Its a wonderful fall day here in charm city. I hear leaves rustling, the air is chilly, pumpkins are starting to appear. i love it!!

And I am happy to announce (actually ecstatic!!!) that i will be participating in the Philly Buyers Market of America Craft this February. I got the news yesterday, and have been bouncing off the walls ever since. Ive started making new lists, and thinking of all the things i need to do. Catalogs, hotel rooms, lighting, postcards, display.... the list goes on and on. And like always...Im enjoying every second of it!

And dont forget to watch the VP debate tonight. Im really looking forward too it, and think it should be very interesting and telling of our country's future. Def tune in!!! I promise not to push my political views on you too much.... but let me just get this out there....

Well, I survived Crafty Bastards! It was a lot of hard work. but definitely worth it. Crafty Bastards organize an awesome show, and are beyond helpful. They make everything SO easy for their vendors!! I love doing their shows! Thanks Crafty Bastards!

I have given myself a little break since the show and have been just been relaxing and catching up on things around the house. One creative thing I have been doing is knitting! I knit a scarf for my dad when i was little, but since then i havent done a thing. Then i found this how-too video on youtube, and it inspired me to try it again. I havent gotten very far, and im just making another basic scarf, but its way fun, and I look forward to more projects. I bought this book at borders last night, and this one may be next! It is filled with cool projects to felt. I plan on included a cool lucite button on this one when im done!
Hope you all are having a good week, happy Wednesday!
