I Love This Time of Year!

     I haven't posted much lately.  I haven't felt well and me and my amazing doctor are trying to get me better.  Mother Nature can be quite cruel to women at times.  But, I'll take the bad with the good.  I enjoyed all three pregnancies and I think my kids are my best accomplishments so bring it on Mother Nature!  (Although at times I have another word for her!)

     While I have been at home a good bit here lately, I have worked on a couple of things.  I love this time of year!  I am embarrassed to say I have a room full of Halloween decorations.  I think I always loved fall because I was the odd child that loved it when school started back.  When I was younger, though, we started school a lot closer to Fall than kids in the south do now.  We had Halloween, and then I knew soon after would be Thanksgiving and Christmas.  After Christmas I am done with winter and it has only begun.  We take down the decorations and I am ready for Spring Break! 

     In the spirit of Halloween approaching and me being sick and tired of being sick and tired I made these wooden bangle bracelets and I just listed them on my Etsy shop.  I am beginning to clean out my listings and add fall items so I started with these!  Most people don't get it, but working on these things is a real stress release for me.  I get into my own little creative world and it is like comfort food to me!

     They are all free handed painted on a plain wooden bangle so they are truly an original!













I also made these with my boys' school logo and mascot for a little Fall Football team spirit!  The logos and wolves aren't free handed on these.
