Here in south Texas when the first of October rolls around, we begin to have hope that our 90 degree days might possibly be done. Granted that is wishful thinking some years, but it's where my mind goes anyway!
Fall has always been one of my favorite seasons. The air gets crisp and it seems the sky gets more blue. Apple season is in full swing, and when my kids were in school, it meant marching band competitions in Missouri apple country. We would always stop on our way home and get some lovely, juicy and BIG apples. I miss that. I would also think about planting bulbs at this time when I lived up north. Down here....nope. Spring blooming bulbs are a waste of time as the ground never gets cold enough for them to do their thing. Sad, sad, sad.
Here on this first day of October, it's the time of week that many of us hop about the blogosphere having a peek at creative desks around the world. It's all courtesy of the lovely Julia at Stamping Ground. Make sure you pop over there and check it out. It's heaps of fun!
Here is the state of my craft desk this morning. Rather embarrassing. I've been working on something "new to me" and learning how to cut and apply vinyl using my Silhouette.
These are the fruits of my labor so far. I'm hoping they will sell at the craft festivals I have booked for October, November and December. If they do well at the first show, I'll go buy more ornaments to glitter up! I also have a six pack of the flat round ones (sort of "M&M" shaped). I think I'll like working with those better as it's a flatter surface and hopefully the vinyl will adhere easier.
I tried to think of "generic" images and words to use, as I didn't want to just show up with personalized ornaments and take orders. Hopefully, folks will just be enamoured with these and snap them up! Fingers crossed!
So what's on your work desk today? Leave me a comment and let me know what you're up to!
Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Crafting!
