Hello Fellow Doodlers!

Bubble and Sweet's, Linda V, will have you whipping up a batch of your store bought macarons into her 'lollipop' swirls with her ganache filling and sprinkle swirls in no time!

While raking leaves I came across some rather colorful ones that I just had to save ... I didn't know exactly how I was going to use them, but, because I love the colors of Fall/Autumn I felt the need to do so. Then I came across this blog-bit-of-info, and because I'm a Mod Podge-addict and "jar-fanatic," this seemed like the reason for my collecting fall leaves!

A Little Fall Leaf Re-use Candle Project - While Gingerbread Snowflakes a blog about seasonal comforts, Pam Harris, sat brushing Mod Podge on dozens of leaves to use on her Fall wreath she decided to light the little fall leaf candle she made last spring to keep her company. All you need to make one: dried, pressed fall leaves, regular Mod Podge, a jar and a brush.

And here's some freebie "jar images"!

The Gentleman Crafter is my artist-idol! As I was browsing through Dyan Reavley's blog to check out all the ingenious journal page projects I happened upon her post of The Gentleman Crafter's DYLUSIONAL SCHOOL BUS! Is this not fun or what, I ask you!

Oct. 12 is officially the second I Love Yarn Day, which is a holiday made up by the Craft Yarn Council to celebrate all things yarny.

Annie and Jean, two thirfty college students are just trying to find their way through life. Jean, a paper addict; journals, stationery, books ... a crazy hoader, prefers to fancy up regular paper with her own little details. Jean's walkthrough of Stitch Your Own Stationery shows how to stitch up your own stationery with whatever cutesy header or decals you'd like using simple stuff!

SITCH PLAY: Simple Cast-On Stitch Flower. Once you get the Cast-On Stitch down (shown in video), there's really nothing difficult about making the flower. The only "trick" is on the very last stitch!


So grab a Milliner Needle #5, some Perle Cotton thread (or whatever thread you want to use - not sewing machine thread), and a piece of fabric (cardstock can be used to-I would adhere a piece of lite-weight interfacing to the back or something similar to prevent any tearing) and work-it-out-together following the photo detailed steps. Also, here's a "placement and size tip" that I use; using a small piece of plastic canvas square you will get a good "dot" alignment (shown in photo 2) by using the holes as a guide.
100% Rayon Thread adds a satiny, lustrous finish to every stitchery project. It's washable, colorfast and retains its luster after washing. Ideal for any stitching project, including other Embroidery projects, Cross Stitch, Needlepoint, Smocking and Tassels. Use it to compliment Ribbon Embroidery, Hardanger and wearable stitchery. We have EVERY EdMar color and weight available.

This 22-page Stitch Play Printable will teach you, step-by-step, how to work two dimensional embroidery stitches: the cast-on stitch and the double cast-on stitch. You'll also learn how to create four different flowers using the stitches. The Printable is packed with step-by-step photo instructions, helpful hints to ensure your success, and clear diagrams.
Once payment of $5.00 is complete, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with a download link, so that you can receive your Printable right away and start creating beautiful cast-on stitch flowers! File type: PDF (6.8MB)

Do you love "Journals" and journaling? For some very inspiring page designs and ideas you will love browsing through Love, Light, Peace blog's clever creations! I have to seriously plan to do some journaling/journal designs next year. These designs look so freeing, but gorgeous and something I need to start creating! Bonnie McLain is such a "hoot"!

RIBBON TYING TUTORIAL VIDEOS by Kittie at Kittie Krafts, gives you some unique ways and various bow idea how-to's to help you create bows with ease that will compliment any project!

Explore fun techniques using Tim Holtz's Distress Markers. Because they're Distress, they're reactive with water which opens many creative doors.  As with everything Distress, you have all 36 of the usual colors in the line available for play, plus Picket Fence.  Barbara at Joggles will show you the basics of using them and then some other techniques that take advantage of the markers' "plays well with water" capabilities.  You'll find the techniques useful for your journals, cards, mixed media collages... and a whole lot more!  They're versatile and oh-so-easy to use and get great results with.
