Good morning and happy October, friends!

October is my favorite month of the year (pumpkin, apple crisp, cozy sweaters, foliage, boots””hey, when can we start wearing boots?!), so I am so, so, so happy it’s finally here!

I'm so glad it's October.

Speaking of October and all things fall, I recently had the opportunity to design a seasonal wreath as part of a project with Wayfair. They sell all sorts of simple wreaths on their website, so they sent me a couple of them for free to decorate in exchange for providing them with a picture of the final product for a slideshow on their website in a few weeks. I love arts and crafts, so it sounded fun to me!

I wasn’t sure if Michaels would have holiday decorations this early in the year, but I was happy to see they had plenty!

My purchases (minus a glue gun and glue sticks):

I really like how my wreath turned out! Simple yet pretty! Arts and crafts are so fun.

I spent the rest of the afternoon chained to my desk. A bunch of freelance projects suddenly came my way, so those + Health + CNC has me writing and blogging a whole lot. (I still owe you guys a post from my visit to CVS/pharmacy headquarters.)

Lots of computer time means that my needy pug needs to sit ON my lap while I work.

I love my little puglet more than anything, so I make do and work around him. I should probably have carpel tunnel by now.
