Christmas cards. Those cute little paper things you send out to friends and family every Christmas. You include a picture. Sometimes a amily picutre. Most time just the kids – cause it’s just easier than trying to get a whole family photo. I used to plan weeks in advance what I was going to do for my Christmas cards. Something fun and crafty and cute. And the pics of my kids were always well planned out in advance, coordinating outfits, cute props, photo shoot scheduled early, pics ordered and delivered in time to mail the cards the first of December.
Woo-Hoo! Sew a Fine Seam has a new look!
A logo, new background for the blog, new biz cards – it’s so exciting! I am in love with my logo!
Milk Paint, Tomatoes, and Tea Parties. It’s just a few of the things we’ve had going on around here in the past few days (the days I’ve been pretending I don’t have a blog to update). Along with the milk paint, tomatoes (which we’ve just been eating a lot of, not canning or anything so ambitious) and tea parties (which was attended by several dollys, a teddy bear, and my two daughters) we have had a flea market, a garage sale, pillows, school work, laundry, voice lessons, a ‘field trip’, and a myriad of life in general – all with Dad gone for 3 weeks.
Summer is ending and it’s time to say Good-bye.
This week I felt fall in the air and saw it in the sky. Yes the weather is still hot and muggy but there is a slight change in the air that says Autumn has arrived. it’s subtle this change – a shift in air movement, the tinge of harvest smell, the color of leaves just beginning to pale and change if you look very closely. The sky’s color and mood change ever so slightly. School is in session. Summer has come to a close.
Stained Glass Masquerade. We dress up. We smile. We say we are ‘fine’. We make small talk. We make no mention of the pain inside. No hint of the feelings for failure. We have the perfect life after all. We live in America. We have all the food and clothes we want at our fingertips. We live in nice homes that are heated and cooled to our liking. Why should we ever have a bad day or anything going wrong?
