Getting back in the loop after vacation has not been easy. Can't the summer last a little longer? The weather has been in the 70's the past few weeks... just perfect!
FYI, one of my husband's dream has come true- we have a hot tub! We found a reconditioned one and have just the perfect spot for it. He has been busy getting the chemicals right, testing pH balance, regulating heat and jets, etc. Last weekend he built a little mini deck so we can get in and out without using a step ladder. I was impressed with how fast he put it together. Lucky we live right down the street from Home Depot- it was a three trip project :-)I was grocery shopping the other night and had to check out the Fall issue of Crafts 'N Things. The page opened to a set of fall projects created by designer friend Melony Bradley. What a fun surprise to see her project made using my Sizzix Caddy die! Wouldn't this be a cute teacher's gift or a nice way to customize a birthday present? Melony always designs with recycled materials and I love that about her work. That brown paper flower is probably made with packing paper... just a guess.
