Happy Fall Y'all!!!

Happy 1st day of Fall!!!! We had an early morning soccer game, but now we're home and I have no plans of leaving the house again today, so i can get some things done today...Yesterday i mopped the whole house and did some Fall cleaning...I was getting so much done, but had to stop and get ready to head over and get papers signed to refinance the house...We knocked off 12 yrs...So, if we stay in this house it will be paid off in 15 yrs..

So needless to say after that and picking up Luke from school I just couldn't get back into my cleaning mood...So, my totes of autumn decorating just sat...But, I'm home and ready to get at it! It's suppose to be 90 today, so  great day to work inside...

I hope you all have a wonderful Fall day even if the temps are still summer like..:)

Until next time!!!! Happy Fall y'all!!!!

Fun! Let me know if you are interested in anything!

It's a busy day here today...We're getting ready for our monthly update on Primitive Handmades Mercantile in the morning and I hope to get a few things on my selling blog also maybe this evening....Lots to do as soon as Luke gets out of school...Homework and getting him dressed for soccer pictures being taken tonight....Yes, homework for kindergarteners...It starts as soon as he gets in the car..."No homework tonight"..."Yes, Luke, you have homework tonight"....And it continues all the way

Hope to be back later...:)

What a busy morning it has been here....Yes, Mondays are that way, but I love them so....It allows us to begin another week and plan out all the things that need to be done...So, I've been busy working in the house along with laundry, mopping,etc...

I also sat down and wrote about myself...Not one of my favorite things to do...I mean, where do you I had been delaying getting back to Jennifer  when she emailed me last week....She had asked for Christmas pics of my home back in the spring or summer of 2011 and after last Christmas I sent her a bunch...Her Fall issue sold out and I was lucky enough to get one, so now she and her staff are preparing for the Christmas issue...I don't know who all is going to be in it, but it will be wonderful and a must have....So, go on over and check her site out...

I want to thank everyone that messaged me and left messages with words of encouragement for our family heartache....It means to the world to me!!!

No Fall decorating here yet!! I haven't event gotten any totes out yet...(The pic above is from several years ago) I've been waiting for the feeling...Ya know, the Fall feeling...We have had some mornings with cooler temps for a few hrs then the temps go back up in the 80's and 90's....And even a few days the temps haven't been as bad as they could have been in the south....I've been watching for the signs...One sign is Fall produce at Walmart...Last Thursday I saw it for the first time....Indian corn, gourds, mini pumpkins,etc.....I even saw some candy corn....Now, lets face it if I wait for the Fall temps I might be waiting til November....But I'm still not ready....I might get a tote out and look through it....But in the south it still isn't Fall yet for me.....

DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!!! As of this morning my scales said i have officially lost 46 pounds...So, yes! I did the happy dance at 6 am this morning... :)

I'm also working on some new offerings and hope to have some on my selling blog before the week is out...I will let you know ahead of time...

Well, I'm off to get some more things done....I hope you all are having a wonderful Monday!! Every new day is a gift from God!

Hugs, Jen

 Hi friends! Life has definitely gotten in the way since I last posted....Some good and some not so good...But I wanted to pop in and share with you my new "Early Simple Christmas" 2012 sampler I just finished this morning...I will be starting on the pattern in the morning after I drop Luke off at school...I haven't decided if I will leave as is or sew into a long  pinkeep/bowl filler/pillow....This fabric piece measures 10" x 15"...So, this sampler is a really good size..

I've missed you all and will be back soon!

hugs, Jen
