Hi Everyone...

I hope everyone is doing well. I am loving the weather we are having in my world right now...days are nice and nights are cool. And...the best part of all, the trees are starting to change. If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know how much I LOVE Autumn! I am so excited to start decorating. And speaking of that, I have added a link for my Gold Canyon Candle business here on my blog. We have some really cute items for Autumn and Christmas right now, take a sec to click on the link at the top of my blog or in my right side bar and have a look-see. Also...you can place an order from my website and the items will be sent right to your door. The fall scented candles are lovely and they are perfect for adding a bit of warm and cozy atmosphere to your home. Check it out!

Okay. A week or so ago, I attended my 30 year high school reunion!! Well, all I can say, is I am glad I attended and it was nice to visit and re-connect with past friends. (notice I didn't say 'old' friends. *wink*) I have included a few pics...I hadn't been shopping for clothes in YEARS. I went to Macy's with my sister and we just went wild!! I was so happy to learn that I have gone down 2 sizes...I still have a loooooong way to go, but I am so pleased with my progress....down almost 30 pounds now. It's slow going, but I am enjoying the journey. Tonight, SweetP and I are going to take a belly dancing class!!

Putting it all together in my bedroom.

The actual event was on Saturday, but there were things going on, on Friday and Sunday. This pic here is what I wore to the meet-up on Friday night. I have to say, Friday was the most fun for me, just hanging out with my friends. I took my baby sister with me and we made a girls weekend out of it and that was nice.

Okay. Enough about that...Believe it or not, I am back in my Studio and I've made a few cards. I visited my LSS and the papers I saw were so beautiful and you all know how much I love paper! I did purchase a few things and I can't wait to get at them and make something. I will be back in the next few days with a card for you.

Have a great day!

You look great! And so glad you had a lovely time! I had my 10 year this summer...and I just hope they get better in the future, lol.

You look absolutely wonderful, Barb!

I'm glad to hear you had fun at your reunion. I missed my 30-year reunion but look fun to commemorating 40 years out of high school next year. Man, that's a long time. LOL.

The leaves on the trees are starting to change color in Minnesota, too. Fall is the most beautiful season - just not quite long enough.

Thanks for sharing. I'll look forward to seeing a card or two.
Take care!

Can't wait to see the cards you've created!
