Brrr.....that's what I thought when I first woke this morning, as our bedroom window was completely open and the curtains were blowing in the breeze. As I wiped the sleep from my eyes I could see why it was so cold.....the sky was white and thick; no clouds in sight. I guess I didn't quite believe the weatherman on yesterday mornings news. He acutally had the nerve to forcast snow around our area of Oregon. Crazy, I tell ya! It's not even October and we might have some snow?!? Seriously? It was hard to believe because yesterday was warm and sunny and today.....completely white sky. Deep down, I do have to admit I'm a bit excited for the change in season. It has been a very hot and dry summer and while I've enjoyed the beauty of it all and being outdoors, the cooler air is much more appealing to me. Though....I think it's going to be nice to be in Florida next week to absorb one more week of nice weather. I wonder what the weather is going to be like there? I hope warm and breezy.

This week has gone by pretty quickly for me. I can never decide if that is ever a good thing or a bad thing. I worked at my beloved LSS Sunday through Wednesday and enjoyed myself as usual. I had some time to play in between customers and created a few pages that I will share below :) I had the day off yesterday, so after a lazy morning and too much coffee, I hit Barnes and Noble to get a few books for my trip. I think I scored and found 2 really good chick-flick-type books that will keep me out of pure boredom on the long flight to Florida on Tuesday. I decided to go first class on this trip, so I'm hoping they have some sort of moving playing or something to entertain me ha!. I am not someone who sits still very well for 6 hours at a time! I need music a movie....something stimulating other than watching the man next to me do business on his laptop or the stuardess trying to put on her best friendly face... Though.... I do plan on taking full advantage of a few glasses of champagne and just enjoying myself. Okay..nuff about that!

I'm excited to share that the lovely girls at a new french site called, Scrap Notes have asked me to be their very first guest designer for the grand opening of their site in October. What a cool honor! Thanks ladies!

I will also be a guest designer for http://www.scrapmagie.com/ in November. I checked out their site and the kits are amazing and the past guest designers are people like Rhonna Farrer, Karen Russell and many other amazing people.......so as you can imagine, I was quite honored to be asked to do this!

Well, my coffee cup is empty and I need to hit the shower and do some primping :) I get to open up the shop today for Suzie! I'm hoping it's a busy day and people are in the mood for shopping.

Enjoy your weekend!!!

Hugs, Tessa Ann Watte`

Just wanted to wish you a good trip as I won't see you tomorrow, I know you'll have a great time! the store is 'mostly' put back together, a lot of 're-merchandising'....shuffling things around. Weird, busy Sunday, it flew by! Call me if you need anything tomorrow!

Love the new lo's. I saw them at sb.com! I can't believe that you have a chance of snow up there. We have 63 degree mornings and I am excited but then by afternoon it is is the 80's again :( I hope you have a good week. I have some new kits up for etsy if you want to check them out at my blog. Have a good one!


Beautiful layouts!
I always check your blog, I'm a fan of your work. Saturday we had a crop meeting at my friend's house, and we did layouts based on the the sketch you did for Pencil Lines. I chose the sketch, and all the girls loved it! Check it out in my blog if you can, sorry the blog is in Portuguese... (we live in Brazil, so...)
