September. Wherefore art thou, September?

I don’t know where it went, but it’s gone.  And now it’s October.  While I’m busy prepping a YA Buccaneer post for NaNoWriMo, eating hoards of turkey and pumpkin pie (yes, it’ll be Thanksgiving here in Canada in a few days), and planning my Christmas baking, I thought I’d share a few gems from September.

 

 

I loved:

 

 

♥  Star Wars Identities  ♥  THE TRAGEDY PAPER  ♥  buying shoes  ♥  holidays

♥  Talk Like a Pirate Day  ♥  Handmade Harvest Food & Drink show  ♥  plum shirts

♥  Pumpkin Spice Lattes  ♥  summer tomatoes  ♥ noisy neighbours selling up

♥  coffee breaks with new friends  ♥ Cafe Press   ♥ super cute red library chairs

♥  getting to be creative  ♥ my niece’s cute new haircut  ♥ Amos Lee (where’ve I been?!)

 

 

I’ll leave you with a fun little craft I worked on in September. It stemmed from a sign I made for the library this summer, and a patron asked me to make something for her daughter’s wedding. Vintage skis and a birch bark sign—all made from paper, foam core, markers and coloured pencils. Took me FOREVER, but they were fun to make and she seemed to like them.

    First, the Cuthbert reception?! Love.

    What a great idea to make a list of things you loved about September. I should do that. Because, as you know, September pretty much sucked for me and I’d like to focus on the things I loved about it. 😉

      Thanks, Sara! I always love me a good craft! 🙂

      You should definitely make a list about the good things that happened in September. It might make you feel a bit differently about it. Or maybe just focus on the all the good stuff that’s going to happen in October and November! I just read this great post called “Your Cornerstone of Awesome” where the author, when she’s having especially sucky feelings, remembers all of the amazing things she’s done in her life. What a fabulous idea! http://www.yesandyes.org/2013/10/your-corner-stone-of-awesome.html
