Around here the house it is feeling like we are getting into fall mode too.
Sunflowers are in the kitchen,
Knitting hats for charity has resumed,
and today I even ventured into the kitchen to bake a cake.
Wow, that almost never happens anymore. I think it was a phone conversation with Susan that sparked the interest. My boxed cake mix will not compare to her home baked cherry pie, as in picking cherries off the tree!!! Now that is a pioneer woman!
On the scrappy front, I have decided to do an 8.5 x 11 album about me! Not really about me per say but, rather things I like and what I think. Here is my first LO for it.
A simple fact that I like this brand of wool to knit with. The Cosmo Cricket "Odds and Ends" line was perfect! I created the title by cutting a banner out of the wool packaging. I finally used my new typewriter and was happy about how much journaling I was able to fit in a small spot. I did some machine sewing and left some long messy threads in true Marcy Penner fashion!
Here is the sketch I used from Page Maps!
In other scrappy news, I think I just might start to do a bit of this.....
I picked up these acrylic paints on sale at Michaels for $0.41 each. Why pay $6 for the real Sprinklers & Mr. Huey? Susan just waters her acrylic down and splatters away. Oh so random and uncontrolled! It goes against all my scrappy practices but I'm kind of excited about it! :)
Wishing you all sunny crispy autumn days and cozy nights!! Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
