Fall is in the air!

I remember when I was a kid...it seemed that as soon as school started the weather started cooling off. It hasn't been that way for a long time now! Maybe it is because I live in Florida. I don't know. It has been getting nicer here for a few weeks, but we finally have weather that lets you leave the windows open at night and snuggle up in a quilt. I am loving it! Of course, nothing good comes without a price. You guessed it. The kids are sniffling. My kids don't ever get really "sick" but they do get sniffles now and then. Ben is home today, and has been all week. Funny, I got a call from his teacher yesterday asking if he was okay and if he just stayed home to snuggle. I told her that was about it. He doesn't have a fever or anything, just wants mommy time. Sometimes that is hard to get around here.

As some of you know, I have my hands in many things these days. One of the things I have been playing with is vinyl art. I actually purchased a (quite expensive) vinyl cutter. The kind they use to put words on the side of cars. I mostly use mine to make home decor. We are having a craft day at church this Saturday and this is the craft I am doing. If you would like to order one, I am asking $25 plus shipping if you are out of the area. Or, if you are in the area and want to come Saturday and make it, you can do that for $22. Or, if you just want the vinyl and can get the rest yourself, I am charging $14. The board measures 24 inches long. The pictures are just clipped to the mini clipboard so you can swap them out of you want to update your pictures or if a child gets disowned or something. LOL
I got a brand new stamp set on Monday from the Orlando regional promotion. It isn't even in the catalog yet! Kim is on her way over and we are going to play! I'll share later. :o)

I want to make one! I have been looking ALL over for one and I wanted to make one, but couldn't think of exactly how I wanted it to look! Can you let me know exactly how you made it? Thanks!

Hello Beckie! I have enjoyed reading your blog! You are very crafty! I got a message from Julie that you would like to order 2 oatmeal, milk, & Honey bath bombs. If you could send me your information to my email account, I will figure postage for and send you a pay pal invoice. Thanks so much for the business!
