Update...Update...Update!!!!!

Hello all of my wonderful blogging friends - oh how I've missed everyone!! I know I've been away practically ALL summer and I apologize for that but I have good reason which I will explain. I promise I have not forgotten about any of you or my blog and I do plan to continue with it and to update more regularly!! Okay so here's the BIG news, the very thing that has kept me away for soooo long. Are you ready for this????


We're expecting another baby!!!!
We are SOOOO excited!!
I have had morning(and noon and night) sickness something awful and truth be told, I just didn't feel up to doing anything including decorating or creating or sadly, even blogging for awhile there :( However, I am back to my old self now. I'm feeling 100% better and I have my energy back!! In fact, I have even begun (well actually I'm just about finished) to decorate for fall. We went from 90 degrees to 70 degrees literally overnight and the evenings are getting down into the 40's. There is definitely a chill in the air and I am feeling so much better. The zeal for decorating and creating and blogging has returned!! I'm back!


So, here are a few photos of what I've been working on


This time of year is beautiful and I enjoy decorating for the autumn season just as much as I enjoy decorating for Christmas.



Here are a few fall inspired pillows that I made.


Enjoy the day and I promise I'll be back to visit everyone and to post on a more regular basis. I hope that you all will continue to visit often! I have missed you all so!
God Bless!
xo,
Kathleen
