Unusually for us we aren’t up at the cottage when the kids are off school for half term. As my husband is saving his annual leave for our Florida trip in February, so the kids are home all week, and enjoying it! There hasn’t been much of a schedule, and after a busy couple of months I think we all were ready for this break.
There has been some pumpkin carving
and some more autumn decor around the house
I made this autumn word art for the mantle piece
I tried a delicious new slow cooker recipe – bacon wrapped chicken with BBQ sauce and apples. I will share it soon.
Tomorrow night will be Fall Fest in our church – we have a non-scary alternative fun and free event for the community. It is a very popular event, with lots of families coming along. I think I am down to help with the badge-making craft.
My jewellery making for www.janmarydesigns.com is stepping up a notch for the pre-Christmas rush. I am attending a few local craft fairs, restocking some shops, and still available for direct orders too.
These beaded watches are a popular new addition this season – available in a wide range of colours.
And these owl earrings are very popular too
I have been dabbling in some felting recently too – both wet felting and needle felting. Not quite ready to share my creations yet, but soon……
So, how is life with you?
Is it half-term wherever you are?
If you have been effected by the recent hurricane Sandy I pray you and your family are safe. My son has been fascinated by it, watching the destruction and power of nature is both awesome and scary.
