Autumn With Matthew Mead 2011

The nights and early mornings are starting to feel a bit cooler. I love this time of year when the days are still beautiful and warm but the anticipation of back-to-school and Autumn is lurking just around the corner. If, like me, you can't wait to drag out your Fall decor and start cozying-up your nest, then take a peak into Autumn With Matthew Mead !

And if this featured artist doesn't tickle your Halloween fancy then you'd better check your pulse! She and her paper mache' figures are just too adorable for words!!
See more of Johanna Parker's work!

Pop on over to Matthew's blog to see what other fun things he, his wife and the rest of their talented crew are up to in this issue! You will also be able to order the current issue of this wonderful book-a-zine as it is not sold in stores. So run....don't walk to Autumn With Matthew Mead !!

GreenGate Winter Catalog

GreenGate is a company in Denmark that carries THE CUTEST kitchen and housewares items. I haven't found where you can buy their things in the US yet but that's probably a good thing since I would be plum broke buying everything in their catalog! You can take a sneak peak at The GreenGate Winter Catalog 2011 by clicking here . You'll LOVE it!!!

Summer Sewing

I actually was able to do a little sewing this week! Not getting much done this summer since the past week we have had a fun family reunion going on out at the lake. I'm not crushed not be able to sew since last summer that's all I did, getting ready for The Creative Connection. Patterns to write, proof and print, purses and aprons to sew, packing and shipping 14 large boxes to Minneapolis ahead of the show...exhausting but a great experience!

Made this diaper bag for my nephew's wife for her baby shower this week. It's always fun to make a bag for someone you love and customize it according to their style and personality.
This pink bag I gave my other niece (double baby shower...there must be something in the water in Seattle where they live) since she loves bright pink. Praying for healthy deliveries and healthy babies!!
Is there really anything better than brand new babies?!!
Nope...sure isn't!!
