This week flew by. I have been mostly using all of my creative energy to make a Thomas the Tank Engine Halloween costume for my son. I will post a pic when it is done. I have started an inspiration board with a Winter theme. The above pics are from the start of it. The paper cutting is fun. My lines aren't so smooth but it is ridiculously tiny. I have lost some of the pine needles in the process. I am getting very excited for the winter and the approaching holidays. My kids are getting a tiny bit older and we are looking forward to sleigh riding, ice skating, cookie baking and gift giving.

I had hoped to have a Fall color story to show but I just haven't done it. I do have to say that the fall weather has been so great here in NY. We have been going to the playground every day (except the past two days). The trees and mountains are just seeming to be so much more vibrant to me this year. Just beautiful. We have been raking up leaves and my kids have been jumping in big piles and having a blast. So I hope to have a beautiful color story to reflect all of the natural beauty I am surrounded with. So grateful for it all!!

I hope you are having a joyful and creative weekend wherever you are!

I'm getting excited about the holidays too! It's so wonderful when you can, and it isn't overwhelming or sad or stressful like it has been some years for me! I love your pine cut out and look forward to seeing more of your winter inspirations!
