I am slogging through the day so I'll just be short & sweet and leave the elaborating for a more energetic day. I've finished designing the Christmas dream bubble embroidery series so I'm hoping that and the monkey pattern will be up in the shop as early as next week. Ok, I need to find that half-drunk cup of coffee from this morning and drink the other half!
Phoebe is very reluctant to talk to us. She seems to find it much more effective to communicate through funny faces and tumbling off furniture. She has however mastered 4 very important words: mama, dedede, ah-er (oscar) and dah-eeee (dolly).
I know I seem like a holiday jumper with my already-on-to-christmas crafts but be assured things are fall festive/halloweeny around here. We've got our bats up and our plastic pumpkins out and even our ironed between waxed paper leaves up in the window.
Here's my favorite new Halloween decor item, my new witch doll by Mimi Kirchner that is taking a break from her spot on my cherished items shelf to come out here and help me hand out candy.
And speaking of seasonally appropriate, I even baked us an apple pie! I finally figured out the apple peeler/corer/slicer that my mom got me for Christmas *and* finally remembered to pick up pre-made pie crusts and voila, a pie!! It wasn't all that good but I'm encouraged. Maybe I'll try a crumble next. I love a crumble.
