Monday Musings

I've always loved the fall.  I love all the seasons but if I had to pick a favorite, I think it would have to be fall.
I love the feeling in the air as the temperature drops.  I love seeing the trees changing colors and the woods around my house become a gigantic coloring book.  I get so excited when I can put away my summer shorts and pull out my sweaters.
But most of all, when I was a kid, I loved starting school again. 
I know most people dreaded heading back to school after summer vacation, but not me.  School was a time of new beginnings.  An opportunity to do things a little differently.  And so much exciting stuff to learn!
My Poppop taught me that you should never stop learning.  He said you should always learn something new every day. 
I guess it's why I like teaching myself new techniques with my jewelry.  It's always a challenge to get started, but what a great feeling when you've finally figured it all out.
I hope this September finds you looking forward to learning something new and trying something new as well.

  1. I also loved going back to school & looked forward to it throughout the whole summer haha! I loved then, as I do now, to learn. I purposely look for ways to challenge myself in my craft. There is always an opportunity to learn something each day and I try to maximize on all I can! :)
