Autumn happenings

Well you may have noticed I had been trying to post every day in November for NaBloPoMo, but then life changed and we became busy again. So the blog got forgotten for a while.

Also I started reading some great books and so when I had a few minutes free time I was devouring them. Have you read the Septimus Heap books yet? They are really entertaining. I really like how they flow so smoothly between each character’s perspective.

I also started working on a Christmas present for my kids. It is more work then I thought it would be but I think they will really like it. I have been using ideas from these sites.

So far  I made pages for the night and day, an ice cream scoop page, a road page, a clock and an abacus. I am hoping to also make a dress the doll page, a name page for each kid, and some Bible stories scenes.

Have you started making any Christmas gifts this year?

One thought on “Autumn happenings

  1. I think that is cool you are making your own toys, I did not actually make any for the boys, but we finished most of our shopping back in July, I am also reading Septimus Heap I am on #3. I started out reading last spring reading through books 1 & 2, but things have been crazy here so I am almost done with 3. I love reading them.
