The start of autumn

I have been really busy lately getting everything ready for school to start.  My daughter just started college, my son started middle school, and my second youngest started his school career, so we have a lot of changes in the family this year.  All my kids area excited for the new year, except my youngest who seems a little confused about where everyone went.  
This is the view from my daughter's dorm room.  She is going to school in northern Michigan and the scenery is great. 

I am hoping to be able to spend more time creating things in my sewing room this fall and catching up on my art class as well.  I'm not sure how well that will go with a two year old at home, but at least I still have nap time most days.

I have been able to make a few things these last couple of weeks that I can share.
My son had to have a small pillow and pillow case for school.  He loves  super heroes, so I made him a Superman pillow case.
My daughter and I followed Tangie Baxter's Youtube video on making a journal to keep all of your ephemera.   You can keep everything that don't know what else to do with and have a special place for it. Here is my version, it is made from a composition notebook and has scrapbook papers and inked pages.  I have also started to doodle in it when I have a spare minute.  It is all ready to fill.  I have just started to put some things in it. I will have to take some pictures of my daughters because she made a really cool cover for her journal.

This is a spread in my art journal that I am going to add pictures of the kids going back to school. 

I painted this angel last week.  She is one of my guardian angels.

This is a Lifebook lesson that I started a while ago and just finished.  She is an eagle girl.

I was practicing my doodling here.
I was practicing with flowers and blending my Prismacolor pencils.

I know that I overloaded this post, I will try to post more often in the future.
Have a great week,
