Ah, Fall is Here....Problem...What Problem?

It's the first day of fall, and I'm pulling out the decorations.  This ceremonious day marks the start of a three month whirlwind of decorating!  That makes my heart sing!

I thought I'd give you a peek at what's on the craft table-


So......does anyone see a problem here????  There seems to be a few things that need finishing...it appears I have the Nightmare Before Christmas taking shape on my table!
Maybe Santa could send me a few elves...

May God's Grace and Mercy shine throughout your week!

My Little Buddy

Stranger things have happened....well, maybe not....  I have a new buddy.  We've been hanging out together in my laundry room.  I do most of the talking.  He's a quiet sort.  I'm not really sure how we even struck up a friendship, but he meets and greets me any time I come in. Tonight he was waiting on top of the washer for our nightly chat....


We chitchat a little each day.  We shake hands, and I leave him to guard the laundry.  


I hope our paths cross another day, little buddy.  God sure put some thought into you, and I'm glad we've gotten to share some time together.

Fall is in the Air...or At Least on My Mind

With the coming of Labor Day and the beginning of school, comes my desire to break out the fall decorations.  I know it's too early, but I'm ready!




I found new bowls at WallyWorld this week, and the Pumpkin Spice wax cubes are on the shelves- and now in my warmers!  Count down to The fall equinox begins!

Happy Labor Day!

Good Morning Folks!
Happy Labor Day to everyone!  I thought I would share a little peek into the Cabin this morning, since I have the day off.  I've already been out chasing bugs.  This little fella was peering in at me as I sat on the couch drinking coffee and reading my Bible.

 
One of these days I'm going to figure out how to take really good macro photos....don't hold your breath, though...it might be awhile.
School has started, and we made it through the first week -wooo!  God has blessed my classroom, so I know it will be a fantastic year.  As I mentioned in my last post, I have also started riding Cimarron and Jake....aaaand, I ate a little dirt twice this past week.  That ground certainly has gotten harder since last I remember. 
 
So, what is going on with my art?  I am working on my first BJD-ball-jointed doll, and I am fairly certain I have figured out why I don't make them.  So far, I've only sculpted the head, and I am really not very happy with it.  I like wrinkles!  I love the folds and textures of my Santa faces and the old hags I've made.  I don't do smooth very well. 
 
 
 
I am going to try to get the torso sculpted today, so keep your fingers crossed!  I am always looking to improve my art and to try new techniques.  At least I can check this one off the bucket list! 
 
 
Enjoy the day and soak up God's sunshine!  He was up early sprinkling blessings out like candy sprinkles this morning, so be sure to take time to look around for them today!
