Waiting for Halloween & Other Stuff

I am soooo proud of my new blog banner!!! :)
What do you think?

As you know Summer is not my favorite season.
While sitting on the sofa, trying to breathe and not to sweat, I usually focus on the coming of Fall. :)
This month my social check will expire and there are no jobs on sight... it's very disheartening. Luckily, my hubby has been working a few weeks during the last 3 months and we could pay our bills and his heart checkups. On Thursday he'll know wether he has to undergo cardioversion or not. Cross your fingers!

Going back to my longing for Fall, I have drawn a sugar skull.

In my previous post I wrote about a handmade gift for my Daddy's birthday.
Now I can show it to you!
I have made a card and filled it with some mandala drawings and a card with wishes from all of our family.
The actual gift was a Smartphone (because mine is a technologic Dad... ehehe). So we made a cardboard gift box and decorated it.
And here they are!

As staying in front of my PC is almost impossible due to the hot weather, I have picked up my Doodle Moleskine and made some new pages.

Have a great week!

    Not a summer or winter lover here as my fibromyalgia really flares up during these types of weather so can empathise...
