It's Sweater Weather Time!

Today's the day!  Fall has arrived!
It's probably my favorite season.  I love the crisp evenings...I love the smell of a crackling fire....I love hoodies and schmoodgy blankets and I really love watching the leaves change into gorgeous reds and golds.  There's just something about fall that feels like "home" to me. 
 I guess that sounds a little weird.  hahaha  Oh well...

Anyway....today is the first day of fall and it was gorgeous outside here in Virginia.  I not only did a 3.5 mile "wog" (walk/jog) but I spent time in my studio creating.  How awesome is that??  I have just 48 days til my very first 5K and I'm working hard to get ready.  I'm not gonna lie...it helps a LOT that its going to be at Disney World.  :-)  I'll be running "Mickey's Jingle Jungle 5K" at Animal Kingdom with my friend Stephanie.  God bless her for doing this with me.  She and her husband, Alex will also be running the  
"Wine and Dine Half Marathon" while we are there too.  
Whew!!  Not THAT'S an awesome friend!

Ok...so I digress...  Are you ready to see what I made today?  
Well....one of the things I made today.  
Drumroll, please................

I love the "Sweater Weather" Designer Series Paper.  The colors are just yummy.  They just look like a fall day to me.  This wreath was super easy to make.  It took just six sheets (or 1/2 a pack) of DSP cut into 1/2"x12" strips.  Each strip was curled at both ends with a bone folder.  Each piece is then attached in the middle with a straight pin.  The wreath base is a 10" diameter straw wreath with the plastic left on.  
I can see LOTS of different themed wreaths in my future. (ahem....Disney!)  

So....what projects are you working on or excited to start for Fall?  I love hearing from you and seeing your projects and ideas.  So much so, in fact, when you send me a photo of your latest project from now through October 15th, you will be entered into a drawing for a prize from me.  What are you waiting for?  Get busy and send me a photo.  I can't wait!!

Wishing you a magical week ahead,
