It's Fall Ya'll!! I'm lovin' the weather!

The last time I made a blog post was at the beginning of my is now the beginning of my fall . . . so where has the time gone?  I have no idea!!  My summer was full of lots of things, not to mention computer problems, so every day my posting was put on the back burner.  Now that I have a new computer I have got to get out of the habit of moving things to that back burner!  I have so many things I want to share I am committing myself to post more regularly and it is starting today! 

Cool air is creeping into South Carolina and I am so ready for it.  This has been one of the hottest summers I have ever lived through.  It has been said that the only thing between Columbia, South Carolina and Hell is a screen door and honey, I am here to tell you that is so true!  Another reason for not posting much during the summer.  My computer is in my room over the garage and even though it is air-conditioned up there the hot Carolina sun beams down on that roof and it's never cool enough to stay up there more than 10-15 minutes.  I even had to drag my sewing machine downstairs to a bedroom so I could work in comfort!!  But the hot days are coming to end this weekend and Carolina breezes are starting to blow.  My creative juices are starting to flow and after decorating with  pumpkins and fall decor on the inside I can't wait to work on adding a fall flair to my screen porch.  My porch is my haven...mostly in spring and fall because it is much more bearable.  Cool mornings and evenings are calling my name!  I have some ideas for making pillows and maybe placements using this graphic . . .

Have you ever used heat transfers with graphics?  I've been doing it for years...long before there was ever a Silhouette machine!  And speaking of Silhouette, I treated myself with a little surcie by purchasing one of these babies when they went on sale this summer!  I am so excited about learning about this machine and finding some good projects.  If anyone has ideas they would like to pass on, please send me the link! 

And finally . . . I have some exciting news!  My daughter Brooke is engaged!  My new son (I don't like the term son-in-law) will be Brice Sprayberry and we couldn't be more thrilled!  Brice surprised us all when he asked Brooke to be his bride at Battery Park in Charleston on September 15 . . . but I wasn't surprised at all when she said YES!  They are the perfect couple and I pray God's blessings on them both for a long, wonderful life together!  Thanks for spending a little time with me today!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend....fall is in the air!
