It's that time of year again. The spookiest, creepiest, scariest time of year.
And to celebrate this spookiest of all months, I've added a bunch of new Halloween patterns. Everything from bracelets to necklaces (and even a few pen wraps). There is a pattern for everyone.

Today is a difficult day for our house. We started the day with a trip to the Orthopedic Pediatrician. Just a check up, nothing to difficult. But that's not the difficult part.
One year ago we lost one of cats to cancer. I wrote a long tear-filled blog post when it happened, but I could not bring myself to post it. It was hard. You would think working in veterinary oncology for 6 years would make it easier to deal, but it wasn't. I knew what it was the first time I noticed the tumor. I knew what a tumor looked like and what it felt like and I know the prognosis for oral squamous cell carcinoma. But it didn't lessen the blow one bit. Then seeing a friend and college instantly look at me with that look when he checked her out, hit me harder then I expected. I knew. I knew what is was before he checked, but you always hope it's nothing and you are over reacting.
It was hard. So very hard.
It was hard because she was such a good cat and she had the most amazing relationship with my daughter. She waited outside her door every morning and then basically attacked her with headbutts the second she got up. My daughter was only two, but she understands what happened and she still talks about her. I hope that she has at least a little glimmer of a memory of her favorite cat for the rest of her life.
I got a card in the mail yesterday from the vet and started crying immediately. The vet that came to our house and helped her at the end was amazing. She was thoughtful and caring. It made it so much easier to do it in the comfort of our house. Toonces hated car rides and the thought of forcing her into the car was too much for me to bare. It was a peaceful process and we knew she would no longer be in pain.
So today is hard. It's harder then I thought it would be. I've been watching the day approach and I thought I would be okay, but here I am crying. But I'm going to make sure to remember the good times and your sweet little meow (even though you were a beast of a cat).
Today is a sad day, but it is also a day of remembrance. Death is just part of the journey. You will be remembered fluffy butt and you will be celebrated today. We will look at all the funny pictures of you and remember how great of a cat you were. We miss you so much. You were and always will be part of our family.
Summer is coming to an end and it's almost time for cozy sweaters, boots, and pumpkin-flavored everything. I'm sad that summer is over, it's my favorite time of year, but fall is also pretty good (I mean, Halloween is the best). So, I'm celebrating the end of summer with a one day sale! Get 25% off all patterns in my shop.
It's the perfect time to get some spooky accessories or even get started on gifts for the holidays.
But hurry, the sale is today only September 2.
Hello friends, are you on Twitter? I am. I've actually been on Twitter for years, but about a week ago something weird started happening with my account. My main feed wouldn't update and I wasn't able to post. I contacted Twitter and they told me my account was locked and I just had to log in, answer a few questions, and everything would be better. Well, that didn't happen. I tried and tried and tried and nothing happened. I wasn't prompted to do anything when I logged in and no one at Twitter seems to be that much help, so I just decided that I missed posting on Twitter so much that I would start a new account.
So now I am slowly following everyone that I was following and getting it back to what it use to be. So I'm asking you to come and follow me on my new account. My new account is @ThreeFatesArt and I can't wait to see you.
Hey Friend, are you looking for a little quick project to do this weekend? Try a beaded pen cover. They are quick and simple projects that you can make in a few hours. Make those simple pens fancy this weekend.

These covers work on Pilot G2 pens the best, but can be adjusted to fit other pens as well.
And if you're looking for a bigger Halloween project, I have a number of spooky bracelet patterns available.
I can't believe it. I really can't bring myself to believe that it's the end of August all ready. Where did my summer go? I don't want it to leave. I may have been born in the Midwest and lived here all my life, but I was not made for the Midwest. I yearn for warm (dare I say hot) weather and the beaches. I very much dislike the snow and cold. I snowboard and ski, but it's not my favorite thing to do. I'd rather be barefoot and in shorts. But, I digress. I'm sure you could care less about the weather I would love.
What I do have to offer you is a sale. From now until the end of the month (August 31st) everything in my shop is 15% off. It's the perfect time to stock up on some patterns before the holiday rush.

Best of all, you'll get a 25% off coupon that can be used on anything in my shop.

I can't believe it's August already. It's crazy how fast this summer has gone. It's been crazy in my little household. I taught a class for the whole month of July. My daughter had her first dentist appointment. She started swim class (and graduated to the next level). My husband and I built her a little play set in our backyard. It's been a crazy couple of months.
But I feel like I'm forgetting something, oh yeah, I remember now. My daughter fell off that play set we lovingly built for her and fractured her elbow. Luckily, she only fell from a short distance, but she hit her elbow just right to fracture it. Oh, the fun of parenthood.
So, because of that, we've had some unexpected medical expenses. So I'm having a sale. I'm offering 30% off everything in my shop. It's the perfect time for you to grab some awesome patterns to work on while you're on vacation. You could start getting those Christmas gifts finished up already. I know, who wants to think about Christmas, but let's face it, it will be here before you know it.
Stop by my shop and grab some awesome patterns while helping a little handmade artists out with some medical bills. But hurry, the sale ends August 10th.
