Apples apples and more apples!

Whew what a week! We went from running the air to turning on the furnace and I'm so happy that the fall weather is here. But the weather change really gave me some trouble and I slept most of the beginning of this week... so my blog was neglected not to mention my wonderful family!

But things are getting back to some what normal what ever that can be? The growth chart classes are posted and coming along if you are interested you can still join. We are just getting to the techniques and I have some great things to share! Just click on Carrie's Classes here you can follow the thread to sign up.

It's apple picking time! And on Sunday we will go to our favorite farm Eckart's the whole family goes. I'm looking forward to the country music, the petting zoo and a squealing fun pig race that's such a hoot! Then we will hop on the Deere Express a wagon pulled by a tractor through the orchards full of Jonathan, gala and granny apples were we will pick so many apples we won't know what to do with...well I guess we will be making candy apples, apple pie, apple fritters and maybe some apple sauce... I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

The candy apple file is now available for purchase in the store. Thank you!

Just in time for apple picking I've made some awesome files and I'm giving one of them away today! You will get the candy apple file just click on the link above.......And below I've made a file that is now available in the store.... It's all you need to complete a full layout! I got the idea from a layout I made when Julie was three... Look at her she is now seven,
time goes so quickly!

As you can see I've added more embellishments to the file then what's in my layout...that's because back then I had to hand draw and cut each element! YUCK! Thank goodness for the cutting machines!
Well I better go Jesse's says he's going to make me some tea...... who knows what he's getting into!

Have a great weekend!

Glad you're feeling better. That was a welcome cold snap, although I haven't turned on the heat. It sure feels good!
Enjoy the weekend!

Carrie - you must live pretty close to me! I am in Troy Illinois and when I saw Eckart's in your post I almost fell out of my chair!

Hi Tammy,

Well we are some what close I'm in St. Louis..and I'm glad you didn't fall out of the chair!!! we actually didn't make it this weekend to Eckart's We heard the orchard was closed and we were in need of a quieter place... so we spent Saturday out at Rockwood's Reservations...swinging on veins, going through caves with five girls that screamed at everything! My ears are still ringing and yes Jesse came too but he's all boy and climbed the cliffs freaking me out saying "No I can do this myself".

So do you ever come to St. Louis?
