It seems that fall is the season where I create the fewest cards. Well, I guess I mean that I don't create a lot of fall cards. I am busy with Christmas cards and presents! Usually around Thanksgiving, I manage to get a few cards out! Also, our fall goes by so fast!

Those notebooks are just beautiful. Unfortunately I won't be crafting with anything new this Fall because, for the first and now only time, I ordered well over $100 worth of supplies from one website and the PO says they delivered the items. Apparently they put the package by my front door & I live in a busy location so someone helped themselves to my purchases. (Beware: PO insurance is worthless in this case because their records indicate the package was delivered & they are not responsible for criminal activity) It's very sad & upsetting when things like this happen.

Alexandra trigili:

So sad that your stuff was stolen. It's a huge problem in our area...especially during the holiday season. People follow delivery trucks and grab packages just after they're delivered. Have you checked with your neighbors to see if any of them have surveillance cameras that might have caught them doing it? I think the post office and companies like Fed Ex ought to be doing more to prevent this since it's become so prevalent. Hope you win this weeks blog prize...and may your stash be ever overflowing!

Yulia Mulyukina:

Thanks Aneta and Magda for sharing the videos! So simple, yet inspiring! I've heard that Nature Sketchbook collection will not be produced anymore. Is it true? It's such a beautiful collection, I adore nature prints!

Joan Currie:
09/19/2017, 03:40:53 AM

Love it!Love it!Love it! Which one you ask? Well must I choose? At every opportunity I try to get At least a few loose page's to make some dreamy tags or add to my PL journal's but it's almost crime to have to cut graphic 45 paper.... Oh don't get me wrong it sits on my table for days whilst I dream of ideas to do with the gorgeous pages and how to cut them to benefit from them without throwing one small piece away...but then if I just frame them on there own! Well I've still used them and it's pleasing to the eye...everyday
