Crafting Autumn

Friday, October 4, 2013

How is everyone enjoying the change of the season?  Here in Georgia, we have had up and down temperatures.  It has been in the high 70s which is good enough for short boots but still not cool enough for tall boots.  But this week it is getting warmer.  This weekend it is going to be in the high 80s!  The high 80s!!!  Just when I was rotating my closet and brining out the good stuff.   :(

I am not going to let these high temperatures get me down.  We are going apple picking this weekend.  I plan to dress as Autumn as I can without sweating.  I plan to bake apple pie and make apple butter.  I plan on drinking apple cider and serve chili.  Oh and go on a wonderful hike up in North Georgia which I am praying the temperatures will be cooler.

I promise to share pictures next week of our Summer Autumn Apple Picking Adventure.  I hope everyone is wearing Autumn colors.  We will see how that goes.  :)

September and October hav inspired me to craft.  I have started making coffee coozie to celebrate my obsession with coffee, espresso and Pumpkin Spice Latte.  I am thinking of making ones for Autumn, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

Here are the Autumn Ones:










Aren't they cute?  You can purchase them at my Etsy store here.

I have also started crafting Halloween decoration for the house.  I, of course, had that have some Halloween Bunting.



Now I am thinking a Halloween wreath and some other spooky decorations.  I will be crafting like crazy.  October, November, and December are my craftiest months.  I already feel like I am falling behind.  I do not even know what our Christmas card is going to look like this year.   And am I even going to make and send out Thanksgiving cards this year?  Maybe I can just send something Thanksgiving inspired to family and friends instead of a card.  Oh decisions.

I am also crafting invitations and decorations for 3 baby showers.  I am not complaining I love to be busy.

Well, I better go and start planning.  I need to make the pie dough so it will be ready after apple picking. I also need to make vanilla ice cream to go with the Apple Pie.    Everyone is going to be starving after everything.  It is going to be a great weekend.

Talk to you soon,
