After weeks and weeks of 90+ temps, I'm eagerly anticipating the 60-ish temps coming our way tomorrow and Thursday. I may have to harvest and process my herbs sooner than I thought, though. I'll have to watch the lows over night or all my beautiful Thai Basil, Tarragon and Jalapenos will be lost. I lost my Cilantro in the August heat :(
Now if only I had time to act on the inspiration provided by Patchi today! Alas, I'm smack in the middle of post shipping, pre-November kit planning. But you can enjoy her great layout using the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist portion of the Bigger than a Breadbox kit. See her fantastic work on her Blog. She's got a few tips for you:
I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page on the "Spring Zag" paper.
- I punched out stars from the "Spring Stars" paper and adhered them to the large round brads that came in the kit.
- Pink Paislee glitter alphas for the title (Croptoberfest '10 prize).
- Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type words added to the journaling list.
More inspiration. . .of course! Today's challenge in the month-long sketch series is simple, flip the sketch completely upside down.
The night gets busy after the kids come home - homework, dinner, soccer practice for the boys, our daughter is scoring a Level 4 volleyball game and then supporting the Varsity team (late night for her), back-to-school night for the 5th grader and DH is at a doctor appointment this evening. But did you see? I have homemade raspberry jam on the counter!
