Christmas in September at Crafting by Designs!

Crafting by Designs current challenge is themed "Get ready for Christmas!" The fact that we're starting to think about Christmas (when I swear 2016 JUST started) is terrifying, isn't it? Guess that's my scare for Halloween... it's "almost" Christmas? :-D

I always enjoy sponsoring at CBD... I hope you'll visit and join in the fun.

Below is Michele's snowy winter creation for the Crafting by Designs challenge, to inspire (and maybe slightly scare) you!

Beautiful work from Michele for TAG TUESDAY challenge!

Some cuteness from Michele Storms of Art from the Well blog ... love this tag she created for the Cats & Dogs challenge at Tag Tuesday! Kitty, dog, moon and tea-partiers' bodies from Lunagirl :-)

If you're looking for a fun challenge to inspire, hop on over to Tag Tuesday!

Winner of August Challenge

Last day of August, time to announce the winner of my August 'Anything Goes' challenge. This turned out to have the largest number of entries of any challenge ~ guess I should have done Anything Goes earlier! :-)  I will keep that in mind when I start challenges again in the future...

Yes, this will be the last Lunagirl Moonbeams challenge for a few months. I'm taking a break from challenges, but I'll still be here blogging. will still be open for you, as it has been for nearly 12 years bringing you the best in vintage imagery. And I hope I'll have more time for creating new collage sheets and other goodies for you to discover!

On to the results of this month's random drawing... The lucky challenge winner for August Anything Goes is entry #46 created by Genie of

Congrats to Genie! And thank you to everyone. I hope you'll keep visiting! Have a beautiful, exciting, peaceful, creative Autumn.

Three more days in August means three more days to enter my August "Anything Goes" challenge.

I've decided this will be my last Lunagirl challenge for at least a few months, so don't miss your chance to get in on it :-)

I'll still be sponsoring challenges on other sites, fyi, and I'll still be here blogging... telling you about new collage sheets, sharing the occasional freebie images, and musing in general. So don't go away, keep visiting!

As always, I want to thank the amazing Lunagirl Moonbeams design team... there are links over along the side of the page where you can visit their blogs...
And here is a last August piece from Vicki Romaine of the DT... a pretty card perfect for the end of August and the beginning of Autumn...

ANYTHING GOES... Join my August challenge!

I've never done an Anything Goes challenge before (surprisingly!) and I'm really enjoying all the variety in the entries and the DT creations. Check it out, and join in!

Here is more inspiration from the DT... These are all rather serene, don't you think? They suit my mood well today, on this lazy late summer day. The day is hot but the light is slanted in that August way, and the summer locusts are in full chorus, so I know autumn is quietly moving closer.
