Back To School!

I have to admit to having a certain wistful feeling on the first day of school for the past few years. While part of it was sending the oldest kidling off to another year of elementary school, a lot of my wistfulness was missing that sense of anticipation a new school year brings.

This Septmember, however, I've got something to be excited about: I've been busy in my studio making some new things for my Etsy shop! It's not quite the same as getting a box of 64 crayons with the built-in sharpener but pretty darn close. I'm especially excited about a new handbag design I've been working on. I'm still tweaking the design a bit but hopefully I'll have some ready in the next week or so.

I've also been making some new 3 Pocket Flip Wallets from my big stack of fabric. Here's a sneak peek:

Are you excited for Back-To-School season?

Sadly, I must confess to a heart full of glee accompanying each September that finds me free to continue the life that I love minus the odius task of returning to school.

BUT! I do like autumn and I love your new work :)

I love September! Just the feeling of a fresh start. I love it!
I was a bit sad about Thing One having to leave us for such a large chunk of the day, but she loves it, and the organization that the schedule requires will be good for me.

I don't have any wee ones to send off to school - but I do love this time of year. Fall is my favorite. The colors, the weather, the foods... it's all good. : )

Oh yes, I love fall colors and food, too! And I have a fall birthday so it's my favorite time of year!
