Here's what I did for the October ATC card for the Creative Mom ATC Exchange. See more of my ATCs and odds and ends at http://www.flickr.com/photos/43967826@N00/
The Theme was Tell Me A Story. What immediately popped in my head when Amy mentioned the theme was The Wolf from Red riding hood reading about a past adventure with some local pigs!
Over the weekend my 7 year old created her first pillow. She's thrilled and now wants to try knitting. She's a girl after my own heart. Her pillow looks just like a taco... I think I'm going to sew some fun things on top to bring it to it's full taco-ability.
We also made a quick trip to emergency care for my little one's ears. Turns out a she had two ear infections... one of which was pretty bad. She's starting to feel better now.
Last night as the weekend came to a close Roxy and I sat in the living room and painted on canvas board. We both did the Christmas balls. I'll post tomorrow.

This is a piece I haven't worked on in a year :(
I don't know if it's the fact that it's fall or what but I have a huge urge to get crafty in the fiber way. I have my new sketch book.... but I keep looking at my sewing machine longingly. I think I'm going to give in and take her for a spin this weekend. Maybe dolls made from outgrown clothing of my girls.
Material Mama has really been in the back of my mind kindling the fiber fire.

Well.... what a day I had yesterday. It started with me saying "Sweetie, what do you think that little buzz I hear in the car is?" I smiled ans spattered"I wouldn't want to break down."
Well wouldn't you know about twenty miles from home Push as I might... she was not accelerating. And so I came to a slow stop in a church parking lot. Understand I'm not ungrateful. Quite the opposite. I mean I drive through some very rough areas, and to end up broke down in a church parking lot is fine by me. Eventually hubby got there, restarted it and on a wing a a prayer, and a very slow journey we got it to the dealership. Have I mentioned we paid this baby off a month ago! Yes, that's right a month ago.
So, it's the transmission. I'm in nifty little rental Impala with leather seats and silver rims. Quite a different world than the mini van. And was I stressed about the car? Heck I could care less. I was to busy flipping out over the fact that of all mornings I was suppose to be designing a holiday card for the CEO of all of Worka-Cola! Oh my goodness was I flipping out about that. but in the end with laptop Finlay in hand, I did get that out the door. It was just from a door in the burbs instead of midtown.
So after the dust settled we put up the Christmas tree. At least that settled the little remaining woes of the day. Who can't get peaceful when looking at the beautiful twinkle of an evergreen flocked with red balls and gold angels.
Here's to a better weekend than the week was!

well my Halloween started by placing my October CMP ATC in the mail. I need to snag the image from my camera and post it. Latter. And then...
I took the day off and had a great time at both of my girls schools, with an hour of helping the church setup in the middle of the day.
My oldest daughters teacher had me carve the class pumpkin. I also read a couple of stories the teacher selected. And we ended the night with a nice melt down compliments of too much sugar, up too late, and interruption to routine. Oh well. Still it was a fun day.
