I don't know where November is going, but it always, every year, feels like there's just not enough time to enjoy Thanksgiving and Halloween, so I like to push pause every now and then. 

And my favorite way to push pause, as I did on a recent live, is to use Christmas/Winter stuff to make fall stuff and that's what I'm doing today.

I spent many an hour upstairs on a pile of blankets in our linen closet reading Peanuts books. We didn't have a TV during this period, so I never saw the movies, and honestly, once I did see them as an adult, I found them disappointing - as I do most movies that are made from books I loved. They just live so large in your head, that someone else's "vision" of them just never lines up. 

So to me, the Great Pumpkin narrative had a very different feel than the movie - it was such a special part of the entire Peanuts canon, I think.

So today, I turned a Christmas sweater die into a Charlie Brown shirt! I doubled up the little chevron, which is actually meant to go up on the shoulder portion of the sweater. I used these pumpkin dies, and cracked myself up when I found this sentiment lurking in my Airtable. We should never forget the Great Pumpkin!
