Count down to September 1st!

The month of August is when I start writing down things that I would like to get family and friends for Christmas. September is when I start keeping my eye out for sales. Plus this month is when the
Holiday Catalog goes live for all my customers, YAHHHH!
10 more days to go, is it to early to sing Christmas songs?
The one thing I miss most about Christmas is the loved ones who do not get to come home for Christmas:( My brother lived in Wyoming and for many years we did not see him for Christmas, until a few years ago he moved back home. He was missing all of us and now our Christmas's together are like they should be.
This next video is the Hearts Come Home Bundle. The title is just right.

Thanks for stopping  by!

Fall will soon be here and then Halloween. I love seeing all the kids dressed up especially the wee little ones. They are just adorable!! I love it when they say Trick or Treat and get excited when they get their candy. Spooky and scary is really not my style but I love this gate from the new Halloween set . I can see it being used for more than just Halloween. What ideas do you have for this gate? Leave me a comment and let me know what you will create with it.

Craft Show Apron

I am getting things ready for a craft fair this fall and I needed an apron that would hold my essentials. I decided the best place to look is pinterest. There was so many to choose from. I found one that I felt would fit my needs. I chose this one from Crafty Staci. I liked that it had many pockets. One pocket is for your cell phone, one for you pen and pad and even a business card pocket. The zippered pocket is for your cash and the other pockets for what ever else you may need. It even has a holder for your keys. She has a free pattern and if you are not a person who likes to sew she even sells them.
My next item was what fabric to use. Since I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I did a search if they had ever had fabric. I found that they did!!
I chose Spice Cake. Brown tones are my favorite and I love how these went together.
Here is my finished apron. It had been awhile since I last sewed but thought it turned out nicely.
unfortunately these are retired and I found them on Ebay mine is made with the spice cake.
Here is a list of the fabric I have found.
Spice Cake
Beau Chateau
 Comfort Café

 Floral District
Summer Smooches
Timeless Portrait
Springtime Vintage
Sweet Stitches
Candlelight Christmas

Candy Cane

Deck the Halls

After watching this I want to get more fabric and make some cards! how about you?

Thanks for stopping by!!

TGIF Challenges #TGIF119 Color Combo Challenge

This was definitely a fun one! What to create with these colors. It seemed like everyone was doing flowers so I decided on something different. Since I have been making quite a few cards using the Coffee Café from Stampin' Up! I figured I might as well try it. I hope you like the card.
Thanks for stopping by!
