It's raining today which is okay with me. As of last week I started making my little one a blanket. He couldn't decide on the color so I made it easy on him choosing all colors I had on hand making a simple colorful granny square blanket. He loves it. All I need is 14 more squares plus the edge and I am done. I am really quiet fond of it. Last year I found a really cute chevron lap blanket at the thrift store and he will not put it down for some reason. Actually the oldest one likes to use it too while playing games so I decided to make them each their own. I am so glad they appreciate the things I make them now. I am pretty sure that will change once they are older.
Oh, here is a little present to myself courtesy of Anthropologie.

Woke up early this morning and was able to read quiet a bit (James Rollins' Sandstorm-I like murder, mystery, suspense, military involvement conspiracy books) and browse through the Food Gift magazine from Better Homes and Gardens. Makes me want to go straight to the kitchen and bake. I really want to try making fruit preserves and might give it a try hopefully this week, if time permits as always.
Look at all those baked goods. YUM!!!!
and the packing is so simple and pretty with items we already have in the cupboards. This magazine was a little pricey for me but it was worth it.
Also made me some green tea. I was craving for some. Found the pattern through Lion Brand. Isn't he cute????
Relaxation time is over.

(supplies for my Anthro-inspired DIY)What is it about the cooler weather that brings out our crafting needs into overdrive. Yarns, fabrics, glues, paper, punches, glitter, it all comes out during this time. Is it the shorter days, the chill outside or the holidays. Whatever the reason is I am very motivated at the moment especially with so many lovely blogs and inspirational magazines that have been released lately. I get to use many supplies that have been sitting on my shelf and have an excuse to buy more. I just love this time of coziness and crafty time.

Oops, what can I say. I was thinking about shutting down the blog but I thought I would give it one more try. I have lots to share and have a million pictures to upload but having a blog takes time. I am so loving this beautiful cool weather and sad to see all the beautiful leaves gone. One thing I do love about living on the East coast is able enjoy the seasons change.
It was such an amazing sunset last night and the moon was spectacular.

I wanted to share my very first completed throw blanket that I finished within 3 weeks and the best part I didn't have to buy more yarn, I just used up all the ones that have been left behind from other projects. The instructions were found here and I just love how pretty it looks once done. I am unsure about the doily because it's a little wonky but I guess it's okay. I can't wait to make more to give to love ones.

I just love my jar full of sweet treats. I found a set of the jars with their rack but a little boy that I know broke 2 of them plus the rack so now I am stuck with this one jar. It looks great displaying all the little cupcake toppers I found this weekend in my junk drawers. Makes me want to bake some cupcakes but will have to pass until it cools a bit.
