LOVE this Time of the Year!

I absolutely love this time of the year. The summer can be so chaotic with events planned every weekend. The routine gets thrown off with the kids being out of school. The first week of September can be insane with all the back to school preparation and activities. 
But by mid September.....ahhhhh. I feel like life is easing back into the speed that I like.

Crafting - So much better when Shared with a Friend!
Those of you on Facebook would have seen this photo already, but I had to share on the blog. Sunday was spent Smashing with my favourite crafting companion!  As you can see, she has discovered WASHI TAPE!  Ha.  So beautiful and so easy to use!  I too fell in love with it this weekend. It truly made my heart smile when I added it to my smash book. Check out my pages!
This is the pink floral washi tape.
So feminine and OH so perfect for my Barefoot Venus page!

So what Smashing is about?  Clip images of your favourite product or things that make up your life
and JUST ADD IT to your pages!  Trust me....NO thinking is required.
Just do what makes you happy!  You can see this page is not yet complete but that is ok.
A Smash Book is a work in progress.  One day it will be full once I find another product
worthy of mentioning in my Smash Book.

 Another Reason Why I LOVE this Time of the Year

Another reason why I adore this time of the year is because the new product just keeps filling the store!  You want Halloween?  Sure!  You want Christmas? Ok. You need chicken wire?  You got it! Ha. 

Maybe this part of the post is best left to photos!  Enjoy!

Embossing Folders
Brand spankin' new EMBOSSING FOLDERS from Sizzix.  The packaging is unreal!
Come on in to see why I got SO excited - $12.99
EMBOSSING FOLDERS from Cuttlebug.  This comes with a 5x7 folder and one very cool border strip.
Someone was asking for Chicken wire so I brought it in.  That's just how I roll!

More Washi Tape  by Doodlebug
This tape is $4.50 per roll but you get 12 yards (our other rolls at $4.00 for 10 yards).
This is the washi that was used during the August CRAFT-TEA TIME on my little tags!

Can't you see using this on adorable little white paper bags
filled with special treats for special Trick or Treaters?!?

These frames come in white, black and brown and I loved the price point and quality!
