Fiskars Hexagon Design Set & Expansion Pack Blog Hop

I know, I know.

It has been incredibly long since I have last posted on my blog. Summer was unexpectedly busy, and fun.
I also had some very last-minute changes to my employment just as school was starting for everyone at the end of August.

With all that has been going on, I am still crafting away any chance I can get.
I am very excited for Fall.
I always feel it is a time for renewal. School is starting. New clothes, new school supplies, and we all settle back into a routine. There are just a few things I am excited for this year during the Autumn season:

1. I usually stay away from Bath & Body Works during this season because I am a sucker for all their fall scents. But I had to make a stop for a gift & just died over this:

 I will definitely be burning my new Pumpkin Cupcake & Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin candles in this lovely luminary.

 2. Cardigans. I know I live in one of the hottest places in the USA. Texas. But I still love a good comfy sweater. Loved this one I found recently on one of my favorite online boutiques:  photo cardigan_zps742db8c6.jpg

 3. Deep Purple Accessories. Been searching for a purse also in the color. I have never really been a purple person, but this fall I am in love with Plum.

 This is also from the boutique found here

4. Yummy Jewelry
This summer I found a great jewelry company with a beautiful story & so much heart. This company designs jewelry from materials that are created by women from around the world. They just had a Fall Collection release last month and this is one of my favorite pieces:

This piece is a mix of 4 different products created by women from around the world including: leaves, bamboo rings, silks, and banana fibers. If you want to learn more about Color By Amber & their lovely jewelry go here.

 5. Last, but not least, I am so excited for the release of a new die for my Fuse Creativity System. The Hexagon!

I can't wait to create something with the Expansion Die & that old-fashioned soda sign. This die is currently available at JoAnn Fabric and Crafts.
