A beautiful fall moon in the eastern sky above my house...I love nights like these!

He is having such a hard time adjusting to life this year. So many new responsibilities...so many new opprotunities...he struggles to remain innocent and young. As I watched him today on our little adventure thru White Memorial, I saw a little boy trying so desperately to find his place in the world. He wants to play, watch cartoons, ride his bike. But he has homework, reading, clarinet lessons, soccer practice, puppet practice and on top of all that he is in the TAG (Talented & Gifted) program, which affords him the opportunity of great learning and experiments above & beyond what is available in the classroom. But even with all that on his plate, he is just a little boy...still a little boy...my little boy. I am in love with this little boy. I hope he can hang on to whatever is left of the boyhood he has while the rest of the world tries to take it away. Someday it will be all a sweet memory...

I had a blast making a couple new crafty things, which can be seen on my Etsy Site. This adorable spider to too cute to be spooky! If you get a chance, check 'em out!
In other crafty news, I just finished up a layout today for my Daytime Scrapping class over at NESC. The layout is beautiful (if I do say so myself) and I am excited to be able to teach it next week. I already have 8 sign-ups for the class!
I have big plans for this weekend...making more of these cute "BOO" ornaments, finishing up some personal layouts, working on Scrap Can Do!, and hopefully working on some things for a couple of craft fairs coming later this year. Lots of work to get done!! Not to mention things like getting Andrew's Halloween costume, laundry, soccer, church, etc. etc. etc...

This weekend is all a blur...had so much going on! I spent the majority (Thurs afternoon, Thurs nite, all day Fri & most of Sat) at the CKC convention in Htfd. I worked at the pre-registration booth and as a TA, made some new friends, saw many of our customers from NESC and had a blast shopping and hanging out with Vanna & Cookie. I am beyond exhausted. But it was back to the store today, full speed ahead!
I have so many ideas running thru my head...new project ideas, layout ideas, gift ideas...I just can't imagine how I will find the time to do it all. I bought some new lil' goodies for Scrap Can Do! AND I met some amazing people...Sarah Milne of Scenic Route, the girls from Rusty Pickle, Jeremy from Piggy Tales, Sid from SEI, the girls at Boxer, and I met a new friend Amber who just recently moved to CT. And the girls from CK were just the cutest! Now all I have to do is find some time...
