Pumpkinly Autumn

A pumpkin is truly one of those special facets of fall. Pumpkins are great for eating, decorating…and putting on cards! Take a look at the newest addition to my etsy shop {PiecefulJoy.etsy.com}. Check out the etsy shop for additional pictures and detailed description for this adorable pumpkin card.

Busy Weekend!

It’s been a busy weekend! I’ve made a few cuties…now I have to decide which ones will be saved for an upcoming craft fair or my Etsy shop {PiecefulJoy.etsy.com}. What do you think?

Fall into Autumn with Me

Today my husband and I stopped at a local pumpkin, apple and squash stand. We discovered it last year and fell in love with its apples, gourds, ciders and super prices! For only $4, we adopted 6 lovely pumpkins and 6 unique gourds. This year the quaint stand had white pumpkins! I put these little cuties to work on one of our expedit’s shelves {go to http://www.ikea.com and search for “expedit”; we have the one with 25 shelves.}.

Something else I enjoy about autumn is the yummy food that’s eaten this time of year….such as pumpkin pie…acorn squash with brown sugar…or Emeril Lagasse’s “Hot Buttered Rum.” This recipe can be found on http://www.foodtv.com…and I think I’m going to go have some of this yummy drink while I listen to the fall breezes through the open window and work on some more cards for my Etsy shop. Enjoy the recipe!


  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • Pinch ground cloves
  • Pinch salt
  • Bottle dark rum
  • Boiling water


In a bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. Refrigerate until almost firm. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the butter mixture into 12 small mugs. Pour about 3 ounces of rum into each mug (filling about halfway). Top with boiling water (to fill the remaining half), stir well, and serve immediately.
