Autumn is on the way!


It's starting to really feel like Autumn in my neck of the woods.  The leaves are changing and there is that crispness in the air that I just love.  With the change in weather, it makes me think towards Christmas!  Of course, that will mean tradeshows and vendor fairs.  I will be posting projects as I get to them, but for today I will leave you with a few snaps of what I've been working on.  First up, a quick Birthday card using a paper-pieced owl:

Next, I have been loving working with this new paper from Stampin' Up! called "Storytime":

I even pulled out the sewing machine and stitched the papers with a zig-zag stitch!  "Sew" much fun! hahaha ;)

I belong to a "Kit of the Month" Club from Simon Says Stamp (one of my most favorite suppliers!)  This next sample was made with supplies I received in the kit.  Super cute!  A lot of the time these kits are very outside my "comfort" zone with patterns and themes.  I find it is a great way to stretch my creativity and push myself to try something new!

So, that is all I have for you today!  Thanks for looking...and as always, if you want to see my most recent creations, please follow my page over on Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/freshbyjess

Have a wonderful rest of the week!
