I have learned a valuable lesson today, one which I already knew but ignored. Back up your computer stuff. Sat down today to send some things and my address book was gone "poof". After an hour with Apple Care,  (40 minutes with a language barrier) we discovered yep, it's gone!
I have managed to piece back together from saved emails everyone's address...I hope. 
The reason I mention it is this.....if you don't hear from me via email for a while, well, whoops, I may have missed adding you back in. If you check here regularly you won't miss any events. I always send out email alerts if you don't receive one and then see something listed here, please email me so I can add you back on. Again, sorry for the blip. As the Apple Guy says " this almost never happens to Macs." After 4 Macs  and no problems, I guess I was due.

Now, just this second, I discovered my one sprinkler station has been running for over an hour, because I was on the phone with India and forgot! Holy cow! . Maybe I should duck and cover, this has not been a good afternoon. Hope you all are faring a wee bit better.

Thanks to all who stopped by last evening for previews and this morning for the garage sale. Special thanks to Pam who ALWAYS makes the garage sales easier for me by sharing her laughter and good spirits, because you know some of those Garage Sale people ("Would you take two dollars for this item marked $50.00?"...I mean, seriously people!) can get me to being cranky, OK, rude. Sorry.

To those of you kind and lovely people that I met today at the sale, I hope you will join us at one of our get-togethers. The next event is Finish it Night in November. Watch for email for date.

I am a tired buckaroo and off for a nap. There are a few Halloween pieces left after the sale. I have 2 Large Skeleton couples remaining, some heart make do's just like in the photo here in blog and several smaller pieces. Call if interested and they will be available at Boo to You!

I am trying to post at least once a week. You will receive an e-mail notice also if it is an announcement of, or change to an event, so that it is fair to all who wish to participate.

To the few who have inquired: Yes, there will be a December Gathering. It is called Bliss. No dates yet. 10 spaces only. Because it will be extra special, payment in full will be required to reserve your space.

Don't forget about the garage sale this Saturday. I'm opening up at 7:30, and will close by 1:00. The weather should be nice in the morning. I do have some Halloween items in the sale. I have 2 Queens of the Skeleton Ball and maybe 2 escorts will be done by Saturday also. I also have some heart make do's completed that we'll be making in the Gathering and some mini skeletons and glitter crows from the Halloween countdown. I have some Easter collectibles and some quilts, reproduction and two vintage. There are great yarns and general household stuff like always. If you are coming Friday night to preview, please call first. Have a great weekend!

Fall is coming

Pictures as promised. Halloween has invaded the porch. My beach themed bowls have become fall collections. My Cricket helped with this Trick or Treat Banner for the kitchen. After many shots and many puddles on the floor ( those of you who have met Howie, understand that part) this is the best shot I managed to get of Master Howie in his Halloween hat. My daughter forbid me from doing this fearing I will become one of those old women who dresses her pets up for holidays. But damn the hat was cute.

New pictures coming this week, I promise. I have been too busy creating new surprises and making Gathering VI Boo to You! kits to take any photos this weekend.
I will spend this week getting ready for the garage sale this Saturday the 20th. Friday night previews are permitted, but please call ahead to be sure. Our friend Kathy is having one at her house the same day with her family. They have lots of great stuff too, so check that one out. They are right down the corner from Warm Springs/Valle Verde. There will be lots of signs to follow.
I'm hoping we might finally get some cool weather this weekend. I am ready. I'm hoping to buy a screen door with my sale proceeds, so please come shop....and buy!!!!

Skeleton Ball Queen and Her Escort

This elegant couple in their formal attire have just attended the Skeleton Ball where she was crowned Queen. He boasts a crepe paper bow tie, and rhinestone studded vest while her skirt is adorned with glittered moon and stars and a creepy old tree. He gently cradles a precious pumpkin as his gift to her. I kept giggling while I was creating, because as odd as they are, they make me smile, and keep me company while I am working on more Halloween surprises. I will have some of my Halloween creations for sale at the garage sale September 20th and at Boo to You!

I begin putting together all the kits for Gathering VI the end of this week, so registration is closed, unless you call quick-quick-quick.

To view details of the photos in this blog, simply click on the photo and you will be able to see the projects more clearly. So clearly in fact, you may end up with glitter on you too!
Registration for Boo to You! will be open for one more week. $15.00 off your fee with each new student you bring to class. $25.00 deposit required to hold your space.
Please let me know if you are interested in attending a finish it night in November. I'm considering the 7th or 8th, from 5-10 pm or.....Please email me with your preferred date. It is free to my former students, $15.00 to any "newbies". Everyone is required to bring something for the potluck. If you have not yet finished your advent this would be a good time to do so.
