Oh My! Now it’s October…

Sadly my SF Giants did not make it to the next level of the post season. No crying here because they did a remarkable job all year long and even though the last call of the game was clearly wrong, it was more than just one call that prevented their advancement. We will definitely be getting our membership in the 415 club again next year and hopefully the powers that be will sign all the good guys during the off season. How many days until March 31? I am watching this round of the playoffs because I’d love to see Boston beat the Astros (cheaters) and Atlanta beat the dreaded Dodgers. If the World Series turns out to be between Houston and LA, I’m probably gonna pass.

To fill the time, I’ve been working in the studio. I’ve finished a couple of projects that I was making for Thanksgiving.

The first is a fold out card and the second is called a “pocket” album. There is room in both for pictures and journaling. They’d make great gifts! Both are available in my Etsy shop. I’m making another one for Thanksgiving and then I’ll start working on Christmas.

I also finished my third sketchbook and it is on its way to the Brooklyn Art Library as part of The Sketchbook Project. This one is titled “Just a Thought” and the theme was “Thought Box.”

It was fun putting this together. I used a bunch of my favorite “thoughts” and tried to match the pictures to them. You can see the other two books I have in the library here and here. Of course if you live in New York or nearby, you could always go and see them in person – LOL. It’s kind of fun to say I have books in the Brooklyn Art Library but in reality, anybody can do it. In fact, there will probably be a new volume coming out soon since Volume 18 is due back in November. Even if you don’t want to do a sketchbook yourself, there are tons of interesting ones to look at and the library could use the love as it is a non-profit organization and donations are always welcome. I am not sure when this one will be online to view but you can be sure I’ll let you know when it is!

Unfortunately we had to miss the final concert we had scheduled for this year. It was to be Chris Isaak at the Mountain Winery but the hubby got his Covid booster a few days before and had a mild reaction with a headache and body aches. It was also supposed to rain and the venue is outside so we decided to stay home. He would have gone with me if I wanted but there was no way I was going to allow that. We both would have had a miserable time.

Next on the agenda is a quick trip to Oregon to see mom-in-law and then I’ll be getting ready for a scrapbook weekend (OMG I can’t wait for that!) and two holiday boutiques have in November. What’s coming up for you? Thoughts on baseball playoffs? Love to hear from you.

    I enjoy going to a baseball game once in a while, but think of them as individual events, not something to follow. I admire your ability to use your creativity and make all that you do. So cool that your work is in Brooklyn Art Library.

      Thanks Ally! Sadly your comment got in my trash folder so I am just seeing it now. Crazy what WP thinks is trash, huh? I think being in the BAL is so fun to say, but since anyone can do it I have to remember to keep the ego in check – LOL.
