Welcome Fall.

Today I read something interesting on Krista Smith's blog.   (Saturated Canary)  She is one of the most generous people I have ever come across, and today she is sharing a new image, along with a new charity.  Please take a look at her blog when you can and give it the attention it deserves.

All of the details are here.

In honor of Krista and her generous heart, I have a post it pad that I made with an SC image for my mom's birthday.  She is always giving others post it pads that I have made, so I wanted to make one for her to keep.

Because of the bulk from the post it pad, I didn't want to cram this in an envelope, so instead I threw together a little box/purse for the card.  After I was finished, I realized there was a lot of red/green on this, and I didn't want it to look like Christmas, but I figured it was Fall now so it isn't totally out of place.  

Well, I just finished watching the episode of Parenthood from last night and that darn show always makes me cry.  I am also half way through the last Hunger Games book, Mockingjay, and that isn't much happier than the show I just watched.  The clouds are out today, and it's a real downer.  Time to hide out in the ol' craft room and see if I can whip up some sunshine for myself!



  1. This is adorable, your mom is going to love it! The holder is perfect...not Christmassy at all.
    What a sweet little sentiment!

    I cried watching Parenthood last night, what more can that family go through?!!

    You're going to LOVE the ending of Mockingjay...it's perfect! I can't wait to see it play out at the movies.

    Don't be gloomy, the clouds will lift.
