So disappointed

It was never my intention to be a once a month blogger. I am disappointed that it has turned out this way. Even when I have been creating.  I will have to try harder to at the very least post twice a month.

A couple of weeks ago, I went to Scrapbook Art and did their make-and-take cards.  Below are the ones I made there. I also purchased two kits from the cards offered last month.  I made one of them but was disappointed when I went to make the second card, they didn't give me an appropriate piece of printed card stock. It's suppose to show birds flying over flowers but it looks like I got the flip side of birds, flower and other things. It doesn't look right at the top so I need to find something appropriate to place there.

I also started Christmas gifts last week went daughter #1 was on vacation.  The project needed to sit for a few hours and I had to wait until she was gone to start it.

I've been decorating the house for fall too.  Gathering things here and there.  I picked up a pretty good sized glass candle holder at Michaels for $3 but didn't like the color so I spray painted it last night. That and a frame I picked up in clearance from Hobby Lobby now reside on my mantle. I also found a pumpkin on Pinterest that I liked and since I have an over abundance of fake pumpkins (from my sons wedding last fall), I spray painted it an almond color and it will soon reside next to my fireplace. I'm also toying with making a banner of some sort to string along the mantle. I don't know….

Husband, sister and I went to Amish country last week-end and I saw this cute little 4-block set that spelled FALL, I want to recreate it but am having trouble locating the paper mache boxes. I'll have to look on the internet and see what I can come up with.

Also, on the calendar for October, I am going to make my chocolate covered cherries. I always wait too late into the season to make these and their usually not ready until Christmas. I figure by starting them in October, they will be ready by Thanksgiving.
