Fall is in the air!

It's coming - Fall is coming! The nights are cold, the mornings are brisk and cool and the days are warm but not too warm. Why wouldn't anyone love fall?

Danielle and I have been crafting daily to get ready for the Uncle John's Cider Mill Arts and Crafts show this weekend. We will be setting up for the two-day event on Friday evening. I get so excited before a show. It makes me so happy - I wish I could craft full-time.

I have been stitching felted pumpkins, halloween cookies in the shapes of candy corn and pumpkins, and crafting make-dos for fall and Halloween. The little expressions on each pumpkin makes me smile. I've even been caught cooing to a pumpkin or skeleton while at a show! All of our creations were made with love and the expressions on their faces make us smile. We giggle all through the show.

Last year a hurricane was hitting Florida during the Uncle John's show and the rains and winds were felt all the way up here in Michigan. It was a soggy, rainy and windy show. Very few people ventured out on Saturday and even fewer on Sunday. The die-hard followers showed up and even purchased our witches boots, doornies and candle mats. On Sunday, even in the rain, Danielle and I giggled and took the "slow" time to reinvent our booth. It is because of that show that we set up our booth the way we do.

So if you're up near St. Johns, Michigan this weekend, September 19 and 20, stop by and see Danielle and I in our Fabric Confections booth!

Until next time,
