I've been a busy camper lately.  I'm watching my 3 year old great-nephew while my niece works and even though it makes me tired we have a blast.
He gets to my house at 5am so he takes a nap usually first.  Here he is with my 2 fur kids.

I wanted to let everyone know that I have also been busy making fall decor items and some cocoon sets for infants and I have them listed at my store.  I hope you'll come check them out and while you're there go ahead and look around for Christmas gifts.  That way you might be able to get a jump on your Christmas shopping.    

The other project I have going on is that my sister, Debbie Browdy, has a table at Penned Con so I'm helping with the swag she is going to take.  This is my assistant:

This is a project I've been working on for the last few days.  I bought this table for $10 a while back and finally got around to rehabbing it.  It is the first time I decoupaged fabric on a piece of furniture and there are some goofs but I love it anyway.

I am determined to use craft supplies that I have since I have so much for my projects, so everything I used was on hand.

This is one of those personal post that I've done in the past.  I don't do them very often but this month has been an interesting month for me.  I finally did get my sub floor and then put down the tile in my second craft room which is fantastic.  I moved all the stuff I wanted back into it.  I did de-stash quite a bit and threw out quite a bit.  It is bad when you have so much stuff that you don't know what you have so when you need something you go buy it.

I also at the beginning of the month stopped my anti-depressant.  The great news is for 3 weeks I felt really good, I had energy and wanted to get stuff done.  The bad news is my mood swings are back and I feel I better go back on it.  This is one of those Catch 22's but I am determined to keep up with the forward motion.

On the Lupus front it has been in over drive.  The pain is constant and I feel so bad for my sister because she has Mixed Connective Tissue Disease with all kinds of pain too.  I wish I could take it away for her but at least we each support each other.  I know there are lot of you out there with these diseases and I pray for everyone.  Everybody hang in there.

I've been seeing all kinds of book page wreaths so this is my spin on one.  I painted the white in the middle of the loofah brown for the center.  It is a bit bigger than I really wanted but I cut the round cardboard piece too big and once I discovered it was going to be huge I just kept going.

Just to let you know too.  There is a sale at my shop for 10% off your purchase at my shop through 7/4/17.

This is a wreath I just finished and most of the pieces and parts came from my favorite store....Dollar Tree.

These are lanterns I made from Dollar Tree frames.  I used this tutorial from Mark Montano:  Dollar Store Frame Lanterns

Did you know that during World War II knitting was used for codes.  I saw a post in one of my groups and wanted to check it out more and found several articles.  I think this is amazing.

Here are some of the articles I found:

QI: How knitting was used as code in in WWII

Knitting in code  first article on the left

Historical Craftivism, Knitting and WWII

Those are just a few but they are interesting.
