It’s September! I can’t believe it. It feels like the beginning of a new season. Wonderful.
I’ve been working on making choices for new curtains and decor and in doing so I have collected quite a few stacks of pretty fabric….
I think I am falling in love. I’ve finally picked out the curtain patterns and now I am feeling very inspired to try some new stitching projects…. I have a feeling that my sketchbook will be very very full by the time I have finished moving in a few weeks. Always a good feeling!
Another weekend project I’ve been working on is remixing (I like to make my own colors) my paint and putting it in these Wilton (yes… for cake decorating) bottles. I really wanted to have a simple & colorful display of paint in my new studio and I am so excited about this solution! They are super inexpensive and the perfect size…
On an entirely different note, for the past two days I have been thinking about Christmas *CONSTANTLY*. Memories and plans and ideas… I think the fall and Christmas seasons are so wonderful. I am looking forward to them this year especially. Jeremy said I should channel all this happy energy into designing some new holiday cards. Sounds like fun. I like the way he thinks! 🙂
Oh. my. goodness…. This is super exciting! The lovely Ashley G. was kind enough to do a commissioned portrait of Mr. Larson and I (we are both fans of her work!). She normally doesn’t take commissions so I am so thankful that she took the time to do this for us. We love it! Can’t wait to hang it in my new home…. Thank you, Ashley. You are a gem!!!!
Well, I am all out of stories to tell this evening. If you are still in the mood for more, check out this new interview that I did for the Red Velvet Art blog. That kid is one of the most talented boys I know. He’s super cool!
Happy Monday and welcome to the beginning of the greatest season ever! elsie
