Last week, I got around to creating a sample for the shop using one of the latest Basic Grey releases, Aspen Frost. In my opinion, it looks similar to another holiday collection they put out a couple of years ago, but nonetheless, it’s pretty and I like it. Here’s what I made:
I absolutely love the silk ribbon on this one. I’ve been using these ribbons in tons of my stuff recently. Yes, we have them in tons of different colors. The texture is so soft, so it makes it easy to work with and hard to refuse. 😉
This past weekend was one of those on a whim weekends. We woke up early on Saturday morning and wanted to do something fun, but we weren’t sure what to do. Well, I remembered a place that a customer had told me about, and so we thought it would be neat to check out Gizdich Ranch.
They have fresh squeezed apple juice in all sizes. Plus, they sell pies by the slice or by the whole. Their pies are pretty tasty, and they’ve got almost every pie you could imagine, not just apple pie or dutch apple pie. Yum! I still prefer my mom’s apple pie though, but I think I’m just biased, haha.
After gallivanting on the coastal farm, we headed towards the beach, and then, back home.
As far as weekend projects, I had two to accomplish.
First, enjoying our succulents.
…and two, starting our Halloween decorations.
Why so early, you ask?! Well, from now until Halloween, the calendar is busy and it only gets busier. Because I had the extra time, I thought it would be fun to spruce up the mantle for Halloween. It’s not quite complete, but it’s getting there. I woke up the other morning, and G had added some of her “scary” Lego mini figures to the decor. Frankenstein, a witch, a zombie, and Count Dracula, just to name a few, are adding the spook to the mantle, hehe. 😉
On a side note, maybe I’m working too much? …or working too hard? I wish that I had a normal immune system. This morning I woke up with a fever of 102. It’s gone down since then, but I’m feeling icky. Hopefully, after a couple days of rest, I’ll be well enough to see the Endeavor Shuttle fly over Moffett Airfield. Go ahead. Call me a nerd. It’s not everyday that you get to see a space shuttle fly over your house. Be jealous. 😉
