C's of fall...Crafting, Cuddling, Cards, Creating, Chillin, Connecting and the Champ...

I know for most of you fall means football, well for me it means knitting, scrapbooking, cardmaking and CHILLIN...I'm stirring my creative juices RIGHT NOW and getting ready to hibernate for the winter with lots of new yarn, new 12x12 papers, stickers and embellishments and plenty of handmade projects on my plate.
Crafting: I used to own a scrapbook store and I LOVED IT...2100 sq. ft of pure bliss!!
I used to crank out the pages and I've been published over 22 times, a scrapbookers dream..and it was my passion for so many years and I've neglected it...

Here's one (or two) I completed a few years back for a magazine:

Sadly I haven't submitted anything since 2005...DRAT! so I'm diggin out my boxes and getting back into it...first up a wedding reception album for my aunt! YAY ME!!

Creating: I like to also create a lot of handmade things for the HOME (wooden letters, ornaments out of cd's, etc), here's are a few examples...

Cardmaking: I make a lot of cards and tin holders for cards..Check it!

Crafting Needles: I buy new needles every year..but i can only make scarves!!! this is my favorite yarn to use...called fancy fur..

Cuddling..what better time than the fall/winter months to intimate with your loved ones??..the Champ and I are planning a lot of quality time for quality connecting with each other..YEAH RIGHT...I forgot I have to make appointments between his football games for a few kisses!!!
in this concrete jungle..where do you stand??

Gee - You are a true artist when it comes to scrapbooking. Everything that you've done for me has been great. Things I will always treasure.

Love is a beautiful thang.

I have to get you to help me make a great scrap book one day! You have incredible talent! My problem with creating scrap books is that I seem to have trouble deciding where to start and what to do first. I am a huge fan of Muhammad Ali (he is my role model!), and I have collected a few things that could go into a scrap book, but keep putting it off because I haven't come up with an idea for the scrap book. Hopefully, it will come to me soon and I am sure to get inspiration here!

Do the darn the thing, Gee Double!

Now, all we need now is the book to get done, and it's a wrap. :)

Take Care!

Written In March

The cock is crowing,

The stream is flowing,

The small birds twitter,

The lake doth glitter,

The green fields sleep in the sun;

The oldest and youngest

Are at work with the strongest;

The cattle are grazing,

Their heads never raising;

There are forty feeding like one!

Like an army defeated

The snow hath retreated,

And now doth fare ill

On the top of the bare hill;

The ploughboy is whooping--anon--anon

There's joy in the mountains;

There's life in the fountains,

Small clouds are sailing,

Blue sky prevailing,

The rain is over and gone.

You know all them Geminis in you got so much to give! Talent, love, advice, cuddling, alladat! I'm glad on on your good side. And bad side for that. Like they say (whoever the hell they is) it's BEST to know a loved one through ALL seasons. Make me something pretty!
