was like a bouquet of sharpened pencils, as Tom Hanks said. The temperatures crept up to mildly warm this week, but before and after, it was chilly. I know I wrote it before, but it’s crazy how fall is almost here. I’m excited for the season and the clothes to be worn, but I’m also excited because this time of hear is great time to DIY – it’s like DIY season! Homemade spiderwebs, Halloween cards, Christmas cards, wreaths, and garlands. Over the next couple of months, I’ll be using my hands to not only make clothes, but other fun things too. If you’re like me, you already have a secret Pinterest board of handmade things you want to make.
And will everyone wish a happy birthday to my brother, James? It was his birthday on Tuesday an unfortunately, a couple of states and a full time job got in the way of me being able to celebrate with him. I’m mailing his present this weekend and let’s just say it involves Marilyn Monroe. He has a thing for blondes.
