Happy Sunday,

I thought I would post today a few of the home decor items I have made for Halloween and Thanksgiving.  I still have an Autumn banner to make for by the door, then it's on to Christmas gifts for friends and family.

This banner I made to hang on the wall by the front door.  Loved the papers and the glitter around the pinwheels.

I made this using Bo Bunny's letters.  This was hung on the downstairs bathroom door.

This banner I made using the House of 3 Monagram kit.  I placed pinwheels with buttons in the center between each letter.  The family likes this one.

For this wall hanging I used the Bo Bunny Letters again with some Maya Mist and Tim Holtz distress Ink.
It turned out ok to me and is hanging on the bathroom door to replace the Boo hanging.

Well that is it for tonight.  I will post the Autumn banner when I finish.  Also look this week for some challenge cards.

Thankful for..... making it thru the Nor'Easter with only one piece of missing siding.

Today I have for you pictures from over my back fence, and from our driveway yesterday.  At some times during the day we had wind gusts of up to 75 miles per hour.

People trying to kayak in the road. Looking over my back fence.

Taken from the end of my driveway. Into the road & into the cul-de-sac.

The other pictures I have for you are the first of my December Daily Album.  To learn more about this project visit Ali Edwards blog here.  I have enjoyed gathering product for the last few months and using up some of my stash also.

Enjoy your day.

Thankful...... for being inside and warm today.

We here on the east coast of Virginia are having a wicked Nor'easter that has become stationary over us.  So there is no school today and we can't get out of our neighborhood due to the roads are flooded.  My cul-de-sac is a pond at the moment.  I will have pictures to share tomorrow.

Stay dry wherever you are.

Happy November & Veteran's Day!

I have been busy getting the cards, notebooks and Holiday planners mailed off to my Mom for her Craft Fair this weekend in No. VA.  I forgot to take pictures of the notebooks and Holiday Planner (made from PTI Take Note Set).  I will be making a few more and I will photograph those.  The next three cards were in the box that I sent off.  The first card was made from PTI Holiday button bits and all product used on this card were from Papertrey Ink. I just love the veritality of this set and there product are superb quality.  Check them out by clicking on the blinkie in the right side bar, you won't be disappointed.  The second and third cards are the same, one I tied a bow and the other I did a knot.  I liked the way they both turned out.  The CS is Bazzill, DSP; Art Warehouse, Danielle Johnson, stamps; Inkadinkado, Ink; Kaleidacolor Pad (Autumn Leaves), Ribbon; Martha Stewart.  I will be posting these in my etsy shop tomorrow by 5pm.

Have a great rest of the evening.
