (or fake it till you make its) I will be happy to oblige! 
 I've been making 
items for a shop in town here but I will also be making them available in my etsy shop


Have a lovely pre-fall day and bring out those craft supplies!  Halloween's acomin'!

Toilet paper......YOU HEARD ME!

Well, the last of the company has left....all the little turkeys have left!
  The house feels very empty right now but, in a good way too.
 Today is a focus on the blog and other social media day!
I've been concentrating on you tube videos as of late and completely neglecting my blog and facebook. Let's face it...I'm not a very computery person.
This week I want to concentrate on.....TOILET PAPER ROLLS.
"Really?" you say
yes, really.
I made the most lovely little gift for my mother for Easter and she loved it so much I thought I'd do a running with it.
Here are some pics of the one I made for her..I was thinking a challenge may be in order

 ...For the month of May, I would like you to come up with a cute toilet paper roll album or card.  There is a video on this blog with instructions to make this very one. I would like YOU to post pics of your finished tp roll projects on this blog in the comments and on my facebook page! What fun!

So get out your lace, pics and paint
and doodahs...and tp rolls!
I want to see what you come up with and here's one rule.....
