Time to get back to Blogging

It's time to mop up and dust around here. I know it's soon to be Halloween, but the cobwebs need to be swept away. The ol' Blog has been left neglected for far too long.....shoved aside to make time for other responsibilities. I am in hopes that I'll be able to find a few minutes now and again to post here and get back on a schedule that isn't as hectic as it has been for the last few months. Sometimes we just forget to slow down and it takes a tole on our 'me' times. It's been a long hot Summer and I am ready for the cool temperatures that come with the changing colors of the leaves in Fall.

Now that it's officially Autumn, I want to get back to my crafting. I miss stitching and sewing and my crochet, but when the weather is so warm, these crafts go on the shelf. My painting has all but ground to a halt also. Except for a couple of small challenge pieces nothing has been done. It has been a long hot summer of constant road trips, reports to write and tons of learning. Now that I have some ideas of how to manage my new responsibilities, I hope things will settle down and I can get back into my much loved (and missed) crafting.

First on the agenda is my Paint Bucket Halloween Challenge! Yesterday I scanned thru many old patterns for ideas and I think I found a couple that are promising. I will start prepping my surface today. These challenges are really fun and when all the members unveil their creations it is exciting. We all have such varied styles and imaginations. I can't wait to see what everyone else does for this challenge. Film at eleven.........
