A little rambling

August is rapidly coming to an end with autumn less then a month away,  the schools here have been back in session for a full week and the weather here has been hot, humid and rainy.  Florida in August is not in my opinion a comfortable month, stepping out the door first thing in the morning one is hit in the face with oppressive humidity and 30 seconds later your clothes are damp, your hair is limp and you feel as if your stepped out of the shower with your clothes on.

Last week I was out running errands, dropping packages at the post office and doing a bit of shopping and picked up a few crafty magazines to get holiday projects underway this has some lovely Autumn

ideas as well a Halloween, though I'm not much of a painter, I would love to try my hand at repainting a teapot.
The red and white cover just pulled me in, the pages are filled with all manner of crafts though the cover appears to be more winter/Christmas ideas there are other holidays among the pages.

I was under the weather over the weekend and still not up to par so I spent most of Saturday writing much needed replies to letters which I mailed out this morning.  I also had some time to catch up on my reading the first was the Tea Time magazine with the autumn inspired cover
Last week I spent a little time sorting through some of my beads and jewelry making supplies, I made a short list of what findings I need to get a few beaded pieces started, on Saturday the mail carrier left this catalog in my mailbox
I love turning the pages of Fire Mountain but this catalog left me disappointed I'm not sure if the company is no longer carrying all the products they used to offer or if you have to search the online site.  I will say one thing it should be renamed the Swarovski catalog, to me more then half the catalog is just crystal beads. Don't get me wrong I love Swarovski crystals but I also love semi precious stone and this catalog at one time had pages upon pages of them not to mention thousand of charms. Sigh!

Some of the seasonal fabrics I will be crafting with in the weeks to come:
Witch Cameo
Sheer Witch
Glitter Witch
If you didn't know this about me I collect Witches so these fabrics really caught my eye, the cameo witch fabric I plan to make some fussy cuts for several ideas I have in my head, I may fussy cut some of the glittery witch fabric too. The sheer witch fabric is shown on a white cloth so the witches stand out in the photo.
Well that's about all I have time for I'm heading to the pool for a swim.

  3. I love the fabric, have fun creating with it. Have a good Labor Day weekend. Hope it cools down enough for you to enjoy some outdoor time. I see you are a fellow magazine junkie too. That is my weakness, paper edition.
