Kids are back in school, it’s crunch time!

September 4, 2012

My kids are in college now so they’re hardly ever home anymore which I definitely have mixed feelings about. Even so, I can very vividly recall that elated feeling when school started again and I was free! Almost magically I had time to work. Imagine being happy about that! I remember that the most frustrating feeling in the world was having the work to do, wanting to do it and never having enough time, and some days, no time at all to accomplish anything. Children are a blessing and you’re never quite prepared for how completely they change your life!

So now that the kids are back in school, fall is instantly here and everyone is unveiling their autumn treasures.  Here are some of mine and also a few awesome collections by other talented Etsians ~
