September is finally here!

Happy September! Fall is in the air. That means....brand new fall and winter catalog and prints for Thirty-One, cooler days hopefully (fingers crossed - I do live in Georgia!), College Football (1st game the 4th - Go Dawgs! -which means tailgating with my neighbors) lots of crafting for gift giving (somehow I don't ever get as much accomplished as I intend too! - there's always next year!), decorating with the upcoming holidays Halloween & Christmas (both are equally my favorite!!) and lots of comfort foods and goodies. If you can't tell, September is the kick off to my favorite time of year. I love to see the leaves change colors and everything around me go to those earthy jewel tones. Plus there's a whole Lotta Black and Red around the house-woof woof!!!

Here are a few crafty things I've been working on.

The first is my new cover for my Silhouette Cameo. It is sparkly and pretty and makes me happy. And Sil (that's what I call her) is oh so deserving. In case you aren't familiar with the Silhouette Cameo - Its a cutting machine for vinyl, fabric, cardstock, etc. This cutting file was provided by Terri Johnson and I blinged it up a bit with the glitter htv (heat transfer vinyl) and added the scissors. I follow Terri on her blog terrijohnsoncreates. She is oh so talented and a wealth of knowledge, which she is so eager and willing to pass along without hesitation. A crafting friend and I are actually going to be attending a 3-day Silhouette retreat she is hosting January 2016 in good ole Savannah, Georgia. I can hardly wait.



These are a few ornaments I have been trying out!  Sorry for some reason I can't get the pictures to turn right side up...I told you I'm a work in progress!!!  Aren't they cute though!  Grinch is my fave!!

I do have a little news I want to share....a very special, dear and close friend of mine (can't call her my bestie, because my son claims that title- heeheehee), I really consider her my sister anyway...she and her husband are expecting!

So I'm going to be an AUNT!!! So..that means...I'll be crafting baby items too, which I luv to do anyway.  I can't wait to find out what they are having..I know they are leaning for a girl...I'm leaning for a boy (I'm biased) but as long as its healthy we'll all be happy!!!  By the way....Did I tell you I LOVE FALL???
