I actually love the month of September….back to school, farmer’s markets, cooler weather, football season, new TV shows, Stampin’ Up! Regionals, and one of the things I love most about this time of year … sunflowers! They are so bright and cheery and just make me happy!
We have a big field at the side of out house where tons of sunflowers grow. My girls are so tired of me saying every time we drive by, "Look at the pretty sunflowers!" I even made them go for a walk to cut a bunch of stems to put in a jar for our house. Here’s a picture from our walk. How can any one think of these as pesky weeds?!Well a couple of days ago when I drove home from work, and just look at what my sunflower field looked like:They must be getting ready to build something because it’s just a huge pile of boring dirt – I’m so sad and sincerely getting a little bit teary as I type this. Maybe they'll build somthing really cool like a Krispy Kreme, that might make it a little bit better.
To fill my sunflower void, I attempted to make one out of paper. I wanted it to look realistic - the hardest part was trying to get the center to have that velvety texture of the real blossoms. I think it turned out alright. It wasn't even that hard to make. I used the Scallop Circle Die - let me know if you'd be interested in directions.
Happy September Everyone!!!
