After a week of rain, Saturday was a perfect autumn day. On that day the sun stayed out long enough for us to venture over to the pumpkin patch to partake in a little mud and madness. There was quite a lot of mud actually, but it was still a nice break from all the work I've been doing on the upcoming book. Which, I might add, is coming together quite nicely; in its own way and on its own time table. Because, creating a book from scratch (all by yourself) is quite a production, requiring sufficient amounts of chocolate and the occasional happy distraction to keep things moving along. Having two incredibly creative daughters around also keeps me motivated. I'm collaborating with them on a couple of other projects. These projects are basically their idea. I'm just like the consultant-mom-cheerleader-project manager-person behind the scenes, who on occasion provides assistance when they ask. Or points them in the right direction when they need a compass. We hope to reveal more soon, but for now, it's all very hush-hush. Oh we do love a bit of mystery.
Other unrelated sweetness that is making me smile right now:
1. the '09 fall/winter GreenGate catalog
2. the first project of the copy cat challenge
3. Grace's new Petite Patisserie dollhouse sweets collection on flickr
4. All the funny and uplifiting comments (regarding that last post). Thank you! You all deserve a big slice of pie!
