Meet Frankie

I have made some Frankensteins using Frog's to Fairy Dust pattern. I think he turned out pretty cute! Now I have to finish some Annies. They are naked! I have been a candlemaking roll so there really hasn't been much time for anything else.

Swap Goodies

I have gotten some wonderful swap goodies the past week. This first one is from The Pickled Pepper Patch's Harvest Swap. My partner was Cindy. She sent some tarts that smell so good. She also made the scarecrow and pumpkin. She sent a fantastic package.

The next fall swap was from the Primitive Swapping Room's Fall Swap. My partner was Jan. She sent some wonderful goodies. She is so talented. She did a terrific job painting the jar, candle, and box. I can't wait to get into the candy!

The last swap was a fat quarter swap from Parallel Botany. My partner was Kerry. She sent some very pretty fabrics!

Where has time gone?

It seems like the days are flying by. I have been planning on doing a fall festival since March and now it is a month away. I have so much to do! I am going to pick up my candle wax next week. Thank goodness I found a place four hours away in North Carolina to get the wax. That saves alot on shipping. I have been busy making air fresheners, sink fresh, and potpourri. I have alot of Annie patterns cut out that need to be stuffed. I am going to do my lotions tonight. The kids started school this week so that keeps half of them occupied during the day. My oldest son is trying to decide what he is going to do with his life. I hope he figures it out soon. Hubby is retiring so he is always home. And of course, my daughter and baby. I miss the peaceful days!
