Well we finally got our Blusterous day ....I have been waiting for what seems like forever. Usually I hope there is no wind and the beautiful yellow , orange and bit of green leaves stay on the trees forever. BUT this year was different. It seems like it took them forever to change and then to fall off the trees...We would clean up the grass and it would stay clean for days ..yes usally in the fall the leaves fall everyday . We even had 3 inches of snow ....rained all day at one point and yes the leaves are still on the trees. In my opion fall was ruined.., the pretty orange leaves are now all dry and shriveld and still on the trees!!!!!! but the day finally came Saturday windy windy windy..and all at once they are on the ground ...hehe  yup all of them..and now Halloween with look as it usually does..(like winter ) lol..anyway Here is my card that I made for Crazy 4 Challenges this week.

Starting for Christmas

Just a little update she loved the ring :) we are going to go to the store today and get the ring sized for her :) We had a great time and the cake was delicious :)..I am happy to say that I have no more family birthdays now until next year yaaaah...I am ready for Halloween so now I get to start on all the Christmas goodies..Yipiee....I decided to start with Zoie's little classmates. I am making these little backpacks (the template is in the resources at SCS) and filling them with chocolate balls and candy canes..surprisingly the Christmas candy is not out yet but will be in a couple of weeks I am sure.These are cute they are a bit of work when you have to make so many but the kids will just love them .  So for now here is a picture of what I have made so far.

Here is a random fact that really makes me feel old...I remember like it was yesterday going to the theatre to watch ET did you know that was in 1982 yes you read right...27 years ago...OMG!!! I cant believe that!!!!...Anyways on to my Journal Jar I was so excited when I seen this project  on  Nichole Heady's Blog. What a wonderful idea this would be for any teacher. She has all the questions ready  to print off and everything :)..I used the Teachers apple stamp set from PTI, I think it is one of my favorites. Thanks for stopping by..Monique

Crazy for Challenges #7

Wow it seems like forever since I last blogged...The truth is my whole house with the exception of my husband have been sick for 2 weeks. trying to juggle around a house with everybody sick in it takes a lot of energy :)..So the truth is I have been online but  looking at what everybody else has been doing.... I have had not a minute to do anything of my own :(..The good news is the house is on the mend and this means more time crafting :)..I have made my list of Christmas projects to be done and have started on them. For today I have played along with the ladies over at Crazy for Challenges #7. Here is my take on the sketch. I know it is fall but really seems like winter where I live...Feels and looks weird snow on the ground  cold outside but still yellow and green leaves on the trees., and where some of the snow is melted green grass poking I just love this little bird she is so cute :)...Thanks for stopping by...Monique
