My how time flies. I cannot believe it has been so long since I have updated. Time is a commodity that is truly in short supply lately. Gardening season is done for the year, although I do still have my flower beds to contend with. Do I clear and clean them or let them over winter as is to provide food and shelter for the little ones? Hmm, I'm kind of liking that alternative. Autumn is a beautiful time of year. The colors are beautiful as the season changes.
My Straw Bale Garden out performed again this year giving me more delicious veggies than I could eat. I know I have mentioned it before, but I truly love and enjoy doing the garden in the bales year after year.
I have been travelling a lot more this year than in years past. Although it is an amazing blessing being able to spend so much more time with family down South, it does take a toll on me. As I continue to age, by the grace of God, it takes a toll on me physically more than ever before. My creative time becomes more and more precious.
I made the decision a few months ago to turn part of my creative passion into an official business and open an Etsy Shop. I have been designing, creating and selling Seasonal Wreaths in my local area for several years. I have expanded that Nationwide now selling through Etsy. You can check my Etsy Shop out at https://www.etsy.com/shop/BlueDoorWreathsShop/
I just ran a Pre Black Friday Sale and am gearing up for a larger Black Friday Sale starting Friday November 24th. Pop over and check me out if you are interested in picking up any wreaths for your own home or as gifts for family and friends.
I was not able to attend the Fall Scrapbook Retreats this year as I had hoped I might be able to. My plate is too full and something had to be placed aside. I do keep up with my Digital scrapping with Deanne Gow-Smith from Scrapbookingdom. She has had some gorgeous Digital Kits released lately. She has also branched out into the traditional realm by offering some of her Paper Kits as 12x12 two sided printed papers through Paper Arts If interested you can check them out here. https://paper-arts.co.nz/
