I don’t know what it’s like in your neighborhood, but when I step outside here in Oakland, I sense it right away: Fall is in the air!
I’m lucky enough to have a few turning trees on my street, so I don’t miss out entirely on the brilliant autumn colors I remember from growing up in NH. Speaking of brilliant autumn colors, I’m thrilled to share this stunning maple leaf rose bouquet DIY from a fellow Kate — clay, fiber and paper artist Kate Hust. Kate first learned how to make these a few years ago from a retired art teacher in her community, and now they’ve become an annual tradition when fall rolls around.
Her instructor taught her to wrap the leaves really tight, so they looked like rose buds, but Kate has modified the technique a bit to suit her own tastes: She likes to find the really big leaves and make them with large open “petals.” Craft Ideas, Kids Crafts, Recipes and More.

I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks.

A little ART CAN'T HURT. Lately finding balance has been something of a struggle. for this girl who has always worked outside the home, not currently having employment has me in a twilight zone. home life now seems like it was easier when loads of laundry, kids homework and dirty dishes had to be squeezed into the wee hours of mornings and nights of full days where ongoing work projects and encroaching deadlines were priority. i used to inwardly roll my eyes when i would hear a stay-at-home mom friend mention how stressed she was and how there wasn’t enough time in the day to get everything done.
If she only knew….i would think to myself. i was that judgemental working mom. now the shoe’s on the other foot and let me be the first to put my foot in my mouth. methaphorically, of course. so may i offer my apologies to all stay-at-home moms, for being judgemental. i am truly and sincerely sorry. 8:45am P/U FLORAL & PERISHABLES 9:30am CHECK EMAIL / REPLY TO VOICEMAILS / CONFIRM ARRIVAL TIME WITH SITE MGR.
