When you stay up late....

you get no sleep but lots of things done! Working on lots of new things as the weather gets cooler and we head into fall. It seems that I'm not the only one that suddenly has a burst of energy and ideas around Autumn time. I'm not sure what it is about the season that makes you re-invent yourself. For us New Englanders, maybe it's the knowledge that winter is right around the corner and we have to kick it into high gear before we bunk down with our blankets and hot chocolate!

Finally, as promised, I'm close to finishing my Turtle Girls of Summer paintings. This is a sneak peek of them almost done. With a few finishing touches and a beautiful ribbon for them to hang on, they just might make their debut this weekend.

Also making their debut.....MAGNETS! Don't the turtles look great in glass! I'll be adding these to my Etsy shop, but I'm bringing them along to some great fall fairs coming up.

If you're in the area, stop by the Preston City Scarecrow Festival tomorrow (Saturday, the 19th) from 9 to 6pm. I've been before and was pleasantly surprised by how big this small town fair was! It's free to the public and there will be food, crafts, pumpkin painting, a moonbounce, a scarecrow competition.......fall fun for everyone! I'm looking forward to it. Hope to see you there!!!
