Isn't it funny that a paper plate full of buttons can make me so happy? I love color and I love looking at these.
I've been getting the kids ready for Halloween - I'll post pictures here of them after we get some good shots. My son is going as a Ghostbuster and my daughter as a belly dancer. Not sure yet how I'm going to make that one warm enough!
Here's some new projects I've been working on lately.

Hope you all have a fantastic Halloween weekend! :)

So, it's been a while since I've posted, and I feel so left out of the loop! Thank you everyone, for all your sweet responses to my last post. Reading your comments REALLY cheered me up. I felt much better and got over my sad feelings - so thanks!
Getting this in the mail cheered me too - look what I won from Michele over at This Good Day! Isn't it sweet? And she threw in another beautiful tag that I wasn't expecting - and all of it was beautifully wrapped in tissue tied with seam binding. Thank you so much Michele! I love it!

And here's some new projects I've been working on. I made these trees and I really liked them. I'm going to try some more with non-traditional colors soon like pink and blue. I think that will be cute.
I've also started working on some new stuffed houses - here's a mini one just for fun and I'm working on a bigger one now. I don't know why I love them so much, I just do! Anyone else like houses as much as me? I have bird houses, doll houses, mini houses - all over my house - I think it drives my husband nuts! But I can't help it! I'll post the new ones soon.

And here's another project I forgot to post before - it's my "Jolly" letters from Say It With Letters. I decorated them in a kind of non-traditional color scheme and I can't wait to hang them up on my wall. After Halloween is over, of course!

Have a wonderful week, everyone, and thanks again for your kind comments - you're awesome friends! :)

Stopping to Count My Blessings

Hey everyone - I am feeling a little sentimental tonight and emotional for some reason and just wanted to post to see if anyone was out there! I feel like fall is whipping by and I just can't catch five minutes of time to enjoy it. Fall is my favorite season and it's just so beautiful here in New England. I am spoiled!

Here's some funny pictures of my two kids participating in the Harvest Fest Corn eating contest a week ago! Neither of them won, but it sure was fun to watch them gobble up corn as fast as they could. I am super blessed to have such wonderful kids.

Later we went to see the fireworks and I snapped this photo of my hubby and daughter. It's one of my favorites. It was a super relaxing evening and we just don't get many of those with everyone's busy schedules. So looking at this makes me feel good.
I hope you're all enjoying the fall and taking time with your dear family and friends. :)
