Toil and Trouble

Finally...September. My house starts to bubble over with creativity this time of year. Autumn is my favorite time of year and it shows all over the house, porch and craft room. There are bits and bobs of spooky beginning to pop up!  

My new favorite decoration is this masterpiece by my 6 year old. Cutest witch ever! And take a look at the ghost. My children's art makes this mommy heart swell!

Mommy monster is getting crafty, too! A Muse Studio's new Halloween set - Toil and Trouble - is providing me with plenty of inspiration. So perfectly wicked!

This next card is all A Muse as well. Their Seattle color cardstock is a new favorite. The perfect grey!

New Crafty Space

A new crafty space to inspire and facilitate many new crafty projects. I am so excited to dive deeper into my crafts this summer. On my mind are paper crafts, knitting projects, weekends of sewing, felt projects, etc. Can't wait to share them!

I have been away for quite awhile, friends, due to a few injuries in my family (my love broke his leg not long after I began to heal from my torn ACL!), but the wheels of creativity are starting to turn as we heal. Brewing up some magic...stay tuned...

Slow November

Hello! It's been too long. I had every intention of stopping in as much as possible in November, but I had a little accident and now these are my new best friends...
Yes, crutches. Boo. You will not believe what happened. I tore my ACL yet again the night of my Halloween Party. I blame the fabulous witch boots I was wearing. I fell and I fell HARD. Can you believe that? Oh my, this is not very fun at all. Crafting and being artsy is so very hard when you need both hands to help you walk. So, we are having a very slow November. We are pausing to take an in breath and be quiet (as quiet as a house with four kidlets can be). We are finding small moments to create, though...

The whole family sat around the dinner table last night and did some very important creating. It felt so good to doodle, watercolor, draw and watch the children's hands busy with clay. I acquired so many new bits and pieces of artwork, bookmarks and cards.

I adore the candle in the middle-so peaceful. I love all of them, of course! I had fun, too!

I really love this colorful piece by my 5 year old. He always makes these amazing little paintings. He is a very colorful little soul.

We are also reading so many great books for this time of year. Have you read this book? It is one of our favorites! I love a good children's book that also has a recipe! Yum!

I do love November. I feel like I am missing out a little bit, but reading seasonal books to the children helps me capture the spirit of this season.

I am keeping myself busy with my laptop and many, many books. I am making notes and getting inspired for when I do feel better. Soon, I hope. I have so many big plans!

Here is another great children's book with a recipe. The Apple Cake is lovely. Wynstones' Autumn book is filled with poems, songs and stories.

 Well friends, I need to get back to resting my knee and making big plans for the season of giving.

I do hope your November is lovely so far. I will be back very soon.

Halloween Tea Party

Frosted Petunias Tea Party Under A Halloween Moon
Stop by Frosted Petunias for Halloween Tea Party delights!

Hello lovely witches! Please come in and sit right down for a spot of tea! Today is the Halloween Tea Party and I have set up a lovely little table for you to join me.

Now sit right here...

Can I offer you a cuppa spiced apple tea to delight the taste buds?

A touch of magic...

Broom parking...
A little extra something special this evening. A Moonlight a warm and slightly woozy feeling. A wee cup is all you need to do the trick...
Sip some...I dare you...

Take a sugary delight made by my goblins. I also made caramel apples, but my wee goblins ate them ALL! How sneaky! Stop by tomorrow and I shall make you something far better!
 Kick up your feet and stay awhile. Sip your tea while we chat. Are you feeling the joyful and fuzzy dizzy feeling of my Moonlight Mixer?
I mixed up some loose incense for this special and spooky Halloween High Tea. Patchouli leaves, White Sage, Mullein leaves and red sandalwood offer the perfect aroma and blessing for Hallow's Eve.
A dab of essential oil right on the candle wax to add to the scents of the season...
 Thank you for coming to my Tea Party. I've been blessed to have you.
