Sorry, not today!

You will not see the 3 infamous paintings today. Why? Well, because it is 10:27 at night and I just completed them. It is too late to get a "great" picture - and we all know how my picture taking skills are - so I will only show you a couple of "sneaky peekies" {I know that peeky is not a word anywhere but my world - but in it's plural form how would I spell it - peekys or peekies??}
Do you have a clue??? What in the heck could it be? Maybe this next one will help . . .
Okay, maybe not!! Hint - look at yesterday's post, read the top 3 - you'll figure it out. I promise to post them tomorrow - with the bedding!

Alright, my goal was to finish them today - I did. Now, I can mark off the first 3 on my ever-growing list! My main goal this month is to stay on track! That is a very hard thing for me to do - but I'm determined to do it this month.

I have 3 more to do, then I start on my sweet and sinister partner's gift! I'm going to do something "super-cool" {I hope!} Last year, I did this - not my usual stuff - but I had a great time making it! I loved the 3-D effect it had going on {obviously - look at the above pictures!} This year will be seasonal too - BUT I think some of you are going to be surprised! Or you might not - it might look like crap - or it might just look "okay" - that would be bad!! I really have been thinking about this thing since last year's swap! Not just what I was going to do, but all the details - ***eXciTeD*** - I've said before that I got an awesome swapping partner! And I think I might just have to throw in some, small extra something to suck up - I want to be her favorite "swapping partner" EVAH!!!

Man, I love getting ready for the fall! My favorite thing - the smells. Especially the cool, crisp, afternoon air - that is a smell that takes me back to some great memories! If they only made a candle with that scent!? But my decorations are a close second! Last year, I got these and I found this! I think I'm actually going to plant mums in the urns this year - no more pumpkin topiaries. I've had them for several years - they got old {and funky.} So, in the next couple of weeks, I'll be dragging this stuff out - I can't wait!!

I hope everyone has a great Labor Day!!

Have a wonderful Labor Day,

NO PUMPKIN TOPIARIES!!!!!!!!!!!! this is an outrage. I will have to carry them on in your honor. although mine are not as nearly as nice as yours. had a bit of a problem with the gorilla glue which is still all over my walkway and ray refuses to let that die but it gives it some character ;)
