I also wanted to let you know that I have reopened my etsy store after being closed for a couple of months to enjoy some time with my family and friends.  I hope all of you have been able to do the same.  Even though I love the Fall and am looking forward to the cooler weather, it is hard for me to believe that summer is finally starting to wind down.  How time flies.

Hugs! Carol
