Herbst Laune Nametags

After a week of being sick and laying low, I woke up on Monday to a crazy week full of deadlines and meetings. Really not the most fun thing to spend your recovery dealing with, but such is the life of a freelancer. Enough whining.
Thankfully one of the things on my To-Do list was to make some nametags with a fall kind of mood (Herbst Laune). I used some scraps of handmade paper I had on hand. I like how I've been able to curl the paper 'ribbon'; it's so much more textured looking! I'm almost done and I think they'll look nice at the women's breakfast I've helped organize for tomorrow.

Sometimes I find I get overwhelmed with the selection of things, even in my own little craft cabinet. I've found it really helps to tell myself to just work with a certain set of supplies and see what I can come up with; I force myself to be creative, ha ha!  
Do you do this to?

Are you getting in the mood for fall? Have any fun weekend plans?

Great colors! Yeah, there's just a little part of me that could really get in the mood for fall, but the other part of me really wants to enjoy that last little bit of sunshine before I admit to myself that it really is fall.

I hope you're getting better and can get over the hectic work that you have!

I don't think we really ever gotten a real summer here in bay area, so I'm a bit in disbelief that fall is coming!

Btw, great job on re-using the scraps for the colorful projects!

My mother-in-law says the weather in Germany is very nice right now. Yes, I am in the mood for fall and craving apple cider pressed in the market sqare in Germany. All things pumpkin and the ability to wear pants. We have had such a hot summer I am looking forward to wearing something other than shorts which BTW I look horriable in.
