Well, November is always a busy month for me. I am getting ready for a craft boutique at my home. I am teaching some crafting mini classes. I am going on a friend retreat where I can. You guessed it, CRAFT! And of course it is Thanksgiving, when I will get to see loved ones. I love the autumn. Our trees are just starting to get beautiful color as I live in the desert. The mornings and evenings are brisk and the afternoons are perfect and this is what I did today. . . I put up pomegranate jelly. I got about 20 jars done but it's just the beginning. I ran out if sugar and pectin.
I will be sharing some of my crafts that I have been doing soon. So hope you will come back to see what I am up to. Happy November!!!!!!
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
