Hello everyone and happy November!

Time is flying as it seems we are in warp speed heading to the Christmas holidays!  

When I think of the fast approaching holidays, I think of handmade ornaments, home decor pieces or gifts for friends and family.  Perhaps this month, you will discover something here that will inspire you in your holiday creations.  

The lovely Annette Green is hosting this month's art adventure titled 
"You Have Me In Stitches".

I can't wait to see how YOU and my creative cohorts will interpret this theme! I'm guessing anything from actual machine stitching to faux stitching for those of us who are "sewing impaired" will be shared!

I created a mini journal that could be a great little stocking stuffer, given as a gift or keep it for yourself!

I have to admit that I was really inspired by my dear friend Cheryl Grigsby's "Wishy Woman" art journal pages from last month's challenge. I thought her woman was just so very cool and I needed to use something very similar to her for my cover!  

I also used a lovely sentiment stamp from another of our Creative Cohorts, Yvonne Blair.  You can find her vast array of wonderful stamps through Impression Obsessions.

Now, head on over to MY BLOG, where I will share a pictorial tutorial with you for creating this easy mini journal!

Be sure to join us all this month by posting your "You Have Me In Stitches" creation to our community blog and share your thoughts and process with others!
