it's been a while

I've been crafty - but mostly stuff for presents and I can't share yet or forget to take pictures and have already sent them off! So, I thought I'd share a couple pics from pie breakfast this year... I was in heaven! I took a key lime, a turtle cheesecake, and a cherry - with cherries I picked, pitted and canned this past summer. There was also lemon meringue, blueberry, strawberry, a chocolate one just to name a few... I was too full for dinner that afternoon! One of the best Turkey day traditions EVER!

Pie for breakfast?

I made this card in honor of my friend Tiffany - her family hosts a Thanksgiving Pie Breakfast on Thanksgiving morning. Sure there is pie after dinner, but this way you can really enjoy the pie without being stuffed from the meal! What a great idea! She said her mom once made something like 15 pies! (or something like that!) just about any kind you can imagine! mmmmm - I've started making my list of pies I want for thanksgiving this year -- we definitely will be borrowing her tradition! Pumpkin, Apple, Marion berry, perhaps a chocolate cream pie or maybe a lemon cream or meringue....this list could go on and on.... What is your favorite pie?

I love it when the colors start to change. There are some trees just down the road from me - every year I say I'm going to take picture of the beautiful colors, but I never get to it! Hopefully this will be the year!

Happy October!

I love the Little people from LAD - the witch is one of my favs! I made this simple little basket for my daughter's teacher for Halloween. I plan to fill it with a caramel corn mix. Adding the rhinestones gave it just the right touch of bling! and of course you can't go wrong with ribbons! Check out LAD's project of the month page for more details on how to make it!

Christmas cards?

When do you start on your Christmas cards? I usually start in late summer or early autumn. I've been making cards here and there, but haven't settled yet on the one that I will mass produce. This little guy is from the Love and Joy labels set from LAD.

Fall is in the air

Even though it's been a warm week (in the 80's) I'm ready for fall - crisp, cool mornings warm afternoons - I love it. This is one of my favortie fabrics - it is all that I have left of it, so I decided to use it to inspire my card - warm fall colors.

are you ready for Halloween? I'm ready to get out my Halloween decorations! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for! This image is from Lizzie Anne Designs, so fun and the paper is from a retired pack from Stampin' Up.
