Good Morning From Rainy Texas!

Good Morning Everybody!

Sorry it's been a few days since I blogged.  Thank you for your emails asking if I'm OK.  I'm doing great, Just trying to finish off my obligations to DT's....:)

It's an incredibly slow rainy day here today.   To me when this happens, I get that same cozy feeling when those rare and wonderful snow days come our way.  Actually, ice has us staying home more than the snow but once again...it's a rarity!  So this rainy cozy morning, I thought what better time to do up the house for this first round of holiday decorations ...Halloween.

This morning I have a few DT projects to put the finishing touches on and then....I'm going to get started.   I can't wait.  This year I will use some of my old stuff, but I wanted to challenge myself with throwing in things I make.  So....(I think I have officially adopted the word "so,".... so be it!) I will be posting through out the weekend some possible projects and their home upon my tables and shelves amongst my Halloween collections.  See, I want to use so, so bad right now...I'm going to do it...So, keep coming back to see how the house is transforming...

Spoooky!

Thanks Y'all!

  9. The only better way to spend a slow rainy day is curled up with hot chocolate and a good book -- guessing hot chocolate isn't yet in your mindset! I'll be checking back -- and packing! Wild Women's weekend next weekend, hope to get major construction done on 2 roll top desks for Christmas presents!

  13. It's rainy here in the Charlotte,NC area. I just got home from being at my daughters Irish Dance studio and I am planning on getting in my sweat pants and working on my art journal using my new inktense pencils and blocks and then taking a nap. I love having a gloomy day every now and again. Have a great day. (((( ))))
