A Peaceful Day

Still feeling full, happy, a little sleepy, and enjoying this long 4-day weekend. Thought I would go for a power walk, but it's raining way too hard, so I did some journaling and then went to a craft show with my mother-in-law. I am now feeling like going through my papers, fabrics, and stamps, hoping to create something really fun. I am so thrilled to be able to have choices today! So many days in a row I have too much that I have to do, and not enough time to do what I want to do so badly. This is good. Isn't it nice to feel peaceful and content? I hope you feel this way, too....and that you have yummy leftovers!

In My Book Corner

Here's what I am settling in to read tonight: The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. I love books (and paper, yes!) so this seemed perfect for me. I am relaxing my body and my mind in preparation for lots of Parent-Teacher Conferences before Thanksgiving.
Have you read it ? Tell me what you think!

What are you reading? And, what do you recommend? I love having a new pile to devour...when time allows! Have a great week everyone! Find time to do what you love to do best! ~Kathy♥

Easy Bake Oven...

I love all things gingerbread. I collect all things gingerbread. I eat gingerbread. I even have gingerbread tea and a gingerbread sweater and a homemade gingerbread quilt. I have a 4-foot Christmas Tree that is decorated with nothing but gingerbread, even the star at the top. (I promise to show you pictures after Thanksgiving!). So, I baked...

...with sweet papers & fabrics, of course!! ♥

I dislike cleaning the oven anyways. This was so much more fun!

With Frosting On Top

Good morning! First I really want to thank you all for reading and for your comments. It always makes me smile to know you visited, and it brightens my day when you leave a comment and say hello. Blog Land has been more wonderful than I could ever have imagined. Meeting you is a journey highlight. Thank you! ♥

And now I'd like to leave you with two morning frosted beauties to gaze upon, in the hopes that they make you smile...


maybe a chuckle when you picture me in mismatched jammies, and old pink flannel bathrobe and boots, crouching in the crisp, frozen morning air with a camera! (Hopefully my neighbors were so enthralled with this morning's beauty that they didn't see me out there...yikes!)

Enjoy your day. I am sending you good thoughts, blessings, and a few moments of peace to just "be". ♥ Kathy

It's the Most Wonderful Time...

Aaah, the anticipation...

I started thinking about the holidays...and know... I couldn't resist! I played elf. Why have it all last only a few days when it can truly last for a whole season?!

New! At PaperPumpkin!
{Mia and I are so excited to celebrate another happy season with you!} :D

A Bit of Vintage Style Inspiration...

...and memories of Grama's wooden spools.

I adore Baker's twine. Can't wait to use tons of it at Christmas time, wrapping pretty little packages and hanging sweet tags! ♥ New at PaperPumpkin!

Sing a Rainbow

I so love the sky. I could just gaze at the stars and the moon and the sunrises and sunsets forever....and then....
...another gift from up above! What a wonderful surprise this was! (If you look closely, you'll see the double rainbow!). Hope this makes you smile!
