Oh My Gosh, It's November!!!

NOVEMBER!!!  How can this be?  Although we are having yet another heat wave, with temps to be nearing 100 today, we are surely about to be done with this crazy heat!  I  hope so!   I have put my summer wardrobe away, and taken out my winter things.  I have put away my Halloween Jack O Lantern's, and the Great Pumpkin light has been put away for another year.  I leave my Fall things, like pumpkins and leaves and such, up until Thanksgiving.  And the way time is rushing by, that will be here before we know it.
Yesterday would have been my Dad's birthday.  And today is my big brother David's birthday.
Happy Birthday brother!!!  Your gift with four legs will be delivered to your house by Wednesday.  This photo was taken in Hawaii a couple of summers ago.  I think I am going to go back to lighter hair.
I have been crazy busy finishing all of my orders, getting them shipped, and now am working hard to prepare for my boutique to be held on December 1st.
There will be lots more Bloomies, more head bands, for adults and kids, more colors in ear warmers, and a variety of scarves and cowls. 
There will be some Christmas items.
Some pillows, and ipad cases, etc.
  If my blog posts are sparse, you know where I will be.  Working away in my sewing room!!  But I will still be peeking in on all of your blogs.
Have a GREAT day!!
XO  Kris

You look positively movie star-ish in that photo! I also have put away all my Halloween stuff and now have turkeys and pumpkins on the table. Not long until we can throw caution to the wind and put out our Christmas stuff.. the day after turkey day!
((hugs)), Teresa :-)

You have much more energy than I do these days. It's going to be pretty chilly here this weekend. The highs will be in the 60's. Looking forward to boots and sweater weather!

Hi Kris, I even keep some Halloween things out until Thanksgiving because it is all in the same colors and festive, plus the grandkids can then see them! Love all your boutique items, I can see you are busy, I'm sure it will be a huge success!
You look so pretty in that picture, relaxed and happy! Take care, xoRobin❤

Debbie said...

Goodness can you believe this heat? haha. We hit 95 today! My air has run all day it seems. You certainly have been busy, but then you always are. : ) I am busy with my Christmas sewing though I am cutting way back this year with mom. I'd love to get to your boutique...who knows maybe I will see you there! Enjoy your week!

Jill said...

That is a beautiful picture of you!
100 degrees? I'm jealous, been freezing here, lol.
You have made so many lovely goodies, sure to bring smiles to many. Hope you get a little rest time for yourself too.

Good luck with all of your projects. I am proud of you.

Happy Thanksgiving month. I love November.
Hugs, Lura

Nicolle said...

Have fun with all of your sewing. I love everything you make! You have been busy.

Yes, it's so hard to believe it's November already. I fretted about the summer dragging out forever, and now we're into Fall already. Of course, you could use some cooler temps there. Wishing that for you, soon!

Happy Birthday to your brother, and to your dad. My dad and your dad are probably having the birthdays of their life up in heaven. hugs.

Lynne said...

I can't remember running the air conditioner in November, but we are in the 80's today!!!! You are really busy. That's a huge pile of crochet goodness, and the Christmas fabric looks like fun!
Take care

I bet you're so sick of that heat. We are in the 20's at night and 30's by day. Are you interested in that kind of weather?? Love the pic of you and your brother, you are so darn cute. I can't believe how many things you have made and still are making more. Hope you earn tons of $$$.

NanaNor's said...

Hi Kris, Oh girl you are so creative-wow I am sooooo impressed! I pray you make ooddles of $$$ on your goodies. 100 degrees, we are hoping to get to 70 today. I love, really love, the picture with your brother-you look so beautiful(yes I love your hair lighter too)but you could be wearing a bag and still look incredible. What a handsome brother-you two look alike.
Hope you have a cooler day today.
Love, Noreen
