August & Autumn...

I can't believe it is August already! Can someone please tell me where this year is going?

No wonder I have been creating items in Fall colors.

I am ready for Fall and cooler weather.  How about you?

These gorgeous snap hair clips are the newest addition to my Etsy shop.  The colors are so rich... you can't help but think of Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and cool nights.

How about these lovelies just in time for Halloween?

Bats, Bats, Bats and more Bats!

If you look carefully you can see their green eyes looking at you.  :)

I don't know about you, but I just love, love, love Halloween.  Hmmmm... pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.

Now I have done it, I went and made myself hungry!  OK, I will be happy with a homemade pumpkin pie.  :)

How about these lovelies in caramel brown, black & white.  These remind me of Caramel Apples.  YUM!

So what does the Autumn season make you think about?

ArtFire Collection... Hello Books

In honor of school starting soon and my new position as an elementary school Librarian I created an ArtFire Collection this week.  I am proud to say that it was featured in the ArtFire Daily Email Collection.  I hope you enjoy!

Back to School...

School is in Session!

I can't believe that it has been "eight" months since I last wrote on my blog.  Shame on me!  The last time I visited here, I was just returning back to teaching after a year and a half.  Where did that school year go?!?

Last year was a blur to say the least!

Finished the school year as a Read Intervention teacher which was one of the most awesome experiences I have ever had.  Working with children from 1st grade - 6th grade who were a year or more behind their reading grade level was both rewarding and fun.  The children I worked with came from all walks of life, but unfortunately most of them live in very poor conditions.  But oh how they appreciated every day eager to learn.  My days were filled with hugs after hugs.

I am returning this school year to a new position as an elementary school Librarian & new school within the same school district.  I am so excited about the new school year and new challenges.

During the time I have been gone from my blog, I have managed to keep up with my Etsy shop.  If you haven't visited for awhile, you will be pleasantly surprised.  Lots and lots of colorful & fun snap hair clips have been added.  

Cross my heart, I promise not to neglect my blog again!  I have missed blogging and all of you.

Until then... take care and have an awesome remainder to the summer!
