Can it be September Already???

Where the heck did August go???? Where did Summer go???? and I fear it will not be to long and I will be saying the same for September ...YIKES!!!!
I love the fall...pretty colors, nice smells in the air, Halloween, Candy Corn.... you get the picture...but as I get a-hem!! OLDER time keeps on slippin slippin slippin into the future...at an alarming rate.

Our mornings here in Havasu are getting nice and cool...great to sit outside in the morning and have coffee and watch our pup swim. Soon we will be dipping the kayaks into our beautiful lake and heading out for glorious mornings of adventure and excitement ...can not wait!!
Soon we will once again be setting up the Old Tipi for the winter months...really looking forward to that...get some of my best ideas in there ...it is safe and secure...like a canvas womb!

Last couple of week I have been jotting down possible dolls to make this season through winter and I am pretty excited...now I secretly know that I will never get them all done...so now the process of elimination starts , this year I do not look forward to it.
Working on a witch right now...she is not mini...but rather approx. 11" tall ..I like to really shaking it up in sizes...keeps ya artistically frosty. Miniature to 9 inch to 11 back to 5 1/2 ...smoke is coming from my left ear...is that a good sign or bad...lol!!

Anyway I like this little lady...reminds me a lot of one of our favorite characters from several years back... 'Matilda Thistlewise' ...the witch who roamed the forest selling her wares to the fairies and other magical creatures...
This is similar in size...colors are different and my little lady is a retired witch...filling up her newly found free time with interesting projects... you'll see.... she is fun and I am enjoying costuming her.
No name firm yet...but I have several good ones jotted down...but will have to wait till the lace bit of lace is added and her Hat placed firmly onto her head before she will pick her name...hopefully it is one of the ones I have chosen.

OK...just wanted to pop in and say howdy do and wish everyone a safe Holiday weekend.... may the hurricane pass way out to sea and pass you by completely...

Hugs To All

Jodi

I love this time of the year too, though it's been a bit rainy here in the UK this week so my poor little garden is a bit soggy and full of snails!Look forward to seeing your new creations :-)

And I am so far behind reading blogs it is almost October :-)

We haven't cooled down much here in the day but it is nicer at night. And we are heading up north so so that will be very nice I think.

I have to get ready for Halloween this year...this new neighborhood we moved into goes all out. We moved in last Oct 31st and I totally forgot it was Halloween and had about 100 disappointed kiddies on the doorstep :-(

Last year there was a street party as well which seems like it was fun.
