Early Autumn Musings

genia set 1 crop1

Finally, it’s autumn.  The weather is turning slightly cooler – and here in the mid-Atlantic region of the country the leaves will soon be starting their extravaganza of color.  Can’t wait!  I am looking forward to decorating the house for one of my favorite holidays, and of course it mean that this time next week I will be breaking out my special “October” shoes.  Just putting them on makes me feel all magical!halloween decs sepia

I’ve been very busy in the studio during the month of September.  I made a gaggle of zip bags for my upcoming swap for the most amazing Spellbound Art Retreat in November.  spellbound 2 zipbags

I have also had time to complete 2 tutorials for A Gilded Life, fulfilling my Design Team Member commitment for this month. memo watermark 2

I am really thrilled with these two projects, and yes, I am making several more of these cute little hats, using fabrics from my stash, to fill out my fall wardrobe.

I haven’t had a chance to do any real treasure hunting lately, instead focusing on using some of the wonderful things already in my studio.

I was excited to learn this month that 2 of my necklaces were chosen to be published in an upcoming issue of Jewelry Affaire magazine!  So honored and excited, although I miss those necklaces (which are currently enjoying a vacation to California to be photographed for the publication!)I am sure the folks at Jewelry Affaire are taking good care of them for me.

That pretty much brings you up-to-date with my life!  Hope you are all enjoying these early autumn days!
