Preparing for fall....

Today kinda feels a little fall like and I am soooo glad for a couple of reasons. One it's my very favorite time of the year, love the colors, the temps, the foods and even like the clothes for this season the best! And the other is that I am going to be in a craft show in just a little over a week and I have been crafting nothing but fall stuff and so I am glad that it's beginning to feel like fall although chances are here in Texas it will be in the 90's within a couple of days, just sayin...
So I want to teeeaasssee you with a few things that I have made for my craft show.

Preparing for fall...

Today kinda feels a little fall like and I am soooo glad for a couple of reasons. One, it's my very favorite time of the year, love the colors, the temps, the foods and even like the clothes for this season the best! And secondly...  I am going to be in a craft show in just a little over a week and I have been crafting nothing but fall stuff, and so I am glad that it's beginning to feel like fall although chances are here in Texas it will be in the 90's within a couple of days, just sayin...
So I want to teeeaasssee you with a few things that I have made for my craft show.
I was inspired by a few blogs out there.
 
These pumpkins I found on a blog I have followed for a while called Tattered & Timeless. Tammy is such a sweetheart and has began selling at a booth in her area.  I have made several pumpkins in all shapes, colors and sizes.

And then I stumbled upon a new blog called Today Is My Someday and I was inspired by a fall wreath she just made. I used different fabrics than hers, most of mine are made out of old clothing, coats and upholstery fabric but I really liked the look of her wreath with the burlap at the top so I incorporated it into my wreath.
 I love these flowers, parts of them are from leather and suede coats.
These flowers are made from burlap, felt and upholstery fabrics and a bit of yarn and ribbon too!
Love these colors! I'm excited but nervous, I should have started working on this months ago. Not sure what I was thinking trying to pull it together in just a month. This is the first craft show I have done in years! I am hoping to get a booth at a local shop once this is done.
So I have all lots more for sell, but if you want to see it you'll need to come to the craft show!

Ready set go!

You may have noticed that I haven't been on here much lately. Lots of changes in my life! I quit my job, yep I did. I have another one but it will be less hours and less responsibility. It's a good thing. But what's really good is that I have decided to jump in the ring and try to make a go of a business. I have wanted to do this for YEARS people, YEARS! But I had 4 children and have always worked outside of the home at least a little and just never found the time. Well, now the last of my 4 babies is the only one home and so I have so much time on my hands that they are begging me to do something so.... here it goes! I decided at the last minute to sign up for this really great fall craft show so I have been really busy this weekend. I have 27 more days to get ready!!! Here is one of the things I've put together, what do you think?
I'm loving it, the hard part about this is not keeping this stuff for myself! I'll show some more pics of what is in the works soon.
