October is here, and I can’t be more excited! Fall, the last quarter of the year, and the welcome of EVERYTHING Pumpkin is also here! This is by far my favorite season, and I can't wait to share everything I have planned for the last 90 days of the year with you!
This summer was different than the summers I am used to. I am in a new house, new state, new town, new everything. I can’t help but feeling excited about exploring this new area and to experience the drastically different seasons that PA has to offer in compare to CA. Summer was humid, and we were so busy adjusting, that it went by very fast. I have met new people and entrepreneurs. We have done great progress in the house renovation, and we even chose a date, and location for our wedding. I kid you not, when I said, we were busy!
Paperloveme is slowly adjusting too, and a few exciting things happened in September. I have had the pleasure of working with beautiful local art studios all over the Lehigh Valley and Bucks County. Paint on Main, The Craftery, and The Art Establishment host my classes, and have allowed me to connect and meet great people here. I have also work with bigger companies in Philadelphia like Anthropologie. All of these small and big businesses have open their arms to me, and have welcomed me so warmly that I am so immensely grateful to them. In addition, I was honored to be part of the Fall Issue: Arts and Culture in the Fig Magazine. They create a beautiful article and capture a little bit of my studio.
Now that we are officially Fall, leaves are starting to fall and soon enough, they will be crunchy and ready to step onto them (my favorite activity in the Fall). I also LOVE doing DIY art projects around the house, specially for Halloween. I am not a football fan, so whenever Jeremy is watching football, you will find me doing a DIY project with pumpkins or something. Here is the link to my Pinterest board where you will find everything I love for the season, from suggested movies to watch, to pumpkin decor, to customs, to snacks recipes for your Halloween party. Everything you need to put you in the Halloween mood!
Another reason why I am SO freaking excited about October is that I will be coming to the Bay Area! Yay!! I am surprising my dad for his birthday… shhh!! don’t tell him! I will be visiting my family and friends. But also, I will be teaching two classes: Modern Calligraphy for Beginners and Watercolor Brush Calligraphy at The Craft Makers Studio in Pleasanton, CA on October 27th. Classes are almost full, catch your seat while you can! Register here.
