the seasons, they are a changing...


If it were possible to deny the end of summer is near, my grandson starting kindergarten yesterday just may dash the last hope of that not being true.  Yep, the seasons they are a changing...

The buzz in my craft room has definitely taken an autumn turn.

I was asked to teach at a good friends birthday party in a couple of weeks with her only request being that it be Halloween in theme.  My mind got to whirling and twirling and I came up with this cute and kind of spooky mixed media canvas.

The paper is from Graphic 45 and I love that it has just the right amount of cuteness to ghoulishness ratio. 

I am preparing a few of the party decorations as well and will be sharing those with you soon.

And for those of you wondering, grandma made it through the first day of kindergarten with only a few tears shed and a little bit of moping.  Grandboy on the other hand, had a wonderful day!

    Working on your crafts might be the best way to chase the "blues" away, dear friend!!!
