Can you believe it is *after* Labor Day??

All I can say is "Wow" and "how very cool" .... bring on the cooler temps too - I really want to wear sweaters and wool sox!

If there is a 'down side' to all of this - it is the fact that the holidays quickly follow the falling leaves. But, the 'up side' is - I have started my Christmas Basket!

A few posts ago, I mentioned that I wanted to bring a basket of completed items to my family celebration and let the recipients choose their own gifts. The basket will (hopefully) contain scarves, mittens, hats, who knows what else ... and bracelets!

I bought these 2 kits from Earth Faire and I must say - I LOVE THEM! They are pretty, fun to do and it is so interesting to watch the finished piece develop.

Maybe they should go on your gift lists too?

Remember .... Inspire Art! Create Art! Buy Art! Be ART!! ... Comments, please!

Your bracelets are so pretty! I can't wait to make mine. They use my favorite kind of clasp, too; you don't need to have three hands to put them on. LOL

I love the Christmas basket idea, to the extent that I'm trying to figure out how I could implement it long distance. (I'm not sure if my family would be game to try something like this, but I can float the idea when we're back there on vacation. Who knows? They may surprise me.)

Very pretty bracelets. Did they take long to make?

Your basket idea is great :)
