Hot Pad of the Month–August Bluebird

We broke a record here yesterday.  Largest number of days above 90 degrees in one year.  We’re up to 25, and we normally average 13.  We’re also socked in by smoke from the wildfires everywhere.  Mt. Hood is obscured and we’re feeling some not-fun effects from breathing it.  This summer has been crazy, and to…

I spotted some red leaves on one of the trees in my front yard today, and the fact that Starbucks is adding actual pumpkin to the Pumpkin Spice Latte was all over the news.  Autumn must be on it’s way!  Are you ready? Fabric Bunting with One Piece Triangles Staci from Crafty Staci        …

Friday Favorites–Freeze!

First of all, I want to make sure you noticed the topic this week is “Freeze!” and not “Frozen.”  I don’t want a bunch of disappointed Disney fans today.  That said, I’m here today to celebrate the last bit of summer with some treats from the freezer.  So many yummy things happen from just a…

Talented Tuesday Link Party #40

Wow, you were BUSY this week!  We had lots of great projects linked up (which you can see here, in case you missed anything)!  We’re already into August, and I know many of you are getting ready to send the kids back to school, but sometimes that means a little more creative time becomes available. …
