As September Ends

This post really has nothing to do with crafting. But I realized that today is the last day of September. Which means tomorrow is the first day of October. October seems so much more autumn-ish than September. But I got horrible news today, it's supposed to be in the 80s this weekend.

Yes, 80s. 

I don't like hot weather...I like 60s and 70s........but 80s are just that weird temperature in between perfect and way to hot (that would be in the 90s...or more). I'm an autumn girl. Give me jean weather. Let me wear a hoodie. And throw leaves. OH! I love the sound of leaves crunching under my feet...happy sigh...

Unfortunately...we're not far enough into autumn for me to have any pictures of dry leaves and brown grass and cute boots (that you can't wear in the winter when it starts snowing because they're not waterproof...) and jackets (that also can't be worn in winter because they're to thin to actually keep you warm so you end up wearing ANOTHER coat over that one). 

I <3 Autumn!

My mom is a Indian summer kind of person, so she's loving the weather. I want chilly days! :D

You want to know what I'm really loving? Pinterest. And I'm proud to say that I was a part of it before I heard about it through my bloggy friends! Not that anyone needs to acknowledge my humbleness on this subject. :P But I really do love's so addicting and amazing. 

And since I don't have any autumny pictures due to nothing much autumny yet, here are some of my recent autumn finds on Pinterest.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins...anything pumpkin screams autumn.

This photo makes me so happy....

Hoodie love! Autumn weather equals hoodie weather.

And cupcakes. Lots and lots of cupcakes. This is my new favorite cupcake recipe. I know cupcakes really have nothing to do with autumn, but I plan on making a lot of cupcakes this autumn...and winter....and spring....hahaha.

I'm so happy it's almost October, it means we'll finally get some real (and consistent) autumny weather! Tomorrow begins one of my favorite months, goodnight all!

Red Leaves and Sunshine

As promised, here are a couple of pictures of our maple tree! It's dappled with red leaves now! And it's cool today, it actually feels like an autumn day. I love it. :)

See them? Only a few...but I'm still happy.

While I was taking these pictures I noticed that it would be a really good time for My little brother, Joe, (somewhat reluctantly) let me take some picture of him to play around with sun flare. This is my favorite.

That's it for now! I'm off to do stuff... :P

I just logged on to see that I have had an average of about 5 page views per day EVERY SINGLE DAY since my last post. You guys have no idea how excited that made me. Then I realized that I haven't been posting...then I felt bad. And now, I'm posting.

This summer has flown by. It consisted of multiple trips to an old amusement park with good friends, a long trip to the northwest to visit various family members, and lots of other stuff including photography. Lots and lots of photography. I haven't been doing much jewelry making. I feel like I go through phases....sewing, jewelry making, crocheting, photography, sewing, photography, jewelry making, photography, crocheting, lots of photography. Can you tell where I'm stuck right now? If you guessed photography, you're right.

However I do have some projects that I need to's just matter of actually getting pictures and editing them. Actually, taking the photos isn't the problem, it's that editing part that I don't get around to with these kind of photos. :P But please keep an eye out for those as I really, really, REALLY want to keep this blog up and running and I know that it's up to me to continue posting for that to happen.

In other news, autumn is upon us...though the temperature sure isn't making it feel like it here. But I'm excited for it none the less. I love the word autumn, so much more mysterious than 'fall'. And guess what I noticed today! There are leaves starting to change color!!! Despite the 80 something degree heat... :P I snapped a few photos, they just need to be edited. I'm actually working on that now, so you should see them later today or sometime tomorrow morning.

In short, thank you to all my loyal readers who continue to check the blog even though I haven't posted for well over a month!
